Update To Becky's Story As Of April 20th 2009

In January, my husband and I won the Mr. & Mrs. Slimming World Competition for our group. In March, I won the Slimming World's Greatest Loser competition for our group by being the one in the group who had lost the most weight. It felt great to be noticed and awarded for all of the weight I have worked so hard to lose.

I am now alternating workouts on the Wii Fit and the elliptical, and I have once again increased my walking. I am using handweights for some strengthening exercises.

I have clothes that I bought which were too small for me, but by the time I got around to trying them on again, they were too big for me!

To date, I have lost 90.5 pounds (6 stone 6.5 pounds). I am now only 47 pounds (3 stone 5 pounds) away from my goal weight. I have gone from a high weight of 272.5 pounds (19 stone 6.5 pounds) down to 182 pounds (13 stone) so far. I look better than I have in years, and I feel better too. I am much healthier now and definitely stronger now than I was before.

On May 12th, I will have been on this health journey for one year. I'm hoping to have lost 100 pounds (7 stone 2 pounds) by then. My weight loss is a lot slower now, so I may not reach the full 100 pounds by then, but I'm happy that my weight is still coming down and that I will be close to reaching that goal.
