50 down 50 to go

edited June 2015 in Success Stories
I have been waiting 6 months to be able to post my first success story! In just over 6 months I have been able to lose 50 pounds with MFP! I can't explain how amazing I feel and how grateful I am for finding this app.

I have spent a lot of time going through everyone's before and after pictures hoping that one day I would be able to post my own. Although I am only halfway to my goal, I am still very proud of the difference between where I am today and where I started. If I can give any advice to anyone it is to take pictures of yourself. Create a folder in you phone and save them. Save them so you can reflect on them and look back at how far you have come. I remember taking my before pics and crying. Crying because I looked horrible and deleting them about 10 times before I had the courage to take some and actually save them. I didn't understand at first why I had taken these completely unflattering pictures of myself and couldn't imagine the horror I would feel if anyone ever found them. As time went on and I started to transform, I then understood the importance of the before picture.

So with that being said, today I would like to share my before and 6 month in photo with you all and I welcome you to post yours as well. Congratulations to everyone for all of your hard work and I wish everyone continued success! I look forward to posting my next success story once I reach my goal of losing 100 pounds! Until then...take care friends.

(I tried to edit my picture because it was huge, but somehow I deleted it and can't get it to upload again, sorry about that)
