Default Down 70 Pounds! 226 to 156!

I had a really bad couple of years, and gained about 70 pounds--I can't believe it happened, but EVEN MORE--I can't believed what I have accomplished on my own! Aside from the weight, which is enough on it's own, I feel like I've also shed that bad time in my life. So, be proud of yourself, beautiful, strong, accomplished and committed women! The other day, I was talking about my weight loss and it brought me to tears. The person asked me what was making me sad, as though I was sad about what work I had left to do. I told her that I was crying tears of joy and pride at what I have done over the past year. With that in mind, I've got to finish this work I started.

I've finally got back down to close to my "central tendency" weight. Even though I'm still heavier than I've been in the past, I feel like I can finally see my body again when I'm wearing clothes (not that I don't have at least 30 pounds of improvement, even with clothes on, but I actually look average now).

Weight aside, I think my biggest goal is to love my body naked! I'm guessing that is somewhere between 20-30 pounds from now.

After the ramble.. here are some before/after pics. This is about a year of change. Hopefully I'll post some more "after" in a couple months!

Congratulations for doing what you've done, and for hanging in that it could take a long time, but it's worth it.

Enjoy your success and be strong for the rest of the goal.

Default Thank you!

Thank you for all your nice and encouraging words! This website is great for support and I am so happy I have found it.

The last few days have sucked, because I haven't lost a pound even though I'm doing everything right. I keep telling myself to believe in the process and wait it out.
