What 145 pounds lost looks like on me (Pictures)

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

I started this journey at 320 pounds. This is what I looked like "before"...



This is me with me niece after losing 50 or 60 pounds...




And at 12o pounds gone...



And this is me with my niece at 145 pounds gone...



I have about 15 pounds to go to get to my goal weight, but I feel SOOOO much better where I am now than at 320 pounds. I still have some issues to deal with, but everything is a little easier now that I am not carrying that excess weight with me wherever I go! More exercise, less food works for me. Not that I starve myself (far from it), but I follow the rule of "calories in, calories out" I burn more calories than I eat on a regular basis and the weight comes off. It can be done!

    Way to go! It seems like a deceptively simple formula to lose weight, yet it is so much more effective than the gimmicks and shortcuts out there!

Thanks for sharing and being an inspiration for others!
