Default 100+ pounds gone forever!

(I am 5'5" tall)
Highest weight: 224 pounds, size 20-22 jeans/pants, size 14-16 tops
Current weight: 124-125 pounds, size 4 jeans/pants, size 2-4 tops

I did a portion controlled/no deprivation food plan in addition to cardio and strength training to lose weight, then started with P90x program in March 2008 to mix up my exercise training, started Cathe workouts December 2008 and LOVE the results! I love my new body and my new muscles!! I have maintained 100 lb loss for two years and going strong. You can check out my blog at

I recognize you from MFD!
Congrats on your weight loss, I never saw your photos until now... you look awesome!!!
I was so pleased to see you on Cathe's forum as well as the other one I know you from. Your responses to my and others questions are always so helpful and full of great advice. I actually posted about Cathe's workouts and you responded so positavity that I joined this great forum and ordered STS and a bunch of her other workouts (Butts & Guts at your suggestion lol)

Glad to see you here as well.
