~20 to go. This picture actually shows -45 lbs. I'm 25 years old and graduated with my Bachelor's degree a year ago. I gained A LOT of weight in college. I was working 2-3 jobs and going to school for 10-12 hours a day. I decided to take up running in March 2012 and started on the Couch to 5k program. I "graduated" the program in April 2012 and continued running, working my way up to 6 miles and running an average of 3 1/2-4 miles 5x a week. I am pretty strict with what I eat and watch my calories like a hawk. I lost 45 pounds between March and today. The other 5 were lost back in November 2011 when I went to the gym for a month lol.
Hoping this inspires someone out there. If I can do this, anyone can. No crazy diets, no pills, no surgery, just pure hard work and counting calories. Still need to lose about 20 more.
Added a newer picture that actually shows a 50 pound loss. This is me on Halloween 2011 vs. July 21, 2012. I ran my second 5k after this picture in 32:15
