Default 100 lbs down!

I started changing my life on August 22, 2010. I weighed in at 269 lbs. I have no good before pics, but here I am in February 2010. I know I put on weight between February and August because my size 22s fit well in February but were tight and too small in August.



By November I had lost around 35 lbs....and those 22s were fitting again.



As an aside, my husband has lost around 50 lbs since that November pic was taken.

I took a peek at the scale this morning and saw 169.4 lbs, so while I haven't officially hit that 100 lbs lost milestone it WILL happen this week. So here I am....11 months into this journey....



I'm wearing a size 12 and larges now. I'm in "sick bay" recovering from surgery and limited to just some walking right now, but I can't wait to get back to exercising to keep toning and building muscle.

New goal is to get my weight into the "healthy" BMI category which means losing another 25 lbs. I've never been even close to this thin before, so I have no idea what I'll look and feel like at an even lower weight!

Thanks for looking. Onward and downward!

Congratulations on your success and your goals! I am glad to hear you are recovering well from your surgery and keeping up your healthy habits through the whole process.
Also, thanks for all your advice and help over the past few months. They have helped me quite a bit

I'm primarily a runner. I love running. I cross train with things like yoga, 30 Day Shred or other interval training to get a whole body workout. Nothing fancy, just well-rounded intervals with body weight exercises.

Thanks for all the fresh comments! Recovery from surgery went very well and I'm back at it and better than ever.

This has me thinking that I should upload some new photos. Even though I've only lost about 15lbs since these were taken, I think that the fat loss/muscle gain has made a pretty big physical difference.
