Goal Photo Album - Finally at GOAL: 135#s Lost!!

View Full Version : Finally at GOAL: 135#s Lost!!

02-23-2008, 10:33 PM
After what seemed to be a very long journey at times, I finally hit my goal weight (actually a little bit lower)! I was hoping to have THE perfect picture to post but this one will do for now. Please note that I really do have a left arm but it's around my Mom & I cropped her out. :p

Starting wt @ 284#s.....................Goal wt @ 149#s

Edited to add: Oops, I forgot to give a little info on what I did to get from before (check out that profile pic!!) to now. Some of you have seen me on the boards & heard my story, but for those who haven't: I began my diet on October 1, 2006 at 284#s & used Medifast to lose a big chunk of my weight. I went on a modified plan (lower carb/low cal/low fat) for a few months before & after my surgery last year then back to Medifast.

Most people on that plan lose a lot faster than I did, but I got there! Whatever plan you are on, remember to believe in yourself...you will get to goal too!

I added a little blurb at the bottom of my original post briefly explaining my diet. It took me ~16 months to lose 135#s. Time passed by quickly (well, ok...some days NOT!) & bit by bit my weight went down. :)

02-24-2008, 01:13 AM
Omgosh wonderful!!! You look so drastically different :D

Meg, I want to do a picture like you have in your avatar with my starting weight shorts. Both my Mom & I fit in them now (each in one leg opening). Maybe this spring when I drag out the summer clothes. I think it would be a really great after picture...just need to have DH visit w/me sometime so he can be the photographer!

See you over in Maintainers! :)

02-24-2008, 10:29 AM
Sue, I would love to see that picture! Hope you have a chance to do it soon. :carrot:
