Thread: On going achievement

  1. #1

    Default On going achievement

    I have lost 120 lbs and have been maintaining within 10 lbs for 7 years! I have made it a lifestyle!

    I exercise regularly and train for long distance endurance events like 100 miles on a bicycle.

    I don't go off program. I eat till I'm satisfied on healthy foods(I do core)

    If my grade school and college classmates, roommates could so me now! They wouldn't recognize me.

    Have I been coasting for 7 years since reaching lifetime? Absolutely not. I work the program EVERY day. I exercise most days. I exercise when I'm tired, have a cold, etc.. The last time I took more than 2 days off in 8 years was last year when I got pneumonia. I feel blessed to be able to exercise. I know some cannot. I started walking less than a mile, built up to powerwalking up to 4 miles, and now run regularily and train for bicycle rides in the spring.

    My coworkers hear that I lost 120 lbs(none of them knew me when I was overweight) and their jaw drops.


    I will try to get some pictures to post.

    I believe that BCB played, and is playing a part in my success.
    Its worth every ounce of determination and self-discipline required to make this a lifestyle!

    Wow so you are one of the 5% who keep it off in the long run. Congratulations. I am trying so hard to make this happen to me. I am not done losing yet though. Congratulations. I'd love to see pictures.
    Nice job and thank you for the inspiration.

    That is AWESOME! You give me inspiration and motivation to keep going. I started walking a 1/2 a mile every day when i first started ww back in july and now i'm up to powerwalking 3 miles everyday. The walking and exercise really gives me the boost to keep going, i use to hate exercising i would find every excuse in the book not to exercise finally after i had my baby last summer and i was at a wopping 225 i decided enough was enough and i was so sick of being fat. So far i'm down to 169 and doing great, if i miss a day of walking it about kills me the guilt is awful. I'm so addicted to the exercise and eating healthy foods. Thank you so much for your story it really gives me the push that i can do it and make my goal and keep it.
