Smile Forestroad's Goal Pics--45lbs gone

I don't have a particularly long goal story. I gained about 40lbs in college. After graduation (in 2007)I put about 15 of them off over a year, but began gaining back when I went on some medication (in fall/winter 08). After I acclimated to the meds, I started slowly losing again (spring 09), and then decided June 2009 was buckle down and lose weight month. I found 3fc and started calorie counting, weighing 160lbs. In the last 5 months, I have gone from 160lbs, size 12, to 135lbs, size 8, from a high weight of 180lbs, size 14 at my college graduation. From 160 to 145, the weight came off pretty quickly, over 5lbs/mo, but of course the last 10lbs took almost 3 months. Here are my pics:

Start Weight: 180lbs (bmi 30; May 2007)



Mini-Goal: 148 (normal bmi; July 2009)


Goal: 135lbs (October 2009)


There are some more goal photos and progress pics on my blog if anyone's interested! Thanks for all the wonderful support

Thanks; it worked for me not to think about it as on the wagon or off the wagon, but all as normal, balanced parts of one journey, as long as there is balance.
