Happierme88 and Wannaskipadlaugh hope the loss comes quick for you!!! Cheering you on for your goals!!!!

Holding at 194 today!!! Still on plan to change my tracker when I get to 188 - getting more psyched to do it and not struggling so much with the numbers - one foot in front of the other and moving forward!!! So happy I started this journey!!!!

IAN 70's lbs down WOW and a

That is just mind blowing and awesome. OOOOHH how do you feel? Do you feel lighter? Did you ever imagine being this low in weight by Memorial Day? Have you taken before and after pictures? I have been taking side shots and wish I had been taking front and back... but at least I have something to show where I came from.

You are a marvel and yes... I think you need to write a book (YOU WILL MAKE BIG $$$$) calling it the beer diet!!

Thanks Sue. I do feel much lighter, but not quite light enough yet. Being able to run was a big plus for me, but I still feel the weight in my knees. As for the book, I might give that a go. The problem is that beer only seems to work for me! Everyone else seems to give in to the munchies.

Really, the beer diet is quite simple. It's just light breakfast, salad for lunch and beer only (or wine) for dinner. Drink as much as you like. Lose some weight, and then add some exercise when you are comfortable with that and you are good to go.

Anyway, here are some before and after pics although I like to think I carried my weight nicely at 280lbs.

Before:



And 70lbs down, with beer:

WOW Ian, you look incredible!!! You're an inspiration to me!! And I like your diet/ lifestyle method. It sounds very similar to mine...Ive finally realized Im not really doing atkins...I mean sure, Im not eating bread, and I eat a lot of cheese and meat and veggies...but I also drink wine on a daily basis. I think it all comes down to moderation and exercise in the end =)

Sue, how does it feel to be so close to losing 50 pounds?? That's quite an accomplishment! When did you start on this journey?

Lulu, thank you for the support! Im glad we all started this journey and have been able to inspire each other to keep going...I probably would still be 20 pounds heavier without you guys to cheer me along =)

Kate, welcome back to the challenges! We missed you on the last one!

And lastly, my real person name is Christine, but feel free to still call me happierme if you want =)

SW: 203.5
GW: 198.5 (ONEderland!)

5/27: 201.5 ( Completely shocked...its gotta be water weight...although im not complaining...)

Thanks Sue and Christine for all the support and <blush>! Christine, delighted to hear you are not really doing Atkins. I am not really doing Intermittant Fasting either! I used to think I was (I skip dinner) until they told me I was not because beer does not technically count as fasting. Screw them!

So the biggest lesson for me is you have to find a diet that works for you, whether it has a name or not!

And Sue, congrats on being 261lbs, nearly 50 down! I remember 261lbs very well. And it felt great! I think I bought a new outfit around then and went to a big party. One of the best nights I had had out in a long time. And my first new outfit in a long, long time too. I have not had a better night out since!
