Wow, amazing job! Your a new person! Having toddlers around to chase is a big help lol. I couldn't figure out why I was staying so hungry all the time with only burning 500 calories a day till I put my HRM on while chasing my daughter around. Extra calories burned doing that!

I'm closing in on my 100 lbs lost (I'm at 87.6 right now). I started late December 2011 and have done it all with better eating and exercise.

Not quite, but getting close! No surgery, just smart eating and lifting heavy stuff. You can do it!

I actually had a Gastric Bypass 16 years ago. I lost around 125 lbs, but gained most of it back from eating horribly and never exercising. A year and 1/2 ago I decided to do something about being back over 300 again. This time with eating right and exercising I'm down 94 lbs and I know it's off forever! Wish I did it this way the first time!

I'm not at 100lbs yet, but I'm closing in on it. It's taken me 13 months so far, and I venture to say it will probably take me 24 before all is said and done.

It's fantastic to see all the success here! I've still got over 100 to go, but the attitude and lifestyle change has me feeling like a new person already. Everyone here is an inspiration. Thanks for sharing!

As long as your eating healthy and moving thats all that matters. Slower the better is the way I see it. Some people can lose it really fast and others slow. I'm the slow one. I've lost 41lbs in 9months. Had a few bad months due to family deaths but I picked myself back up.

Did mine 100% without Surgery. And was able to completely tone up and banish any loose skin. My starting weight was 252 lbs and I am currently 127. You can totally do without Surgery. Healthy eating, portion control, moderation and exercise was what worked for me!
