I'm glad you were able to, too. Stop ya frowning over there lol. I couldn't even take a picture when I first started. All of me wouldn't fit in the cam lens lol

Lol. Should I join in on this self bashing? I was 222 pounds when I started so I have you both beat! :) Doesn't it feel good to say we are UNDER 200 pounds? Do you remember the days when 200 pounds seemed like a whale and you could never be that big? Then bam, one day you were and who the hell knows how it happened? lol. The good news is we are working our way towards a healthier, slimmer, and happier us.

LOL Christie!! Yes! It's an awesome feeling to be under 200 pounds! :D I remember 200 was my "limit" so to speak. When I would start inching closer to it, I would go on some kind of "diet" just to lose about 10-15 pounds and then I'd stop and slowly start climbing towards it again.

Christie, :) thanks for joining the self bashing! lol lol.. but you are right - I remember when I would hear people say 200 pounds I would frown and then the day I gave birth to the twins they weighed me and I was 205! I was so sad.. at that point I had gained 55 pounds the whole pregnancy.. Thanks for the reality check.. :) So yes, we are on our way to a slimmer, healthier, happier us!

I was 185 when I got pregnant and gained 44 pounds. Then a couple of years ago, I went to the doctor and they weighed me and I weighed 3 pounds less than I did when I went to the hospital to have them. I just about died! We're all gonna be hot, foxy mamas :P

Girlfriend.. THat is the reason I went on this diet.. When I got on the scale about a week before Oct.1st.. and that awful scale read 205 I was like DOGGONE IT! I weigh 5 pounds more than I did at birth for twins and I am nowhere near pregnant!!! I was so outdone!! So I found this site thru atkins.com and met all of you wonderful ladies/buddies/group etc.. lol lol.. Happy I am here!

I've gotta go fix me something to eat, now. Great chatting with y'all! :)

Ohh yeah I did that too while we were chatting fixed a salad with prepared tuna (miracle whip, egg, mustard) on top.. It will fill me for about an hour..

This is a good picture. As for the flash, check your camera. It may have a setting to turn the flash off. Uhoh...self bashing. I got ya ALL beat. LOL I was 160 when I got pregnant and 195 the day I went to deliver. Now a year later I'm 240--after losing from 255. I'd never been over 210 in my life. With time, patience and persistence great changes be made.

I think this was a great conversation.. It is nice to see us share details as we do.. Especially the pregnancy weights and weights after.. We are all in this together and soon we are going to be sharing our actual GOAL weights.. ;) :)

Ohh yeah and Rachel, thanks for the advise of the flash.. I'm going to do a test run today.. I was thinking it was because I was too close to the mirror.. lol lol lol..
