Anyone lose 100+ pounds WITHOUT surgery?



  • Kakalina2Kakalina2 Posts: 26Member Member Posts: 26Member Member
    I have, yes. It has been about 14 months now and I have slowed way down on the weight loss. Although my profile seems to be off by a few pounds I show I have lost 112 pounds.

    I was a size 28 ( 3x ) when I started 4-1-12. The jeans I just bought are a size 10. I feel amazing. I changed my lifestyle. No diets here, just a change to good healthy eating.

    Three times a week at the gym. In warm weather swimming the other three days. When I first started at the gym I could barely do anything. Now I start with 30 min. hills on the treadmill, followed by weight and strength training! I also quit smoking in Sept.

    Life is good. We are celebrating our new healthy lifestyle by taking a cruise to Hawaii for the holidays. Yay! I got to by all kinds of cool cruise and formal wear.

    I've lost 98lbs to date, and I've managed to (mostly) keep it off, inspite of becoming disabled in the interveening period. I have been offered surgery lots of times, but I'm determined to do it without! I still need to lose around 100lbs again, but it's heading in the right direction.

    Yes, its very possible to lose over 100lbs without surgery...

    Starting weight was 315lbs and my weight before my skin removal surgery last week was 159lbs (I am 5ft8in)...

    Its not easy, it sucks a lot of the time and old habits die hard.

    But if you want it then you can make it happen with planning and work, I mean real work!

    Some people say it took me too long to lose the weight, since I did it with a lifestyle change, no crash dieting, no crazy pills, wraps or potions (though I do recommend that you find an quality, natural protein shake loaded with vitamins)...

    Hoping that once I recover from surgery the 8lbs of skin that was removed will show and Ill be able to maintain in the low 150's...

    Good Luck!

    Almost there! another 4 lbs to go to reach that milestone! But I have no doubt I'll reach that and many more of my goals! No surgery, and ice cream almost every night :drinker:

    Me! I lost 100 pounds in 9 months and 110 at one year. NO surgery, no starving myself, no fad diets. Just ate less and moved more. Pictures are in my profile.

    Way to go, to all of you in the 100+ club!! To the rest of us, we will get there too. The key for me is eat less and move more.

    268 lbs to 142 lbs. Started simple- more energy out than I put in- move lots. I lost most of the weight the first year but then to maintain a healthy lifestyle I gradually, over the span of about 2 years, transitioned the way I eat. I have grown to love eating healthy, mostly plant based, non processed food with the occasional chocolate chip cookie or reeses peanut butter cup. I feel fabulous. At 47, I feel younger than I did all of my 30's!
