  • I just stated back at WW for the ninth time after having my second daughter. I couldn't beleive it when the scale read 294 lbs. I had never been that big before. I had lost 40 lbs and seemed to be on the right track again. I had lost and gained 100 lbs twice before, once in my 20's and again in my 30's. I got on the scale…
  • I had a 360 lift after losing 110 lbs. I don't think the recovery was much worse than a c-section. Sweeping lasted a few months and if felt like I had a really tight rubber band around my waist. I was back to the gym limited after 6 weeks and pretty much full activity at 10 weeks. No Regrets!
  • I lost 100 lbs six years ago. After maintaining for 3 years I realized that the skin on my stomach was never going to get better. I opted for surgery. It was the best decision I ever made. I am not going to lie, it was expensive but I opted for a new body over a new car. I still drive a 2000 Jeep but I look damn good in…
  • I was running really late for work this morning and having bit of a clothes fit. (Casual Fridays drive me crazy, I can never figure out what is appropriate.) Finally, I had to go so I grabbed the first pair of black jeans I could find. I threw them on and thought to myself these feel a little big. It wasn't until later in…
  • I smashed my scale and threw it out over 6 years ago. I am so much happier not being controlled by that damned thing. I use the clothes in my closet as a guide. I can tell when I have lost or gained a few. Every couple of months I will get on the scale at the gym and I am always mad at the result whether it is up or down.…
  • Invest in a Miraclesuit. They are not cheap but they are made incredibly well and have cuts that can hide and redefine most body parts.
  • Although I am more of a crunchy, salty myself, I have to admit that when the time of the month comes there is nothing like a double stuffed Oreo dunked in vanilla frosting! Did I Just Say That Outloud?
  • That is takes a while to realize I am not always the biggest girl in the room. I will still pick out people and ask my husband, "am I the same size as her?"...he laughs and tells me I am delusional. I have no perception of my real size.
  • I had my surgery 5 years after losing 100 lbs. I was happy at my weight. I knew I was able to maintain and I was done having kids. I was equally unhappy with my body after losing the weight as I was before. I made the best choice for me. It was expensive but I made the decision to spend the money on my body instead of…
  • Before 274 After. 174 Not great poses but I think you get the difference. Btw...I am 6 years older in the after picture.

  • I have gained and lost 100 lbs 3 times. This last time I have kept it off for over 6 years. For many years, I was an all or nothing "Dieter". I could gain weight and I could lose it but I could never maintain a weight. The first thing I had to get over was that I did not have to be perfect. The last time I approached it…
  • I lost 100 lbs and have kept it off for 6 years. I am finally ready to push ahead and lose that last size. I try not to weigh myself and go by the sizes in my closet. The scale was an achilles heal for me so it was one of the things I gave up using. I would be quite satisfied if I can just continue to to maintain. I have…
