    Default 40 pounds gone! Work in progress....

    I finally decided to get back on track after almost 3 years of being miserable and trying diets that continually failed. Before starting the diet I couldn't walk far without being out of breath. My knees hurt, my back kept going out and I was often depressed. Although I'm still working on me, I can now report I feel like a new woman. I workout 6 days a week, I ran a 5k last week, and I'm no longer out of breath walking short distances! My body doesn't ache, my skin cleared up and I sleep like a baby. I could say I wished I did this sooner but the fact is I wasn't ready. Now I am and nothing can stop me!!


    Here's my stats:

    You are one Hot Mama! Look at you go!


    Our stats & body shape are very similar - except you look way better in tight clothes than I do at this weight. You should (if you want) post this on mybodygallery.com -What real women look like.
    You look absolutely fabulous and I can see the empowerment you feel in your eyes.

    HAHA thank you - you are doing wonderful as well!!!! You know it's weird because my fat has been shifting around to weird places did you notice that? Also, I'm having the hardest time getting my arms to slim down. They've gone done 2 inches while the rest of my body is 3+ inches for each area. I know it's a stubborn area but I'm working my workouts help. I've even up'd my water....sigh

    Meme Rose,

    Yes! I have noticed that. I lost a lot of weight off my back, sides and stomach. However that little pouch below the waist doesn't want to go away and legs drive me crazy especially my inner thighs. They seem to look bigger to me now. Arms almost zero weight loss. It is funny how it shifts but at least those problem areas will eventually go away just by losing the fat and later from toning it up! Keep going!!! You already look fabulous.
