    You look great! I'm 4"10 so it's nice seeing other succes stories from shorter women.

    I love that you've mentioned a relapse, I'm in the same position at the moment and lots of success stories seem very linear. Gives me hope :)

    CONGRATULATIONS to you. You look amazing.....Great job sticking to the plan. Hoping I can get back in the swing of things after New years eve......Have had some health issues with my knees and has put me behind with my Zumba
    class. Any suggestions are sure welcome....What do you do about snacks....? Keep up your maintenance now and stay strong. God bless.

    My best advice on food is just planning really. If you usually get hungry around 4pm, plan ahead and have a snack ready. For me, it's usually a green smoothie with baby spinach, baby kale, apple juice, frozen pineapple, banana, greek yogurt, and matcha powder. I get my sweet tooth fix along with protein and tons of other good stuff.

    There's hope for us all girl!!

    My relapse happened after I moved to a new city for work. I had a set routine that was working, and then everything got turned upside down. The stress of moving, getting up to speed at a my job, and not having my friends around led to a return of bad eating habits, too much drinking, and not enough exercise. I had thrown away all of my bigger clothes, so when I gained back I had to go out and buy more, which really stung. That's when I decided that what I once did I could certainly do again. So I did. :)

    Fantastic work, your results speak for your dedication! It took a lot of grit and you stuck with it for 5 years. It is important that you included that fact, it didn't happen rapidly but you continued on, good for you!
