Default As the soccer announcers say....

GOALLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!

It's been a long 2.5 years. But in that time, I've lost 226 pounds bringing me to 119. I've been hovering from 118-119 for 2 weeks now and I think I'm going to call it.

Here was me at a wedding reception in August of 2008:


And this is from our Christmas card in 2009:


And here are a couple of pics from this morning:





Quite a difference, huh?

I can't believe how much my life has changed. In some ways I still feel fat and in others, I don't even remember what it was like to be fat. Exercise, eating right, and enjoying life is so part of my world now.

I have a little fear about entering maintenance, but I'm very hopeful that I have made this journey in a way that will allow it to be a life long change...

Congratulations CherryPie!

Maintenance is a little scary at first so be patient with yourself as you find what works for you.
