Lori's story: come a long way, but a long way to go!

I started to chub up when I was around 4 years old and have fought a mostly losing battle with my weight ever since.   While I won't give out specific numbers (yet; I will once I reach my goal) I do have a considerable amount of weight to lose.   At times it is VERY daunting but this time, 2 years away from a milestone birthday and a trip to Italy (a lifelong dream!) dangling like a carrot on a stick before me, I WILL NOT GIVE UP!!!


Almost four months ago I joined a gym and almost three months ago I started working with a personal trainer 1x/week.   I love it!  Since doing so I have lost around 18lbs. and have decreased my body fat percentage by 1.4%.   I am almost down 2 sizes so far and am able to wear a pair of jeans that I have not fit into for over 8 years!


I am very pleased with my progress but I still have a LONG way to go.  So I am very much looking forward to sharing this journey with all of you -- let's do it!!! :)

Go Lori Go Lori!  :) 


My success story is that I lost about 20 lbs in 2007 and have kept it off (for the most part--it comes and goes)  :)  I'd still love to lose 5 more (or so) and think this group will be really inspirational!

In the last 10 months I've lost about 25lbs.. I had the help of some diet pills given by dr's but the results are amazing.. and many people in my family have started taking them.. They just give me the extra push I need. and i can't wait to see what results I get now that I've begun working out.  Congrats Lorienne
