Please be kind...I have NEVER posted my photos online and I still think I look unattractive. I'm working on accepting the way I look; in fact, I am hoping to start posting on dating sites now that I feel more confident. Friends and family members will tell me I look good, but I guess I still see the fat girl. Or I find fault with other things besides my weight. Hopefully I won't be totally rejected on dating sites. That would hurt!
Anyway, the first picture I'm posting is, sadly, not even my highest weight. It was about five months into the weight loss journey, so just add about 40 pounds and you'll have an idea of where I started. I started at about 331, so I was probably in the 290 range when this was taken.
The final two pictures are recent, in the past month, at somewhere between 173 and 175 pounds, which is where I am now. My goal is 164, so I'm close, but due to some health issues I need to maintain for a while. But only about 10 pounds to go...I can do that, right? But for now, I'm ok with where I am and want to focus on the future.
December 2011, 5 months into weight loss (imagine how I looked in July 2011!):
May 2012, around 225 lbs:
Easter Island, November 2012 (about 200 lbs):
Early this year, probably around 185 lbs:
And finally, within the past month and a half, hovering between 173 and 175:
