Default Start - 325... 2nd mini goal reached! 275!

Hi there, I started my weight loss journey for this, my final time (keeping fingers crossed that I can stick with that statement... lol), on Feb 5, 2012. I weighed 325 and could just feel that my body was about to surge larger. As I gained my weight, I would go up by 10-25 pounds at a jump, then stay at that weight for a while. May 18, 2012 I reached my 2nd goal of 275 pounds. I was so excited! Every time I think about it, even now, I wonder if I should be pinching myself. I told my family and friends about it on facebook (only about being 50 pounds down, not what my starting weight was) and they wanted to see pictures. Well I don't tend to take many, as many of you can understand, but I found one from last year. I was about 210-215 pounds at the time...

And here is one that I took after I reached this goal...
50 Pounds Down May 2012.jpg
I am in roughly the same location, wearing the same shirt in both, but significantly smaller jeans in the 2nd (size 26 vs 32) (o: When I compared the two photos I was honestly shocked at just how much I was now swimming in my old clothes. I simply had not recognized that. I am now in the process of altering what I can and getting rid of what I can't. I did some shopping at the thrift store and some of my new tops were a 1X (my old shirts were often a 6x). I was so overwhelmed that I burst into tears right there in the dressing room.

I have received such tremendous support from some of the folks here. Thank you all for creating such a positive environment!

Look at how loose that shirt is now! And your neck is so long now! You look amazing, I bet you must have felt great after seeing the before and after! You're a true inspiration, and you need to get a smaller shirt.

Thanks everyone! I got a few smaller shirts when I hit the thrift store I have so much farther to go that I really don't want to get too much, because hopefully I won't be able to wear them for long! I will try to get another pic this weekend and add that here (wait... is that really me getting excited about having a picture taken?!?)

Wow! 50 lbs. really does make a BIG difference. I was amazed how much smaller your hips were, and the face! I hope these photos keep you motivated, especially times you may feel like getting off your eating/exercise plan. You've got great MOMENTUM now. Keep it going! Congratulations! You inspire us all. Happy dance!
