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

Holy mole guacamole! You have done such an amazing job honey. You are what this site is all about. You give me so much motivation knowing that yes, I can do this. Wow. You deserve nothing less than everthing!
Welcome to your journey - May it be prosperous.

Dear Lord, You are the beginning and the end of this great narrative called history. Thank You for writing me into the story. Though I play only a small part, may I play it well. May I honor You with my days and my choices and may I truly know that Your grace works. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

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