Ok, so 76.8#, but WOO HOO! I started this journey at 218# ( a size 18W jeans and a 1X top) in March of this year. I was borderline diabetic, high blood pressure, high cholesterol (the bad kind), and generally unhappy with what I saw when I looked at me. DON'T GET ME WRONG.... I KNOW THAT GOD MADE ME AND HE DOESNT MAKE JUNK! lol But you can have a gorgeous house and fill it with clutter until it is unfit for human occupancy (ever watch HOARDERS?)! HELLO!!!!! ANywho... My Dad is a diabetic, my sister, diabetic. She was on dialysis 3 times a week until she passed away about 10 weeks after I began this journey (June 4th, 2012). She had renal failure due to her diabetes being so overwhelming on her kidneys. The day she died, a friend of mine actually tried to offer me dairy queen as comfort food and advised that I could "take a break" from my weight loss goals that night. HA! I kicked in to FULL THROTTLE and haven't looked back!

I run 10 miles on the weekends now and burn through about 1000 cals a day in physical activity (not BMR). I pretty much have been following The Biggest Loser diet... eating LOTS of fresh fruits and veggies. I avoid processed foods 90% of the time. I carry a little cooler bag with me when I am out running errands, so I am never without water or a healthy snack! This keeps me from wanting to eat at a fast food chain. glasses
And I PRAY... A LOT! Seriously, folks... I love Jesus. He loves me. Yeah... I'm a Jesus Freak. I can do ALL things through Him who gives me strength... some may think that is a silly phrase.. but lemme tell ya, you try turning away from the popcorn and nachos or soft pretzels at the movie theater when your hubby and teenager are loaded down with goodies.. and you tell me that isn't DIVINELY INSPIRED self control! Amen! flowerforyou

Anywho... I plan to keep on running and I also am meeting with a nutritionist to teach me how to maintain this new weight that I hope to be at VERY SOON. I am only 6# away from my goal as I write this. WHEW! As of now, I am 141.2#, and for the first time in my adult life I am wearing a size 6 jeans! WOO HOO! not just in ONE pair, either! lol I wear a M top now, too! I love that I don't have to worry about what will fit when I take it out of the closet! I have never felt better, healthier, and stronger. heart

God Be with all of you on your journeys! Be strong, be courageous! Do not lose heart! It can happen! It WILL happen! You make healthy choices, use self control, and apply determination... you will be AMAZED at the results you will see. Oh, and have grace with yourself. If you stumble... get right back up and keep on truckin! happy

Sis... all you need is FLOOR. I have never to this day set a single TOE inside a gym. YOU CAN DO THIS. did I mention that on March 1 of 2011 I had my pelvis and back broken? lol YOU CAN DO THIS. Make a list of all the reasons YOU HAVE TO DO THIS. Then make a plan to get it done. Now Go GET EM!

Thank you for sharing. You are an amazing inspiration! My mother suffered from high blood pressure and diabetes and I lost her 3 years ago. While I don't have either, both run in my family and I am approx 60 lbs over my ideal weight. I figure if I don't lose the weight, its just a matter of time.... and reading stories like yours will keep me motivated. I wish you the best in your journey!
