I'm blown away by your amazing progress, discipline, and strong determination, MRBRIGHTSIDE! I've been at my final goal for a while, too. It feels like being an entirely new person, and I can only imagine that with the really transformative changes you've managed to make, you must feel like a different, phenomenal person!

Yay for you! Thanks for sharing your success. We all want to be where you are at today. And I took note when you said there are still some foods/drinks that you just plain avoid to stay successful. Congrats on your anniversary.

Thanks for sharing! I love the chronological picture sequence! So inspirational… How often were the shots taken, may I ask? Was it every so number of months/weeks/pounds? You look fab, great job!!

Congrads!! emoticon I am striving to reach my goal also but I am having a difficult time. Maybe I should knock out the ice tea, even though it is sugar free. emoticon

in alot of ways, maintaining is harder than losing.

1 year ago, I reached my final goal of 180 pounds. I started at 319 Jan 2012, July 8th 2012 I would reach 180.
I not only can say Ive maintained it, but I went BEYOND it as well. My weight today is 164, I actually reached that by latter half of 2012.

I still eat mostly what I did when losing the weight, I do treat myself to a hoagie once, sometimes twice a week.
But some stuff I still haven't touched since before Jan 2012, like soda, juice, iced tea (I only will drink water, unless its fat free milk in cereal), hot pockets, and such.
