Truly amazing!@!@! Great work. It really is inspirational listening to stories such as yours. I can't believe what a transformation your dieting, exercise, and hard work has caused. My story is just beginning but I feel like I am somewhat of an expert with regards to weight loss. I hope that through my plan I can keep losing the way you did Amanda! Congrats once again!!!

Love your wedding pic, you both look fab!
Don't you hate how we're always referred to as 'a friend'?

Weightloss - thanks!

Kristin - LOL on the "friend" thing. We're officially legally married, so we pretty much correct that now, when it comes up...

I have realized that I didn't believe "it" would ever work. I'm starting to now!

Amanda, congratulations!

Question for you. This sounds silly, but can you remember your first day or two of the diet? How did you get through them? how long did it take to "get going"? This is my problem. It seems so easy to surmount, but every evening I get tired and sabotage myself. Any tips appreciated!

You look fab!

Lizcar - it definitely CAN work. I'm proof of that, as are so many others here at 3FC. Keep going!

Cleo...All I can say is that you have to make a COMMITMENT to doing this. Pick a time period. Decide that, for two weeks, you're going to do X, Y, and Z healthy behaviors. I actually made myself a sticker chart - stickers for each behavior I did (stayed under calorie goal, cardio, strength training, etc) leading up to a reward when I got so many in a week. After a week or so, it gets a LOT easier...then you just make the commitment to keep going!

I can't believe I didn't get around to checking out this and your photo thread until today. What an amazing and wonderful story; you seem so happy, confident, and simply gorgeous from the inside out. You've also got me feeling giddy here at my own possibilities of the future. I've barely restarted on my weight-loss journey and seeing those that have done so well makes for a great push!

Oh, and I just love the wedding photo on your profile, you two make such a cute couple!!!
