so awesome! I started in 2007 and am inching my way toward -200 myself! My original goal has been exceeded and my doctor's goal for me is 165, but -200, or 155 puts me in the healthy range!

We're even the same height, but from the looks of it you're much younger than I am! Not to mention beautiful. I wish you tons of luck & success!

You look great & talk about someone with perseverance! I remember reading your posts and you didn't give up for anything when l/c stopped working for you. Frankly, you made me realize how lucky I am that l/c continued to work for me, being a hypothyroid yo-yo dieter.

I have to say that I love that Tonedbody was the first to ask me about exercise and excess skin. Very fitting!

So... did you call the Atkins people and share your story? I really think you should! What you have achieved is amazing! More people should know about this, then more people would stop demonizing low-carb lifestyles and start listening to what works!

Well done!

Mia.

WOW Jennifer! You are an amazing person! I would love to hear some words of wisdom, keys to success, etc. I am always looking for inspiration especially on days [lately more than usual] when I feel like I will never get to goal....

But again ..AWESOME , amazing work you have done!!! Be proud!

OMg !!! How in the world did I not see this post last week ?!!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS !!!

I had been down on myself a lot lately. Last February, I was within 20 lbs of goal, started bouncing up and down the same 5 lbs and gave up. And that led to 10 - 15 lbs coming back before I realized what I'd done to myself.

But, y'know what ? You may BE at goal. Most of the extra weight is probably the left-over skin. Seriously. Before you try to lose that last 15, you may should talk to your doctor and find out where your fat percentage is. You don't want to be just a skeleton under all of that excess skin.

So, this might be a great time to start toning your muscles for the day when you can have your skin removal surgery. If you're "under weight" (when they subtract for excess skin), they may refuse to do the surgery.

Just a thought.

Wow!! Congratulaitons!! and thanks for sharing your story!!
YOU ARE MY HERO!!! Seeing ladies like you on this site (that have lost big numbers) just give me more determination to stick it out- and the belief that I can do it too!!! Thanks for the pics too. I am trying to get my nerve up to post some because i have lost a little over a 100lbs (in about the past 3 years) and been a dedicated low carber for 1 year now...so your pics are really an inspiration. What's a collarbone? lol! THANK YOU!!
