In the first week I lost 9 lbs bringing me down from 214 to 206/205 and I was "stuck". I was very upset but I noticed something that made that "little" amount worth it... my clothes don't fit! My skirts are 38 in waists and USED to be tight in the hips and waist. Now they slide off without unbuttoning! My new size 16 shorts are the same way. I'm now down to 202 and really starting to feel good! I've eating healthy small meals and plan to start riding bikes and walking in the mornings once things settle down a bit.
Hubby started the herbal combo and in two weeks he's dropped 7 lbs. I'm not sharing his weight as that's not my place but he is looking good too!
The Dr thinks I need to drop about 50-60 lbs to be the right size for my 5'10 frame. I think that is too thin (I've btdt and looked like a stick!) so I am aiming for my around 170lbs because I have a lots of muscle.
Hubs thinks he could stand to loose the same amount.
So who will hit the goal first?
My guess is Hubs. Once he has knee surgery and is back to his active self at work he will drop weight like no one's business! But I'm going to try and give him a run for it!
A few pics to show where I've come from...
Please be gentle with me I know I let myself go between having babies, surgeries, and depressions.

the 38 in waist of this skirt is barely staying on my hips!
