My first post with pics of MYSELF! First- thank you to everyone here who has been so supportive- you've been a HUGE part in helping me stay on track! I'm an MFP'r for life!!

I started my journey exactly one year ago today, May 10, 2012 – with a whopping 75-80lbs to lose. I’m happy to say, that with a complete change of my diet, and watching portion control, as well as exercise and MFP for tracking… I reached my goal of 80lbs lost just last week. Of course now that I’m here, I’d like to lose another 10… but I’m very proud of the 80 I lost (never to find again!) in that year. And to celebrate my milestone, I am running my first 5K bright and early tomorrow morning. It’s a Mother’s Day run – the perfect way to celebrate this victory!
Here are some pics of my journey… and if I can do it- anyone can! For real!!!

Xmas time 2011 - at my heaviest (240lbs!) still hadn't decided to do anything yet!

Just a week or two into my new LIFESTYLE!

About 3.5 months in-- swimming was a HUGE help to me! Training for an event in the fall.

I did it! After swimming all summer, I completed a mile (in 45 mins) and raised over $1500 for women with cancer (lost my own mom to breast cancer 10 years ago).

Xmas 2012 - 1 year later and down 70lbs! I can't believe the difference between the top photo and this one!

Me and my AWESOME husband (biggest supporter ever!) - just a few weeks ago! GOAL!!!

If I can do it- so can you. Married, working mom of 2 small children, who finally decided to eat right, get off my ass, and start livin'!! It's hard work, and takes time and dedication- but it can be done!! Thanks to all my awesome friends on here!

Super, fantastic. Good for you. And look how good you look! Stay with it and never find that 80 again!
I am 67 and would love to lose 30 lbs. Just started 3 days ago and am committed. I want to be skinny for
the first time in my life. I have never been Fat - but could always stand to lose 10-15. You have to be ready
to get into this but i think i am and this site is just so much fun to track food and exercise. You can't hide it,
you know where you are. I am injured at the moment, but hope to come back slim and ready to beat all my
opponents on the tennis court!

Again - congratulations and i bet you could never have swam or run that far - pre MFP !
