    So here is my before

    and "during" pictures. Like I've posted before I'm working very hard to lose weight and tone my body. Eating right & exercising is key! The 2nd picture was taken about 2 weeks ago so I'm excited to take an even more updated one and see how I've progressed since then.

    I don't think I'm terribly overweight.

    I'm 5'2 and 115 lb. I just feel I could be thinner, but I end up just starving myself and that's not healthy, or helping my situation.

    17.5 lbs down since January 9th!

    I went from 275.4 to 257.9. I'm obsessed with my numbers (my weight, my steps, and I track all my work outs). I'm not counting calories. I'm just being more heath conscious and not giving into "boredom eating". I feel AMAZING. I'm glad I got the motivation to do this while I'm...

    So today I went shopping

    and there was that top I absolutely wanted. Sadly there wasn't my size. I hate when that happens, it's so frustrating ; when you leave the shop, also leaving a part of you there, with empty hands, it's completely heartbreaking. But there was the size under mine and since i've...

    Update on my weight loss: I've

    now lost 54lbs. I feel better than I ever have. I look better and better every day. Being healthy has become an addiction. I just wish I had someone to workout with.

    What Is Going On!

    Wanting to loose weight isn't enough motivation

    there's need to be something more that drives you and keeps you going single time every time you're ready to give up. Just remember, don't stop when your tired, stop when your done.

    I was so proud of myself today.

    I have lost 35 pounds and today was the first time I actually felt good looking in the mirror. Then the person who I considered my best friend looked at me and said "well you still weigh way too much for someone your height" and there went my happiness :(

    5 years ago I weighed almost 150KG

    and had a gastric bypass done. I now weigh 99KG. For an ideal BMI I should get it down to 86KG. In a week I turn 29 years old. I'm making a promise to myself today: I will reach that 86KG goal before I turn 30.
