Here are a couple of pictures of me; the first at 313 pounds, the second about 75 pounds lighter. I can tell a difference, but I am still waaay too critical of myself! :p But I would say it's an improvement! :)

Thanks for the compliments... it is weird to see the results right there in front of me, because sometimes when I look in the mirror, I don't see that much of a change, you know. I don't know if I had a skewed vision of myself then or if I have a skewed vision of myself right now. Probably a combination of both...

Dana, when I started losing weight, I was a tight size 26 (ack!). Now, I am comfortably wearing size 18 pants (some are getting too big!) & my shirts/dresses are either a size 18 or 20. Ticks me off that my chest is so big that I have to buy a size bigger, but oh, well. I'm just happy that I can buy my jeans at Old Navy now, because I love they way they fit! :D

You know, I've lost weight before (about 5 years ago) & I've noticed that I'm losing it "differently" this time. Has anyone else that has lost weight before experiencing this, or am I just a freak?! :joker:

Yes! I am experiencing the same thing, Kayla. My body has definitely changed. Also, when I gained this weight this time, I gained it differently. It's settled around different, odd places.

Ahh, a woman's body and the changes it goes through. . .

Kayla!!! WOW girl!! You look great!!! I was just thinking that you should post some before and afters. Too wierd.

You are so pretty too! I hope you know how prous I am of you!!!!

It is cool to me that we started with the same stats, I started at 313 and was a tight size 26 jeans. I bet we are the same height too. I am 5'8. You are inspiring be because I now know if I lose another 20 pounds I will be an 18 too! (I am currently a 20) I am at 249 now. I need to catch up with you! ;)
keep up the good work and dont forget how great you look!!

You are so pretty, both in the before and after. Looking really hot in the after actually. Youve done a great job and I bet your body thanks you not having to cart all the extra weight around. Well done Kayla :D

I agree, Kayla, you're pretty in both pictures but positively glowing in the after. And you should be - glowing with pride.
