Here goes nothin' Before & After Juddd <gulp>

Alright, since it's my 1 year Judddiversary and folks have asked, here we go. This makes me super uncomfortable, but I am posting these in the hope that it gives some sort of HOPE to people that don't feel they have it in them any more to try yet one more diet. I was there. I gained & lost the same 70+ pounds over and over again & finally got to the point that I was just giving up. Why keep trying over when I'd just get mad & regain everything anyways? Well, Juddd saved my life last year. This before picture was only 1 year go. Fall of 2012. I have my "before" weight stat as 190, but I know I was over 200# at my doc's office. Looking at this picture says it all. <gulp> The after picture is today at 123. Seriously people, YOU CAN DO THIS!

Wow! What an amazing transformation! You give me hope! We were probably similar weights to start with, I was probably heavier, but I see my body shape in yours and your today pic looks amazing! Has it taken the full year to get down to your current weight or have you been maintaining for a while?

Well done!

Thanks guys. I get super anxious and feel my heart race whenever I look at any "before" pictures of me now. (there aren't many, but YKWIM) I just feel so much better physically & emotionally now. The thought of not being able to maintain and going back to that makes me really sick feeling.

lucky, I called "goal" at 135 back in early July. I have inched down slowly to 123 up/down since that time. I am a bit "looser" now with my UD cals, but do still try to keep my DD cals pretty low as much as possible. You can do it!!!!

1850/350 are the numbers I've pretty much started with, and have stayed with. I often was lower than my DD numbers, though...but stuck by my UD numbers religiously when in WLM. Hope that helps! (and you can do it!)

Thanks sweet friends. I honestly didn't feel that big...but yet I did? Hard to describe. Looking at the picture, though, I clearly WAS. oy

That is AHMAZING!!! I always knew that you had made an awesome transformation, but the pictures really show it!! You look so much younger, and wow, so tiny!! You weren't that big before, and you're beautiful no matter what, but you look fantastic now! Thank you for sharing, and I know how hard it was. I'll be next.
