I have lost 50 pounds since last January! I lost the equivalent of an entire 3th grade child! I still have 25 to go but 50 seems amazing.

CONGRATULATIONS, BarnMom!!! You should be so proud of yourself. Keep doing what you're doing and that last 25 lbs will be gone before you know it.

BarnMom~What are you doing to lose the weight? Congratulations! You are well on your way!

You stay with it, gal!

50 pounds is amazing! Nothing can stop you now! YAY!

Go to a pet store and lift a 50 pound bag of dog food if you want a real ego boost! That's how much you've lost!!!!!

You are so close to the goal!---over halfway there!

Thanks for inspiring us!

RE: 50 pounds! The milestone!

I am doing it the old fashioned way, eating less, exercising more. I am not following a specific plan but have cut out the things I know are bad, red meat, fried foods, butter, pastries, candy, etc. I eat fruit, salads, cottage cheese, low fat yogurt, chicken breasts. I do treat myself occasionally to a piece of candy or a cookie but not daily.

I don't have the patience to count anything, calories or carbs. I hated WW meetings. I couldn't take Jenny Craig food. So the only option left was to figure out how to make it work for myself on my own.

I walk an hour a day, up a hill if I can find one. I do 30-45 minutes of light weigh training, squats and crunches. I take an occasional day off if I a really tired or really busy. I don't go to a gym. I think taking some classes at a gym or getting some training advice might step up my progress but can't find a place to fit it in yet.

I eat 5 times a day, meals and 2 snacks. I keep the snack at about 100 calories and try to make it protein to keep my blood sugar steady. I take vitamin supplements and drink green tea.

Your diet sounds very sane. Thanks for posting as an inspiration for the rest of us. Keep up the great work!

RE: 50 pounds! The milestone!

Congratulations and best wishes for the future....I'm sure with the way you are headed, the 25 pounds you have left will be gone by this time next year!!

Stay healthy!
