S/C/G: size 18 to 8...75 pounds gone

Height: 5'6"

Default Down 72 pounds (Size 18 to 8)

Here is my starting picture from July 2010 at size 18
Second picture is from April of 2011 (goal weight)
final picture is summer 2011 (maintaining...toning up)
Update, I maintained most of loss for 12 months, but over course of next 18 months gained about 10-12 pounds.

Then over last 10 months (so total of 3.5 years in maintenance), I put on 20 more pounds.

last picture is me after 3 years in maintenance...found myself up 35 of the 80 I lost, but no despair....after a 9 week reboot down 27 of those pounds....new picture to post soon (today's date 12/10/14)

The diet was my 40th birthday present to myself. I started a couple weeks after I turned 40 and I feel about 30 now.....moving and doing are much easier than 72 pounds ago.
