Default I've now lost 160lbs, and 76". WOOT!

I've been on this journey for almost a year now. It's been pretty tough, but not any tougher than hiding inside myself.




I started out at about a size 32/34 at 409lbs, now I'm a size 26 at 249lbs. WOOT! YEAH! I can buy clothes at the walmart!

Here's my new pictures: MY KNEES TOUCH!




I just want to say to people out there who are trying, and feel like it's hopeless, it's not. Go outside, even if at night, and walk a mile around your house! Or pace in the living room! Anything to keep moving, if you don't stop you'll get there eventually. Sometimes you will hit a brick wall, but just keep on going. That wall can't stay up forever. And you don't need surgery, or a fancy plan! If it comes in brightly colored packaging, don't eat it. If it's saltier than you are after walking, don't eat it. Love you all, I'm going to bed. Sorry if this was a ramble KEEP MOVING!

Wow, that is fantastic! Great job and thanks for the post. Some days I do feel less motivated, but posts like these always help me to see that what I'm trying to do is indeed possible.

You're right - it is encouraging to read your story. Thanks for sharing! I think the best part is that wonderful smile peeking up above those large-waisted jeans! I look forward to reading the rest of your story as it advanvces.

Wow, look at the difference in your measurements AND your pictures! Want to know what I noticed right off? In the first 2 pictures, part of your face is blacked out so we can't see your expression. But in the last picture, you are smiling, happy, and confident.

Congratulations on your amazing accomplishment. You will serve as an inspiration to many, many people who come here looking for hope!
