I finally broke 200lbs!!!!

In the summer of 2011, I was well on my way to winning my last battle with weight loss. I had managed to get from 230lbs down to 190lbs and was super motivated to continue my journey. Then in December of 2010 I fell ill. Between medication, not being able to exercise and depression, at the end January 2011, I was back to 215lbs. By November of 2011, I weighed 230lbs... again!


I had gone on vacation and seen a picture of myself and all I could do was cry. I decided then to make a change!

It was a struggle at first, and for much of 2012 I yo-yo'ed between 220lbs and 210lbs.

However after joining my fitness pal about 2 weeks ago, this morning I got on the scale and finally, I BROKE 200!!!!!!!

199.8!!!! :happy:

It's not my goal as I am 5'9" and would really like to get down to 150lbs but I am just so happy I had to share!

Good luck with your journeys MFP community!
