As someone who also suffers from Bipolar Disorder and has some of the same side effects from my medication, your story is very motivational for me. I just started low carb last week at 335 lbs and as of this morning am 329.4. I was able to lose 43 lbs in 2009 doing low carb before but I was up to with in 10 lbs of where I started when I began last week. Seeing that it is possible gives me such hope. I've always been big and am really looking forward to what life is like as a thin person.

Candice, that's amazing! Thanks so much for sharing your story and posting such great before and after pics (and during!) I join the others in saying that you truly inspired me, and you are just what I needed.

I've fallen off the LC wagon since August and it's taken me all this time to get serious again. I share your bipolor issues, and likely some of the same meds you're taking. It doesn't make losing weight easier, but you have proved that it can be done, and done in a fantastic way.

How has your mental state changed since getting your body under control? I'd love to know if it's gotten better. Seems like it would have to!

I am filled with hope.

Thanks all!! :wub:
Forgot to post new pics here..


So when I hit size 2.. I got these jeans off of Ebay. Paid like $15 + shipping. They are VS London size 2 jeans. i waited.. and waited.. and waited for them to arrive.. well they arrived the other week.. I tried on and they did not fit. I wanted to cry. I was so bummed. I was then convinced that Old Navy was the only store I was as si...ze 2 in.. meaning that they vanity size. Well LOOKIE LOOKIE! They do fit! They are a little tighter then my ON jeans.. but still fit! I think maybe the other week when I put them all I was bloated and I had some water retention from exercising like 40 days in a row..
I'm so glad i tried on again!! Really makes me feel great to know I am not just a 'vanity size 2"!


Here is my progress AFTER exercise.. at this point I had already lost 70lbs.. but did not exercise yet...I was 158lbs and a size 12 after 70lbs lost.. I am now 143lbs and a size 2 after adding JM workouts.
