Thanks for the kind words. I just got self-conscious about having these pictures out here.

I'll ask to have this thread removed.

cheryl-you are beautiful! Good for you! Your pictures are great. Thank you so much for posting them. Each set of pictures that I see from everyone here gives me the idea that I can actually do this (especially on days where I feel like it's taking too long).

Instead of the media focusing on how many people can't lose weight, they should focus on all of these wonderful stories here to show that it can be done!

I am so happy for you!

you look GREAT!! Congrats!! and now you don't look like you've ever been any bigger - you look 'normal' :dizzy: (if you know what I mean)

we're the same height, I would love to look as trim as you if I could ever get lower than 150.

Wow - thank you for all of the love! It really means a lot to me. :hug:

VermontMom - Jeans are by INC. They have 2 cuts: regular & curvy. If you go the 'curvy' route, you'll need to buy down 1 size. I would normally consider myself a good candidate for that style, but I actually preferred the cut of the regulars. I also adore my Levi's 515's. GREAT cut - actually perfect for my body type (and much cheaper than the Inc jeans ;) ).

amylinstead - I did a program called Slimgenics (formerly Slim4Life). It isn't everywhere. I think they only have offices in MN, TX, CO and KS. I have also done Weight Watchers, but didn't keep the weight off and never got down to this weight (I stopped losing around 157 before my wedding in 2005). In hindsight, I would likely take a blended approach - weight watchers with higher protein. My problem with weight watchers was that I learned how to game the system. With Slimgenics it is pretty rigid, so you are either on the plan or you are not.

Thank you, again, for all of your kind words. I've really not shared my before/after pictures with anyone! I should print & put them up in my house to help me remember what I do NOT want to do to myself ever again.
