You look wonderful! Congratulations on your weight loss and thank you for posting those pics. I don't think I'd have the guts to post a pic like that but it really does help to see the changes as the weight comes off in a way that a fully clothed pic cannot.
What I find interesting is how people carry weight differently. You must be quite a bit taller than I am because your pic at 288 lbs looks way smaller than I am at 223(ish). I look HUGE at this weight in comparison...which, I guess, is why it's so important to NOT compare one person to another, lol.
Anyway, WTG on the loss. You look wonderful!
