jaimie1980- Wow girl, you have made a lot of progress!! Don't you just daydream and think where will I be in 6 months from now and how much different will I look? I always do haha! It's very exciting losing weight and gaining energy. I have gotten more energy in the last week. I use Premier Protein shakes and bars which I can get fairly reasonable at Sam's Club or Costco! I too have an apple shape 😧, but I think apple shapes tend to lose weight quicker in their bellies, idk just what I have seen feom experience. I lost 4.5 inches in my waist just in this first week and 8 pounds! Can't wait to see where we are at next week! Hopefully in the 70's!

Hey guys.. just wanted to share a good news..
I weighed in today at 185lb which means I'm officially down 100 pounds from my starting weight of 285....YAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY :D

just hope I can lose another pound or so this week, but it's TOM so won't keep hopes too high ugh lol although I notice I tend to stall before TOM and not during.. anyone else like this?

GREAT job frozen!!! What an amazing accomplishment!!!

FrozenDreams 11-19-2015 01:35 AM

thank you so much guys <3

what have you guys been eating lately? I need more variety for dinner ideas lol

Watercolor 11-19-2015 10:40 AM

I'm doing diabetic low carb, so dinner is protein and lots of veggies. If I have a starchy carb, it's rice, potato or pasta. Try a new veg, fruit, protein.

BV Marie,
You GO girl. 170s here we come!

Watercolor 11-20-2015 08:57 AM

Yo babeeee! Down another pound - now 182.
I haven't seen that number in over 30 years.
This is SO wicked cool! Keep working it, guys!

LesGetFit 11-20-2015 07:01 PM

Way to go, Watercolor! That's great!

jaimie1980 11-21-2015 09:57 AM

Frozen! Congrats on ****100**** pounds lost! That is such an accomplishment!! I am soooo happy for you!!

LESGITFIT, holy smokes, you have lost sooo much in 3 months time. That is amazing!! I am def in the slow phase at this point, losing just 1.5 to 3 a week. Monday is my weigh in day, so hoping for a 185 range.

Watercolor, you will be leaving us soon!! Way to keep at it girl!

BVMarie, YES! I daydream all. the. time. I can't even remember what it was like to just go to the mall and buy something that I thought was cute, rather than something that hides my belly, doesn't cause muffin top, and all the other things I have to worry about. I would love to by something based on appeal rather than how it looks. I cannot wait for the day!!

LesGetFit 11-21-2015 12:19 PM

Thanks Jaimie! I had never dieted before and it was a fairly drastic reduction in calories for me, and I'm also drinking 3 liters of water each day, which I never did before. So I think the shock to my system has made a lot of weight come off in the beginning, haha. My overall rate is about 2.8 lbs/week, but I'm sure it will slow down soon. As long as it keeps going down, I'm ok with that.

I've been fluctuating up a bit, so now I'm at 188.6, and hoping to see the scale go the other way again in the next couple of days. :)

BVMarie 11-22-2015 03:27 PM

Jaimie1980- you hit the nail on the head there! That's so me, trying find clothes that camouflage my belly!! It's really brings me down, but if we keep it up we will be down in size in no time! I used to wear 1x shirts and I'm kinda in between a Large and XL now, so definitely some progress! My belly is really deflating quickly, which I believe is from Diet Coke. I'm done drinking that poison. Blech!!

Updating about my progress. I weighed in this morning, even tho I keep telling myself I won't until Thanksgiving lol, I weighed in at 183.4! Made it past my mini goal and 5 days early! Now to set another mini goal of -10. Feels good to know I accomplished my goal and stuck with it!

jaimie1980 11-22-2015 04:47 PM

Congrats Marie! On to a new goal!! I am still in the xl size- I can wear a large but they are just a bit too tight for my taste. I was in XXL so atleast its something. Lucky for me I have lost this weight before so I still have a ton of clothes in those sizes so I don't need to get new.

LesGetFit, you are way past halfway, so keep up whatever it is that is working! I have had a horribly slow week this week, super sad about that. I did go down to 187 today, but I held steady or up a tish the rest of the week. Definitely a bummer, my Christmas goal is looking to be unrealistic now. BOO!! My WHOOSH days seem to be over.

BVMarie 11-23-2015 01:50 PM

Don't get discouraged Jaimie! I tell myself it can be worse and at least I'm eating healthy now. Things will get better. You're lucky you have clothes you can transition in to. I sold all mine after 4 years of not getting back to my normal size :( I needed more room in my closet for my big clothes and maternity stuff. Is it sad I still wear maternity pants because I like how it holds in my tummy fat? Lol! Hopefully I can get past that.
