I did it!! I’ve reached my “goal” – to get down to 150 lbs! Ever since I can remember, that number was my “magic” number – when I thought I’d never lose weight, never be “normal”, that if only I could get down to that number, everything would be fine… I’m there!!
I was always “plus size”, even in middle school/high school. It wasn’t until I got to college that I realized it was a big problem that started to affect my health: I couldn’t even walk across campus without sweating and huffing and puffing! I started losing weight after my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004 and am still working on maintaining and toning, every day. But as of now, my mom beat breast cancer, and I’ve gone from a size 22 to a size 8 (over 100 lbs lost so far)!
So here’s my before pic (and my most recent after photo), to keep myself accountable for the next part of my journey – the part that takes me down the aisle and into wedded bliss at my healthiest and happiest!
Anyone else want to share their success stories and photos?
