I lost 164 pounds! See my before and after weight loss pictures, and read amazing weight loss success stories from real women and their best weight loss diet plans and programs. Motivation to lose weight with walking and inspiration from before and after weightloss pics and photos.Like many folks, I had gained weight slowly over many years. I found myself at age 68 weighing 301 pounds and unable to walk more than a few feet without joint pain. None of my doctors blamed it on obesity — they wanted to treat me with pain treatments, injections, patches, and pills. I asked, “Is it arthritis?” I got evasive answers.

On the scale at my primary care doctors, I finally allowed the nurse to tell me how much I weighed. For years, I refused to let her tell me. When she said “301” I burst into tears on the scale.

For the next 19 months I ate only 1 healthy meal per day and absolutely no calories in between. It’s a modified version of the Fast-5 Diet by Burt Herring (see www.fast-5.com) wherein my eating window is only 1 hour per day, with plenty of water, coffee, and diet tea in between.

I reached my goal in 2010 and have kept it off ever since, generally by sticking to the Fast-5 lifestyle. My doctor does not approve…she still thinks people should eat many small meals per day. But she can’t argue with my numbers: cholesterol down, blood pressure down, sleep apnea cured, triglycerides down. At age 71, my numbers are unbelievably good and more importantly, I am totally pain free.

I also look great. People do not recognize me. I went from 301 pounds to 137 pounds in 19 months, losing over half of my body. My current weight is 145 and holding. I’m happy with that, as I was actually gaunt at 137. (I’m 5’6″ and have an artificial knee and extra skin that take up a few pounds.) I look fantastic in my size 8 skinny jeans. Still have the 26W jeans from back in 2009 and cannot believe I filled them.
