    Good for you. That is awesome. Keep up the good work

    Now I'm not trying to dampen your mood. But don't get discouraged if the next 30 pounds takes twice as long as the first. I lost 15 in my first month and the next 15 took me 3 months. The more you lose the slower it comes off. But like I said, don't get discouraged, keep plugging away and it will all eventually come off.

    Congradulations.:drinker:

    Congrats! Please do spill the beans!!! I would love to know how you did it!

    Oh I wont get discouraged at all. I also have a plan that keeps me from plateauing! I know why I lost so much weight at first! I was fat and unhealthy so my body was like heck yea shes movin lol

    Well I would love to help you all this is gonna take a minute though : )

    First off I had a HUGE addiction to food. Every commercial I saw I about died cuz it looked so good.
    The first week was the hardest quitting my old habbits.

    I started by throwing away any tempting foods I had in the house! You have to cut out all the crap until you can have control over what you eat. Once you do then you can start adding the other stuff a little if you really want to. Chances are you wont want to though.

    I then instead of seeing something and saying mmmm that looks sooo good I would tell myself ick that is nasty. You know the placebo effect. It really helped. I convened myself that I only needed food to help me have energy and not be hungry. So I didn't binge anymore. I would just pass it up if I couldn't help it I would come to the forums here and post about it and that made me not wanna binge. I stopped drinking pop at first I would have crystal light instead of pop.

    I used the calorie counter on this site in the beginning. It helped sooo much. Made me realize how much I was eating. I don't need it anymore though I'm trained at what I can eat : )
    When I was eating I would be like you know what I don't need that sauce, hey I don't need the cheese either and cutting things like that out all added up.

    Ok so that's the food and now for the exercise.

    I usually go to the mall every morning with my toddlers before it opens and walk around for some extra exercise. I always do the little things because they add up and make my gym time even better.

    I do weights 2 days cardi 1 day then weights 2 days then cardio and so on.
    I don't stay on one machine. I'll do the elliptical for 30 minutes then something else for another 30. I push myself because I know how freaking good I'm gonna feel when I'm done. Plus I reward myself with the sauna if I workout for at least 1 hour. Some nights after my workout I'll even go for a swim for another 20 30 minutes.

    When I do my weights I'm always doing something new and working different muscles. Burn more calories that way and it makes my body not get used to what I'm doing.

    Ok I could go on and on forever but I wont : )

    YOU ALL CAN DO IT! You just have to stick to it and not giv up!

    Also I LOVE going to the gym now! OHHHH and the number one things that helped me was I NEVER put myself down. If I ate something bad even for a whole day I would say oh well I'll just work hardr at the gym and not do it again tomorrow! I never put it in my mind that I was so bad for not working out or for eating that food and then give up! That's what helped me soooo much was not beating myself up

    Congrats! That's great!
    I also have a tip about something you said. You said you quit drinking pop. I haven't had pop in more than a year and that alone helped me loose weight; I didn't exercise at all. I went from almost 150 to about 135 in a year.
