Default over 140 lbs lost. So much more gained.

I can finally say it! GOAL MET!!

One year, 4 months later and i have lost over 140 pounds. I ate healthy and worked out regularly. I didn't use a magic pill or special diet, Just simple calories in calories out. I have a fitbit and used myfitness pal for part of my weight loss. Its a lifestyle change i will stick to the rest of my life.

Many things have changed in my life besides just the weight loss. I feel like a whole new person. I couldn't do simple things like rake leaves or go for a walk for fear of the chub rub. I would literally be in pain. I am happy to say now i run 6 miles every day and don't even feel out of breath. Thats probably the biggest achievement for me… Being free from the prison i was in, Being able to move. I actually love to exercise now.

Going in public is no longer a shameful thing. I used to turn a blind eye to everyone and everything. I think to shield myself from the stares. Now my eyes are starting to open again and sadly people treat me better. The world is cruel, something i didn't truly realize until this journey.

I went from a size 26 to a size 6! 300 lbs to 159. I may lose 5-10 more but for the most part i'm ready to use the winter months to hit the gym and tone up!!

Thank you everyone for the kind words! Your all so sweet.

to answer these questions...

I did have loose skin on my lower stomach but jump roping has tightened it up. i only have to jump rope a minute a day and it seems to tighten those muscles. I work out on the elliptical for 30 min a day if its to cold to run my 6 miles. I do have some on my arms but i don't work them out as much as i should and i think if i lifted weights it would go away. I was really discouraged when i got down to 190. I had so much loose skin i felt worse than i did when i was at 300. I felt flawed and like i couldn't fix it without surgery. Working out religiously has defiantly changed that, it took a good 4 months but hard work has paid off. I'll probably never wear a bikini but i never have anyways! lol.

I started with 1600 calories a day and i'm down to 1200 a day. I will probably stick to the 1200 a day and just treat myself once a week to a "normal" meal as when i do that i tend to stay the same weight all week. I think it would be way to easy for me to fall into the trap of eating high calorie foods. I think dieting is something i'll just have to do for the rest of my life. I feel really good on the foods i've been eating so i'll stick to it and when i go out with the girls i can maybe eat that fried shrimp i love so much or enjoy that margarita I'll stick to weighing myself every morning to keep on track.
