I don't eat any prepared foods unless I prepared them myself. No frozen meals, fresh fruits and veggies, limited sodium and lots of organic foods.

Im going to have to try this. I want to drop 10lbs in a month cause I have to see my grandma who always says something about my weight (post ds).
Like "oh don't you miss being skinny."
I plan on eating healthy like Isis before ds, i just felt so much better (physically and mentally).

What an inspiring thread, I want to play!



I know everyone has seen these already, but I feel they are most appropriate here



Starting: 180 (size 16)
Two years and one baby later: 145 (size 8)

As pretty as my wedding dress was I felt like a cow in it. I was a size 12 when I chose it, and a size 16 the day of my wedding:

Thanks! If it weren't for pictures I wouldn't feel like I made any progress at all. Just stay committed, think positively, and keep fighting for your goal!
