Mini-Goals - Halfway to my goal and I can taste Onderland! PICS

Finally I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I am halfway to my goal (129). I started at 276 and I now weight 203 and Onderland is just around the corner! I am so freaking excited, I already weight less than I have in the last 4 years,possibly 5, I cannot be certain. Even though being in 100's was a mini goal I am keeping my eye on the prize because my ultimate goal is to be at a normal BMI and I know that I am soo close. Losing 73lbs in 7 months is huge for me...and I know I can lose 73 more in the next 7 months if I work hard like I have been. Here are a few pics of my journey.... The first three pics are of me all at the end(ish) of last year (2010) and how I pretty much looked until March 2011 (when I first began my journey) The 4th picture is of me in May 2011 (two months after I started my journey at 248lbs) and the last picture was earlier today at 203lbs.:carrot:

I can see an exotic mysteriousness in your face. It wasn't so noticeable when you were heavier. Keep up the hard work. It's all good, and it's all for you.

Such a big change..your skin is glowing. I was under impression, if you loose weight you lose the luster .

No not yet. I always switch up my workouts. I hike, do aerobic dancing, walk, jog, interval train, circuit train, swim, play tennis and practice marital arts from day to day. I stay busy and catch up with friends on recreational activities instead of dining out or bar hopping. :) (i am 23). I have been a vegan for 5 years and use to binge on baked breads and refined carbs....so my diet is basically a low carb vegan diet now and it has been working for me. I guess all in all...i just try really hard to avoid a plateau. :)

Yea being a vegan doesn't mean you'll lost weight. I would eat junk food all the time even if it meant leaving out animals products and managed to maintain 276lbs on a 5'3 frame. Now I eat a healthy diet and I am a huge advocate of the skinny b*tch lifestyle and work out like its my job. I like my results but it hasn't been easy...ive had to change my lifestyle completely.

Congratulations! You've obviously been working hard and it definitely shows!

It sounds like you are really changing up your exercise...I need to do that! I've been sticking mainly to my elliptical, because I hate to exercise in public at this point, and I've had great results so far, but I need to change it up a bit....
anyhoo, you look awesome! :D
