I have spoken with a few members on this board that have encouraged me to post my before and during pics. I have decided to do so this evening. I am far from being at my goal but I continue to work hard at it. If these can help anyone, I am happy to share them....even though my stomach feels like it's in a million knots with the thought of posting them.
I pretty much avoided cameras as much as I could so I don't have a full length (that I can find at the moment) of when I was 400 lbs (actually I was 403 lbs. but I rounded it off to 400 lbs. when I first started the board and Atkins on July 19-08 .
As of today, I am 13 lbs lighter from the most recent picture that was taken of me on Jan 18-09....as of today I am 234 lbs. I didn't have a new picture taken but instead will post a new one when I am 200 or in "Onederland"...which I can not wait for!!!
