So for most of my life, I've been obese. And let's not kid ourselves, morbidly obese. I was tired: physically, emotionally. I was unhappy with my appearance and hated being fat.
So this January I started my weight loss journey at 256.4 pounds, a size 24, and 'women's' size shirts.
Today I weighed in 145 pounds. I reached my goal!
Now I'm a size 12, and can wear most things off the rack. Yay!
