    Lol

    It's amazing how much weight you can lose in photoshop. I noticed that the second picture is narrower than the first. I should try that:toasting:

    I've been working out so long that I haven't gotten very sore in a long time.. Then I broke down three pallets of tile and carried them in case at a time from the driveway to a nice resting place in the back of the garage. Can't wait until I start installing it.. I'm sure the feeling will come back.

    Managed to get drop another 15 in January on schedule. Had to stop the last couple of weeks because I went a little overboard and got my bowel operation all whacked. I'm almost back to normal, I'll be back on track by Monday.

    Good for you! Anyone that can stick with a fitness plan is doing great. It takes a great deal of discipline to to that.

    It seems all I ever hear from people who ask me how to lose weight, or to help them lose weight is excuses.

    I wish I had some before photos but I am one who has never liked having my pix taken so I don't have any. when I get where I am going down to, I'll have hubby snap a pix.

    me too. they really hate it when I tell them there was no magic or super pill or anything but eating right and working out. I've done all the crazy diets out there and failed as they work but they aren't something that you can live a real life doing. eating right and working out is easy as it is all you have to do, no cabage soup, no grapefruit, no meat only, no food coming in the mail, no shakes, none of that nonsense

    I've lost about 15 pounds since the beginning of the year just by cutting some junk food out of the diet. I love Taco Flavored Doritos™ but the empty carbs just add sludge on the mid-section.

    Downside: a little bit of muscle mass lost. Can't bench press quite what I could back in December, but I'm almost there. I've been taking a couple core and sports conditioning classes at the gym and getting pretty cut. I'm looking good and well on the way to having six pack abs by summer.

    Thanks Marlene. The first pic was taken 04/28/2010 the other pic was taken today.

    It was a lot of work but I did kinda cheat. I had a Gastric Bypass done on 8-23-2010 But it's been a lot of work and life changes to keep it off.

    not cheating at all as people think it is all they have to do and it sure isn't. I know several people who have done the bypass and have gone back to what they were before. it takes a lot of work to maintain and to keep it off.

    I'll hit my 85 pound mark at this week's Weight Watchers meeting. I still have a few more to go but it sure looks a ot more doable than the overwhelming amount I was looking at a year ago.

    Keep up the good work Marlene. Your right it's a lot of work to keep it off. I know people who have had the surgery and gained it all back as well. It takes a lot of life style changes. Big Al gets me going with all his talk of food though. LMAO
