Default Lost half our weight

hi all!

My mother and I began our weight loss journeys a little over a year ago. She actually began her journey in September of '06, and I was inspired by her amazing success. Therefore, I began changing my life in March of 2007 as well.

It has been amazing to have my mom along on this journey with me; we were able to support each other all the way through!

As of today, we have both lost a little over half our body weights. My mom had a starting weight of 284 lbs, and she is now down to 135 lbs. I began at approximately 260 lbs, and I am now at 125.

Here are some "before" pictures of us:


My mom and niece (this was the month she began):


Me and my niece:


My mother was already a few months into her journey in this picture:


An "in-between" picture for both of us (I was about 195 lbs here, and my mom was about 185):


Another "in-between":


Here I am at about 140 lbs:




And here are some official "after" pictures:








Thanks everyone!

UNBELIEVABLE!!!! The two of you are so cute having done this together & GORGEOUS too.

I started my journey exactly when your mom did and I too have lose 1/2 my weight. I can't imagine what it would have been like to share it with someone. I'm so glad that you have each other. What an amazing supoort system you must be for one another.

You both look amazing and have totally and completely transformed your lives, I know it for sure. You look to be enjoying it, as well you should!!

You and mom both need to head over to our Maintainers Forum. What a wonderful addition you guys would be. I know you would benefit from it as well.

Wowza!! I had to keep scrolling up the page to compare the pictures! I kept thinking, "No way, that can't be the same people!!". I had to keep seeing the faces to realize that it was the same people. Congratulations to you both. That is so fantastic that you had someone to go through the journey with you.

You are one gorgeous young lady. I admire that you did something about your weight so young. It's never easy, but I know I couldn't do it at your age.
