Height: 5'9

Default Down my first size!!

I decided that while I was waiting on my prescriptions at Walmart, that I was going to go try a pair of size 26 jeans. I just wanted to see how close I was to fitting in them. Wellll...guess what!! They went all the way up over my butt and they buttoned!! I bought 2 pairs!! And then I came home and threw all my pants that are too big away. No going back!!

350lbs by 2/28 - my son's birthday (met on 2/11!) 340lbs = 10% gone!(met on 2/23!) 320lbs by 4/15 - trip to Waverly Hills!! 300lbs by 5/27 - Memorial weekend camping trip 275lbs by Fourth of July - I weigh the same as my hubby! 202lbs I will no longer be obese
Professional photo shoot with my family and the NEW me!! I get to spend my $630. That's $3 per pound lost..

1 for every 10lbs lost..

You go girl! I need to do the same and stop holding onto outgrown clothes! Congrats for the smaller size!

Calorie counting gave me a method to fix the madness.

A high protein, moderate carb balance gives me control over cravings.

Congratulations ~ that is so wonderful! I think throwing away the too large clothes is an excellent idea. I did the same thing earlier this year. In the past when I would try to lose weight and fail I always held onto those larger sized clothes as a fail safe. But we have worked too hard to go back now- right!? This kind of of attitude will make you successful in your weight loss goal You got it kid!
