Goal Photo Album - From one red dress to another (see pics to understand!)

**2014 UPDATE: Many people have asked me in private messages or in comments on this thread about various tips as to how I did it. I've done my best to respond, but I think my comments have gotten lost in all the INCREDIBLE comments. For this reason, I am starting a blog and Facebook page to provide daily motivation and tips. Its in a very rudimentary stage right now, but once I know I have an audience I will be putting much more effort into it. 3FC was huge for me in getting to my goal and I'd love to pay it forward! Check out my blog at http://fromonereddresstoanother.wordpress.com and you can access my Facebook page from there. As I'm more familiar with Facebook, it will likely be the medium I establish most. Best regards everyone!***

In the first two pics I was at about 198, now I am around 130 :)

You do look fantastic. How did you know when you were at goal? Did you ever plateau? I am trying to figure out how much more weight to lose because I am naturally curvy and my weight is portioned out differently than a lot of people...did you find that your body just eventually stopped or did you have a number in mind?? again, you couldn't look better. WAY TO GO!!

Thank you all for the incredibly touching compliments. It really is rewarding to know I worked that hard and it paid off.

Honestly, it took me a while because I would gain back what I lost a lot of times (for example, when I was a freshman in college I gained about twenty back). I would say its been about three years.

I found that my body got used to any one method so I would switch things up whenever I started to plateau. I have done weight watchers off and on. I feel like when I did just that, I was losing numbers on the scale but the clothing didn't feel much different.
Then I tried just "kind of" watching what I ate and working out with a trainer. The numbers didn't change much but clothes felt different.
Sooooo lol.... long story short, after experimenting, I found out what works best for my body which is meals that are lean meats and GOOD carbs. I work out about 2-5 (depending how busy I am) days a week- doing both cardio and strength training.

In short, weight loss is always about the combo of exercise and eating right. However, I think it is important to find what works right for you. If you find you start to plateau doing that, maybe switch it up for a period of time and then return to what was working for you?

Congrats to all of you that have reached goal- and you CAN DO IT to all those that have not yet.

Thank you so much everyone, your compliments are incredibly heart-warming.
My weight loss journey took a while, so i think my best tip would be: no matter how long it takes KEEP DOING IT. Some of us have more lbs to lose than others, but no task is impossible.
Say you set a goal to lose "X" pounds by "Y" event and that doesn't happen. Its natural to be discouraged and want to say that its never going to happen. But, you have YOUR WHOLE LIFE AHEAD OF YOU. So, have your pity party for a bit that you didn't reach that goal, and then get right back on that horse. Who cares how long it takes, because with each pound you lose- that is one step in the right direction towards being healthier, and not in the wrong direction.

I'm new to the site but you look sooo amazing I just had to post! Plus, I'm Iranian and we actually look fairly similar, so you're helping me to imagine my own "after" pictures!

I was wondering, what sort of plan did you follow generally? Like, did you feel something specific you did helped you a lot? Basically, you just look really fit and toned and that's my biggest concern. I'm 23 and I would like to get down to about 130 but I am scared to death that I'm going to be all saggy when I get there. My boobs and stomach are what I'm worried about most (and not to be all creepy but your boobs look quite awesome). So I don't know if you ever had any problems with loose skin along the way, but I would appreciate any advice!

Hey Juliana- As far as what I did to lose the weight, honestly I tried just about everything but I think either weight watchers (which I did a little bit) or just watching calories in vs. calories out (majority of what I did) would be the way to go. Luckily, at our ages, our skin is still pretty elastic so depending on how much you have to lose, you should be fine. But always remember, its not just about a clean diet and cardio- WEIGHT TRAIN!
If you just lose weight via clean diet, you become what some people call "skinny fat" whereas if you build that muscle you will burn fat faster and perhaps weight slightly higher than your goal weight but look a lot less than that number.

As far as my boobs, lol they're fake. I was born with a condition, which with all the extra weight never was really noticeable, but once I lost the weight the tubular breast became really apparent- so I opted for a boob job.
Honestly though, sagging in the breast and decreasing cup size with weight loss is almost inevitable, but be sure to do pec exercises which will help with the sagging and building the pec up underneath will help a bit with giving the illusion of a bigger breasts.
