I just hit 198 and it's such a great feeling. I do Zumba for 1 hour everyday and watch what I eat. Like no sugary drinks, and no bread or rice.
My next mini goal is 175lbs. I have about 25 to go then it's all towards my goal of 160.
It's probably to soon to say but I might just go for 150. Keep in mind I'm 5'10" with a BMI of 28.4.

The first two pics are of me at 225!! Then the last 3 are of me at 198.

I've always been overweight but I'm finally doing something about it for myself.
I was always told growing up, "you'd be so pretty if you lost weight" over and over. It was very tough and it really screwed up my self esteem :( Luckily I found a great man who loves me for exactly how I am. He tells me I don't have to loose an ounce. He makes me feel beautiful :hug:

Loosing this weight has been so rewarding because I'm doing it for myself. Not for my family or my friends. Just for my own reasons. I want to get healthier and be able to rock my first bikini by next summer 2014 :cool:

AND yes that is Rob Schneider the actor with me in the second pic,

I too hope to rock my first bikini by next summer... or at least a nice one-piece that I don't feel the need to cover in a baggy shirt (I do that all the time!)! :) And however did you manage to get to meet Rob Schneider?

You look so great in those pictures! Congratulations on your weight loss far, and good luck in what still lies ahead! :D

I've always loved looking at progress photos, they totally help me stay motivated. I didn't realize there was a difference in the way I looked until I compared these pics :P

Hiya!
Congratulations- you look fabulous. (Although you have always been very pretty.) I'll be keeping an eye on this story as you're the same height as me, and you're aiming to loose a similar amount (I'm trying to loose 63lbs) . Best of luck with the rest of your journey- you can do it!!!

loriherdz - You are absolutely beautiful!!! Good for you for realizing that this is something you have to do just for you and congrats on finding a guy that likes you just the way you are. Sounds like you have your "head in the game" and you are so going to rock that bikini! Looking forward to seeing more progress. I finally took some pictures of the "before" and I'm looking forward to posting some "after"! Good luck to you with your transformation!!
