 Hey...she looks darn good for being 53 years old! Heck she looks good no matter what age! Except of course she is not a Weight Watchers spokesmodel...she's with Nutrisystem.

Hmmm...let's see now...me sandwiched between Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Simpson.... 

 

Ok, not Marie.

 

How about Richard Simmons instead?  :lol:

Congrats Terry,  The wife and I have started a progam as well, called Maximized Living.  We started the nutrition portion last Monday.  I lost 7 in a week, she lost 5.

Good for you Terry! That's excellent!

 

For those of you that know me, I went from 325-330 lbs as of May 2009, down to 245-250 today. I was up to a size 50 in pants ( :o) and triple X shirts at one point. I'm about 6' 3" and folks didn't believe I weighed that much but I certainly would have crossed the 350 lb barrier soon enough had I kept going the way I was going.

 

I hated the way I looked in the mirror, didn't like how my clothes fit (especially shirts) and most of all, my health was beginning to suffer as high blood pressure and high blood sugar were setting in. I'm now down to a 38-40 in pants and XL shirts, my blood pressure and blood sugar are normal, and I don't have the run down tired feeling from just simply walking up a a flight of stairs.

 

I can tell you that it is a daily battle with me. There are certain things I just don't touch at all during the week. I do allow myself a "cheat" day (Saturdays) where I have just about anything I want for much of the day. Come Sunday, I don't want to see it again!

 

This works for me, and has been working for the last 3½ - 4 years now. I've taken to heart some very good advice from and older fellow I was talking to in the gym one day and he said this................"Losing weight is part of the battle, the war is keeping it off!"

 

How true that is!

I've been back & forth PM'ing Terry on this topic. When I get home I'll try to post my before & after pictures. Weight Watchers WORKS.

Dieting is one of the most challenging things I've done. Quitting smoking was easier!

Congrats Terry! I've always disliked diets. You know what a diet is don't you? A diet is where you can eat all you want of everything you don't like! :D

Congratulations Terry! I know how hard it is to lose weight, 5 years ago my weight and blood pressure were out of control i had ballooned up to 385 and my blood pressure was through the roof and to top it off my heart wasn't beating right! My Dr. told me flat out that if i didn't do something about the weight i was gonna die! 

That scared me enough to finally do something and i started on my wright loss journey, i went from a size 50 pants down to a loose 40 and today my weight is 229 and i still wanna lose another 10 to 20 pounds.

I credit my Dr. for saving my life and not pulling any punches just laying it right out there, but most of the credit goes to my girlfriend for supporting me through it all without her i don't know if i could have done it!

Even still today it's a daily battle not to go back to my old ways of eating fast food, soda and all that other stuff that packs the weight on!

Your not kidding John, it's probably one of the hardest things i have ever done, but it was all worth it!

 

When i met you a couple years ago, i was close to my heaviest point i'm almost half the size now from what i was then.

Well I'm just about done with losing weight!  I weigh exactly 210 now and most of my friends are telling me to not lose any more!  I feel pretty darn good now but I'd still like to tighten up the 'ol midsection some more. I see my Doctor on Thursday so we will see if he thinks I'm good at 210 or not.

 

The left side was almost 7 months ago...back in August of 2012. This was one of 2 photos that shocked me into going on this weight loss journey. And of course on the right is me today....minus 47 pounds!     Pic was taken on St Patty's day.

Congrats on the weight loss. I currently look a lot like the pic on the left. The wife just mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I needed to do something about my size. So we're starting WW ourselves. She lost 60 lbs a couple years ago on it, now its my turn. She needs to drop another 20-30, I need to drop 50. Feels like I'm getting ready to climb Mt Everest.
