edited August 2021 in Success Stories
I’ve previously lost 50 (ish) pounds on MFP. Fast forward, I gained about 20 back, losing/gaining same 10 for years. In the last 9 weeks I buttoned things down, hit a heavy lifting program again and have been pretty vigilant about tracking. I’ve also granted myself quite a bit of grace. But, even with that, I’ve been able to drop 12 pounds. I’m .6 pound from hitting that 50 pound mark again. I’m hoping to accomplish that by September 1. I’ve got 20 pounds to goal. I’m dialing my weekly loss down from 1 pound/week to .5. Here is my success from the last 9 weeks. Wishing you all health and success.

    I actually have a personal trainer I’ve been working with 3x a week since the beginning of the year. Recently I started going to the gym on my own and lifting as well. I also incorporate 30 minutes of cardio each day either walking on the treadmill or using the rowing machine.

    Sue, I am so proud of you. You have been on my side here since almost day one and I have watched you. You are one of my MFP heroes and I have no doubt that you will achieve your goals here -and in real life. Your determination has always inspired me to do better. In the end, you are one of the reasons that I succeeded. Thank you for that from the bottom of my heart.
    I wept reading this. Although I know I may have initially inspired you…. The tables have turned. Whenever I talk about my weight loss journey, I always talk about you. how amazing you are. How resilient you are. How much you wanted this, and how successful you have been. I also talk about your eloquence in your blog and how I couldn’t be happier for you. You now inspire me. I’m so glad our paths crossed. All my love. -Rachel (aka SisterSue)
    Awww that’s so lovely guys 🥰. If you don’t mind could you both please add me 🙏. I could really do with some help and motivation and you both sound like your great at supporting people 💕
