AJessup...I have to chime in with the others and just say what an amazing transformation! I had to scroll through your before and after pics two or three times because I thought I was looking at two different people.

You look amazing!!!! And so happy too!

Haha...thanks so much ladies!! You all are TOO sweet!!! Funny thing is, I was 27 in the before pics where you think I look old enough to be the baby's grandmother and 30/31 in all of the after's. Losing this weight took years off of my looks but it also gave me the confidence I had been lacking for about 4 yrs. or so. I lost the first 50 in about 6 months in 2008 and then the last 10 I just lost summer of '10. I'm still super critical of myself but I also feel good enough about myself to "try" harder with my hair and makeup, etc... which I think makes me look younger too! My motto during the whole process was "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels." Maintaining the weight is always a challenge but I know that I will NEVER let myself go back to looking like that again!! Keep up the good work ladies...you all are looking AWESOME!!!!

Thanks! Still working on it...

I didn't exercise for the first 70 lbs, just low carb. Now I low carb, run three times a week and choose either zumba or callanetics once a week, I also pay attention to calories and portion sizes now that I've gotten smaller.

I think you made a great decision to throw in some exercise. What kind of distances are you running? Have you ever thought about adding in a weight lifting routine? Great job with your weight loss. Very inspiring.

Piratewoman - great job too. That's a lot of success from 2010 to 2011. Very impressive.

Thanks! Right now it's about 5 miles/ 3x week, the Callanetics seems to be doing a lot of my strength training, but I have thought about weights too in order to increase muscle mass and decrease bf% more.
