    Thanks to a friend who sent me her left over Nutrisystem food and me realizing that all I need is to consume 1200 calories a day, I have started to loose weight..I do not see it yet, however, this morning I was able to put on my old favorite pair of jeans that I have not been able to wear in 3 years!!

    The best part is that they are not tight and I can breathe and do not have to worry about popping the button on them when I sit down!!

    Even though I do not notice the weight loss, my neighbor across the street commented last night that I look as though I am loosing weight..

    I now just have to keep plugging along and keep the calories down to 1200 until I reach my main goal..Then keep plugging along to maintain that weight..


    Starting next week I will get back in the habit of going to the gym on Base and see if I can speed up the weight loss process..:D

    Congrats! I used to love the gym. Not an option these days.

    That's cool. I still have my pants from 3 years ago hoping for the day I can wear them again. lol.

    The gym on Base is usually dead in the early morning hours and that is when I will go..There is nothing worse than working out in front of thin people that can run at a steady pace on the treadmill for over an hour when I poop out after 15 minutes :eek:

    When people say I look like I'm losing wegiht, I tell them no, I'm just as fat as you thought!:D Makes them realize how rude they were, they don't tell me I look like I'm gaining when I am, just when I lose!:D


    And Teddy, I'm VERY envious of you, congrats

    Congrats Teddy! I am sure you have read about my "when harry met sally" moment with Lanae when I tried on a pair of 5/6 jeans at aeropostale and they FIT. OMG, I have to say that was the best moment I have had in YEARS. I haven't worn that size since I was Head Cocktail waitress 10 years ago :eek: I never ever thought my ass would see the inside of a pair of 5/6 jeans again :eek:

    1200 a day is what my dr has me on right now, I have been on a platue lately but hoping to break through it soon.

    CONGRATS on the loss! Isn't it great motivation :D

    The Nutrisystem food tastes like my Mother's cooking..There are some things that are actually pretty good and then there are some things my dog won't eat :eek:

    I am running out of the food now, but I won't be getting anymore of it..I will just stick to the 1200 calories a day and include more salads and healthy snacks so that I do not feel as if I am starving myself..I am the type of person that if I thought I was being deprived I would go off of the diet and eat everything that was not nailed down all at once :eek:

    But I am not feeling like that, and this is why it is working for me..

    If I can ever squeeze my rear into a size 5/6 jean, you will all be able to hear my screams of joy for miles and miles..The last time I was that size was 16 years ago:eek:

    Congrats.

    I have been deiting for 2 weeks, and started hitting the gym heavy for a week now.. I have lost a few lbs. I cant see it yet, but I will say I feel better. I could careless how many lbs I lose, but I am determined to get back into my size 8 clothes.

    Congrats on the loss of weight! I am sure that you can keep it up.

    I am still fighting on loosing weight myself after being pregnant for almost 2 years. I had my first son in June of 2006, and went back to work after 2 months and found out on Halloween that I was 12 weeks pregnant with son #2.

    It is taking forever to get the weight off! I have no time to work out so I just watch what I eat and my workout consists of playing with the boys.

    I have 15 lbs left to get to get to target and then 15 more to get to where I was when I got married!

    You guys CAN DO THIS! If I can do it anyone can! I have 10-12 more to go until I am at my "dream weight" and am fighting it now. I went from a VERY VERY tight size 14/16 in May of 2008. I totally did not expect a 5/6 but when I couldn't fin any 7/8 (thinking they would be too tight) I figured it wouldn't hurt to try them on. I just about fainted when the slid right up :eek:

    If I can do this ANYONE can :eek:

    Teddi, that's great! I love when I can fit into something that I'd packed away from my fat days. Congrats!
