THANK YOU ALL SOOO MUCH!! You all make this worth it, and watching all your journeys reminds me when I'm falling off the wagon.

Awwww!!! And I've been sick all day and you just made my day :D Hugs!!! I'll tell you what, I did all of this with the right diet, and hardworking workouts. Of course my sleeve helped a great deal! I've never been able to do this and keep doing it without it. For that I am so grateful.

This WILL be you too... just keep with the program. If you ever need anything just let me know!!!

You look fantastic! You've come really far. I know you're a real inspiration to a lot of folks on here. Back when I was researching, I started out on the band site and saw you posting there. I'm glad you made the decision to revise so that you could get to goal! You're definitely doing things "the right way" and you look fabulous.

Thank you!!!

No I haven't had any kind of reconstructive surgery... yet! I am getting breast augmentation and I'm going to get some reshaping done to my knees in September. Eventually I plan to get a total body lift and I might also get my arms done. I don't think my arms look too bad but if I can enhance them, I'd like too. So, I'm waiting a few years for that to see how well they snap back on their own.

The three things I've done that has worked well for me is lower carb eating (I eat about 60g per day... twice as much as the normal 30g but due to my extensive workouts I must!!!) Also my running routines has really worked my legs into submission. I've always had issues with my legs and bottom half being at least one size larger than my top size. I think they are become more parallel!! Finally... :P And I also do some amazing toning workouts called Callanetics. It is an old school style body resistance workouts that really incredibly shape me up. I can't say enough about it. I've also created a thread about it in the Exercise forums. You can find the books and DVD's on Amazon.< /span>

ETA: I made sure I was walking the day after surgery. I started back up very slow, but I've ALWAYS been someone who worked out... even at my heaviest. My advice is just to take baby steps and work your way up. And most importantly find something that you really love to do... :)

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
