Oh boy! A picture thread. And here I am one of those crazy weight loss gals who carries her before and after in her wallet and likes to whip them out everytime the subject comes up...or doesn't come up. Heck, I just like whipping them out. LOL!

I didn't really keep up with my progress, but here's the before, somewhere at or over 240 lbs, a picture from earlier this year at 170 lbs, and one from about a month ago at 151 lbs.

Now here's to just hoping I did the attachments right.

Thanks Lanaii. That's an added benefit of losing the weight, I dropped years along with it. I certainly feel younger. I was in my 20's in that first picture and I was always so tired after just getting in from work. Now I go to night classes twice a week and I'm always on the go when I get home from work, between exercise and a newfound joy of shopping. I used to absolutely hate shopping. LOL And I started going to a tanning bed for the first time in my life. I could never tan before and never saw the need of putting that large body into one of those little pancake machines. :lol:

You really do look great!! Isn't it fun to go shopping for clothes now that you have lost all that weight? Although I have lost close to 30 pounds nowand am at goal weight, I just LOVE to shop now for all the stylish clothes. Having gone from a size 12 to either an 8 or 6 depending on the outfit itself, I enjoy the "new me" sooo much more! The old confidence level sure goes up when the weight comes off, doesn't it?
Congrats again on all the weight loss, Heaven.
Have a great day-

Definately! I have more confidence and am more outgoing than I've ever been. People have commented on the change. And I certainly have a lot more energy. Just had a 19 yo intern at the office asking me how old my daughter was. When I told her 19, she said "No way! That's my age! You can't have a daughter that old." All I could say was "Bless you". LOL!

BTW, here's yesterday. I modeled my latest new outfit for hubby to take a pic. :D

My thoughts exactly, you look much younger! You are very inspiring to someone who wants to qualify for this maintainers forum like me! :)

Wow, all these amazing pictures have really inspired me SO much. Everyone looks so amazing, and really happy in their after pics!

I've been in a bit of a funk lately, my loss suddenly switched from 2/3/4 pounds a week to just one, which I know is ok, but it has been getting me down.

But your photos have shown that it can be done!! I hope you don't mind me sharing my pics, even though I'm not a maintainer yet!!

The first two are me on holiday in Greece last October, and I put on about 15 pounds after that trip, and the second two were me about two months ago - I've lost 12 pounds since they were taken.
