My One Year Anniversary on FTS- 170 pounds GONE FOREVER!!
« on: March 29, 2011, 09:09:38 AM »
One year ago today I cleaned out my pantry and logged on to this site. I posted my first post (see the link below) and declared I was going to change my life. I am proud to say a year later and 170 pounds lost FOREVER, that I am very glad I made that change. I have gone from a size 32 to a size 16 in one year. That is more than HALF my size! I still have a ways to go but I have to tell you I am THRILLED to be a size 16!! I have made some amazing friends on this site, learned about eating correctly and changed my life for the better. I want to thank you all for listening to me complain, bitch, moan, threaten to bury the scale, laugh and be amazed when it all works out. You are all great friends and I thank you for supporting me through this past year.  ;D

I also am posting my before and afters below.

SherriPie - I have to say you are an incredible testament to willpower, to the lifestyle, and to yourself!  I can only be impressed and amazed by you and thrilled that there is someone like you on here urging everyone forward.  Bravo chica!

Happy anniversary in your new life, Sherri! :) :) :) :) :) :)

Your testimony reminds us that sometimes it takes a while to shake off a lifetime of how NOT to lose weight and all the false expectations that go with it.

Did you know that, according to the National Center for Health Statistics, the average weight for an adult female in the United States is 162.9 pounds?

Bravo to you my dear friend... Bravo!!!
What you do today is what matters!

Oh Congratulations & Happy Anniversary Sherri!  I wish I could just hug your neck & give you a well deserved pat on the back!!!   You, Owensmath, & Umpa have been my go to girls for inspiration and advice!

Wouldn't it be cool if we had an FTS consignment shop for members only!  ha ha   I am no where near a 16 yet, so I could've put those hand me downs to good use!  ha ha

Enjoy your day!!  You are amazing!!!!   ;D

I love your tenacity and strength. You did all this with no exercise proving there is no excuse for anybody that truly wants to lose weight and get healthy.I am very proud of you my friend ;D
