Ok , i'm posting some pics although i am scared, i want to be accountable as well.

First off i'm a man (obvious, i hope), i also hope you ladies don't hold that against me.

Believe it or not i don't have many shots of myself (ugly), my mother had this one and it was taken without my knowledge, this was after some 40 or 50 pound loss even, embarrassment /shame at how i had given up comes to mind.

The next shot i just took, tried to make myself as presentable as possible, even dug into my closet and pulled out my leather jacket i haven't worn for what seems like a lifetime.

Sorry for the poor quality, not really into sharing but i was so inspired by a lot of you girls i feel a need to give back in some form.

To anyone who thinks they can't do it, i'm living proof you can turn yourself around, "we all can" you just need to believe in yourself and put your goal before all else.

I can't wait to finish my journey and make a better life for myself now.

Thankyou for the kind words, i do feel as though that person has perished and i have risen from the ashes, i'm contemplating a tattoo to celebrate when i hit my goal. A phoenix... we'll see. :)

You would'nt believe the dust that had accumulated on it, i blew on it and there was a small cloud. LOL

Thankyou, i'm no different than anyone else though, everyone of us has it in them to do something. :)

I'm trying... it sometimes feels like there are 2 entities in me, with the person i want to be trapped and desperately fighting for control.

My dad says my face looked like it was going to explode, my Mom forever worried about my health wells up with tears as she cups my face when i see her, horrible that i made her worry so.

Huge difference. You are doing great. Keep up the good work!


Thankyou, it's not easy as you probably know, but with determination and a little strength of spirit we can all make ourselves happy. ;)

Wow! What success :D Your hard work is obviously paying off. Not only are you thinner, but you look happier and like you have more energy. I wish you the best on the rest of your weight loss journey; I'm without a doubt that you will succeed.

More energy and happier don't even come close to how i feel, i honestly feel as good or better than i can ever remember feeling.

You are right that i will never let this go, it would take an act of God to stop me. :)

Not that i think i can inspire anyone but people need to know it isn't impossible to make changes and it's truly only about small steps and just takes winning the battle one day at a time. Something i realized from reading all those who contributed before me.

I'm amazed at how much you've lost, and am humbled by what an exceptional accomplishment that truly is. Until I began my own attempt to lose weight I never understood just how much determination it takes to lose even 20 pounds, and to see your loss is really inspiring. Your screen name fits your attitude perfectly.

Congratulations on seeing all your hard work really pay off. And... I don't want it to go to your head or anything ;) but it's worth repeating... you look fantastic. :)

Thankyou for the nice compliment, yeah even i don't know where i found the strength, i guess i just wanted to prove to myself that i could do something positive, i put all my trust into the plan i came up with, still it has been very emotional for me, much more mentally draining than physically challenging for sure, you really need to have your head in the game.
