Thanks! A lot of people actually tell me that. I guess it is because I am so tall... more room for the fat to distribute.. haha! :)

Excellent work!

It's fascinating how our faces change as we lose weight, it's like we can begin to finally see our true face underneath! Something I noticed in your before and after pic, also something I'm experiencing too.

Keep it up!

Thanks everyone! I have primarily lost it through calorie counting. I have been super strict and it has worked. I am now finding it is pretty hard to phase back in to living without the counting though so I am working with a nutritionist to get into a meal plan that is based more on food groups instead of calories. I have also walked some but that is the only exercise I have done. I have a bad back so unfortunately I can't do anything else. Just find a plan that works for you and stick with it. It is hard at first but it becomes old hat very soon. good luck to you all.

The one thing I would say is that it probably would have been a bit better if I would have been a little less rigid with everything. I have found it hard to mentally adjust to the rapid weight loss... Don't get me wrong, I am completely happy that I am no longer obese. However, having such a dramatic change so quickly can play some really big mind games...

Longtallbee - it is great to see someone else my height!! I'm glad to see our goals are similar. Mine is actually anywhere between 180 and 190... I will see when I get there. If you don't mind sharing, what size clothes are you in now and what do you anticipate you will wear at 180? I am very interested in seeing if I am totally off with my goals etc. Thanks!

I totally agree! It is weird to see my face re-emerging...

I know! I love seeing other tall people on here! I'm kind of just guessing at the 180. Usually I wear a 20 in pants and an XL in shirts, but 20s are getting baggy now. I managed to fit into an old pair of 18s that I had hidden away today! I'm hoping to be at a size 10 or 12 at 180, but I really have no clue how it will work out. (I know I would be beyond happy to be a 10!) I haven't been a size 10 since I was 12 and 5'9. ;) What are you thinking as far as sizing goes at 180? I guess it depends on body type as well.

Do you mind saying what size clothes you're at right now? You're at about 25 lbs less that me, and I get excited about buying smaller clothes. ;)

I am currently in a 16 pants (my legs would actually fit better in a 14 but my waist is a definite 16) and a 14/16, XL top. I am hoping to be in a 12 at 190 and if I decide to continue and get to 180 or a little lower, I am hoping to be in a 10. I think your goals are spot on :) Good luck!! Keep me updated on your progress. Us tall girls have to stick together.. haha!

You're doing so great, and you are already a huge motivation for me already!

I'll totally keep updated. It's hard, sometimes, to be so tall! You have to be up there to understand!
