50 pounds... updated for the haters ;)

I don't have any good pics of me from when I was bigger, because I hid from the camera. At my heaviest, I was 280. Or maybe higher.. I stopped weighing myself at 280.

Yesterday, I tried on a swimsuit for the first time in FOREVER. I'm not going to actually wear it, I just wanted to try it on and see if I looked as horrible as I thought I would. I weighed in at 249.8 (out of the 250s finally!!) yesterday and was feeling confident. :)

I realize I'm still really big, but it felt nice to not feel disgusting in a swimsuit. I'm actually seeing progress for once and am proud of myself! It's a tough balance, though, because if I get too comfy I'll gain it back.

Anyway, I still have 50 pounds to go... 70 if I want to be "healthy" on the charts... but 50 sounds much nicer so I'm gonna stick with that. :)

Anybody else in the middle of their weight loss journey? I could use some encouragement/advice/tips.

Headed to the gym in just a bit... living there lately. :)

Here is a before/now .. the fat ones are from April 30th. The others are from yesterday.

July 18-

How is everyone doing with their weight loss? I just did a 3.5 mile walk/jog and then flipped (200+ pound) tires at the track! Super fun but it's HOT! Had lunch (salad!) and now am heading to the gym.

7/24 It's been a while since this post had any responses so I had forgotten about it. :)

Been busy flipping tires!

Also it was mentioned that the "before" photos were some how fake. These photos were snapped from still shots - from this video on April 30th. Videos don't lie. When I saw myself looking THAT fat... well, that was my breaking point and that's when I decided to *start moving*! I had always been good at posing to where I didn't look AS big... but the video busted me out, big time.

While some people sit on Cafemom talking about my "fake" pictures, I'll be at the gym losing even MORE inches and MORE pounds. Enjoy!

Congratulations on the weight loss!!! The swimsuit looks good! Have you thought about a new hairstyle/color to boost your confidence?

No. I am plenty confident with my hair. It's the perfect length for being thrown in a ponytail to work out, which is all that matters to me until I get to my goal weight. ;)

As long as it's being used, that's good! :)
