Hi Sherrie Pie! I first want to say CONGRATULATIONS!!! WOOOOOO!!!!! ~doin a happy dance for you~
Second I want ot say THANK YOU! June 1st will be my one year anneversery...with an 8 month hiatus..there were many many reasons for this, but no excuses for sure.

I am kicking myself for ever stopping, I had lost 50 pounds in 3 months with no excersize! Now I am back in the game, and I not looking back! I went from a 22 to a 14, and I cried! I never thought I would ever be small again!

 Excuse, I tend to talk in exclamation..I get so excited hehehe :D I also have a ways to go, but being a part of the FTS family is definatley helping me on the second leg of my journey. I thank God that I have changed enough of my eating habits to not gain any weight back WHEW

YOU my darling, are a major inspiration to me today, and for that I thank you yet again :)
God Bless ~zombiegirl :)

Izzet you're back! We've missed you. ;)

Little update....only five pounds away from my final goal! 195 lost!

A month or so ago I thought I might try to loose another 20 or so but I am learning I'm really happy where I am right now. So I think when I hit the final five gone I'll learn about maintaining. I can't believe it's almost done!!   ;D ;D ;D ;D

That's wonderful Sherri! :) :) :)

I've too toyed with the idea of adjusting my goal weight.
But I think the wisest thing to do is see how I look and feel as I approach it.

I went underweight by about twenty pounds in my early 20s. I looked gaunt and felt weak.
After putting the 20 back on, I felt and looked much better.
The sad part was, I did not stop at 20 because I was not living an FTS lifestyle.
I did not know how to readjust my eating patterns to maintain my "ideal" weight and be satisfied with what I was eating.

My current goal weight is set to my "ideal" weight when I was in my early 20s.
Being much older, I may reach my new "ideal" before I reach my current goal.
But I'll consider crossing that bridge as I approach it.

That's wonderful!  I felt the same way and decided to hang out at my size 8 for a while and see how I feel. Weight fluctuates a few pounds up and down but I feel good.  Hey isn't that a song? lol  I still need to do something about my upper body flab on my arms. It seems to be the last to go but it's better.  Maybe another 10lbs and we'll see.

Keep it up girlfriend!
Peace and blessings,

IzzeT

SherriPie I am so excited for you.  You are going to have an amazing summer.  Lots of new things to explore.

Izzet, I have been using Bio Oil on my skin.  It is helping with my neck and my arms.  It is for scars, stretch marks and aging skin.  Seems to help.  It can be found in Canada & the US.  I've seen it in my local pharmacies, Walmart & Costco.  http://www.bio-oil.com/en-us/

Hi ShihTzuMom1! :)

Does Bio Oil really work?

I have some stretch marks that I've been carrying around for a number of years.
Although some are disappearing with my weight loss, others look like there with me to stay.
They really look bad when I get a sun tan.

If this stuff will reduce or eliminate them, I'd be super happy! :)

All I can say is that my neck and arms are not as saggy as they were.  I'm in my early 50's so my skin is not as elasticky as it used to be so I think this is helping.  I put it on shortly before I go to bed each night.  I also used it a few years ago on a scar from surgery.  It didn't totally take away the scar but it is not very noticeable.
