    Thumbs up 230's to bikini in almost 2 years!

    You can read my progress through the years here: http://www.atkinsdietbulletinboard.c...1lbs-down.html (Newbie slowly shrinking away - 41lbs down)

    Almost 2 years ago I started out in the 230's and was in 24's. Now I'm down to 148-150 and a size 8 (sometimes even a size 6)! I have better health, better self esteem, and a better outlook. It helps so much that I have family and friends that support me.

    So, with that all going for me, I took a deep breath and ordered a bikini. I live in So. Florida, 15 min. from the beach. Though I don't go all the time, I will finally look good! Now, I know I still have a lot to work on, but I have not worn a bikini since I was 8. This is a huge landmark for me! And the fact that I am comfortable sharing this photo with all of you says a lot.

    I started here:


    And now I'm here:

    My goodness What a wonderful progress. I love the photos. You have a beautiful smile at every stage but it looks like you are getting younger.
    congratulations.
    Bikini sure suits you compared to the kind of "covering" outfit you had on in pic number one

    Thank you to all of you. I'm still working away at the weight, still doing well. I Jazzercise 3 days a week and iceskate one night. Though the pounds haven't come off much lately, the inches have, so I'm ok with that. Now I just need to work on my tan!
