That is a big boy for sure... Mack is 16.2. You have done really well!!! Keep it up!!! I found the 6 week body make over really worked for me... Just need to get back to it... that and working with my boy :)

You've got a great start! It can be hard w/the holidays upon us, but stay strong & you will keep feeling better. I put on 10 pounds or so this year, & I've lost five pounds just recently. I love how my clothes fit better.

I also had put on the pounds. I was depressed and didn't really care. My husband bought me a beautiful paint horse. I hadn't had horses in years. I changed the way I ate only by reducing my portion size. My exercise was my new paint. I lost 70 pounds. I have not put it back on and it has been four years now. But I have a beautiful paint! :)

I think the largest issue is always the portions size. Did you know that the size of plates has increased tremendously? People unconsciously try to fill up their plates, and with larger plates, they eat larger portions. Serving sizes in resaurants have increased a lot, too.

Sorry, haha, MySissyGirl's comment just reminded me of this... both my parents are ex-body builders/ fitness trainers/ health and fitness nuts, so I have a lot of trivia and stuff tucked away in my little brain, haha.

Well, anyway, great progress and keep it up, you're amazing!!

I have bought a smaller plate to cut my portions down. I have lost 9lbs so far :) but still a long way to go yet. I am not dieting just eating healthy foods and cutting out the processed foods and such.

I joined a gym and workout every night now, then swim too so I am hoping the weight will come off now. I hate being a pony squisher :(. I have been thinking about getting a bigger stronger horse recently but its my little fell mare that I love and trust.

I love this little section of this forum, Knowing I am not the only one has made me feel less down on myself.
