Mini-Goals - 87 lbs gone + 2 milestones = time for a photo!

Hello Everyone,

So 2 recent goals have given me the impetus to post a couple of pics.

1. I am now oficially overweight BMI

2. I have finally made it under the 200lb mark

I really hope to be back and posting some goal pics in December /January.

I started at the beginning of February, and this is the difficult bit from here on in, I know because I've done it before so, wish me luck everyone.

The Pictures are a littled bit skewed time wise, as I am actually now around 12 lbs lighter than I was in the one in the dress, but it's one of those flattering photos, so probably a pretty accurate portrayal of my size now.
First one is me in March around 275lbs
Then in May - on hols, 240 or so
Then in the cardigan from original photo about 8 weeks ago and 215lbs
Then now-ish 199

Thanks everyone - such nice words of encouragement, It's funny though how when you start to get reasonably slim, and start feeling better the tendency is to have less motivation to actually get to goal - this is what happened to me on previous attempts I think, so now I really have to work extra hard, and stay focused for those last 40 lbs or so.
Thanks again for all the kind words

Hey guys,

just wanted to post a proper thanks for everyone's nice encouragements.

It is amazing that I have now gotten to a point where my story can encourage others - I still can't quite believe it, but it has been a great help having this site to air the goals and frustrations, I think family and friends get pretty sick of listening to it all sometimes, especially as with a couple of friends I feel like I talk about nothing else, so thanks for listening!!

09-26-2009, 10:38 AM
Great job!!!

09-27-2009, 02:40 PM
