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!
