Well, I finally reached my appropriate weight. I guess this is self-gloss, but damn, I've been working my butt off to lose the weight. I was put on some meds that made me gain weight, I'm still on them, but nothing beats hard exercise and eating healthy. I started on the Atkins diet, but quit after a short time because I couldn't stand just eating greasy meat, cheese, and eggs. Then I started South Beach, which was better, but not great. So I started working out every other day and eating VERY healthy, low-fat foods.
Here's me a year and a half ago at 250 pounds:
And here's me today at 180 pounds:
I feel like a million dollars, though I need to do a little more toning in the gym. But god, you don't realize how big you were until you lose the weight.
Anyway, thought some of you might get a laugh at this.

Well done! You look fabulous and should definitely be congratulated. I had a similar (though not so significant) weight loss myself of about 55lb. In the end all I found worked for me was controlling my calorie intake and exercising on a regular basis. My weight was an emotional rather than physical facet and I just had to deal with it as such.
At around 200lbs - Sorry about the size (of the picture)
