Very helpful. I'm always trying to figure out how I look, and I'm at about the same starting weight as you were. My mother thought I was overweight at 125 lbs, so I've never really had a realistic image of myself. What you see in your head is not necessarily what you see in the mirror.
Way to go! Our stories are similar. I have yet to reach my goal weight, but I did use pregnancy as a license to indulge. I know better now. I stopped doing Sparkpeople for a while but just recently felt it was time to take back control (after my weight loss stopped and I began to gain a little despite mostly clean eating and daily workouts). I needed to see what I was eating and just how much... so here I am again. Thanks for sharing and for being an inspiration! Not giving up!!
Wow! What an inspiration! You look just awesome! Made tears come to my eyes. I see so many young women with children that are very overweight and they don't seem to care. It is wonderful that you became fit and healthy and are teaching your children to do the same! Contragulations! You are Amazing! :)
