5'3, 182 to 154

I have been struggling lately...Feeling defeated because this has been such a slow journey for me. I never realized how much weight i had gained. I always thought i was "average"....Looking back, Im just glad that i got on the road to getting healthy. I Started at 182 after 2 kids, im down to 154, but ive seen 148. My goal is to get to 140 and re-evaluate. I want to be around a size 6-8 so we will see when I get there. At this rate, I lose about 1lb per month. I have pcos, I work full time, Im married, I have a 2 & 4 yr old daughter. Ive done a lot of lifting heavy, some distance running and some sprints, some at home dvds (I love TURBOFIRE)....and everything in between.

175 in the before and 155 in the after.

    You've done great! Nothing wrong with slow and steady - it's taken me over two years to lose 40 pounds!

    You look great! I am on a slow journey down too. I started at 215 and am at 185 almost 2 yrs later. I sure hope slow and steady keeps it off for good!

    Can I ask what your calorie intake is?
