Default 26 weeks ago.........

I started my new lifestyle of eating healthy, exercising and taking my met faithfully( I have PCOS). In those 26 weeks I have dropped 57 lbs and lost 26 1/2 inches from my mid section. I've gone from a tight 20 to a size 10(stretch) 12(non-stretch) jeans. I have tons more energy and for the first time in my life I have 'regular' cycles. In only half a year my life has completely turned around. My self esteem is through the roof and I feel like I'm finally being a good role model for my kids. Just had to share!

Congratulations!! You go girl. Six months doesn't seem like a long time and just look at all the good things you have done for yourself in that time.

Well Done! True inspiration, which right now is exactly what I need to keep me here and not in the fridge. Mind you it is full of tomatoes, green beans and peppers these days

Thumbs up That is great!

That is so cool. Way to go!! I have lost 19 pounds and I feel a good bit better myself but I have 99 more to go to get to my goal wt of 120. What would you say helped you the most? I hope this time I can lose it and KEEP IT OFF! Did you take before and after pictures? I am planning to do that. The ones I have looked at are so inspiring to me!
