Update from Kathleen (Jan 2014): “So, I am now down 107 pounds with 40 more to go. Here are some updated photos.”
Original Post: Tonight, we’re showing some BWLW love to Kathleen on her 80 pound weight loss. She graduates from college this month and she can now fit both legs in one of her old pair of pants.
“I have lost 80 pounds since July 5,2013. I am 6’2 and weighed 322 pounds when I started. I am now 242 pounds and still losing. These photos really shows the progress that I’ve made after 80+ pounds. I went from a size 26 to a size 14 and can fit 2 legs in one leg of an old pair of pants I use to wear!!
I have three beautiful daughters and they are my biggest motivation to be my best. I graduate in May this year from college and I will turn 40. On my 39 birthday, July 4, 2012, I decided that I needed to make a change, I realized if I started right away I had 10 months till my college graduation. I set my goal at 100 pounds by graduation and I am proud to say I have lost 80 pounds. I changed my eating habits completely and no longer eat fried foods. I drink only water, tea and occasional cup of coffee with very minimal sweetener. I work out at least 5 times a week for about 1 to 2 hours a session. I do the elipitical and stationary bike for cardio. I also do weights and abs and core work 3 to 5 times a week.”
