I have 93 pounds since January 2011. I tried to avoid photographs before I lost weight, but if I come across any I can put on the computer I will. I also give a pat on the back to all who have lost weight because I know it is not easy. I am trying to maintain my weight of 188 lbs, and I just finished two hours of Spinning Class. Good job everybody.

Ok, so I've lost thirty pounds. I had a friend help me take some newer pictures bit I still dont like the pictures. Dagnabbit! Some of them are blury. A couple of them were outside and my hair is blowing in funny ways.... and NO! I dont look like a super model with the fans blowing my hair in all the fun exciting ways either ha ha ha It is hard to take pictures of yourself. I have been trying to get help from my daughter but my kids schedules seem to be all over the map. Oh well, you will all have to just suffer for nmow with my picture as is. Anybody have picture issues that they would like to share?

That's quite a difference, Victor. I like both versions of you. My only critique is your lack of smiles. I bet you are even more handsome when you smile.

You guys are all inspirational.

I've felt like a bit of a stalker reading through the forums, but this one hits home with me too. I've struggled with my body image all my life and seeing your stories gives me hope biggrin

That is so awesome. I congratulate all of you for your efforts. I have struggled with my weight since the 4th grade. Up, down, up again. NOW menopause is here and it is kicking my body in all different directions. I used to get upset about it and it had kept my self esteem pretty low sometimes but I am working on not letting it define who I am. Besides, with a heart as big as mine it needs a bigger vessel. I do have thyroid issues but the meds are supposed to take care of that. I do my best to eat right and I go to Curves so I don't know what else to do except accept that this is the way the good Lord made me and take comfort in knowing that He is preparing someone, somewhere who will love me regardless. Until then I really do appreciate knowing I am not alone and would welcome any encouragement for anyone who knows what it's like to struggle, and I can offer the same in return.

I can totally relate to what you're saying, Donna!

I was a runner for many years, and very physically fit. Then along came menopause, followed by widowhood and depression, and voila`-- much more of me to love these days! I'm still quite active (though not with the intensity I used to have because of time constraints), and eat well. I do have a metabolic disorder, though (PCOD), and so the weight is tough to shed.

Like you, I firmly believe that God will provide the person who will love me for me--in fact, my Shrek and Princess Fiona post pretty well sums it all up!
