You are amazing and I want to keep up with your progress, so that I may learn from you!!

I am also around 250 right now and should be around a size 4 normally. I am 5'1" and my BMI is through the roof. I read your first entry and totally "get it"

Congratulations and much love to you.

hi! I saw your post that you have an amazing transformation. and I was so amazed at your progress. having a normal BMI leads to many benefits for your health.most especially for cardiovascular health. I have been also researching on the diets on how to lower cholesterol thru a healthy low-fat diet. calculated macros and calorie tracking work well also.

Once upon a time I weighed 250 lbs. I felt horrible, ugly, tired, and sad. As sad as it is to say...I was in an unhappy marriage, and that didn't help either. The turning point of my life was from a picture of me riding an elephant at our annual Rennaisance Festival. A friend of mine asked me "wow, who is that elephant riding the elephant?" Of course it was me, and then on that same day, my husband purposely didn't introduce me to his friend that he ran into because he was "ashamed" of what i was. (UPDATE! PAGE 31 HAS A NEW ELEPHANT PICTURE OF ME!) But needless to say those horrible moments lit my fire.

I started out slowly, walking three times a week for 20 mins at a time. I cut everything I ate in half. To give you an idea of what I had been eating:

Breakfast: TWO flour tacos of bacon, egg, potato and cheese.

Lunch: Burger, or Chicken Friend Steak, the whole side, and a coke. (fast food, fried food, greasy pizza, the WORKS)

Snack: Carrot cake (every day, the deli in my building had the BEST carrrot Cake)

Dinner: Full meal. With a second serving, and of course desert.

Evening Snack: Usually some chips, or cookies, or a whole quart of ice cream.

**You know, it's really sad when you write it all down and realize how bad you used to eat. Sometimes, thinking about it, gets me a bit emotional, all that food caused me to look like this:






I let food consume me! After I cut all my food intake in half, I started getting results immediately. Before I knew, I fit into size 18's again. Then I increased my work out to walking five times a week. Once that became too easy, I starting mixing in some jogging. I next realized I had to cut out all sweets, junk food, sodas, and I also eliminated red meat and pork. I noticed that my body couldn't digest those foods very well, along with cheese. So I broke up with all of them! It was SOO hard to do, but I don't miss it. So now I just eat chicken, seafood, and turkey. I occasionally enjoy a sweet treat, but I don't over indulge. In a nutshell...CALORIE COUNTING did the trick.

~~An in betweener:




It took me exactly one year to lose 115 lbs. I had no surgery, utilized no diet pills, I did have a trainer for about 6 weeks, but I only lost about 5 lbs during that time. When I went at it alone, I got better results faster. My workout consists of running 3-5 times a week now. I'm up to six miles of running! No walking, or jogging, but running! I can finish it in a little under an hour and I always feel so accomplished afterwards!

I also ditched the mean hubby, and waited a lil over a year to find love again, and I did! So below is my second chance at love along with our lil bundle of joy!

I knew there was a happier person inside me, I just needed to get out of my 115 lb suit that I was wearing for so long! I love shopping now, I love meeting new people, I have confidence, I am no longer tired most importantly!! This website helped me out in so many ways, the stories, and support here is phenomenal. I thank each and every one of you who read this for your time, and motivation, and inspiration! I wish everyone the best on their journey whether you are about to start, doing, or maintaining! Thanks for looking! My name is Sam and I'm 5'4'' 29 years old and 135 lbs wearing a size 6 and some 4's depending on the brand! xoxo


Diet and Exercise got me here:
size 4 135 lbs, size 28 jeans

Size 4 135 lbs

Beautiful success story to read. Thank you for sharing. Your little girl is precious. It's truly amazing how you lost 115 pounds in a year and maintained at your goal weight. Goes to show we are all a lot closer to goal than we realize. Congratulations.
