Default Goal! 82 Pounds Down: 217 to 135 (pics)

Today is the day. I officially reached the goal I set for myself just over nine months ago. This site has been an invaluable source of information and support to me along this journey. I set this goal back when it seemed completely far away and unattainable. Now that I'm here I realize I still have plenty left to go, so I've reset my goal to 125 and I'll see how I feel once I get there. Despite being only 5'0, I have a very large frame, so I can't imagine getting much lower than that, but time will tell.

I began my journey shortly before Memorial Day weekend, 2011. I had no specific plan, but as May became June, things started falling into place. I started at 217 and weighed in at 134.9 this morning after tap dancing around 135 for a couple days.

I have PCOS and insulin resistance, so low carb (60/day) low calorie (1200/day) with a splash of calorie and carb cycling to keep my body guessing was how I achieved my results. In addition to cardio and strength training (mostly resistance bands as I still detest weights, despite trying to like them). I also take part in intermittent fasting (fast from 7pm-noon) because it seems to work best for my lifestyle. Eating breakfast always made be nauseous (despite breakfast being some of my favorite foods). I had what I'd consider a severe carbohydrate addiction. Kicking that was hard, but freeing. I love that I no longer crave food and I don't miss carbs at all.

On to the pictures...I do not have very many pictures of myself before I started my journey. I avoided the camera, so I did not take official before pics. The best ones I have are from a May 2011 trip to Alaska, which was about two weeks before I started, so they're exactly my starting weight as luck would have it.

Here goes....the Before at 217, wearing size 16 jeans and XL/1X tops:




And the After...taken tonight at 134.9 pounds, wearing size 6 jeans and a small top:


And a bonus shot with my faithful yellow friend, Henry - he loves the camera, LOL!
