Down 150 lbs in 18 months!

So, I hit the big -150 lbs last week. Thought I would share a few pics for anyone needing inspiration. Been on this journey 18 months so far. No pills, no surgeries, no diets! Just lifestyle changes. Cut out sodas first, started tracking calories/macros with MFP and incorporated cardio and lifting 3-4 times a week. Started running in July 2015 and can now run 5k's with ease and have advanced to 6-7 days a week in the gym. Never thought I would be someone who would struggle with taking a rest day! This is how I know I have truly changed my lifestyle. Still have about 40-50 lbs to go to get to my goal weight. Just too much weight for my 5'4'' frame. But I will get there this year. Hope this helps someone! Never give up. If I can do it, anyone can do it! #ilostafreakingperson #butgainedsomuchmore

Feel free to add me. My diary is open to friends. :)

    Congrats!!!! You've done amazing! I totally get the rest day thing and knowing you've changed your lifestyle. I started maybe 3 1/2 yrs ago. Hated working out. Now if I miss a day there's a lot of grumbling going on in my head. It's amazing what you can condition yourself to do. Keep up the great work! You look beautiful!!

    Amazing!!! You look terrific! I have been doing this for about 8 months and have only lost 10 lbs. Your post is very inspiring to me and makes me realize that if I got really serious about this I could lose the weight too. Thanks for inspiring me!

    Truly amazing, thanks for the inspiration, you look wonderful.

    I decided from yesterday to get my butt back in gear, same height as you 5.4.
    Set myself a challenge to exercise for 100 days without stopping, I am on Day 2, but its kicking my butt. Today whilst exercising I was so hungry that I wanted to stop, the old me would have stopped, but the new me, decided to carry on to the end. I am really glad that I had.
    I do realize that it will not be easy, but I am so tired of being over weight and not seeing this double chin, big stomach etc in the mirror looking back at me. Once the weather warms up I plan on starting C25K and looking forward to it.
    May plan is to take one day at a time towards my 100 day challenge which ends in July.
