Thumbs up Thread of Honor for those reaching Goal!

Have you reached goal? If so, show off your accomplishments here and help inspire those of us who are still making our way towards our goals. There is no better motivation than seeing before and after pictures of those who have worked hard and achieved their goal. Whether your goal was 10 pounds or 100 pounds we would love to see your pictures and read your story.

Congratulations on your accomplishment!

Thumbs up

Yes, I agree! It's very inspiring/motivating for me to see the "before" and "after" pictures. It gives me hope that...
I too...will one day, reach my goal!
Maybe some kind of "Thread of Honor" to goal people as it's really an achievement that deserves some attention!

I think that is a great title for a thread like this. Now all we need is a moderator to see this post and give us some feedback.

I have reached my originally set goal!!!!! My before/during/after pictures are in the family album thread. They are big and lots of them- so I'm not sure I should post them again here in this thread?

I reached my goal on 8/16/03... but I'm not exactly where I'd like to be. That's just the goal I set when I was at my heaviest weight. At this point I don't care if I never lost another lb- but I have serious issues in some problem areas like stomach, thighs and even my calves are big... so I'm focusing my determination now from losing weight to maintaining that weight and exercising! That's been my weakness all along.

Wish me luck on that. LOL I am the queen of making excuses when it comes to exercising....

Ok!

Here is a link to some before and after pictures. I need to update Ross' pictures! Hopefully he will let me take some pictures of him over the weekend. I really hope nobody thinks this is too vain. I am proud of how I look now, but it has taken alot of hard work and I have only looked this way for a short period of my life. I wish I had some pictures of me from my heaviest point, but they were involved in a nasty break-up years ago and my ex-boyfriend never returned them to me. Oh well! I do have a picture of me from about 10 years ago when I was around 175 pounds and in a really tight 14, but I need to scan it in and our scanner is on the fritz! Anyway, I'm in much better shape at 34 than I was at 24, that's for sure!

Oh my!!! You both have done so well!!! It's so inspirational to me to see and read what others have been able to accomplish!! It just helps so much to know others have been through this and have actually made it to the other side!!!

Karen-You were beautiful before, but now....VA VA VOOM!!! I love those pics of you holding out the front of those too baggy jeans in ever smaller sizes!! And if there is one ounce of puckery skin in that shorts pic, it sure don't show, honey!!! You look great!!

Bibbidy-My computer wouldn't show your pics in the family album but 70 pounds and 78.5+inches are plenty inspirational to me!!!It really takes a special commitment to reach that kind of loss!!

Thanks to you both for posting on this thread!!:D

I'm sorry- I wonder why the pictures wouldn't show for you?
I updated that thread with more recent photos- maybe try again and see if you can see them now?

Thanks for your kind words.

Ladies, you look mahvelous! Gee - when I think how both of you started losing weight early in 2003...I think of all the time I have wasted!!!

I have plenty of chubby pics posted on the DIS - so I'm looking forward to being able to post slim and trim ones in the next few months.

Great job! This is the inspiration I need. I'm just getting started, and I need to have someplace to motivate me to not cheat. Or at least not to cheat often.
