Still not a "success story", but one year on

Splutters Posts: 16 Member
It was a year to the day yesterday that I started dieting and going to the gym on a regular basis. When I started out I was roughly 326lbs, now I'm 90+lbs lighter. I was always somebody who couldn't tell the difference from how I am now to how I used to be, probably because I saw myself every day.

The main reason I'm posting this is because while it still isn't a success and I have a ways to go, it's the time of year where you get people posting on your social networks being negative about people who use the "new year, new me" phrase. Don't let them bring you down. I started at New Year and stuck with it so if you want to make a change, you can too.

The result of losing 90+lbs is now I apparently have a neck, haha. Bad pictures but it's the first time I've really noticed a difference. Also I suck at "selfies" and hate them.

    You sound like a success to me! Pat yourself on the back for a job well done thus far.
  • 90lbs is a massive success! Don't put yourself down just because you've set yourself a higher target. Sustained loss takes a lifestyle change as well as a diet and you've managed this for a year. Another 6 months and you`ll be there and life will be about enjoying your new shape rather than aspiring to it.

    You are definitely a success! Way to go! I also started last new year's day 2014 and I've lost 71 pounds so far and still going full steam ahead. About 20-30 more for me to lose but a success all the way and so are you. You look great and I know you feel great. Congratulations!
