So it's official. Went to the doctor today because I've been having a lot of random chest pain. He is fairly certain I am not dying, but instead have been having panic attacks. That is way better. And to ADD to that, I got weighed, and I am now officially 160 pounds! Mostly due, after I stopped going on here that much, to the grad student diet while I was visiting my boyfriend.

Starting weight: 206
Weight now: 160


Okay, so it's not a huge goal to meet compared to what other people around here have lost, but I feel good about it. It's not even a healthy weight- but it was the weight I thought I could get to way back in the day three years ago, and I kept the goal just to see if I could make it. Now I suppose I'll have to make a new one, but I'm basking in the glory for a while.

Old me! Note that I have approximately no photos of fat me because I did not like them. I believe these photos are of me at 190ish.

In both, I am the one with the short brown hair. Magenta very baggy pants in second, green dress in first.

Anyway, even though I did kind of abandon you guys you really got me on the right track and kept me there, and gave me the advice and encouragement I needed to keep at it, even when I was whiny. So thanks, all of you. :hug:

Looking good.
What I like most about your Goal photos is the smiles on your face - means you not only look good but feel good.

Awesome job! It's not easy, but you did it :)

I think like that sometimes too, that because I have less to lose I don't have much to brag about it. Then I think wait a sec, just doing it no matter how long the journey is a huge thing in it's own. You still lost 46 pounds and that's awesome! (I only have about 54 to lose but still got a bit to go!)

You did it, even if it was just 15 pounds it's still something, congratulations!
