    Awesome!
    I hope all those who feel frustrated of not being able to start big will read your post and understand that starting small and taking it one day at a time is the way to go! Pushing the limits, sure, but within limits :).

    Congratulations on your weight loss. You look much much happier and stronger too. I'd like to add you to my friend list, if you don't mind? I really need some inspiration. I really need some consistancy in my training, as well. Thanks for sharing your success story!

    Let's see. A year ago this week I had a debilitating spinal cord injury due to a herniated disc. I had emergency surgery and was in a rehab hospital for almost a month because I was paralyzed from the waist down. It's a miracle I regained sensation as much as I have. The neurosurgeon said the best way to prevent this from happening again is to lose weight and strengthen my core. So I took him VERY seriously.

    The first day I walked a quarter mile around my neighborhood, with a CANE! I just kept at it, every single day. Walking longer, farther, faster, adding in jogging after a few months, then walking with running, and now full on running.

    The key for me has been consistency.

    Very inspirational!!! You look amazing! :flowerforyou:

    You look so firm and fit! Congratulations, first of all. Second, have you had any issues with excess skin? I have lost 165 pounds and I am starting to get discouraged cause I have a belly that wont go away. I am not sure at this point if it is still fat or if its skin. I am trying to hard not to have to do surgery (cause im terrified and its expensive). i would love to do this naturally. Was this every an issue for you? I can't imagine it has been with such a tiny frame, but just asking...

    Before, this was 270-something lbs. The second shot is from today at the gym. 174.8!!

    I'm 5'8". I'm 31 years old and Mom of three kids, ages 6, 3, and 1.

    Current routine: I run 6-7 days/week, and lift weights 2-3x/week. Eat less crap, drink more water.

    Current goal: 145-160lbs, resting at whichever number I feel strong, faster, and healthy. To be determined when I get there. :-)

    I've gotten like 10 messages asking how I did it or how I got started. Here you go...
