I didn't do anything specifically so I think I was blessed with what I got. The women in our family have always had good muscle tone (and we're all heavier).

I did however really excersise a lot in my teenage years (I used to cross country ski like a fanatic, my body USED to be a machine LOL) and I think with IP that muscle tone stayed with me.

There is loose skin there though, I can still pretend to fly away! But I have had fitness friends say that they look good considering...again, nothing specific sorry :/

Thanks Peeps!

I was able to run...I just went to the gym and jumped on the treadmill and decided "lets see what this body can do".

I did 20 minute run, 2 minute walk and a 20 minute run. With warm up and cool down 55 minutes. I ran at 4 miles an hour for the entire time of both 20 minutes. It was AWESOME.

Now I'm waiting for my leg to heal (another minor surgery)...I'm chomping at the bit to do it again...who would have thought I'd be that excited to run.

It feel great and I felt powerful.

I LOVE IDEAL PROTEIN! (in case your wondering!)

O, my word WOW!! WOW! WOW!

You look amazing! I read your reply's in this thread. Did you weight lift while you were losing or did you get your toned look only from your past skiing?

I hope your leg heal fast.

No, I didn't do anything specific during my IP journey.

I think I was blessed...my mom lost a lot of weight too and when she flexed her calf muscle she looked like a body builder, you could see the definition of a few different muscle groups...wish I had taken a picture at the time. I don't think I knew how blessed I was until I recieved all the compliments on here....didn't know I looked that toned actually.

Hey ladies! Thanks for the comments, I like to come back here for a little focus boost!

Still running, planning on one today, I was told I looked like a gazelle on the treadmill the other day.

I found the girl in me and now wear sundresses! Who would have thunk!
