    Holy crap lady... you're smoking hot now!!! It may have been an off day for you in the first pic, I don't know, but you look like a wall flower there and now you look vibrant and young! Way to go! You are seriously a huge inspiration for me right now. I'm 272.7 lbs right now and I can't even think of being as far in this journey as you are becuase it might scare me and throw me off my game. I wish I was there though, and had that self assurance in my eyes that you have in yours.

    HELLO!! We ALL have a cruddy picture of ourselves. Even ppl who have never gained a pound. That shot is just a bad angle.

    GREAT JOB on getting healthier!!!

    Oh, you guys are all so sweet. I know I have a way to go still -- 40 pounds at least, I'm sure. I've been kind of hovering only moving down from 200 to 195 the last few months and I just caught my 2nd wind last week to get going again. Recognizing the real change I've made already was a big part of getting my act back together to move on.

    I've been very overweight since I was a kid and the possibility of being a healthy weight has never seemed attainable to me as it does now.

    scarletjg -- I remember when I first joined MFP and saw people with 50lbs+ lost on their tickers. In the back of my mind I thought I'd probably never get that far but I so desperately wanted to succeed the way these other people on MFP had. If there are other people in this world, including many who have a lot more to overcome than I ever did, who can suck up their self pity, get with it, and succeed in their quest to become healthy then I have no good excuse not to follow suit. :smile:

    At the gym today, I watched a guy on TV who was missing both legs from the knee down succeed in completing a triathlon. Made my mind's stupid internal "This is hard" whining about doing intervals on the elliptical seem so petty. Talk about inspiration...

    Keep up the hard work and you'll get to where you want to be, but congratulations for what you've achieved so far!

    You are truely inspiring and not just to those who need to lose a lot of weight. I enjoy reading your posts and tracking your progress because you tell it like it is (no candy coating) and I can see the transformation both inside and out in both your pictures and your posts. Keep up the great work. Love your darker hair BTW :flowerforyou:

    First of all CONGRATS! You did such an awesome job! You should be SO PROUD!!! :flowerforyou:

    My best friend and I have this conversation all the time. We both have pictures from before (last summer for me, last winter for her)...and we look at those occasionally to see progress and comment on how much we've changed..Even looking pictures from only a few months ago, we see lots of change. We're both looking and feeling awesome (she's lost over 40lbs, I'm down 32lbs), and you're right, we're smiling much more and actually in pictures instead of behind the camera!
