I weighed 400 pounds in July of 2014. On that day I decided I had had enough, and so started on a low carb diet, and a swimming program doing laps 6 days a week for half an hour. I stalled in March of 2015 at 231 pounds and held it for 8 months, then got sick and gained to 294.5. On January 4, 2016 @ 294.5 pounds I restarted a different carb controlled program, and right now I am at 231.5 and going down beautifully.

I have injured my right rotator cuff from swimming so much, and am doing physio until it heals - and then back to the pool. Meanwhile I am learning to walk. That would be re-learning to walk because the weight and sedentary life changed my muscle strength and gait. So I am now walking and trying out Nordic poles.

At 400 lbs, I used a cane and a walker. I had to use a motorized cart in the supermarket. Everyday activities were extremely taxing. I had high blood pressure as well. I was on the list for knee replacements.

Today I walk on my own steam, am free of any medications and do not require any knee replacements as I have zero knee pain. I am 43.5 lbs. to my goal after which I make assessments for 6 months to see how well my skin readjusts before I notify a plastic surgeon for removal of hanging skin. That should account for abut 20 lbs. theoretically speaking.

I am looking forward to maintenance and a whole new body. And a lot more activity!

    Best of luck to you!
    I am going to try to start over. I ordered a wrist activity tracker and I will be loading the calorie watcher to my phone. I work at two jobs now and don't know when I will have time to walk. I think I need to layout a daily schedule. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Of course you are remembered Honouria...I always remembered your insightful comments.....and I looked up Moira Kelly she looks a lot like a young Gene Tierney,....but I'm probably showing my age because she was famous back in the 40's (I think)! LOL!
