Hi everybody,

Here are my photos. One from Christmas, one from Saturday. Any feed back is greatly appreciated. (Hope I did this posting with pics correct.) There is about a 25-30 pound difference.

Hi guys, Thanks for all your kind words. I was really in need of them. It is so weird because I know I'm doing ok, but sometimes I loose track of that and worry about never getting to my goal. Silly I know, but thats how it goes.

aerotigergirl-Yes, my waist is beginning to reappear. Thanks

Ilene-Dont you just love double chins? I think I was closer to 3 chins, but they're slowly melting away. Thanks for the support.

Kate-I laughed my butt of at the daughter remark. It is nice that my sis and I are being recognized as sisters and not "are you guys related?" Thanks for bringing a smile to my face.

2LosinIt-I AM happier. I have so much more energy. I'm able to do what I need to do and still have energy to do fun things afterwards. Thank for your compliment.

tofat....you are going to have to change your name because it just does not suit you anymore!!! fat, what fat, i don't see no fat!!! girl you are looking great. what an awesome job you have done so far. i can't wait to get to where you are now. what an inspiration.

i'm so glad to hear you have so much more energy now. i feel the same way even though i have only lost about 20 pounds. i do have more energy. i can actually race with my 4 year old now when she wants to. but i still let her win.

congrats on all your hard work. keep up the good work.

Awsome, awsome difference! You look so great! I could really see a change in your face! How proud you must feel!
At what point did you look in the mirror and REALLY notice a difference? Was it after 10, 15, 20 lbs lost? I'm still in "the process" and haven't really noticed anything so I was just wondering when it happened to you?
Keep up the great work!

Lumi-its hard keeping up with kids even with the extra energy. I babysit my neice and nephew a lot and they can wear me out something terrible. It is fun to be able to play more actively with them! Thanks for the encouragement.

SoCal-I think we are our worst critics. I still have trouble seeing myself as thin. When I saw the pics from the weekend is when it REALLY sank in. I knew I was getting smaller cuz clothes kept getting smaller, but the photo really made me see better than the mirror. You're doing great on your loss. Almost 10 pounds!!! I hope you post us for that milestone. Congrats!

Thanks to all for the nice comments. Your so encouraging and have definetly solidified my resolve to keep working hard.
