    Hi Pals!

    So I have decided to take monthly update photos to keep myself encouraged and on track - In the last 5 weeks I have lost 30lbs and 4% bf. Although I still have another 100lbs to lose, I am feeling like this is actually possible.

    My diary is open to friends in case anyone is wondering what I have eaten and how I workout. 60+ gone so far!!!


    Oh god.. its awsome.. u r a magic

    Wow. I had not checked this thread in awhile and to see not just everyone's kind words of encouragement but to see that I am actually giving people hope and strength to keep motivated brought me to tears.

    I remember day 1 of this journey. I was over 300lbs and I looked at myself nude in the mirror for the first time in years. I was devastated. In the span of a year I lost two grandparents, an aunt and my dog. All to cancer. I stopped caring about doing anything but trying to survive another day. My life had fallen all the way apart. I gained well over 100lbs.

    I was ALWAYS the cute chubby girl. I have battled weight and binge eating since I was very young. After crying on the bathroom floor that day, I picked myself back up and I decided to take my life back. I looked at my small children and decided to live for them now. I needed to be healthy. They needed their mother. My husband has been the most supportive person I could have asked for. Every time I stumbled he picked me back up.

    My kids hide motivational notes in the house every so often and this morning on my bathroom mirror there was a note from my 8 year old daughter. It said - "You are worth it. I believe in you".

    I went to the gym and killed it. Hit a new personal record in the vertical leg press of 405 for two sets of 10.

    So again, I thank you all for your kind words and continued support and I'm so happy to be able to inspire so many of you.

    Honestly, it's all diet and gym. I prep all of my meals and snacks for the day the night before or first thing in the morning so that there's no reason to slip up. I go to the gym 6 days a week. I lift heavy 5 days then 4 to 5 days of cardio and 1 day where I swim until my body gives out. Usually an hour or so. Haha

    And for those who wish to see my video -
    Watch "Vertical Leg Press - 405lbs" on YouTube - Vertical Leg Press - 405lbs: https://youtu.be/Wh07K92o3dY :D

    I wrap my knees to avoid injury because I'm lifting so heavy.

    Wonderful! I just hope I can finally keep myself going. It is hard for me to eat fewer calories without feeling deprived and without being hungry...

    Finally got around to taking a week 8 comparison photo so here it is! I don't weigh in until Tuesday so I am not sure of my loss this week but at the minimum I know I'm down just over 50lbs.
