    LMAO. Ya I knew what you were saying, just had to mess with you some though. LOL. HAHA, boy that would be fun. Maybe when we lose all this weight we will meet half way somewhere just so we can walk around with our heads held high. HAHA, I know I am horriable, but I cant help it. LOL. Its one more thing to keep me motivated. LOL

    Thanks Jazzygal! Your before and after photos are so different. I'm really just amazed at how much everyone's losing/lost with this.The hairstyle you have now is so cute on you!

    I best do some boxing. Fight the fat! Lol. I'm hoping I don't lose to much butt though. It'd be my luck if I lost all the booty and then only one inch at the bust! Thanks Bronzy!

    That's fine hun, I get this question all the time! My dad is black, and my mom is white, and everyone thinks I'm hispanic, lol. I don't mind it at all, because it makes for VERY interesting stories and happenings, but that's for another time...
    Hey! Do you know any product that evens out skin tone pretty well? I've got scars on the side of my face (this stuff is awful! they gave me an antibiotic for it!) and I'm trying to find something that works well.

    Hi Kellbell! You've come to the right board. The atmosphere here is very friendly and laid back. You'll love it.
    I know how you feel. I worked in a school cafeteria this past year. Lot's of little comments like that. Highschool kids aren't as sweet as I remember them...
    (Psh. Not.)
    Anyhow, welcome aboard!

    Ahh! I meant that most people aren't kind enough to say something positive about anyone anymore. Dangit you! You know what I was trying to say! LOL!
    You and me, gurl!! We'll be walking right on by the haters! Doesn't that just get you all inspired!? I know that's bad, but yes, I want to feel that someday.

    Anyhow, good night everybody. Seeya in the morning...
    First, love and accept, then change.

    Welcome to the board! I just started a week ago, well almost a week ago. Your gonna love it here. I kow what you meen about the mirror, I dont even tempt to look in them. lol.

    About the lil girl, You know dont take that to heart, I mean its good that gave you motivation, but kids will be kids, and more likely then not, she learned that talk from her "skinny" mother. UGH

    I mean that from my heart. I can't type what I want to say, because it's so much more than thank you.
    I've lived in the smallest hill-billy town in Kansas for as long as I've known. People around here don't give me the time of day. Really, you don't know how much it means to me. I know it's nothing to you, you're just being kind, but I don't even get decency around here.
    I best quit babbling, but really, thank you. You never know how a small gesture can make someone's day.

    Dbeth- Now I'm all excited! It didn't hit me untill today! It's almost surreal, in three months I won't be like this any more. Weird. I'll take your advice and take those pictures!

    Insearchofme- Thanks! I hope your doing well, hun. How's getting back on track going?

    Libby- Oh I'm pretty sure i've got thunder thighs, lol. You are lookin fine, girlfriend! 52 pounds is awesome!

    Litascorner- You have incredible eyes! No secrets here, just a lot of prayer. Lol.

    Cashmonkies- Hell yeah, ya did. You went through all that and still put those pics up? That was awesome. Inspiration maybe? You bet.

    Jalen & Kaden's mom- That's what I'm hopin to do! Get rid of these batwings and wear somethin fine for once! Lmao! No more baggy clothes. That'd be a dream come true...

    Thin4good- This board is so much kinder than so many others. There's thread's about Weight watchers boards being all snippy and what not. That's what most of them are. I'm glad I found this.

    Scatanafas- I'm hoping I can get some lift too! Lol!! Thanks!

    Thanks for the millionth time, ladies. It's been one hell of a day, and you guys made me bawl like a little kid again...

    Aww, Im so glad we can all make you feel good! I know you have all done that for me as well!!! But FYI, I wasnt being kind, I was speaking the truth

    I know what you mean though, about people not giving you the time of day. I have even over herd people saying something about me. Once I over herd Husbands friend saying something about me and being big. I thought he was gonna kill the guy. Havent seen him in a few years now, so you know how that talk went.

    A lil food for thought, when you reach your goal, and have all this new confidence, and all these self centered people who wouldnt give you the time of day will be crawling at your feet, and then your time will come, to show off the new you, stick your head up high, and ignore them! Thats the day I am waiting for anyway. LOL

    OMG your face is so pretty! I can see the acne in the picture... I know how you feel by the way... but you have almost an exotic latina look to your face and it's gorgeous in spite of the hated red spots. Mind if I ask what nationality you are?? The pics are kinda dark on my comp and I can't tell.

    I think you have a great shape now....when you lose you are going to have great legs, a smaller lower half and bodacious ta tas......
    I did it!! Reached goal and have been here for quite a while thanks to low carb eating and working out like crazy! Phen didn't work for me, but that isn't to say that there aren't other ways. God bless all of you!

    You are soooo pretty! Child, you need to take Toccara down and put your picture up there! Lard knows I loves me some Toccara, however YOU can give her a run for her money! If your before pics looks like that just imagine your after pics!!! You'll be trading in your "bat wings" for the Bat Girl black leather outfit. LOL!

    like i told you before.....i was exactly where you are only 3 months ago!! i know it seems like forever, but it really goes by fast when you are so focused on losing. if i can do it then TRUST ME, anybody can! you are beautiful now, but you are gettin' ready to be HOOOOOOOT! it's a great idea to take pictures. after losing 20+ pounds i couldn't see it when i looked in the mirror, but when i would look at pictures i could tell a big difference. you're doing great!

    Someone that understands! *hug* These things need to pay at least one fifth of the rent every once and while if their going to be one fifth of the weight!. I'm lovin the happy bunny PJ's, by the way.

    Thank you superstar, that really means a lot. I am my worst critic, I can't help but see all the flaws. Like you said though, this will be a memory soon.






    (Hopefully like, tomorrow soon.)

    Haha, I love how you think you look so bad in this picture. When I see it, I just see a beautiful, sexy lady! Anyway, I'm proud of you for taking this step to post your before pic. If this is before, watch out for after!

    Haha, I was just coming on here to do this as well. You and I are in the same boat. I got the teen acne/cystic acne thing going on. And I think if we could rid ourselves of half of our 'girls' we'd be halfway to our goal by now!
