Here goes nothin'....

I have debated on whether or not I should share my "still in progress photos". I have gone back and forth about this for a couple of months now. I have read SO many wonderful and amazing stories. You have all done so well!!!! I figured I'd share mine for now. I won't go into my big long story because, well frankly, I am long winded and nobody wants to hear about it. LOL I will cut to the chase and say YOU can do it. I did it and I'm still going. SO many before me have done it and ARE doing it! Don't sell yourself short! Just because you screw up. You have that piece of cake or whatever it is and you're feeling guilty. GET OVER IT! Pick yourself back up and make a better choice for your next meal. Get your butt up and go for a walk/jog/run (or pull out the p90x and do what i do! LOL) Get moving! Don't let someone tell you that you can't. You show them that you can! This isn't for anyone else but you. You deserve to be happy and healthy. My working out and eating right? That's for me. I want to live long and be here for my children. I want to grow old with my husband. My family gets to enjoy the benefits from learning healthy habits and they get to enjoy a happier/healthier me! The first picture is me at my heaviest (304lbs), the second picture is of me and my husband about a week before he proposed to me (270lbs), and the final picture is my most recent of me and my husband together (185lbs). I still have 23 lbs I would LIKE to lose to get me to my goal of 160lbs. When I get there, I'll decide whether or not I feel good and healthy.

    23 pounds may be too much now

    First I want to say thank you all for your kind words! :heart:

    And unfortunately, 23lbs isn't even within my "healthy" range. I'm only 5'6" and 183lbs (as of Friday). My goal is to hit 160lbs and find out what my body fat percentage is and go from there. Technically though, 160lbs is still "overweight" according the BMI charts, but I will be happy there I think. :smile:
