Overcoming Obesity

330 VS 299 - Whats it look like?

I just have to say that I appreciate all of the support and encouragement, you guys rock the house! It is overwhelming the love, cheers, well to dos, and hugs that I have received from everyone! Thank you so very much!

Many people have asked for updated pics, I was going to wait until I lost 50 pounds before posting any pics, but hey.... 31 pounds, that is pretty significant, so here we go

330 Pounds:

299 Pounds:

So, not a huge difference but noticeable in the upper tire :) It's not as inflated anymore! Lovin it! My Brother saw me this afternoon and said, Sis... your losing weight! I said, oh come on, your pulling my chain, I know you can't tell. He told me, yes you can, in the middle, you not as round as you were, keep it up!

I was like, woo-hoo, a person finally noticed! Yippee!

Okay, I am putting a rating on the next pic, X and of course that is for XLarge
The Rear View at 299:

So yes, Baby's Got Back! I always have, it just kept growing with the rest of me. I decided to add the backside, now that I've joined SPARK, I am a little more hip to what angles to take pics from, basically, any angle that I have avoided for the last 10 years. I don't have one at 330 but I thought it would be good to see the backside at 299 so I would have a comparison later. I don't want to lose all my junk, but I do want to minimize it with the rest of me.

One more shot... the side view @ 299 (no 330 pre-shot available)

So this is me at 299. Not a huge difference from 330 pounds but it is 31 pounds less (not to mention, I am in TWOVILLE), my clothes feel better and I can wear blouses that I haven't been able to wear in a few years. Woo-Hoo!


  1. This is so exciting!!! I can totally tell a difference in your pics. The purple shirt looks very nice and love the jeans! Very tailored-looking.

    You are doing so good--Welcome to TWOville!


  2. Awesome! You're doing great!

  3. You just keep on plugging away girl! You are doing a FANTASTIC job! We are totally going to do this, and yes you are an inspriation to others. Keep it up!

  4. Hey girl!!! I just found your blog and I'm soooo impressed w/ how much you've lost already in less than 2 months!!! Your food pics are just amazing, also. I love that you post the calorie amounts, as I'm a calorie counter!!! I used to weigh 340 lbs at my highest, back before I started my blog. I was 272 lbs last June when I started blogging. So I know all about weighing in the 300's and I wanted to say Welcome to Twoville!!! Very, very proud of you! :)

  5. Great for you... You look wonderful. And I too love your hair... Cute Cute Cute.....

  6. Really neat to see the change in you!!

  7. Your blog is very inspiring. You can see the difference too. Welcome to twoville

  8. Hey Great Blog,
    Stacy from Sparkpeople.
    How do you take your water everyday?
    I will be following you, have at least 70Lbs
    to loose. Great job again,

  9. Congratulations!!! I am so proud of you! Welcome to two-ville!! I can definitely see a difference ESP in the upper body and around the thighs the jeans look a lot looser I don't know if they are the same pair or what.

  10. I can definitely tell!! Awesome job! :)

  11. Awwww, thanks guys. Your support and encouragement mean the world to me. I am still in awe when someone says that I inspire them. When I started this journey, it was about overcoming obesity and my addiction to food... well habit, not addiction, I will no longer give food that kind of power. I still struggle with it, don't get me wrong, but I am learning to eat healthier and what nutrition means. I never thought that I might inspire someone, that is so flattering. I am so glad to be able to help anyone along the way. Honestly, I wouldn't be where I am at right now without support.

    HUGS to ALL!

  12. Just found your blog via SparkPeople. Love it! You're doing an amazing job, keep up the good work!

  13. Just found your blog, its great!

    Welcome to TWO-VILLE :) I can notice the difference. You are doing good!

    I'm still trying to muster the courage to take some "before pictures" frankly. I am just starting my journey again (and for the last time!)

  14. Anini, you can do it! Take pics because this will be our year to scrapbook, just imagine what you can do over the next 10 months. Hold your chin high, you can do it!

    Thanks Neuro, I am so glad you found my blog and took the time to check it out. Support goes such a long way. Thanks for taking the journey with me!
