Thanks everyone! Ya it was a butt busting journey all right! :) It is hard to believe I made it this far. Mizz, I started around the middle of February... not sure of the exact date, but I'm losing at an average of about 2 pounds a week or so.

Also made it under the 250 mark at the same time... LOL 24x doesn't sound nearly as bad as 25x. :)

Misti what plan are you following ( you may have posted it before but i get lost on here sometime


Just one of my own making... no specific plan; just eating healthy... lots of fruits and veggies, with smaller amounts of proteins, pretty much all kinds of meat but mostly chicken; others in smaller amounts. Nuts... NO junk food at ALL and extremely small amounts of processed foods. Things like healthy breads etc. but NO diet meals, etc. Very small amount of Splenda (mostly avoid artificial sweeteners but haven't given up my latte flavors LOL.. .but I DO buy the stuff and make them myself so I know exactly what is in them!!) Oh and take a multi-vitamin. BTW this plan is supported by my doctor also. I don't count calories or weigh stuff or any of that. Just eat right and exercise.

I also exercise a lot. Started out by walking and added a lot of water aerobics and some Danskin workout balls, etc.

Thanks for asking, and thanks too for the encouragement.

Misti, that's so great to hear! You've been one of my favorite people here to read about with your NSV's and encouragement! I hope the rest of your journey is smooth sailing! By the way, in another post you divulged your age and I gasped when I read it! You're not old by any means, but I honestly guessed from your picture that you were at LEAST 10-15yrs younger! The weight loss makes you shine!!
