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:
