Default down FIFTY! w/ pics

i cant believe ive lost 50 lbs. it took me 10 months, and a lot of horrible plateaus, but as of today i have lost 51 lbs. since my goal (for now) is 70 lbs, for me, i always felt like when i hit 50, it would stop being a "diet" and start being a real life change.

i have absolutely NO pics of myself at 220, but i think this is 205-ish. i gained a few after this.

today (excuse the no makeup and hair grossness)


the sad thing is, i dont see THAT much difference, lol, but i guess we are our own harshest critics.

thanks for all your help 3fc!!

Give it maybe 10 more lbs and you should notice a big difference. The same was true with me after my first 20. It didn't quite look like what I thought it would. But once I lost a few more, other people were actually noticing. It is weird how it happens that way. At first, they all kept commenting on my "new" hair. I had not done one thing different with my hair, LOL.

You look fantastic and keep up the good work!
