Default 8 lbs to go--PICS!

I was feeling really bloated today, even after a good workout, and I still have almost 700 calories for the day. Just one of those days I guess. I only have 8.2 pounds to go, so I decided to do a side by side comparison pic. I am SO proud of how far I've come!

ETA: Adding a couple more pictures!

Wow, fantastic job, being a guy... you are looking really good, yep you are.

You should be proud, something a lot of people can't find it in them to do, commitment and strength. Now pride

Just in case you were curious, yes i understand how strong you are intimately.

From Nov '09 to Aug '10, I lost 60 pounds, going from 263 to 203. Then, right before I hit Onederland, I found out I was pregnant with our 3rd child--a wonderful but unexpected surprise! I regained almost all of the 60 pounds with the pregnancy. He was born April 2011 , and after 6 weeks, I started walking and watching calories a little. I started counting calories seriously in the middle of July 2011. My weight at that point in mid-July was 237. I'm currently (beginning of May 2012) 143.
