Deanna,

Your transformation is remarkable! You have lots to be proud of, most importantly, for taking control of your health. My fiance and I are just starting (12/30/09), and hope to have a similar story to yours!

Keep up the good work!

What a sucess story!! last summer I thought I would be hitting my goal weight in January2010. Instead I "fell off the wagon" gained back the 50+ lbs I had lost and added a couple more. You are a role model to people like me. I am starting again and this is day 2 on FITDAY . I can't wait to hear when you lose that last 25. next january I want to have a post just liked yours !

Deanna,
This is amazing. I cannot believe these great results after only 1 year! I mean, I don't know about you, but it took me at least a good 10 years to become overweight. Not a bad deal if it only takes a year to go back to normal! ha ha ha

Do you find you've changed a lot on the inside as a result of the changes in your appearance? Maybe this is a dumb question or even too personal, but I keep trying to imagine myself skinny - what will I be like? Will I still be the same person if everyone treats me differently? I feel like everyone will probably treat me differently.

I am now down to 177- only 17 more pounds to reach my goal of 160. Only 4 more pounds and I will be half the person I was when I started at 345.

I don't think I have changed much. I don't find that anyone treats me differently so that tells me I am the same old Deanna! I honestly don't even see my body much differently. This may sound weird but my mind cannot wrap itself around the fact that I am much thinnier than I used to be. For instance- I had 2 shirts that my sister had given me that I pulled out of the closet the other day. I asked my daughter which one I should wear. She told me neither- they were both too big. I laughed and told her I doubted if I could even fit into either one as they looked too small. I tried them both on and they were HUGE which was a shock to me. So my mind still does not see my body as it is. I always wondered how people with anorexia couldn't see how skinny they were. Although I am far from being skinny and anorexic- I guess I know now to some extent why they can't see themselves for what they are.
