100 pounds down (with pics!)

Hi everyone!! I'm delighted to be able to post here again. I posted after I'd lost 50 pounds, so it only seems appropriate that I post again now that I've lost 100. Pretty straightforward story: started losing last August when I graduated high school, moved out, and got my own apartment. My highest weight was 321 and I'm at 221 now! I count calories, do cardio...I'll admit that it has not been easy at all, between dieting and dealing with the stresses of my freshman year of college. I'm working on the 30 Day Shred right now. I'm eager to move into my sophomore year of college and work on losing another 60-70 lbs. Quite a few pics due to my utter delight, haha. :)


This is from around May 2012

This was last June, I think; two or so months before I started losing

Prom! I was so nervous to wear a dress that showed my arms. I hated them at the time; I still don't love them, but I'm no longer as intimidated by tank tops!


This was a little shy of a month ago. See – tank top!

This shirt made me feel fierce as hell, but I didn't have enough money for it at the time. :(

These are from my uni's masquerade in April– I guess it's kind of the equivalent to prom? Just under a year later.


Here's a side-by-side. The left is from May 2012, and the right is from back in March (I'd lost maybe 75 lbs around then).

Also, my old pants! These are a size 24...my highest size was actually a 26, but out of the two pairs I kept (one 24, one 26) these are the loosest. I'm teetering between an 18 and a 16 right now.

So there you have it!! Hopefully I'll be able to post here again soon with another progress update! (✿◠‿◠)

    Wow you are looking wonderful. and healthier already. You keep on going. Hey maybe you could slip a nutrition class in as an elective? Do you still have to have PT credits? A hundred years ago I got mine by swimming twice a day because i'm disabled. good luck from an old grannie.
