Default Hi everyone! Before and during pic!

I still have about 40 to lose but I thought I would post this. I've actually used Fitday for nearly 12 years now but just this past year I got hardcore and everything fell into place with my weight loss. And I have never checked out the message boards until today! Insane!

Wow insane difference! Congrats. 12 years here is very cool. I don't know of anyone that has been here that long.

My husband got serious about getting healthy and fit and he dropped 50 pounds and is now running 1/2 marathons. I want to keep up with him. I don't want to be the fat wife....to put it bluntly. And for myself, of course. I don't want to be embarrassed to do fun things, I live in San Diego and I NEVER go to the beach! Next summer will be different.

I think the slow changes helped me...I didn't drastically change all of my bad habits at once.

That's the way to get 'er done - super job Bonny! And to reiterate... don't be a stranger to the forums. We'd love to read about your continued progress

Bonny, great progress!

I wish the forums had been here years ago. 12 years! I think you've got me beat--my first weight log on FitDay was around July of '01 (If only I'd stayed!).

Keep doing what you're doing and don't be a stranger!

Regards,
Michael

Yeah my first entry was in March of '04. I wish I knew then what I know now. I would have saved myself a lot of grief.
