    You should be proud! We seem to have a similar journey with the same body type (5'4 and curvy). I was also at 200 lbs, now I'm at 170, but wasn't sure if getting below 150 was realistic--you've re-inspired me! Keep up the great work!

    You should be proud! I'm also 5'4" and currently at 186 with a goal of 145-150. I find it interesting that two people the same height and weight can look so different. I wasn't nearly as cute as you at 200. ;)

    Thank you all for your kind words! You're all so sweet! <3 For anyone wondering the details, i tried my best to summarize below :smile:


    My before picture was taken December 2018, right before I started MFP again. After having 2 babies, I decided it was time to get back into shape. So my official start was Janurary 2019. I didnt lose all the weight at once. I've had "breaks" for weeks or months :s , which lead to a couple regains. Nothing more than 10 lbs though. I've managed to stay pretty consistent overall. The first 40lbs took me about 5 months to lose. At that point, I took a break & gained close to 10 lbs back over a couple months. Started up again around 170lbs and lost another 20 lbs in about 3 months. Since December 2019, I've been hovering the the 140s comfortably. But still trying to reach 140, my GW!! The Covid stress got to me over Spring & halted my motivation for a bit, but I'm back on the wagon.

    Overall, I just watch what I eat. I try to avoid empty carbs. Eat smaller, more frequent meals. Mainly stick to meat & veggie meal plans. I rarely "workout". I walk 30 mins a day, 5 days a week. I'm on my feet alot at work, as well as at home, thanks to my littles 😂 So yeah.... that's basically it!

    This is perfect for me to see. 2 kids tons of weight gained and lost. Quarantine hit hard. In the exact same boat re: taking breaks here and there. Now I too am back on it too. I'm at the beginning mark maybe 4 weeks in and 7lbs down. I don't think I'll reach my goal until next year which was a little bit of a hard realization to take in but I need to do this! THANK YOU for sharing! Very motivating. Good work! :smile:
