Thanks for stoppin' by! Below you will find the journey of my ever changing figure. In January 2007 I applied to be on the Biggest Loser and after making it a few steps into the process and coming just short of going on the show, I knew I needed to do something about my weight (I mean I was almost on a weightloss show for heavens sakes!) Starting in March of '07 I threw all my excuses away and threw myself completely into an active and healthy lifestyle and I dropped almost 100 lbs by November.

We then decided we wanted to try for baby #2 and I was pregnant by Jan '08. The pregnancy was a lot more difficult than I had ever expected, but thankfully it's over, we have another beautiful little girl, and I am back in control of my body again. For me it's all about control. I can use buzz words like 'mindless' or 'emotional' eating, but I know what I am doing when I do it. Sometimes I find myself eating in defiance, if that makes any sense. Weightloss to me is so much more mental than physical, and though I look back on what I accomplished last year and think of how healthy I looked, at the time I still wasn't happy. Some call it a distorted self image, I call it being a woman.

Anyway, so it goes, here I stand after all of that and I gained half of my weight back and I'm getting ready to do it again. I can't say I am not a bit unsure of exactly what kind of road I will meet this time, but I am excited to get my health back and to feel like myself again.

That's my update for now Below you will find my pics starting in March '07 to Nov '07, and then my newest progression starting now, in Nov '08.

Starting weight 251




20 lbs

30 lbs

60 lbs

80 lbs

90 lbs

Cheese


************************************************** *****

5 weeks pregnant

39 weeks preggies

Here we go again

Wow! You look awesome! I have been doing something similar. I have kept my calories between 1200 and 1500 as well and trying to exercise regularly, but not quite hitting the 30 minutes a day yet. More like an hour every other day, but I'm trying. It is encouraging for me to hear someone with a similar plan with such great results!

Congratualtions, that is amazing! I am so glad to see that someone real can lose weight. I am at 248 right now and I would love to be down to about 140-150 range. I see that your daughter's first birthday was 3/7/07, my youngest daughter's first birthday was 3/8/07.

You did so well with your weight loss. I'm impressed...My starting weight is about the same and I am only a few inches taller than you. You look great and I bet you will have a very cute baby bump!

Wow, what an inspiration you are. You lost the amount I needed to (need about 85 more now lol)
And congrats on the pregnancy! Here's to a happy & healthy 9 mths! And I don't see anything wrong with how your belly looks. All REAL women have stretch marks!
