:wave: hi Jen! I don't think you look your weight in the heavy picture...you carry it well. Keep looking at those pictures for motivation and you'll get there.

I was thinking there was no way you were over 300 pounds in your before pic, you didn't look like it.

You look fantastic, goth makeup and all :) And you are very tall - you should be a model.

I have been very blessed with a kinda-well-proportioned body--- and being 6'1" definitely helps!!! Unfortunately, that "you carry it well" excuse has led me to the size I am today. That's why I don't tell anyone my weight (besides on here) b/c people are so awed by numbers and not what they see. I wear a size 22 pants (and even some 20's) yet I tipped the scales at over 300 pounds.

People don't realize that I'm tall and broad--- all those long bones have to weigh something, hello! :) So, even when I was down to a 14 at my lowest weight, I was still over 200 pounds, a number most people balk at!

It just goes to show that a weight, a number, a # sign means nothing. It's how you look and feel. I looked awesome at 215 and felt awesome and was healthy and in the best shape of my life. I could jog 3 miles in 30 minutes several days a week. I was happy. And I was over 200 pounds. So many people complimented me on the change--- they didn't need to know the number, they just needed to know that they thought I looked excellent!

Sometimes I wonder about the whole "model" thing... my sister is SKINNY and she is the one who turns heads everwhere she goes. I can't imagine being even thinner than 215 and going out with her--- this tall, broad, sexy lady finally turning some heads of her own! :)

ahhhhhh to dream! :lol:

I don't think that should be a dream at all! You are gorgeous, of course you're going to turn heads. Just watch out, your sister may have some jealousy issues with you stepping into her territory :) I totally believe you'll be turning heads...even now I bet you turn more than you realize.

Healthy Mama

Congrats on your loss so far. You are beautiful! You really look smokin' in your "before/goal" photo. You are right, the number on the scale is just a number.
