View Full Version : I have to share!!!

As of today I have lost 100 lbs. I started Atkins January 21, 2004 and I started exercising for the first time ever. I have gone from a size 24 to a size 14 or 16 without a W after it. This is the first time I have shoped in a non-plus size store in 12 years. I know everyone here will understand what this mean to me.

I belong to a health club and they offer personal trainers for $33 an hour. I find the investment well worth the investment. I have to have regimentation. As many of you know if you go home you will not leave again. I go straight from work and they have free daycare during your workout. I also started spinning 3 weeks ago and can now make it through class without dying. I look forward to walking around WDW without having to stop for a breather and picking my rides by what I can fit into. This will be the first time in 12 years that I have not had to pry myself into/out of the airline seat.

My daughter wanted to go horseback riding last trip and I had to say no because the weight limit is 225. Now I have it planned for this trip, weather permitting.

Thanks for the continued encouragement
