Hi all :D
I haven't been as active on this site this past summer, but I still lurk around and feel attached to everyone on here.
I always look at the goal photos, and am inspired by them. Everyone on here motivates me! So, I thought I'd post my own before and afters since it's been awhile. I re-started my diet/exercise plan in April/May of 2011 at 299 pounds, and currently I weight 151. My original goal has been moved back and back, for now I think it should be 140. If this thread belongs in mini-goals, feel free to move it Mods :D

anyway, through healthy eating and exercise I've been able to get down from a size 20/22 to a size 6/8. Here are a few pics:

Thanks all! I am hoping to really tone up and probably lose another 10 pounds before I truly call goal.

For those of you who asked, I just calorie counted and exercised for the last 3 years. some days I cheated, some days were on track. But, the main thing was even if I had a bad day, or a bad week, I kept going at it.

thanks all :D
Someone asked if I was on any plan--not necessarily. I calorie counted most of the time. I wasn't on a specific diet, I just controlled my portions and cut out soda (eventually). Also, I'm really active, I started walking a couple of times a week when I first started, and now I probably get some form of exercise about 4-6 times a week.


@BFR: haha thanks you really made me laugh out loud :D

That's an incredible amount of weight to lose. Congrats.

My hope is that the people that are on all of these crazy fad diets, supplements, and programs see what you've been able to accomplish with simply eating right and exercise. Very inspirational.

How long did you take you to get to your first goal of 151? My overall goal is 150.

thanks all.
Terra, I started in April/May of 2011 so it took about 2 years and 4 months to get to 151. Then, it took another 4-5 months to get to 135.

It depends on the person, but I've seen posters who have lost it faster, and some who have lost slower. The first 6 months, I wasn't really eating as clean as I could have, and I didn't lose much. It gets much harder when you are closer to goal. I was losing as much as 10 pounds when I was the 230+ pounds, while under 200 I struggled. Trust me, it goes by fast and you'll hit milestones along the way that will motivate you to keep going. For me, getting to 200 was a big deal, as was 150. While you could possibly reach your goal by next year, I wouldn't start with such a timeframe. Starting off with smaller goals helped me keep going. good luck!
