    Hello! I'm 44. I'm 5'3" tall. In August of 2015 I topped out at 307lbs. I was in 4x, 30/32. It's been a battle and a roller coaster. At my low I was 143lbs. I've had a lot of skin removed, almost died from post-operative infections, ended up regaining. Yadda yadda. Today, I'm back to 156. I want to get down to 140lbs. At 143, I was too thin, because that was before the skin removal, so it was really more like 129lbs.

    I don't have photos on my work computer, but there are some in my profile, but you have to be a friend. My hair is much different now, and I look a lot different now...

    I started in January of 2017 at 260 lbs and I am 5'5.5". I lost 100+ lbs in 8 months and 4 days by changing what/how much I ate and moving more. I have been maintaining since September 16th, 2017 and done great with that. That is more than 15 months in maintenance. I just have decided to drop a little more weight.

    Sure there is some loose skin, but it is NOTHING like I imagined it would be. I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat. Actually, I wish I had done it YEARS AGO!! I avoided photos like the plague. I wore baggy clothes to hide in.

    Btw, I am 45 years old.

    Hi Pam. I totally agree with you. I'm 43 and I need to lose a total of 60lbs. Seeing and reading these stories I know I can do it and so can you. 😉

    Before: 209 lbs. After: 166 lbs.
    Started out obese, living a completely sedentary lifestyle. Over 10 months lost 43 lbs and started exercising regularly for the first time in my life. I was able to reverse the health conditions that were occurring as a direct result of obesity and found my passion which is trail running! No special diet, just ate less of whatever food I wanted, I even eat fast food quite a few times per week, I just make better choices than I used to. All the “after” pics are from this past year, I am 44 years old and have maintained my goal weight for the past 5 years. If I can do it, truly anyone can, it’s never too late to start!
