I didn't gain all of the weight back, but most of it. I started again in January at 194 lbs.

This picture is from last week, when I had a VERY early morning flight for a meeting in FL. I usually work from home, so up and dressed so early is a picture-worthy event for me. LOL


Oh wow you look great!!!! I love seeing everyone's transformations to their healthier self!

These are technically before/during pics. But I thought I would post because often times we don't feel successful until we reach that magic goal weight number. But no matter where you are in your journey...each day that you wake up and choose to be a healthier version of your former self, you are a success not matter what the scale says. Ultimately I have about 20lbs or so left to lose. I'll get there...eventually, lol!

You have been one of our superstar here at LCF! So yes, very interesting how you gained the 10. Maybe it is the bodies way of storing,knowing you are going to need it to work out.

Wow, wow, wow! What a transformation. It's funny how hard it is to "see" yourself when you look in the mirror everyday, but when you look at a photo of yourself it's eye opening. That has been my experience at least. You look fabulous! I love your dress and shoes in the last photo.

In addition to what the others said, I'd like to add that I love your style (dress, necklace, how it all compliments your skin/hair)... I know what you mean about finding it hard to feel successful when you haven't yet hit that magic number (or worse yet, have a bit of regain like me ) but really you look so healthy and proud in your more recent photo. Good job!
