Jaime, the easiest way is to "go advanced" at the bottom of your post. Look for the paperclip icon and that will allow you to upload a pic from your computer.

You were close Jamie, try adding an image tag is like this only without the spaces [ img ] in the front of the url and then [ /img ] at the end of it like this.

[ img] the url goes here [ /img]

I'm currently 276 (my goal is 220, started at 525) and this gray dress is a size 17 Mossimo dress from Target and the sweater over it is an xxl(20) from the normal misses section in Walmart, but it's gotten baggy in the middle and I gathered it behind me before the pic. I could fit into the xl now. The dress is very low cut, like very very low, so it gets a sweater over it and tights under it so no one can see my stuffs.... LOL


I have an estimated 40 lbs worth of skin that needs to be removed which is making me wear bigger sizes. Without the skin I could fit into the 14's from Lane Bryant. I have several pairs of the pants in both khaki and denim and I can pull them up over my butt and hips and shove my belly skin in them, but they are about 4" away from buttoning. You can tell that they would fit once the skin is gone. But when I was this weight before I was a size 28. It's a difference in muscle tone now.

Here's another pic in the same outfit.
The little bugger rarely will sit still for a pic


This was a couple weeks ago:


I've posted my pics before, but what the heck.... I might be full of myself but I never get tired of seeing them! LOL
My roommate gets annoyed that I take pics a lot, but I tell them if they lost 249 lbs they would be taking pics too! Besides people say that seeing my pics inspires them. So here they are again, if you're tired of seeing them, then don't look, Bah-Hum-Bug to you!

You look great CJ!!! Very inspiring!

I love your fall outfits too! I love the skirts and boots you're wearing. I'm not very comfortable in dresses yet, but I would love to wear stuff like that later on.

Keep up the good work girl!

CJ, you look amazing! I'm not sure what I'm more envious of though, your weight loss or that AMAZING fish tank behind you in one of the pictures. I have a fish tank, but it doesn't look nearly that good.

Thanks guys.

Seth, that was my old reef tank. It was 4 feet wide and I almost covered all of it up.....I have another picture of me in front of it and there's about 8" of fish tank on each side of me. Somehow I use to lug 5 gallon (about 50lbs) water buckets up a flight of stairs to my apartment to keep that tank going, even when I was 525 lbs.... I took my tanks down after my car accident when I couldn't keep up with them anymore and after moving 1,500 miles I'm currently tankless but about to get a new one.

CJ, I love your story. I love your dimples, I love your smile and I love that you continue to post your photos. My husband and I were just talking about before photos and when I commented how proud I am to post my heaviest photos because it shows me how hard I've worked so I know what you mean!

Keep posting them CJ! Your story is so impressive!

Very nice! It shows good in your face and shoulders! Good idea to pose in the same shirt for each stage. How much did you lose?

CJ, I've never read a story that has inspired me more than yours. Keep the good work up with your blog. I am a lot more willing to take the suggestions from someone who has been through the same type of weight loss struggles as I have. It's hard to take weight loss from a thin person who had never been obese. I love the pictures. Your smile will win over anyone you meet.

I need to catch up on my blog, I'm so behind!
And some other stuff too. Here's another pic though, I've been looking at it anytime I felt like I wanted a cookie. LOL

Wowsers, after seeing a couple of the guys on here I guess it's time to step up my game. I am still a little squishy around the middle and have spent a year whining about not having any luck getting rid of an extra 10 lbs or so below goal. No my crying, just need to shut up and do it!

One other comment...there are some really hot women on this board.

You know what...... After so many years of hearing horrible comments, if someone wants to call me hot then I'm not gonna be offended by that.

But.... if you start stalking me and show up at my gym, my work, my home or behind me in my car.... then that's not cool!

(I laugh about it, but it actually happened when I was barely 18. That was kind of a fear I had about losing weight and I'm smaller now then I was then. But I'm also stronger now and if some creep wants to mess with me they'll be in for some trouble.)

Missouri Librarian: You look amazing, I currently weigh 245lbs and I am wanting to get as close to 120lbs as I can before May 26 that is when my son graduates from high school and I want to look good in the photos. Can you give me an example of the different foods you ate to accomplish your weight loss and what types of exercise do you do? Thanks for your help.
