    Thank you everyone.  Most of the time I take the compliments with downcast eyes.  I am still not used to the attention (I am getting better).  Something about it coming from all of you feels better and I am proud you guys like my transfomation.  Maybe because we all truly understand each other's journies.

    18 months out 130lb gone!
    God how I used to hate having my pic taken....lol.  This is certainly a reminder of why it wasn't something I looked forward to having done.  I am much more likely to sit and smile for the camera now.  Thank god for my life back!

    Congrats to you!  I know all about the secret goal!  My goal reads 165 cus its nicely inside the BMI range for my height.  But......I really want to be at about 150.  LOL  3lbs till the 100's so we shall see where I end up.

    I will be 10 months out on Feb. 11 and I still really can't do chicken well. My stomach feels icky nearly everytime i eat it. Dry or moist doesn't seem to make any difference so far. Thankfully, my pouch absolutely LOVES steak. I eat it all the time and practically feel my tummy happy dancing. I say just keep trying it on occassion, but try other proteins that your tummy likes in the meantime.

    Thanks guys! I went ahead and hacked and dyed it again on Friday. My hair was so stinking thin and limp and dry. I think my hair looks much healthier now. Not sure my face shape works with it this short, but the hair is definetly way healthier looking.

    2013 starting off right! (update)
    I will be at 9 months on Jan. 11th. I am down 115 lbs and I'm feeling pretty good. I can't even imagine how I am going to look and feel when I get down these last 45. Such an incredible journey in just 9 short months. So blessed to have my health and body back to start 2013. The wedding pic wasn't at my largest, but it was close. I was about 292 lbs in that picture. I would love to get my wedding pics retaken now, but that would be cheating and even at that weight, I still loved my photographer and that whole day. Good luck to everyone starting their journey this year! Can't wait to see how you are doing in 2014!I decided to go a little darker and shorter. What do you guys think? I think I like it....

    Ok, so it's growing on me, slowly. I have been blonde for 32.5 years. lol. I'm having trouble adjusting.
