I started my weight loss journey April 6th of 2011 and have lost 166 pounds, in just over a year. Strictly diet and exercise.

Running does wonders ;-)

  • Yes it does do wonders for the body AND the mind. :) AWESOME JOB!!! I also started when I needed to lose weight and I hate it when people say, "Look at how little you are," like I don't understand what it's like for them to be overweight. I stop and tell them, uhhhhummm..... I DO know what it's like to be overweight and it was a long road of self discipline and hard work to get to where I am now. Not to mention 2 years of staying disciplined. :) great job, Vanessa! You are a true success story! You motivate me even more. :)

  • you look fantastic! Congrats.

    I know how hard it is to get started and stay with it. 10 years ago i lost 90 lbs, gained most of it back and now I'm on the journey again...

    my advice when you get to your goal weight. Have an alarm weight in your head. The day you see that number again, you institute the same weight loss routine that got you to your goal.

    For me it was easy to say "oh well, i just gained 15 lbs"
    doing the journey again seems harder for me this time around... Being a new dad and over 30 are probably the main reasons :)

    Again, congrats Vanessa. Sorry for the long tangent. I am a sucker for amazing transformations.
