I was 215 pounds a year ago. I've gotten down to 150 and want to lose about 25 more lbs. Though I've started getting much more attention, compliments etc, I also still feel like I am as big as I was. I think it's tiny things for me (like that fact that I never buy new clothes because I know I'm still losing weight) that make me feel drab and gross. On the rare occasion that I do pamper myself, I start to really appreciate where I am.
