Let me give you a little background on myself. I started my weight loss journey in January, and oddly enough it wasn't a resolution, I was just fed up with the way I was looking and feeling. I joined a gym and hired an awesome trainer. I've lost a LOT of weight and it's still coming off. More importantly, I am starting to feel so much better physically and about myself.
Here's a picture I took the week I joined the gym, it's not a full body photo but you get they idea.
