WOW! A picture says 1000 words, FOR SURE! Amazing journey and congratulations to you. Me, I have my Texas driver's license to remind me how big I had gotten. It was taken at my highest weight 10 years ago. I need that constant reminder to see what I've lost. Thanks for sharing with us. Such stories in pics mean so much to people just starting out.

Thanks a million! I have always gained the weight in my face, neck, belly, and upper body!! Last year, I would stop at a fast food place on my way home (chicken strips and a regular coke was my favorite) and then come home and eat dinner-isn't that sickening??? Food was definitely an addition.

I will type part of my journal entry for the day of my "turning point".........

April 10, 2011 Sunday
Feeling fat-no, huge!! Hit rock bottom today. First day of "hot weather". We took the dog for a walk. I put on a sweater vest over a black t-shirt to hide my huge-#%*s stomach. Took it off at park-too hot!! I was miserable because I was worried about how fat I looked. Everybody looked so happy to be out in the sun and it was the most miserable day ever!!! I look so sloppy! Hate feeling this way. Can't wear layers all summer-I have to stay focused on what I want! 199 on the scale today.



Thought you would get a kick out of that! Journaling has proven to be very beneficial because when I reread my entries, I remember how I felt at the time.

wow! I think its so great that you can look back at that entry...I can relate to the being ashamed of the way I look or felt and being jealous of people looking so free in the summer time. Thanks for posting that old entry.

Huge difference! I think that picture is terribly unflattering of you, all weir aside, but you have made amazing progress since then. Bravo!

Kathy; wow. could you give us your stats. were you 199 in last years picutre and are you 150 in the current picutre? a loss of 50 lbs? You are such an inspiration to all of us-that success can be achieved.

I can never visualize myself accurately as I really am-at over 200 lbs- nor how I want to be at 133.

I was down to 157 in my avatar pic (-40 pounds). I did go down to 151 in December. So, I had lost almost 50 but in another thread--"Getting it back together", I wrote about gaining some back and what caused it. I am on my way back down to 150-had to stop eating carbs-they were destroying my health again. I had to change my stats because I want to be honest about my recent gain. Back on track because of my Low Carb Friends!

Thank you! I didn't post this yet--

I am 5 feet 6 inches tall. I added the most recent pictures of me at 165. That is when I really notice a change, well, from 199 that is!!! So, you can even see the difference from 165 in these pics to 157 lbs. in my avatar!!!

Ditto what all the others have said Kathy. A lot of hard work but worth all of it. I just hope to get there someday. You are going to have such a good summer, maybe make up for some of the really bad ones that were so hard on you. Keep on keeping on, doing what you have done to get it off !!!

WOW

I wonder why we look so different. We turn our faces to look the best in a picture. I have sat at my computer in the past and taken picture after picture until I got one just right. Well right the way I wanted it to look!

Kathy you are doing sooooo wonderfully GREAT
