    Awesome! How many calories a day and how much did you workout? I'm looking to follow your example!
    When I first started, I was at 1200 calories. Now I average about 1400-1500. I workout 6 days a week. My first goal was to burn 500 a week, now I aim to burn at least 1,000 a week. I mostly do resistance and circuit training.

    Gosh, Thank you!! No I don't eat them back. I sometimes do eat some back on those occasions when out with friends or what not. Normally I just try to stick to my 1400.

    Awesome job!!! It's funny (well not really, but you know what I mean) what we do to our bodies when we get stressed and/or depressed on top of what our body already goes through when we are stressed/depressed. I am sort of going through the same thing right now. I'm glad you posted this...it has inspired me!

    I'm so glad I could inspire you!! I hope that things get better for you. For me, it was kind of like taking off a band aid...I just ripped it off...that means I actually got rid of some stressful people in my life (well, not really got RID of..but you know what I mean. :laugh: ) I all of a sudden knew what I had to do to be happier. Good luck to you!

    Way to go! (And that retro polka dot dress is fab. I'd totally have that taken in to wear it again if I were you.)
