Default ONEDERLAND!! 115 pounds lost :)

Hey everyone. Long story short -- I started my weight loss journey in 2009 at 310 pounds. I got down to 210 in about a year, and then fell off the wagon hardcore. Tried losing again, but got pregnant and had to hold off for a bit. Finally got back on track in June at 250 and at the age of 32.

And now almost exactly 3 months later I am down 54 pounds (114 pounds overall) and am officially in ONEDERLAND!!! I haven't seen a 1 in front of my weight on the scale in so long I have forgot! I am currently a size 14 misses and wear a L in clothes. It is so weird not to shop in the plus size section. It is sad, but I honestly can't tell a difference in my body when I look in the mirror. The only difference I can tell is that my clothes are smaller. I think it is a mind set and I am trying to overcome it. I know my body has changed -- The photo of me at 310, pulling my shirt down was my life for so long. I was ALWAYS pulling my shirts down as they slid up my rolls. Not so much anymore

The single photo of my back in the blue sweatshirt was the photo that made me start my journey. Seeing all those rolls in the photo made me literally cry. I was a size 24, but in my mind I just didn't seem that big. The photo collages are from the first time I lost weight, but I thought they provided a nice comparison point. The single photo of me in the Nirvana shirt is me at 250 about 4 months ago, and the last 3 are me as of today at 196!

I tried to keep this fairly short and not bore you all with the details. It has been a long hard journey and one I am still working on, especially the mental part. 199 used to be my final goal. It seemed so far away, that I thought it was kind of a dream. Even just 3 months ago at 250 it seemed a dream. (And yes I know I lost weight fast, but it was not intentional. I did not starve myself, and my milk supply for nursing has been great so I know I am getting enough calories. I eat healthy, take my vitamins and drink lots of water. It was not my goal to lost weight this fast, but on the other hand, I am not complaining!) Now that I am at my goal, I am forging forward and going for 174 as my new final goal.

Congratulations, you look great! I enjoyed your story because I am restarting now at about your starting weight, and you fell off the wagon and successfully pulled yourself up and kept going. You give me hope that I can do it too.
