Mini-Goals - 51 lbs AND Onederland!!!!
11-10-2009, 10:52 PM
Well, I still have a ways to go before I'm ready to maintain, but I want to stop and share the progress I've made so far.
I've yo-yo'd with my weight for my entire life, and I am seriously DONE with it. Done. I will never EVER see that 2 in front of my weight again. When I went looking for "fat angie" pictures to post in this thread, it was crushing. I never realized just how bad things had gotten.
But now is now. I'm a different person and I have an entirely different outlook on my body, exercise, food, and my life than I ever have before. Here are a couple of before and after pics. (I apologize for the quality of the after pics...i still hide from cameras, so I didn't have much to choose from ;) )

Thanks for sharing your before and after pics. I need to make some time to upload some. You really inspired me!
Started at 352 pounds, I currently am close to busting under 300. I hate my before photos but not who I was or who I am. I've set myself a deadline for "new" photos. I have a measure up/weigh in session on November 24, right before Thanksgiving.
My personal trainer and I do this once per month around the 21st/22nd. This time will be my 25% mark toward my goal of losing 212 pounds and my "first 50 pounds lost" picture day.
I've promised myself to shoot every month or two so that I can really see the progress instead of just looking in the mirror and feeling disgusted with quadruple chins. I especially want pictures of me lifting Kettlebells to show how I get such great results and focus on my growing strength rather than just my shrinking size.

Fantastic! It's amazing how much of a difference that 50 lbs makes. I have a similar amount of weight to lose so that is very inspiring. Thanks.

Thank you ALL so much for every thing you've said!!! That's why I love it here...everyone is SO supportive of each other. You're all doing so well, too, and if I've inspired anyone on their weight loss journey, then it makes my journey all the more worth it!
