If you lost a lot of weight this year, post your pics and tell us your secret!!

Posted by   + Show Post

 

I lost almost 40 pounds this year, most of it between January and April. My husband has lost close to 60 pounds. I'm not trying to lose any more; I'm just trying to maintain and tone up.

How did we do it? Portion control, lots of water and exercise!! I enjoy Zumba, TurboKick and my husband runs, and lifts weights.

This was taken in August of 2011

This was taken in February of this year, when we first started losing weight. I had lost about 15 pounds at this point.

This was in April when I had lost about 32 pounds.

 

 

This was taken last Sunday.

EDIT: 2 new pics taken this afternoon

Quoting JenniferW67:



Wow!! You both look GREAT! Good job. What was the spur that made you go ahead and try?




Not being able to fit into our clothes anymore!!



According to a couple of Negative Nellie anons in Confessions, we look exactly the same in all the pictures. Personally, I think they're just cranky because they won't be able to buy Twinkies anymore!!



Yeah, I know that's not nice but they weren't nice either!!




Well it's probably true!! I'm not going to say that in Confessions, though. I'm not going to sink to their level. They can just wallow in their bitterness and misery WITHOUT their Twinkies :)


 


I'm in a good mood today because my cousin and her husband and son are coming up for Thanksgiving and I'm not going to let some bitter hags on MC get me down!!

Don't give them a second thought. They're miserable and want you to be too. You both look awesome. I bet your energy level is through the roof.
