I did it!  
I've struggled with my weight for a long time, probably 10+ years. In all that time, during my various attempts to lose weight, I had one goal weight in mind: 10 stone or 140lbs (a BMI of 21.9).

Today, 22 months after starting this journey and changing my habits for good, I saw that weight on the scale for the first time.

I finally got there and the feeling is indescribable. I'm down 80lbs from a high of 220lbs (15 stone 10). I've been at a healthy weight for over a year now and I'm never looking back.

The plan now is to lose approx. another 5lbs (to give me a buffer to keep me under 10 stone) and then move into maintenance.

I just wanted to post here to share my success with people I know understand the trials and tribulations of weight loss. =)

WHOO HOO!!!!

*confetti*

This is really motivating for me to read. I too have been really trying to change my eating habits for good, and I hope to do as well as you have!

Thank you!


Honestly, I'm addicted to food and I always will be but establishing new eating habits has completely changed the way I approach things. I don't even remember how I used to eat before!

Congratulations! This is truly incredible. I had a similar starting weight and a similar end goal in mind. Thanks for the inspiration!

Thank you! It felt like such a huge undertaking to begin with but, the more success I achieved, the more confident I became that I could reach my goal.
