    I'm 5'4, my starting weight was 250, I am currently 150. My starting shirt size was 2x now I am size small, pant size 18 now I am size 6! The key to my weight loss was eating normally but in portions, no starving, no overworking myself, I did not cut out junk food. I allow myself to enjoy food still but in a responsible way. I started by replacing & reducing my fast food with healthier choices. Example: serving of chips instead of fries, dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate, etc... There was a time in my life that I cut everything out & I could never lose weight. I found the technique I used most effective since I eat normal & im able to maintain weight! Any questions ask!!!!

    Congrats on your weight loss, that is amazing! It's interesting that I happened to read your post because right now I am struggling with the new weight watchers smartpoints program. I was doing great before but now it has turned into a pretty restrictive lower sugar high protein diet. I am encouraged that you seem to still eat what you want but within your calorie range and still lose the weight. I get so "down" thinking of my WW program knowing it is only allowing me to have certain foods for the most part. So you really lost weight still eating pasta, etc? You did it all with MFP?

    I honestly don't believe in WW just bc I don't think the weight loss is maintainable! Of course there are ppl who can keep it off but a lot can't. Yes I eat pizza, lasagna, pasta, all that stuff but in moderation! Moderation is key. I watch what I eat but in a realistic way! I eat my fruits & veggies& lean meats but I also enjoy myself :)

    Finally someone who does not see this as a diet but a lifestyle. I am also using some the same techniques with food. I log what I would normally eat in a meal then figure out what can I swap out or maybe have to reorganize with another meal. I have food allergies and eating gluten free can have a lot of carbs but if you do it right, you can still eat gluten free bread and treats. Just make sure you add veggies, fruit and keep exercising. My favorite treat is 1/2 of small bar of dark chocolate with a tablespoon of peanut butter. Very satisfying. Thank you for posting and being such an inspiration. I feel more confident now that I am doing things my way! B)

    Yup there is absolutely no reason to treat weight loss as a punishment! You have to be able to eat the way you eat while you lose weight, the rest of your life!!! No sense in stuffing your face with nothing but salad if you can't do it for 60 more years! Lol

    You look great! Definitely some good motivation here! I"m stating over, again. But, I figure that as long as I never give up for good, I'm on an OK path. I'm definitely trying to make sure that I set my goals as a lifestyle change, and not a diet.
