1/2 way there... hopefully w/ pics

So i finally decided i was tired of being large.... actually, extra-large....actually, i was starting to grow out of extra-large and i decided i wasn't going any further. I dug in my heels and decided to go back. See, before i got married i really intended to lose about 10lbs. But, i didn't. Then i got pregnant... i ended up gaining 10lbs after my son was born. Then, i got pregnant again. Added about 10 more after my daughter. Then, i think i just gave up and spent more time paying attention to everyone else and not me. Added 15 more.... Then there was that last 1lb that put me over the edge. So, i decided to try MFP, and i joined a group of online friends that were doing the 30day shred. I did all 30 days. I started jogging with C25K. I was actually doing this and the scale keeps dropping. I am still amazed every day how "easy" this is... But i am not done... only about 1/2 way there. I am back to pre-daughter weight and will be considered in the "normal" range of BMI very soon.... I am just so happy this is working. I look at the success stories posted here just about every day when i need a good kick in the pants to exercise... you've been very motivating! So here's mine :) ...if i can do this right!

    Well done - you are doing great and looking fantastic! I could have written some of your story - especially the part about looking after everyone else but yourself! So easy to do when you have a family. Keep up the good work and hope you get to your goal some time soon x

    WTG...You look GREAT...keep up the good work..I wish it wasn't so HOT outside, I'd try doing the C25K...but it's way too hot...not a big morning person...and really not motivated in the evenings by the time it decides to cool down...but may try this come the fall (Sept 2011)
