Congratulations and thank you. I've been having some difficult times recently but your post showed me what I have to be grateful for - SparkPeople and the caring community that celebrates victory together and eases the pain of defeat, and a car that's in my possession even if the window was broken out by vandals.

Way to go! There are very few people who can say they have successful lost so much weight. You are an inspiration.

Major CONGRATS! Wonderful story! I do hope you keep walking to local errands when/if you get another car. I parked mine 2 years ago for local purposes & only use it for out of town trips. That has let me maintain my weight loss while I'm still struggling with portion control, plus is reshaping my body, helping tighten all those saggy-baggy spots from tmy earlier 90 lb. weight loss. I want to lose another sixty & thank God for being able to walk freely now. Keep up the good work, & enjoy even skinnier jeans! God Bless!

Woohoo - sorry to hear about your car, but great job not letting this get you down and turning it into a positive for your health and mental attitude!

All the research we've seen also says that consistent fitness is the best way to keep the weight off too, so you are on the right track.

SparkCheers!

I stopped counting numbers a few months back when I was within 5lbs and started focusing on and enjoying being healthy and active. Plus to give my body and skin time to adjust to this new weight.

But my car got stolen and out of necessity I started walking A LOT more, on errands within a couple miles and then some miles between bus routes to make the shortest trips. I was eating a lot more and feeling hungry a lot, so out of concern I finally bought a scale. (up till now only at Dr. or Nutritionist appt or at gym-- but w/o car, haven't been able to access any of those for 2 months). Surprise, surprise, not only did I hit my goal, I went below it AND am now at the weight I was when I was 21 and really active. :) Woot! I almost didn't believe it at first, thought, oh god, this inexpensive analog scale MUST be off...but then realized my 'tight' slim jeans hadn't been tight for weeks and my good fitting, nice-butt jeans were really hanging around my hips and sagging in the derriere. Whoa!

It's TRUE. I went right past my goal and never noticed...was too busy trucking along those sidewalks and trails, munching my veggies and fruit snacks every few hours and having a grand old time knowing how lucky I was they took my car now, verses 1-2 years ago when I would have really been trapped and housebound. Now, NOTHING keeps me still...cause I can walk everywhere ! :)

That's what being at a healthy weight and fitness level can do for you...it makes you FREE!
