Change is good...

Besides becoming healthier, I decided to truly make a big lifestlye change (and actualyl STICK to it) so that we could start our family.  

On the left is me at nearly 315 lbs, about 3 years ago. On the right is me this past February, with DH and my nephew, at nearly 180. 

Best decision of my life. Surely, though I'm still "thick", the weight loss should help with getting pregnant. 
I can't wait to get my double lines. C'mon 4/18! (FF says I should wait to test until then. I'm sure I'll crack before then).  


 

Believe it or not, I thought I looked thin in the left picture- when I took it (you BET I was sucking in and making a crazy face to be silly AND lessen the double chin).

 Congratulations! What an amazing accomplishment. You are such a good role model for your nephew and will be a great mom. You have such a heads-up on learning about sacrifice! :)

BTW you look beautiful.

Congratulations!! It's a huge accomplishment. And keep going because it DOES help. I was 273 and I went down to 140. I was finally able to have a baby and get pregnant again. Good luck, you've done great!
