Hi Candi. I think you're amazing. Well done, you!

I hope I haven't missed this if you've already mentioned it, but did you count calories as well, or did you only count carbs?

Thanks. And, again, awesome job!

Just starting - today. Reading your story and moreover, SEEING your pictures has made me a believer. I had tried low refined carbs before, and thought maybe it was "too severe" a life change for me, and did not feel like I had people around me who lived this lifestyle and would go back to eating processed highly refined carbs.... but it is great to see your story and be TRULY INSPIRED. You really do make it seem so easy. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for sharing! and to all of you whose success stories help carry us onward to.... slim

Candace, Thank you so much for telling us your story! I have been wasting so much time NOT working out and I'm so pissed at myself for being such a slug. I have had my JM 30-Day Shred sitting next to the DVD player for over a month and haven't pushed play once! My WOE is excellent and I'm having lots of success there. But, your story, especially the paragraph where you detail how many sizes you went down doing the Shred, has inspired me to no end! I read your post yesterday and I have thought about you SO. Many. Times since. In honor of you (and my future), I am going to push play for the first time today. I'd be happy if I just firmed everything up and never lost another size. Although, losing a size will be acceptable too. At my age, I need to get this show on the road. Working out has to be another lifetime commitment for me.

Thanks again for your motivating story and pictorial. It's amazing!

Thanks for sharing your story - very inspirational.

I know I've got a Jillian DVD somewhere.
I don't think it's "Shred", but I'm going to pull it out and dust it off...

Wonderful job! This is what I needed to see for motivation. I had fallen off the wagon big time and I'm very disgusted with myself and am about the highest I have been. Once I seek medical attention for sciatica and get down to a more comfortable size, I hope to begin/continue a regular exercise program. I just love the before and after photos!!

Thank You

Candace, thank you for sharing your story. I started Atkins on 4-11-11 and have lost 30 pounds. I am so proud but have stalled the last week. After seeing your pictures I am turning up the heat and pushing hard to lose the last 23. I found Shred free OnDemand, so I stsrted it today. It was hard, but I pushed and did it. By my 48th bday in Sept, I am looking forward to wearing smaller sizes!!! Congrats and thanks again for not just inspiring me, but all of the people who have posted as well!!!

thanks all! :wub:

Soo.. posted this on Atkins FB wall the other day.. thought I would post here..


I've been wanting to post a 6 month maintenance post for like a month now.. but things have changed.. I don't know if it's the low carb(of course other low carbers tell me this! lol).. or just weight loss in general(but I'm thinking not as I lost weight many years ago to try and get pregnant and it did not work.. it was a low cal/low fat plan..) But anyhow.. My husband and were surprised a few weeks ago.. found out I was 9wks along. REALLY big shock as we tried to conceive for like 7 years with no luck and ended up having to do IVF to have our son.... I have been able to maintain for the most part so far. I am 13wks now. I have gained around 10lbs, but really all mostly belly as you can see. I have been having more carbs from veggies, fruits, and nuts. Really hope to keep low carb during this pregnancy and not do what I did with my last and gain around 70lbs! So far, so good So this is pretty much my 6 month maintenance post :-D

Wow! Just found this thread and boy do you look great!! You are one fit pregnant gal now. What a wonderful bonus for you.

I have been yo-yoing within 5-10 lbs from goal, but really I have to get myself doing the exercise like you did. At my age, even when I'm thin it is squishy, and that does not make me happy.

Just gotta get the air conditioner fixed up here and then I will start -- I've gotta have some cool temps to work out in. And it is 100 outside pretty much everyday right now.

You are an inspiration!
