See my profile pics for before and afters. Proper nutrition is the key - you will need to make permanent changes that you presumably didn't make after the bariactric surgery.

You can do it! Best of luck.

Anyone can feel free to add me for mutual support.

Wow, your arms look amazing. What did you do to tone up your arms like that? I would love to have my arms look that way this time next year.

It took me less than 2 years to lose 202 pounds and have managed to maintain that for a couple of months now. I still want to lose another 7 pounds and then maintain a few pounds above that when eating to more.

154 pounds of that was by the end of the first year.

lots of my FL has. Just use the "search" feature here to search the "success" threads using key words like 100 lbs and etc. You'll find their detailed stories and pic's. And others. Get some tissues ready cause these people are inspiring.

It took close to five years, but I lost 130lb on my own. The pics are on my profile. It started with just living a more active lifestyle (walking to class, working a lot) then it transformed to an overall lifestyle change-no fast food, no soda, all that jazz.

I still have around 10 or so pounds left to go, but I'm in the best shape of my life and I feel great!

You have done an amazing job- well done! I thought I would post my progress shot. Hopefully it will work
I reached my goal over a year ago and have been maintaining since then. No bariatric surgery - just diet and heaps of exercise.

I gained 70lbs when I became pregnant with my son. When I delivered on August 5 2013, I was roughly 290lbs. I tried to blame the weight on the pregnancy, but the reality is I was unhealthy long before that. Evidenced by the "skinny clothes" I had hid away in the back of my closet and storage. 5 years ago I was sitting at a healthy weight of about 150lbs, and looked and felt amazing. I was active and fit... Then I met my fiancé and over the course of our relationship managed to pack on the pounds without really noticing. By the time I gave birth I was disgusted with the way I looked, though it was something that could have been helped before we even began trying.

I officially started "trying" to actively lose weight in October, once the stress of being a new mum had its time to sink in. The first time I stepped on a scale on October 15 I weighed 275. Yikes. I consider this my official "start weight".

I am currently sitting at 179lbs as of this morning! October to today I have been eating locally and as clean as possible (with the occasional treat of course!). I've been exercising almost daily and getting my butt off the couch! At 5'9 I am only 11lbs away from a healthy BMI!

Definitely couldn't have done it without MFP!
