So, guys, I have a confession to make.
Three years ago, I was considered morbidly obese. I was 5'3", and I weighed 300 pounds. The weight gain was the result of a poor reaction to a birth control shot, and it was so excessive that my life was in serious peril. I have struggled with Type 2 Diabetes since I was thirteen, and, as anyone with diabetes can tell you, it makes weight loss very difficult - and the more weight you gain, the worse your diabetes is likely to become. I developed neuropathy in my legs, my blood pressure and cholesterol were in a dangerous range, I was developing blood clots, and my doctor told me that if I didn't get healthy, quick, I could have a heart attack before I was thirty. Still, for over a year, I sat around on my ass and didn't do anything about it. I was lazy and indifferent, and despite what I was being told - and despite what I was watching my dad endure - I didn't believe I was unhealthy. I was in denial.
Then my sister posted this picture on Facebook:
That's me on the far right. No joke. I've tried so hard to keep people from seeing this picture, as I am horribly ashamed that I let myself go like that. At the time that picture was taken, I weighed 307 pounds.
You guys heard about it when I went vegetarian, and you know I've been trying to lose weight. You know I have some serious self-image issues. But, today, I hit a milestone. After two years, I've finally lost over one hundred pounds, and I feel damn good about myself for having done it. I currently weigh 203 pounds, and I'm wearing a size sixteen, down from a size twenty-four. I only have fifty-five pounds left to lose to get down to my target weight!
These were taken yesterday, while dress-shopping for a wedding, and trying on the goods!
I'm even making retro look fabulous!
NO MORE CANKLES OMG.
NO MORE FAT CHICK FLAT ASS!
THE DOUBLE-CHIN AND JOWLS ARE GOING AWAY!
My avatar is an image created by this very talented gentleman
, of whose work I am extremely jealous. It was not originally a picture of Amunet, but it certainly looks a great deal like how I envision her!

"Gilgamesh, where are you hurrying to? You will never find that [everlasting] life for which you are looking. When the gods created man they allotted to him death, but life they retained in their own keeping. As for you, Gilgamesh, fill your belly with good things; day and night, night and day, dance and be merry, feast and rejoice. Let your clothes be fresh, bathe yourself in water, cherish the little child that holds your hand, and make your wife happy in your embrace; for this too is the lot of man."
Keep it up
I have a Type 1 Diabetic friend and her trying to lose weight was incredibly difficult as well as her insulin would go through the roof. Her weight was mainly in fluids around her stomach but her motivation was wanting to have a baby. In one year she lost about 32kg (70lb) from using a treadmill for 3 hours a day on just walking. So she's about 72kg (158lb) now and is now in her third trimester
Keep it up and you'll only get better and lighter! We should have a new thread to get the Achaeans exercising...
Well done beautiful lady!
Losing their light in the glorious sun,
Thus would we pass from this earth and its toiling,
Only remembered for what we have done."
You look beautiful crack out the crazy eyeliner and you look like you did 10/12 years ago!
