Goal Photo Album - Finally, pictures of my goal!

I first started this journey in January 2005. It took about 8 weeks to get from 166 to 140 pounds. I have stayed at/close to this weight since then.
My first picture is me at my highest weight of 166 and was taken around May 2004. The second is of me at 135 in a bikini!! That was taken January 2006. The final two are from New Years Eve that just passed, so are only a couple of days old! Sorry about the pose of the last one!
This is the first time I have ever compared pictures side by side!
(I hope I posted these properly...).

I wish I could find a better before picture because that one really does not show as much as it could.
But thank you!
Leesaw73 - I lost the weight by exercising 5 days a week and eating between 1200-1400 calories. Of course, there were days when it was closer to 1700, but only once every couple of weeks.
My workouts consisted (and still do) of 45 - 60 minutes of cardio as well as 45 minutes of weights. I would do my upper body one day and legs the next. I did each 2x a week, so that one of my gym days consisted only of cardio. I started doing an ab pilates work out a few times a week as well, but it is only 10 minutes long.

Wow! It is amazing to see how much a difference going from 166 to 140 makes! Your workouts and diet sound GREAT and certainly did the trick! You will be so happy to get the weight off when you are young. At 55 I am finding the weight loss a tough go, and I am sorry that I spent so many of my younger years...FAT! Way to go, Cassandra! You look wonderful, and I KNOW you must FEEL wonderful, too!

Sorry, I sort of abandoned the internet for awhile but I really appreciate everyone's kind words!
I am a strong believer in "if I can do it, you can (and will!) do it".

I like how your shoulders are defined in the last pic. I would love to have a tummy like you do in your bikini shot, you look great in that pic- you look great in all the afters.
Congrats- enjoy that new body!

Honestly, you're my inspiration to lose weight!! I'm about 166 and 5'6 at the moment, and if I can even come close to looking like you, I would die a happy woman! What's your secret??????
07-31-2008, 03:11 PM
Oh my gosh...I'm currently 166 and 5'6" and want to get down to 140! Twins! Congratulations, you look great!
08-07-2008, 09:37 PM
Wow you have no idea how inspiring your photos are to me. I'm around the same age and weight as you and 130 is my goal! I've never been able to lose it for years and years ( about 10 if your really counting) and from reading your story and how you've done it, it really feels like I can do it! :)
