Default I've lost 113 (unlucky) pounds!

I've never posted before and after pictures anywhere before so I figured I might as well start now. No time like the present! I started at 298 pounds and now weigh 185. I've lost 113 pounds lost with 45 left to go. I can do it! I'm not an "after" yet but I sure do feel good as a "so far".

Before 1


Before 2


Now


Now


Shots 1 and 2 were taken at Niagara Falls in October of 2006. I started my journey to a healthier lifestyle in late November 2006 (about 18 months ago). I weighed 298 pounds at that time. I may have gone over 300 at one point or another but I guess I will never know for sure.

Shot 3 was taken a few weeks ago when I bought a new outfit and shoes for myself. I would guestimate that I weigh 190 in that picture.

Shot 4 was taken last week after I ran up the Rocky Steps in Philadelphia for the first time ever! Yeah!! 185 pounds and feeling great so far.

====================

Edit: August 14, 2008

I decided to include some "face" pictures where two of them include my boyfriend. He has been eating healthier and working out with me--we're both dedicated to getting healthy.

The first is from Summer 2006, right before I started to change my lifestyle. The second is summer 2007, one year in, and the third is from a few weeks ago.

Summer 2008


He's adorable and also doing very well.

Thank you! I was born a blonde and have been a blonde my entire life but I needed a change. My boyfriend loves it and my father hates it! Success!

Thanks ladies! Your support means a lot especially since I still have a ways to go yet.

Here's a better shot of the shoes. I love them! I bought them first and built the outfit around them.

He is very proud. He just prefers his "little girl" as a blonde in pigtails.
