lettygaylor's Journal, 26 January 2015

About 13 years ago I my weight was at an all time high of 200 pounds. So I decided to try to go to Weigh of Life...remember that program. I took the pills and followed the diet plan. I lost 20 pounds in 2 months. But that was all I could do. I don't like taking pills and the diet plan was crazy. No eating after 2 pm. What kind of crap is that? So I stopped going. And over the past 13 years I gained back those 20 that I lost plus about 40 more. Then 7 years ago I decided to try the starvation diet. And Sweating to the Oldies...I still love to do Sweating to the Oldies it's fun. And I lost about 30 pounds. But starving myself was not the answer. And I gained back those 30 pound in no time and put on an extra 70. Last February I weighed in at 280 pounds! That was the highest I had ever weighed. And I finally decided it was time to make a change. I changed my lifestyle. Trying to eat as healthy as possible. Exercising regularly. After a few months the weight started coming off. I set goals for myself:
Get under 200 pounds by Feb. 2015
Lose 100 pounds by July 2015
Reach my goal weight of 150 by Feb. 2017 which is my 40th birthday.

I accomplished my first goal on Dec 1st 2014, two months ahead of schedule.
I accomplished my second goal today! 6 months ahead of schedule!
And I can't wait to see when I will accomplish my 3rd goal.

Is that my last goal? NO WAY. My ultimate goal is to maintain my healthy lifestyle for the rest of my life.

I want to thank every single one of you for all your support and encouragement. Y'all have made this journey so much easier. Y'all are wonderful! Good luck to all of you and I will see y'all here on FS!

Oh Letty! What wonderful news! I too have a goal weight in the fifties and you are under where I am right now so I'm watching you. These last 20+ are needing to be lost are really important because my daughter is getting married this summer and I just know I'll see these pictures for the rest of my life so I want to remember it as the brilliant time in my life that it is!!! So I'm with you. It's like Glen is talking about too. A new and wonderfully healthy lifestyle I'm after.

Letty .... I nominate you to be one of "our poster children" because I think you really do get it. It's all about a healthy lifestyle, not a temporary restricted eating pattern. I hope you know how proud we are of you!
