Me, too..! Took a little longer - an extra four months, due to medications - but it is indeed a joy to look back at the progress, and ahead, and a new lifestyle.
Good on us all!

Congratulations! I am so proud of you for all of that hard work. You are an inspiration for the rest of us who are right behind you a mile or so... How did you go from sporadic exercising to daily exercising? That is my biggest problem...I've reduced calories okay but I just do not want or am motivated to exercise and can find any legitimate reason not to indoors or out.

I have been having trouble lately...simply have to keep our eyes on the fact that our quality of life is so much better with good health...and that means what we put in our mouths and if we exercise regularly or not.

Woohoo! Thank you for your support! I am pleased to provide an update: since the 17th of September, I have lost another 5 pounds and run a 5K in a personal-record-shattering 32:00!
I am also pleased to report another success since the first post. I am completely 100% OK with my body now. Yeah, I want to lose another 2 pants sizes and 20 lbs., but I know how to do it correctly and safely - and it's all about LOVING the body I have NOW. Because I know what my body can do and how much better it runs when treated well, I am much happier than so many people who are angry with their bodies. I am so much happier and healthier than when I was thinner several years ago.
The number on the scale really doesn't matter if you aren't happy in your heart. Well folks, I am happy in my heart, and I can't wait to be both happy in my heart and healthy on the scale (only 16 lbs away now)!

Since July 4 (Independence Day...from unhealth!) I have
- lost 15 lbs
- lost 2 whole pants sizes
- gone from 3 mile run time of about 45 minutes, to 34:33
- lost my taste for simple carbs and no longer add sugar to tea, eat pastries, etc. (but a cheeseburger will always be delicious!)
- gone from sporadic exercise to consistent exercise every day
- gone from no fitness classes to three a week
- brought my RHR from around 70 to below 60
- have an honest assessment of my body and fitness level, from whence I've come and what I have to do to get where I want to
I now feel more than prepared for the next 25 pounds, and a lifetime of maintenance!
