Going, Going, Gone! I Lost 145 Pounds Weight Loss Success Story

From eDiets - The online diet, fitness, and healthy living resource

If you took the weight of the average woman (138 pounds) and added 7 pounds, you would get a visual of just how much Christy Holsclaw has lost since joining eDiets… an entire person!

Christy 145 Pounds Overweight Shes a shining example of an incredible shrinking woman, having dropped a whopping 145 pounds. When the 23-year-old Virginian became a member of the leading online weight loss program in September 2000, she weighed her all-time high of 275 pounds. Christy had a long life ahead of her, and she couldnt imagine spending it morbidly obese.

Instead of wallowing in self pity and extra pounds, the determined dieter took control… and took back her life. Today, she stands tall (kind of) and proud (definitely) at 5’4" and 130 pounds, her goal weight. In her wildest dreams, she never imagined she would actually be petite.

“It’s unbelievable,” she tells eDiets. “I really thought 150 pounds would be as low as I could ever get. I never had a concept of what I would be like at this weight. It’s pretty much a new experience. It’s incredible.”

Christy 130 Pounds Looking back, Christy cant remember the last time she weighed so little. Less than two years ago, she was comfortable in a size 28. These days, she still cant believe she fits into a size 4 or 6. The road to wellness has been a long one for Christy. Her first diet was a medically supervised weight-monitoring program at the age of 11. From there, she tried everything including Weight Watchers, but it was just one failure after the next. Part of the reason was she wasnt ready.

It wasn’t common for Christy to eat a bag of chips while reading a book. Nor was it out of the ordinary for her to polish off a six-pack of Coke… then go out to dinner and not blink an eye. This was the girl who managed to get out of the required year and a half of physical education in high school. Between poor eating habits and no activity, Christy was doomed to life in the fat lane.

It seemed like every aspect of her life was being weighed down by obesity. Even her high school graduation was marred by those extra pounds.

“I was so worried about falling,” Christy told eDiets in January. “I worried about everybody staring at me. They had a one size-fits-all gown and it didn’t fit! It felt way too tight. I felt absolutely ridiculous and there wasn’t anything I could do about it.”

One of the biggest weight loss motivators for Christy, who goes by CLH88888 around eDiets, was her looming college graduation. She refused to revisit the same fears that plagued her in high school. Instead, she vowed to achieve a healthy new lifestyle and a substantially lower weight before she strutted across stage. And she did it!

Christy Lost 145 Pounds But the process wasnt always a case of easy come, easy go. In fact, there were months when the number on the scale never budged. But instead of becoming consumed by the agony of defeat, Christy coped.

“I hit a bunch of plateaus where my weight didn’t move. I had one that lasted through February and March. I recently had one that lasted a couple of weeks, but I shook up my exercise some and I kept doing what I was doing. I knew it was the right thing to do and I stuck with it. Eventually, the scale caught up.”

When it comes to exercise, Christy doesn’t play around. She runs three or four miles a day in 40 to 45 minutes. Other days, she works out on her exercise bike. Top that off with three days of weight training and it’s easy to see where Christy gets her toned physique.

So what happened to the extra skin? It’s something that many people wonder, but are afraid to ask. Some dieters are under the impression that once you lose a drastic amount of weight, you’re left with excess amounts of flabby flesh, often referred to as an apron of skin. And of course, their first thought is surgery. But Christy says that wasn’t the case with her.

She attributes everything falling into place to a slow and steady loss and those bittersweet plateaus.

“The skin isn’t nearly as bad as I expected. It’s something I can live with and something I believe I can tone up over time. It’s definitely in certain areas, but it’s nothing to be ashamed of or anything like that. It’s nothing anybody should worry about."

“I now realize my plateaus were about everything adjusting. Without those, it might have been a problem.”

After almost two years on the program, Christy has healthy eating and exercise down to a science. However, even she has those days when it’s eDiets to the rescue. Whenever she feels like she needs some structure, Christy turns to the meal plan to get back on track. For the most part though, healthy eating habits have become ingrained. She concentrates on portion control and getting enough fruits, vegetables, whole grains and proteins.

Christy says she never thought about quitting -- because unlike other diets there was nothing to quit.

“It was more like this is something I do now. This is my life now. It’s not about deprivation. It’s about working in balanced meals or working in portion control or making better choices.”

Whenever she feels overwhelmed, Christy takes a step back and focuses on one aspect of the program, whether it’s healthy eating or exercise or emotional support. Having an entire community of like-minded dieters on her side has made all of the difference in the world for Christy, who says she probably couldn’t have done it alone.

“I needed all of these other people along with me. I knew they were all struggling or doing well the same way I was. I needed somewhere to go. I’ve been with my Ultimate Challenge Team since January 2001. I’ve also been participating in the Beat The Heat Challenge. I also post on lots of other boards.”

Despite her incredible weight loss success, Christy remains humble.

“This is something anybody can handle. I am no one special. Anybody can do this.”
