I realize you were able to pose however you wanted in order to get the right angle...but still! I didn't notice flabby tissue, although I wondered if being that heavy and now this light had an effect on your skin.

    Good job! And I hope your ex has learned a regrettable lesson in regards to how he treated you.
    Those pictures are post operation. Haha yes, all the kids that bullied me in school (I had to switch schools three times) are all of sudden my best friends. I have yet to "go home" but my flight is booked May.26th! Don't want to give the wrong impression, but I'm doing this strictly for myself. I'm enthralled I was thrown in this situations, thats what made me who I am today!

    So what happened with me is that I had twin boys. I was always skinny before and after the kids. I eventually got run down a d started eating casseroles that people brought over. Before I knew it, I was up to 155 pounds. I finally hit rock bottom when I was stuffing my face with Halloween candy one night. I have a friend that was Mr Missouri and convinced me to do a show. I won it and I have veen hooked since! It's been a dream since. Pro bikini card, pro win, and now iForce sponsored athlete. Keep pushing for your goals and keep a positive attitude and good things will happen.

    Im not familiar with him or the book! But yes, I'm not ashamed or embarrassed. I want to use my second chance as an opportunity to help others see that it's Neve too late and is always possible to get healthy again.I actually recently completed a memoir of the whole ordeal spanning 2.5 years and current thoughts/ideals after having been recovered since 2007-8. I started writing it in 2007 and finished it in December 2012 as my thesis for my degree in journalism. I'd love to get it published to help spread awareness and education, and hope for recovery.
    You can pick it up at textbooks.com used for $4.99, it's a great read for those that have any interest in health at all.

My ex Fiance was cheating on me, with out me letting on I knew.. I engorged in food. I made a change by helping my parents move across country.. when my parents went back to the old house, I told them to ship everything over, I was done and never going back. They had remained at the other house, while I stayed in a new town, a nine bedroom house with my dog for nine months. I threw house parties to make friends, where I met a gym owner. The following day I got a gym membership. Well I didn't actually use that membership till six months later. The first month, i lost thirty pounds, from just cutting out bread. The rest is history. Within approx nine months, I was down 120 pounds. This is disgusting, but from being overweight my whole life, My skin had no memory mass of me being thin. I would literally duct take my stomach up to prevent it from slapping my legs. At that point? I needed skin removal surgery. I fought the health care system on getting it partially covered, and when the media got involved? The health care system covered 16% of a $64,000 surgery. I went under the knife for nine hours, to get reconstruction of my chest and stomach. Complications of my stomach muscles came into play. They grew out with my stomach. It wasn't necessarily the skin sagging? But the muscle inside it. They physically had to take my stomach muscle out trim it. So after surgery, I was to be bed ridden for four months.. but for being so healthy prior? I was back at the gym within two weeks. Opposed to never working a day in my life, now? I work two jobs, and stick strictly to the gym, and I've NEVER been so happy!! Im forty pounds down sense surgery, and have my next appointment next friday for more skin removal.. its been one hell of a year!

    I train judo twice a week and once in a while will do some sled drags or HIIT or agility work. None of which is really aerobic work but I suppose would fall under the cardio category

    that's the important part there, having started with the realization that it takes a long time to lose the weight that was gained over a long time. even so, that's pretty impressively fast for that amount!

    Is something like "don't let your self look like you did before" enough? It'd be a shame if you did...
