Me @ 199 lbs (-57 lbs).
Me at my heaviest - 260. I can't wait to be able to look at my profile without gagging.
Trying on clothes @ 189 pounds (-67 pounds lost).
The past year and a half of my life has been all about change and starting over.
My journey to better health and a better me started on May 1, 2012. I was upwards of 256 pounds, severely depressed, and my then husband was in the final stages of infidelity and ultimately divorce. It was my lowest low, and I was ready for something better for myself.
Between then and July 2012 I managed to lose about 68 pounds and gain an unbelievable amount of freedom, confidence, self-worth, and ambitions for the future. But as with any journey - I hit a snag! Between August and September of this year, I somehow managed to fall of the wagon and gain 10 pounds back!
So now I'm ready to revamp and make changes all over again in an attempt to meet my lifelong dream of a healthy, worthwhile lifestyle and a body to match. So here I am, trying to keep on keeping on!
1.) Reach 150 pounds. Between 2/1/15 and 2/1/16 lose at least 6 lbs a month.
2.) Adopt permanent healthy lifestyle changes.
05/1/2012 - 256 lbs.
1/19/15 - 231.4 lbs
2/1/15 - 222.4 lbs (- 9 lbs)
2/1/16 - 150????
Eat 1200-1550 Calories everyday.
Maintaining a diet focused on natural, fresh, and/or non-processed foods.
Drink at least 64 oz of water everyday.

Jordon, Here's what I wrote on Lane's page:
We must have all jumped on the same boat. LOL I do just enough to not gain all my weight back. The good news is, today is new and you are right, planning is key to getting back on track. Perhaps we can all get off this boat and keep pushing !!!

Happy Friday! Control is a tough issue for a lot of us. We can control some of what we do, but we can’t control everything! Keep pushing towards your goals. Even if you do not reach all of them, don’t give up! You can alter your goals or make new ones! Do your best to keep a positive and/or realistic attitude. You are AMAZING and WONDERFUL!

The size all depends on how much water you put in. The instructions suggest 8-10z of water. The 2 scoops of powder add another 2oz. I've actually put 12oz of water in it before and been ok, but it's a little thicker& creamier with 10. The muscle milks I get are all around that size anyway, so I've been ok with it. I'm guessing you buy the big curvy bottles that are like 250cal? There are certainly a lot more flavors available in that size that my little cartons :(
Also, my muscle milks were the ones I drink that are under 200. The GNC shake is like 220 or some crap. I wasn't too happy about that, but in the long run, it's not a lot more calories.
