Mini-Goals - 90 pounds lost; 120 yet to go!

View Full Version : 90 pounds lost; 120 yet to go!

08-30-2009, 05:25 PM
Like a lot of us, I don't have a lot of pics of myself when I was at my heaviest, but I'm pretty sure the first pic here was from right around that time of weighing around 360.

The second pic is the most recent I have at the moment, which was about 15 pounds ago. I don't have a nice big mirror or someone else to snap a pic right now so it'll have to do. :lol:

Wow, why do I look so serious? :p *UPDATE* More recent pic here on page 3. (

Anyway, I've now lost ninety pounds (I waited a couple of days to make sure the number stuck before posting this). Woah. That just boggles my mind. Only ten more and it'll be a full one hundred. Five pounds after that will be the halfway point to my goal!

So it looks like I'm definitely on my way. :dizzy: When I started this thing I couldn't even fit into any jeans that Fashion Bug Plus carried, and now I'm sporting a 22. With any luck (and a lot more determination and hard work) I'm hoping to be out of plus sizes by the end of the year. :)

You look amazing!!!!!!

Thank you so much everyone!!! :hug: The majority of the weight was lost a few years back, so the fifteen or so pounds I've recently lost is just the icing on the cake, so to speak. Gah!!! Why am I talking about cake?! :dizzy: :lol:

But to get back on track here, this all feels so surreal. I'm so distanced now from that girl in the first pic that I hardly remember being her.

I feel fortunate that I don't see my old self as "disgusting" or a "blob;" I was simply a very unhappy woman that had a lot of learning ahead of her. Choosing to get healthier and lose weight back in '04-'05 was a way of snapping myself out of a deep depression; I only wish I'd have kept up with the program, but no time like the present to resume! :D

What are your secrets, you can tell me, I won't tell anyone!:o

I think the most important thing for me was totally giving up on soda. I'm totally done with it, even diet! You can take a peek at the beginning of my diet blog to get an idea of my overall plan and goals:

I've since expanded my menu, like today I had mini pizzas made out of whole wheat pita for lunch. :)

I only wish I'd have kept up with the program

Hey, going off of the program without gaining all the weight back is one heck of an accomplishment in itself! I always gain everything back and then some when I go off. You are doing great. Congratulations!

You are an inspiration!
