    Thank you! You've done an AWESOME job.

    I saw a weird weight gain today (3 pounds) despite consistent clean eating and 2-hour workouts every day. Maybe it's depression, insomnia or muscle from strength training, but I've been down on myself today. The scale is just SLOW to budge right now.

    I need to lose 50-60 pounds, and seeing your results and that smile lift me up and make me ready for a quick workout and a new outlook. Thank YOU!

    Thank you all for the sweet comments. For those asking, I am 6'0". My sagging skin has been an issue particularly on my arms, glutes and abs. I am combating the skin issue by lifting heavy and a skin cream I bought that Nivea makes. I use it twice a day when I wake up and at bed and have noticed it firming up my skin. Also, the building of muscle helps fill in some of the area and give the skin something to cling to. Everyone I've talked to about significant weight loss says it takes about two years of maintaining your final weight for your skin to completely bounce back. So just like the loss, we have to be patient. It didn't stretch out overnight and it won't bounce back overnight. Also, hydration really helps your skins elasticity. So drink lots of water and use a hydrating lotion.

    i started in October 2014 at 250 lbs and over 40% body fat. It's now July and I'm at 177 and 26% body fat. 17 lbs from my final goal. I'm averaging 1.9 lbs which always seemed slow but this is so much easier than trendy crash diets. The loss is definitely more difficult now, but my drive is greater and I love working out, weight lifting, etc. good luck everyone on your journey!

    U look great!! So motivating to hear everyone's stories!!

    You look great! Way to go!

    Of course you can do it! I've failed by giving up so many times! It wasn't until I determined that no matter how many off days I had, I could still continue, and got back on track, that I found my own success! If I can you can!
