Talking I lost 100 pounds!!!!!!

I started low carb dieting in Feb 2004. Before I started my diet I weighed about 230 pounds and now I am down to about 130 pounds. So in 14 months I have lost 100 pounds. I am 5' 4" tall. I have gone from a size 22 down to a size 5/6 and I am very excited! I have been extremely overweight almost all of my adult life (about 20+ years). A few reason that I decided to finally try to lose weight were actually seeing what I looked like in my vacation pictures taken in Jan 2004. I felt like crying when I saw those pictures. My oldest daughter got married in November 2004 and I wanted to lose enough weight to look good for the wedding. I also suffer from lower back pain and was always tired lugging around so much extra weight on my small frame. Since I have now reached my goal I have added back complex carbs and all fruit back into my diet. I will never add in the bad WHITE stuff again to my diet like white flour, regular pasta, white rice, and ALL SUGAR! I am very committed to keeping the weight off and staying this size for the rest of my life! Since I have lost 100 pounds I feel so much better... I have more energy and feel so much better about myself. I joined this forum in late August after I had lost about 75 pounds all on my own. It was so much easier to lose the last 25 pounds with all the help and support of everyone in this forum... to those people I extend my gratitude! For those reading this who are just beginning their journey... please keep at it! If I can do it .. you can do it... just take it one low carb day at a time!
