Default 1 yr and 88lbs later... its pic time!

Hello Ladies! I have missed you all! Life has been total chaos and ended up severely neglecting my online pals. I'm back and Ive made some big changes but I need some motivation to keep going!

Things have been going really well since the last time I was on here. The last time that I posted I had made a challenge for myself to drastically change my life... and needless to say it has been a really crazy ride. I told myself right at about 1 year ago that no matter what I was going to post pictures of myself in a year. I have NEVER been able to take pictures without feeling horrible about myself so that was a goal that I thought might be some motivation for me.

Well, I haven't quite reached my goal weight but I am a lot smaller than I was before. I am back here because I need motivation to keep going. I don't want to settle for "better" when I know I could get to my version of "best"... So I'm going to post some pics! Honestly, I have only been able to find 1 "before" pic of myself... Like I said, I avoid cameras like the plague. But I did keep the pair of jeans which about 9 months ago were the ONLY ones I had that fit.

I feel like I have hit a bit of a plateau and I'm not sure how to get past it... Any advice on kinda kicking myself into gear? Im so close to what my doc and I have decided is my goal weight... I don't want to give up now.

Here are the stats and here are the pics!

Before- 278lbs. Size 18-20

and here were my size 20 jeans that barely buttoned...

Excellent progress!! You look fantastic!

What sort of plan are you doing? Maybe we can help with the plateau. They're very common, even after success such as yours, but you can get through it!

Holy smokes! You look stunning!

You've made such incredible progress in such a short amount of time, so I know you can beat this plateau! What kind of diet plan are you on?
