I started going to the gym and watching what I ate in November of 2010, then FI asked me to marry him (after living together for 18 years geeesh LOL) on my birthday January 26, 2011. By the time he proposed I'd lost about 11 pounds, but the proposal was SUCH a major motivator!! I'm bipolar and my dr. and I were trying to find the right combo of drugs to keep me on a even keel, unfortunately pretty much all of the meds are weight gainers soooo we monitored my weight. At one point he changed me because I had gained a lot quickly, sooooo when I finally got on a regulated dose that works (for most part anyway) and had quit gaining I decided to start losing it. I started by cutting out almost ALL cokes, started eating salads A LOT, and going to the gym 3 days a week (I've been doing 4 times a week for several months now) and I'm taking Alli which is a fat blocker (I've been trying to get my dr. to ok a diet pill for a while so when he said yes to Alli I was really surprised and encouraged!) I started out at 165 which is the most I've ever weighed!! I should also mention that I work for a University and they have a really nice gym facility about a block from the building I work out of and on the days that I go to the gym I don't eat lunch, but have a soy Mocha right after my workout, then for dinner I try to eat a sensible meal. Tonight I had a nice big salad of greens, cherry tomatoes, radishes, a little bacon bits, and croutons with a dijon vinagrette, plus a chicken pot pie. My workouts at the gym have built to the point where I'm now doing a two day dumbell workout that kicks my ass, especially on Mon. and Thur. which are the days for killer split lunges and twenty five pounds of dumbells, squats, and two armed stomach crunches (holding a 15 lb. weight straight up, with knees bent and feet an inch or so off the ground while raising like your reaching for the sky uggggh!) I do two routines that work the whole body split between two days then I have lunch with the FI at the hospital cafeteria on wednesdy and nothing on weekend except a little swimming and working in the yard and a garden/pond area we have that's all flowers low decks and patios......and I should mention that it's been hotter than hell so lots of sweat and squatting LOLOL. I've lost a total of 28 lbs, I'd settle on 130 (another 8-10lbs), but want to get down to 125, I'm 5'3" with short legs :) I still have another 46 days to go and with all the inspiration I've gotten here the 8 to 10 could be doable if I stick to not snacking at all and push myself harder at the gym.  The first picture is a size 12 at Thanksgiving so I'd already been working out about a month then. The in progress pictures are a size 8 and was taken June 16th right after an all nighter waiting on our 7th grandchild to be born. Size 8 is now kind of baggy but a 7 is too tight on the thighs, I've lost over 2 inches too!!


I started going to photo 3054922-1


My mother, son, and of course me.... :)


I started going to photo 3054922-2


I've really toned my arms, butt, and thighs, if only I could get rid of the baby pooch...:(


I started going to photo 3054922-3


I know neither is a great pic, I'll try to post another, it's usually me taking them and I feel weird taking one in the mirror....I'm really hoping to feel good enough by August to do some DIY B-Pics, but my ultimate goal isn't my form fitting beautiful dress, it's to have that 50 year old Bo-Flex body BEFORE I hit 50 LOLOL  and I want to wear a bikini again!! Thanks for all the inspiration, and I WILL be checking back frequently!! XoXo

Took monday off and worked in the yard most of the day so I didn't weigh in until Tues. and the scale read 136.8 of course this is the middle of the afternoon and supposedly your true weight is first thing after you pee in the early morning. Sooooo Sat. I dug out my old scales set them to 0 and stepped up and according to them I weighed exactly 130! God I hope that's right, it would mean I only need another 5 pounds to get back to my normal weight!! I do know that my shoes weigh 1 and a 1/2 pounds so Tue. weight would really be 135 with clothes and the coffee I've drunk during the morning LOL.....I'm beginning to finally feel better about being naked again in the daylight, and I've been turning my baby doll bathing suit into a bikini to tan my stomach too... ;))

Oh, you girls are fantastic inspiration!


If I wasnt stuck at work right now, this thread would be enough to have me in the gym, and it's been a long time since I have been.

Hey FutureMrs you do that, it helps you to be able to really see the difference and it also inspires others to try too!! I weighed this weekend and weighed 126, sooooo I've totally went beyond the goal of 130!!  I only need to lose one more pound and I'm back to pre-meds weight gain......I lost enough that I did B-Pics and posted them! Thanks girls for inspiring me enough to do it!! <3

it took 6 months to loose 30 lbs  i just started walking everyday and cut my intake and never starved or deprived myself of anything. I'm so happy with the way i look now and want to keep going! Best of luck to everyone!
