MOD - READ THE FIRST POST BEFORE POSTING!10/10/2011 - &endeavor:
01. All transformation posts MUST be accompanied by a story/explanation why you think you've transformed. This is to alleviate any discrepancy on people's perception on what's considered a "transformation."
02. Any post that does not have a story/explanation will be deleted and WILL merit a warning.
For example, here are two completely made up stories that you can use as a guide.....
I used to weigh 430954 pounds and have horrible skin. I was teased a lot as a little duckling because of the way I looked. I decided one day that I was going to eat healthier, sleep more, and overall take better care of myself. Now all the ducks wants to be my friend even the ones that lives in the neighboring lake!

My family went through some hard times. I was constantly depressed and didn't know what to do with my life. I was abandoned and lost. One day I met this person and she changed my life. She was the answer my family and I were looking for. Through her I learned that there's always hope and no one is ever really lost. I went on to graduate school where I obtained a license to be a professor at Doggy University. I am happier than ever!

Hopefully the two above examples gave everyone an idea of what's required from now on. You don't have to be elaborate with your story but please do share why you are happier now with yourself than with who you were before.
WOW! TAKE A LOOK AT THIS!

Well, this amazing transformation not only applies to birds, but to people as well.
And I'm sure there are many people here on Soompi that have gone through this transformation. And I'll tell you, it's not a shallow change, because it also impacts you emotionally and mentally.
Well, if you are one of those people who have gone from an ugly duckling to a magnificent swan, post your story and experience up here.... and pictures (if you can), to give us a better idea.
