my best friend is rounding the corner on having lost 100 pounds. she's almost there!
lemme tell ya, for years she's been "sure" she was going to have to have skin removed all over the place, but now that she's almost into a size 8, she has totally changed her tune! she's totally surprised at how well stuff went back into place. and i mean to tell ya, Shell, she was majorly bummed for a long long time at the prospect of "all that skin" as she used to say! it seemed at about 15 pounds to her goal is when it all kinda came into place. she still considers having the boobs put back where they started, but even that isn't as worrisome to her as it used to be!
since it's so much better than she'd expected, she's just implemented a "boot camp" where she is working out to some DVD every day, neverfail, and going to yoga once a week. it's really helping tone stuff up. since you're so good abou the gym, you're probably ahead of the game! once you loose, you'll be peeled down to ripped muscles!
