S/C/G: 286/157 (briefly) 170-180ish

Height: 5"9

Default 87 lbs gone + 2 milestones = time for a photo!

Hello Everyone,

So 2 recent goals have given me the impetus to post a couple of pics.

1. I am now oficially overweight BMI

2. I have finally made it under the 200lb mark

I really hope to be back and posting some goal pics in December /January.

I started at the beginning of February, and this is the difficult bit from here on in, I know because I've done it before so, wish me luck everyone.

The Pictures are a littled bit skewed time wise, as I am actually now around 12 lbs lighter than I was in the one in the dress, but it's one of those flattering photos, so probably a pretty accurate portrayal of my size now.
First one is me in March around 275lbs
Then in May - on hols, 240 or so
Then in the cardigan from original photo about 8 weeks ago and 215lbs
Then now-ish 199
Journey down the scales (this time) started 1st February 2009 - 128lbs Lost!

My Goal Story & Pics:

Woohoo, onederland!!! You look awesome!!! And, wow look at the difference in the cardigan pics, and that was 16 pounds ago! Way to go and great motivation!
(I think you made a typo for your weights though, unless you are trying to go up in weight, lol).

Amazing. That last photo looks like more of a loss from the previous than just 16 lbs!

Way to go, though!
