330 VS 285 Pounds, what it looks like


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, April 06, 2010

So, here it goes, one more time... so scary to look at but what a great reminder of what I never want to look like again



Yep, that was me, just a little over 3 month's ago. 330 Pounds and miserable, I could barely breath, could not bend over with out feeling like I was being cut in half and was unable to paint my own toenails.

Now just 3 months later


I weigh 285 pounds! WOW, not only have I lost 45 pounds but I have lost 26.5 inches! OH MY GOSH! It has finally hit me. I have lost 45 pounds in just 3 months. I know it will not continue to just melt away, especially since things have been so crazy of late, but the other night I was laying in bed and began to calculate it, I really can hit my goal weight of 135 by next summer. Yes, I still have 150 pounds to lose but if I continue to work hard, it can happen. There are 15 months until July 2011 and if I lose just 10 pounds a month, it can seriously happen. When I realized it, I had this grin from ear to ear, I jumped up and down on my bed, I felt like the kid at a candy store or finding my favorite toy in the world under the Christmas tree, it was just amazing. I am a strong woman and I CAN do this! Literally, I am extactic! Writing about it, makes me feel it all over again, I can't stop smiling! Just knowing that I can actually lose the weight and hit my goal, I don't have to imagine it, wish it, hope it, dream it, this time I am doing it!

Here's a little piece of motivation to help keep the fire burning



This is my virtual model at 135 pounds! Pretty cute, huh? So, I know at 135 pounds, I won't look exactly like this but trust me, it sure is fun playing dress up and a visual helps! For anyone who would like to try this, just check out at www.mvm.com

What is even better than playing dress up with my virtual model? Knowing I will reach my goal once and for all!

    We must keep in touch better, as we both have the same goal and weigh nearly the same AND started at nearly the same time! I am just hitting the three-month mark. I started out at 408 lbs and I am down to 350lbs (tomorrow is weigh in day, so that number will be less soon). My goal is to weigh 155 by June of 2011. My reward is a cruise to the Caribbean!

I am excited for you. I have certainly felt that overwhelming joy when it dawns on me that i CAN do this!

Good luck and keep moving:)

    What great changes that you can see and as more weight comes off you will even feel better. One food for thought though.... Even with hard work and determination you may at some plateau and you might not lose weight but you will lose inches. Muscle weighs more then fat so don't be discouraged if this happens. As well you might find your BMI is where it should be at a higher weight! Again this is just food for thought.

Good luck and look forward to seeing more changes with you!
