Before: Woah.. THIS is scary. At my worst, 301 pounds.

i'm the biggest one! (blonde hair)

After: This halloween.. After losing 85 pounds!

Now I'm normal.. Like everyone else Smile

I still have a long way to go, but I'm glad I've gotten this far. These pictures remind me of how unhappy I used to be. I have so much confidence now.. I hope this can be used as some kind of motivation for all of you! If I can do it, you can too. Have a blessed day Smile

Good for you! Pictures can show us things that are sometimes hard to see at the time.
