Tried to make it short..but…sorry ahead of time 

Started at 272-now 226-230.
Tomorrow 11th Month.
Started sick and immobile. Now alive and mobile!
You may have seen me post before as I have been posting every month. It keeps me accountable.
• What I learned..Scale sucks! Ive lost over 26 inches from my body yet in last 5 months scale is non-moving.
• Have a support circle. It makes all the difference. Find workout buddies, MFP, Family etc. Cut out the negative carbs(people) in your circle. If they don’t benefit you then move on.
• Balance of eating and movement is the key.
• Health trumps physical attributes any day. I can kick most of my “skinny” friend’s *kitten* in working out.
• The process is slow, and that is ok. You will fall, just dust it off , and get back to it.
• Consistency is also the key.
• I cannot compare my body at 230 lbs to anyone elses because I’m now wearing clothes I fit into at 205.
• Take pictures, all the time. Look back often to compare todays you to the old you.
• Enjoy the rollercoaster ride! 
So without further ado, here are some pics. Thank you MFP people..you are/were my rock to this journey!!!

Last but not least..For visual effect I took the amount of weight Ive lost and held it in my arms. Wow, what a powerful moment for me. I will use this when I get down about the scales non-movement.

    WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WAY TO GO! YOU LOOK GREAT!


    When I first started (for the third time lol) I remember one of my friends saying to me after I was down in the dumps for only losing 5 lbs in a couple of months. She said take a bag of flour and hold it in your hand and then tell me5 lbs isn't a lot? And she was right, the visual makes a world of difference!
