Default 24 Pounds Lost!

Hey! I've been working hard on losing weight since around Halloween time. I was originally 237 pounds, and finally got back to being 213 pounds! I took before and after pictures. They're pretty different! I'm pretty proud of myself. My next goal is to get under 200 pounds, only 14 more pounds to go! YAY ME! I did gain several pounds but I am finally back to 213 pounds after the holidays! :-)

BEFORE

AFTER


What I have been doing so far is strictly portion control. I do allow myself to have chocolates and etc. I just LIMIT my food portions to the saucer plate size. Sandwiches to half a sandwich. Eating more often, every 2 to 3 hours every day whenever I can. I try to exercise as much as I can, but I don't do that much, which is what I would like to change soon.

Great job so far! Your arms and mid-section especially are looking so much slimmer. It sounds like we have the same starting weight and plan pretty much--I also could never give up my chocolate . Isn't 199 so close you just can't wait??? Keep up the hard work and we'll definitely make it there soon.

Hi! Yes, wow! It's pretty cool that we have same starting weight and same goal weight! :-) I did not think there is that much difference in my body shape until I saw the pictures. Pictures do not lie. It's amazing what just 24 pounds can do to your body. Yep, I refuse to give up my chocolate. If I had planned on a diet that is without Chocolate, it is a recipe for failure. That's why I KNEW that chocolate had to be included in my diet. And YES, 199 is SOOO CLOSE I can TASTE it but yet, it's so FAR away! Heh. Yep, I have faith that we will make it there soon. Thank you.

Everyone else - Thank you so much for the positive compliments.
