I just got back from Vacation. I took a break from logging. I watched what I ate and make healthy choices.
I only wore my bathing suit for most of our last week. I love the boy shorts of my Tankini bottoms BTW. When dry they look like shorts. I went to put on regular shorts for the trip home and they were too big. I had to try on 2 more to find one that fit. Woo NSV
Starting again after being lazy and gaining back 40 of the 65 I lost in 2013. I know what needs to be done and am doing it. Starting back on track June 25, 2014.
This first photo here was taken around my highest weight, at 238 lbs, and the second photo is me now at 216 lbs, with 22 pounds gone. (: I'm so happy with my progress so far! I haven't been this small in ages.
p.s. sorry about the quality of the photos. hehe.

Lovely pics Underwater and AlligatorSky! And thanks to those who've commented.
Maybe it's a little silly to post here of all places, but I thought I'd post some progress photos of my pregnancy.
First, one of my old standby "before" photos, alongside one taken soon after I found out I was pregnant, but before I'd gained any weight from it. This was my lowest point of losing about 150 pounds!
And here I am at 2 months, 4 months, and 6 months pregnant. Oh, and the baby says hi.
So far I've gained ten pounds of maternity weight. It kind of cracks me up that my growing stomach feels "normal" to me! I wasn't smaller for long so I think it's going to be a shock to my system once I have the baby! Once the dust settles I'd like to work on losing about 60 more pounds.
Whew, I can't believe I'm putting this on the internet but the photos and stories from these boards have gotten me through some ROUGH days so it's probably about time to return the favor! I'm about halfway to my final goal.
This is my highest weight - I'm guessing it about 280 or 290. I ABSOLUTELY refused to get on the scale at that point so I don't know for sure. I do know I went to the Dr. a few months before this and was about 280 but I had gained between then and when this photo was taken.
I started Weight Watchers not long after this and but it only lasted a few weeks because I lost my job and was too depressed to even think about my weight.
This is a few days ago at a work event at about 215, 9 months after I really dedicated myself to making a change. I had lost about 20 of those 280-ish pounds after we moved to Denver and wanted to keep up that momentum so I joined Weight Watchers and here we are a total of about 70 pounds lost!

Right, so the first picture on the left is a picture of me back in November of 2010. This wasn't me at my highest, either. I had lost around 10 pounds, so I was around 294. I am trying to find some of me at my highest, but there aren't many as I stayed away from cameras. I always held my weight 'well' and knew the right angles to make me appear smaller. What is sad is that I am just 23 in these pictures. I'm 26 now and I cannot believe what great (and YOUNG!) years I threw away being overweight and insecure. It makes me quite sad, to be fair. On the right, this was me about three weeks ago (I've lost a bit more since then) at a place called Plas Teg. I'm around 218 there. I guess rather start late than never? I want to be 140/150 by the very end.

The last time I took a comparison picture I was down a little over 30lbs. Now, I am down a little over 40. You don't get to see my face because I made a dumb face at the camera, and this wasn't intended as a comparison pic, but the difference made me excited!.
