Hello friends!!

Great news: as of today, I have essentially reached my weight-loss goals. YES!! When I started on MFP, I weighed 232 pounds. My highest weight (as far as I know) was right around 260 pounds. Today, I weigh 166 pounds. (And I seriously can't believe that I've lost nearly 100 pounds in total!!) I am 5'6'' and 27 years old. For workouts, I have a variety of Jillian Michaels DVDs, which I do 4-6 days/week. On the weekends, I love going for long, strenuous hikes. (I basically live in the North Cascades National Park... doesn't get much better than that!!) Below are a few pictures documenting my journey thus far.

Before MFP. 23 years old (picture taken in January of 2009). Around 260 pounds:

2 Weeks into MFP: 26 years old (picture taken in September of 2012). Around 225 pounds:

I am so happy and proud of my accomplishments. It's been a lot of hard work. And this journey has been completely imperfect. But I will never give up on myself!!
