Hello! I used these forums a lot last year when I was losing, but haven't been on in a while.
I started losing weight in January 2014
, at a starting weight of 155 and 32% body fat
. I had some interruptions in my life after that, but got back on the horse a few months later, and in June I added some fitness stuff to my routines.
By January 1, 2015
, I was down to my final goal of 125
. Since then, I have maintained my weight (this morning I weighed in at 123.8) and continued to work out regularly, so I've built muscle, lost inches, and lost a dress size since hitting goal. I'm now at around 20-22% body fat
Before- August 2014 - ~155 lbs
Before - December 2014 - 155 lbs, in a size 10 dress
After - July 2015 - 125 lbs, in a size 2 dress
After - July 2015
After - October 2015
Taken before my first-ever workout in June 2014
One year later, in June 2015.
Its been quite a journey, and of course it never really ends (maintenance forever!) but its been so fun too, and I've had a lot of experiences that I wouldn't have ever had otherwise. I am so happy I made this change, and I refuse to go back.
I'll try to check this forum periodically in the next few weeks to respond to any questions
