You really are an inspiration! After reading this, I've vowed to go the low-carb route again. I have almost the exact same stats as you did when you started (except age - I'm 48), and although I know I won't lose the 80 pounds I want to in a year, I'll at least have a good start at it.

I did the 30-day shred a couple years ago.. not daily, but enough... and it is definitely a butt-kicker! I still have the dvd, but probably won't do that until I lose at least 30 pounds due to some back/hip issues I'm having.

Keep up the good work!

And congrats on that beautiful new baby boy!

Shocking similarites!

Hi Candice - First off I want to say congrats on such an amazing job! - you truly are inspirational, and thank you so much for sharing your story!

Second - I joined this site just so I could reply to your post - I have to point out the incredible similarities between us... when I happened across your recipes then read about who you were I was very shocked to say the least - even pointed it out to my fiance who was also taken back!

My name is also Candice.... my highest weight was also 242 (currently I am down to 221 after almost one month of Low Carb ) You are 2 years older than I am but - according to your dated photos - you started dieting in 2010 - when you were 29. I just started my diet 1 month ago, and I am 29.... lol, and whats really funny, 2 years ago I had the exact same colour of pink in my hair... crazy stuff!

I had to point all of that out - I mean, what are the chances! Once again, congratulations in all you have accomplished!!

I think I may have already posted this, but WTG on your loss!! I'm so inspired!! Definitely needed to read this as the scale has gone up since adding back more exercise, and I need to remember it will work, just takes time!!

You are my inspiration!!

I am starting with similar stats (and shape, my thighs are bigger than my hips just like yours were) and I always thought that I was stuck with this body for ever. But having seen you, I believe I can make a change too!

I just wanted to ask, you said that you "added exercise into my life around 158lbs" did you lose all weight before that by diet alone? How long did that take? What was you typical day meal plan then?

Lady you Rock! You are an inspiration to all of us!!
