S/C/G: 261/see ticker/175

Height: 5'9

Default Goal!! 86lbs lost! (now 100lbs lost!!)

(another edit and I had to post it to the top, because I felt the need to yell it from the rooftops: 100lbs LOST!!!!!!)

I finally reached my goal!! 10 months ago, I wouldn't have thought it possible, but I am now at my pre-firstborn pregnancy weight (coincidentally, her 9th birthday was yesterday). I have four children (and have had five pregnancies) and the weight just packed on. So, I haven't been at this weight in 10 (very) long years. I went from a size 2XL shirt, 22/24 pants to a medium shirt, 10/12 pants.

Here are some before and after pictures...



I couldn't have done this without God, my husband, Leslie Sansone and my wonderful friends here at 3FC and especially the Daily Accountability Group.

I'm thrilled beyond belief to be here!! I may see if I can drop a bit more, but my doctor recommended this goal weight for me. He said with my height and build, he didn't think anything less would be healthy. I still have a bit of a tummy and my legs are a bit jiggly, so I think I'll turn to firming up, building endurance and just enjoying life!

Edited to add: Here is a more recent picture at 93lbs lost! I don't see much of a difference myself, but the pants are a size 8 (different than the earlier ones) and the shirt is still the same as before (though a tad looser). Please, excuse the clothing mess, we're fall cleaning!

Goal Reached: 7/26/2011

for every 5lbs lost!

WOWWWWWWW!!!! If I had only one word to choose, it would be....

I have to admit, when I first scrolled down looking at the "before" pics, all I could think was...WoW..she looks good for 261lbs, but then as I kept going to the "after" pics, I was literally BLOWN AWAY!!! Your gorgeous with an AMAZING figure! 175 lbs I would have never guessed.

BTW, it took me about the same amount of time to lose my weight as well...so I totally share your sentiments of "if I only knew that in 10 months all this could have been..." It's amazing...our bodies...isn't it?

on making your goal...YOU GO GURL!

you look amazing!
Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, handsome, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God

Wow, I really needed to see this today. We are the same height and I'm starting to reconsider 165, and thinking about stopping at 175, which would be another 13lbs from now.

I think you look great, and I am now really re-thinking whether BMI applies to me or not. The me in the mirror is still obese at times, seeing someone else on the screen is kind of a reality check.

Congrats on all your hard work and success. The fact you've been pregnant 5 times astounds me. Wow.a
