(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!
