I am Niki. I am 43 years old. After taking anti-depressant and anti-anxiety medications, I was left at 189 pounds, 42% body fat, and struggling to fit into a size 16-18. Being small framed and 5ft 2 carrying around 89 pounds was like carrying an extra person. In one year I lost 89 pounds, got my body fat to 16%, lost over 70 inches,and wear a size 2-4. I achieved my results by calorie counting, 7 day a week 2 hour work out sessions including 1 hour cardio and 1 hour strength training sessions. I drank 12 glasses of water a day. I followed my calorie plan six days a week and allowed myself to eat whatever I wanted on Sundays. After getting to 102 lbs, I was a bit under weight. I decided to work really hard and put on about 8 pounds of muscle. I feel stronger, leaner, and healthier at 110 pounds. I maintain my weight by working out 6 days a week 2 hours a day. I do 1 hour full body strength training and 1 hour of cardio . I split and rotate the cardio to include the eliptical, bike, incline treadmill, and boxing. I also love to hike and walk my dogs. I take one full rest day a week to let my body relax. I maintain my weight by eating 1300 -1600 calories a day. I still eat whatever I want on Sundays. I do not drink alcohol or caffeine, and I enjoy a vegetarian lifestyle. I am a homemaker, I keep moving all day. I dance while dusting, jog in place while folding laundry . I challenge myself to get 15k-25k steps per day. I love animals, my husband and I have 5 rescue cats ( 4 siamese 1 korat) and 2 dogs a dachshund and a Queensland heeler. I also care for a feral cat colony. Current Weight 110 Starting Weight 189.

    Hi there! emoticon
    Congratulations on your incredible determination and weight loss! I was really impressed by all the cardio and weights you did daily. Appreciated your blog showing the weekly stats and could see how staying at a certain caloric range and upping the exercise made a difference in your weight loss, so thanks for posting that.
    I am getting back on track after regaining all of my weight and have been looking for blogs to motivate me and your story really does that! emoticon
    Have added you as a spark friend if that is ok... emoticon
