Celebrate with me today!
I just realized that as of today between LC and JUDDD I have lost 75 pounds (I started at 238 right after the birth of my first child) :jumpjoy::jumpjoy: It's taken a couple years but I'm the lowest weight since I was about 14 years old. I went from tight size 20/22's to 10/12 and I buttoned and zipped a pair of 8's the other day.

Also my husband who is doing JUDDD with me just dipped into the 250's which means he has lost a little over 100 pounds total :jumpjoy:

You can do it guys! It does take time and effort and weight loss doesn't always fall along our set timelines but if you continue to work, you will get there :up:

That is so fantastic. I can't imagine fitting into an 8 and really don't know that I ever will. I will be really happy with a 12. Now I just need to focus more. My husband just started LC this week so that will be helpful.

Hi, MTF,
we must be twins.
Congrats on your loss so far. Even at my lowest adult wght (159) I could just squeeze into a 12. My bones are 14 at the minimum. Sometimes I let that be too important.
I am trying, this time, to just be gentle w/ myself.
If the day comes that I can say I have been bingefree for anything over 2 weeks I will celebrate.
This thread inspires me.

I am so happy for you & your husband!! I hope to be just like you when I grow up! ;)


BaileysGirl 09-25-2012 10:31 AM

Awesome! Congrats! I like the idea of not rushing weight loss! I've done it so many times and gained it all back. This time I have chosen to lose some, maintain for a while then lose some more.

stephdray 09-25-2012 11:00 AM

Wow! I am throwing virtual confetti over here. I love how you know how much you weighed when you were fourteen. I can only imagine how emotional you must have been when you hit that number. I'm getting weepy just thinking about it. Congratulations!!!

Luv2Eat 09-25-2012 11:03 AM

Elise, your perseverance is awe inspiring :sing:

Don't those small jeans feel soooo good? Congratulations :clap:

Seabreezes 09-25-2012 11:20 AM

Congratulations to both of you. It so helps when hubby is doing the same thing and supportive.


KathyL 09-25-2012 11:31 AM

Amazing! Congrats to you and your dh. All your hard work is paying off. :)

mttemple4 09-25-2012 11:40 AM

I am so happy for you! Yay!!! And such a great reminder about the timeline. I have failed so many times because I wasn't making "enough" progress to meet some crazy deadline. Even now I get kind of upset at losing "only" 4 lbs a month. But I have been doing it consistently and it beats the alternative, right? :)

Way to go, you!!!!!!!!!

sungoddess 09-25-2012 12:51 PM

I am truly celebrating with you. Awesome job!


KeirasMom 09-25-2012 01:21 PM
