Default My Journey So Far - With Pictures

I have been thinking about making a progress thread for awhile but I didn't have courage to post the dreaded "before" pictures. I am starting to see some progress in my latest pictures so it feels like the right time to post a thread. My journey is divided into two periods. I have always been heavy, even as a child. My weight was at it's highest after having my son in 2002. It stayed high until 2006 when I managed to lose close to 40 pounds. I maintained around 200 for a couple years. This past year my weight crawled back up and I was 222 pounds when I bought my new scale in November 2009. This is when I decided to become serious about my weight. The decision was made after being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and learning I could not have back surgery for my damaged back. My surgeon told me my best chance at a more manageable pain level was to lose weight. I have been losing ever since and I don't plan to ever go back to my higher weight.

My plan is basically counting calories (1300 - 1600 range) and trying to exercise when my pain is not too severe. I am also more active overall than I was in the past. Here are my pictures:

My heaviest weight in 2002. I was about 245 - 250 pounds



After losing the first 40 pounds in 2006




I was 222 in November. This was just before my second attempt at weight loss:




Beginning of March. I had lost around 30 pounds. I found a pair of pants I wore at my heaviest weight.



45 pounds lost since November



46.5 pounds lost




I was about 160 here. This would be 62 pounds lost since November, and 90 pounds since my heaviest






102 pounds lost total!!

Here is my latest picture. I am 148 which makes 74 pounds lost since November. I am only 3 pounds short of my original goal! I have lost 102 pounds since my heaviest weight



UPDATE:
My at my original goal of 145! Only 10 more pound to lose, I'm not rushing though .

Thanks so much for the kind words. Looking at weight loss progress pictures has helped motivate me a lot through the whole process. I wanted to post mine with the hope that it may help even one person feel they can do it too.

Hopefully there will be another picture at my goal weight some time this year

((Hugs)) to everyone

Amanda
