:eek:

I found out my scale was off by 2 pounds today, which makes me already at goal!! :woohoo:

I'm going to post my story in a little bit. In the meantime, here are some pictures of my weight loss journey! (Beware, dial-up users, there are A LOT of pictures!)

I just wanted to show my love...:D

And HERE is a BIG, SINCERE smile:
http://www.custom-international.com/weightloss/135smile.jpg

I had a great time on New Year's 2006 and at my HW, I saw these pics and did not even realize how chubby I had gotten! The following pictures are of me at 175 pounds:

I was only smiling because I was next to my girlfriend:

I rarely allowed people to take pictures of me at my HW. However, after meeting the members of one of my favorite bands, The Cliks, pictures had to be taken. This was in June 2007, at the start of my weight loss journey:

After I lost 30 pounds (145), I really started developing some confidence AND outstanding muscletone:

I was pretty happy about that:

Since I found out today that I hit my goal weight, I had a great love affair with my camera.

ONE MONTH UPDATE PICS (12.04.07 - I also dyed my hair black and like it much more this way)
Yeah yeah, I like striking silly poses. I have actually done modeling in the past, though :lol:

You, my dear, are looking simply gorgeous! And you earned every one of those photos with all your hard work. :D Look how much your face has changed -- from a round moon to delicate, sculpted cheekbones. And you have that cute little pointed chin now. :)

You've come a long, long way and I hope you can look back on your before photos and see what wonderful changes you've accomplished. You're young and full of energy -- and now you can live your life to its very fullest, without the burden of your excess weight. Nothing can hold you back now!

You say that you love 3FC ... I hope you know that you've earned a very special place in all of our hearts too. :hug:

Heeee I feel special now, knowing I am the first one to make an "I <3 3FC" sign. :D

Wendalyn, I posted a couple smiling pictures JUST FOR YOU. :p feel special! ;)

I smile ALL THE TIME in person, but I always feel like my picture smile is so fake and forced.

Azure - Every time I see your icon, I think of Nicole Kidman... I swear... :) I was either drunk or getting drunk in all my HW pictures... I probably wouldn't let people take so many pics of me if I was sober :lol: THAT is probably why I was so freely smiling, too!

Meg - "Look how much your face has changed -- from a round moon to delicate, sculpted cheekbones. And you have that cute little pointed chin now." <----I'm going to have to print that out and look at that comment any time I am having an insecure "I think I'm FAT" day :o What an elaborate compliment! :D

You look totally awesome. AAAANNNNDDDD I MISS TALKING TO YOU. <3 my bestest chica, congrats on your goal making...thing. *offers up a cheddar bay biscuit*

How sad is it, those things have like 9g of fat each? :(

I guess its my turn to make with the losing weight now? :P

:congrat: SHANE ~ what a big difference from just a couple of days ago ;) ~ I agree that we need to see new photos with smiles in them. It's hard to believe that just 40 pounds changes one's looks so much; now you can make up a small photo album of before and afters to look at as you work thru your maintenance phase ... ROSEBUD

BUT for now, you can celebrate, again ...

Casandra - I'll get on MSN, then. :yes: And OOO! OOO! Cheddar Bay Biscuit!! I'm craving some Red Lobster now. I can't believe they have 9g fat, either. in ONE little biscuit around TWO SMALL inches in diameter? BAH! No WONDER it's so easy to get fat.

You have a lot of stairs at your job. You should run up and down them for minutes at a time and annoy everybody. :D

11-05-2007, 05:14 PM
I'm so surprised at how many comments I'm getting regarding how different I look after 40 pounds. 20 of them were for my health and 20 more were for my vanity ;)

It IS strange to see pics of myself at my HW, but it's even MORE strange to see pics of myself NOW, knowing that I'm fit and healthy :eek: I feel like a different person all around, but I'll post more about that with my story (I'm working on the story... hehe)

You look very attractive and confident.

Confident, oh yes. Too much sometimes. Despite the vanishing chins, my head has enlarged immensely ;) I've always meant to say that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your SOCKS :love:

HOTT NESS!!! :drool:

And you stuck with it through thick and thin and FLORIDA!!!! :rofl:

Jay

:lol: :lol:
My, my, I was SUCH a negative person pre-weight loss. If I found a way to hate something, I was all over hating it. Now, I'm just a happy person who rants often. It's a healthy thing to do :lol:

Shane thank you for posting the pics - I made a start today, I KNOW I can do it, I've done it before, but i seems like a looooooooooong way to goal. Seeing before and after pics really do help - thank you. I'll be keeping an eye out for the story too - see if I can pick up some tips.

And you do look great - not only slimmer but you look younger and happier too.

11-05-2007, 05:41 PM
SHANE!!! You made it!!! :bravo: chica!!! You are looking soooooo fab.

I remember when I joined 3fc this summer you were so kind to me from the start, your presence here is so pleasant and your before and after photos are so inspiring.

You are beautiful, inside and out. Congrats to you, miss!

NightengaleShane
11-05-2007, 07:02 PM
Awww Kim Renee, thank you for your super kind words... if I wasn't already sunburned, you would have made me blush a little :) :o

JenJam, damn right you can do it! :D We all have to start somewhere, right? When I first started posting here, my ticker had not moved yet and I was anxious to get it moving when I saw other people's progress. :wel3fc: and if you keep posting here, it will be hard not to lose... you and I had the same amount of weight to lose... if i can do it, you can, too... :yes:

Funny how I look happier when in most of the pics, I'm not even smiling ;)

losinitin07
11-05-2007, 07:18 PM
I have been struggling for weeks because I was not losing as fast I thought I should be. Have had days I just wanted to give up. Seeing your pictures and reading your story has been an inspiration to me and I'm sure to a lot of others.I know this takes time. Thank you Shane for sharing it has given me a new out look and I appreciate all the wonderful ,supportive 3FC members who encourage and love all of us who are struggling . Thanks again Shane :hug:

It's amazing how much difference 40 lb can make, isn't it? I'm so happy that you have achieved your goal. I see your next goal is an NSV, which is awesome. :cheer2: It feels good to take the focus off the number and onto the NSV's, doesn't it? (Well, there's always some focus on the number, but I think you catch what I mean!)

ennay - believe it or not, I DO remember "mahhhhvelous" - I guess I'm full of surprises - and thank you. :)

maalisse - I'll trade arms with you if you have nice abs to trade with me :lol: and yes, it DOES feel nice to stop worrying about the scale number and start working on more body-specific things.
and YOU are GORGEOUS, TOO!

Awww, lostin07, glad I could be an inspiration to you. It's hard getting started because if you're anything like me, you're probably setting difficult goals for yourself and trying really hard to be rational. Weight loss *does* take time, but the knowledge you gain from it and the gradual progression of higher self esteem is alllllll worth it.

Aphil - from what I can tell, YOU have beautiful eyes, as well!

BattleAx and Cats tongue, thank you both :D and GARY, are you e-flirting with me? :p

Wow, you look great!!!

I can really relate because my high weight was around 175 and I am the same height. I hope to get to my goal eventually too, thanks for the inspiration!
I've maintained my initial loss for a year, but am hoping to start losing again!
I am thinking south beach, bought the book the other day, did you use any special plan or just calorie counting and exercise?

gailr42
11-06-2007, 09:40 AM
What a difference! Your face is so stirking with all the planes and angles. If I had only seen the before pics, I never would have guessed at the real shape of your face. You should definitely get modeling jobs, now.

Your posts are always thoughtful or entertaining, and I have enjoyed your comments as you traveled along your weight loss journey.

Thanks for the inspiration. You are gorgeous!

Nice! We have the same starting weight and the same goal! :)

I did not use any special plan. I tried the Fat Smash Diet at first, but it was just so difficult. I followed the detox phase religiously, EXERCISED like a FIEND and STILL only lost ONE POUND. After that, I said TO **** WITH IT :mad: and had a weekend of eating steak, pretzels, ice cream, and popcorn... THEN I stepped on the scale and noticed a 6 pound loss and decided I had to continue making good choices so that I would keep losing.

I calorie counted and exercised... a lot. I do some form of exercise every day and exercise for 2 hours, 5 days a week. I started out eating 1,800 calories a day, then going to 1,700, 1,600, 1,500, 1,400, 1,300, 1,200, then stayed at 1,200 for awhile and started upping my calories when I hit a plateau. I started out riding my bike long distances right away, then started running (jogging, really - I did C25K) after I lost around ten pounds. I love running now and have also incorporated stairs into my workout routine for 30-45 minutes twice a week (I would do it more, but I have to go to the stadium and the student athletes are practicing during the week days).

I was and still am VERY diligent about my calorie counting. I make sure to log EVERYTHING I eat into FitDay, regardless of HOW BAD it is for me. I slipped up more times than I could possibly count... THAT is why I could never follow a diet plan. I did have a few guidelines, though: at least 100g protein, less than 25g fat, and 25g fiber.

I've found the biggest thing in weight loss is to be completely honest with yourself without beating yourself up. It's hard, but if you can find the balance, you'll go far.

My abs are still a little too squishy to trade yet, unfortunately, though I'm pleased to have, as someone here once said, a bellybutton that goes ":o" instead of ":(". (Hehehehe...) Guess I'll just keep working on my arms, then. ;)

And, shhhh! My ego will hear you!! It's getting a little too big for its britches lately... :lol:

11-06-2007, 07:00 PM
Thanks for sharing your diet information. I actually looked at your fitday because I don't know if I just don't make the right food choices or eat too much or what, that's why I bought south beach, to get a better feel for nutrition. I'm eating 1800 a day. I guess its too much food, but I also exercise 1 to 2 hours 5 days a week and I've done my share of running too, and I also have a physical job, so one would think...I would be losing!!!arghhh,

I actually did weigh 135 for a while and my average adult weight was 150. Well hopefully I'll figure it out, oh well. Hey congratulations again, I hope I post pictures one day.

I think it's really interesting/neat/cool/awesome how people notice how much happier I am after losing weight even though I'm not smiling in most of my pics. ;)

Of course, they'd be right... I feel like a totally new person now in so so many ways... like I said before, this is the first time in my entire life that I've finally found comfort and peace with my body.

NS, you are just adorable. I am so proud of you! :cp:

You should go back to modeling- you have the body and the looks for it. Awesome pics.

Congrats on a job well done!

Shane,

Thanks for commenting in my welcome thread. I just wanted to say that you look great and I love your style. I would love to share your haircut, lol. My hair is down to my butt and I cant seem to let it go. Good job! You look fabulous

Whitney, I used to have really long hair - not down to my butt, but past my boobs - I hacked it all off for my 17th birthday and never went back. Sometimes, I actually miss my long hair, but growing it out is A LOT of work and I do NOT want to deal with those nasty, shaggy in between stages. While saying that, if you want to try something new, go for it - hair DOES grow back (and relatively fast!) but you'll have a few months of "bleh" before it reaches original length.

coolgirl - it's NEVER too late to tell me I look good :lol: and judging from your avatar, so do you!! Oh. Floridians unite. haha.

steelslady - I actually have a pending photo shoot... though despite losing all this weight, I do not quite have the body confidence that I had before (when I was thin). I think the loose skin, stretch marks, and deposits of cellulite on my abdomen are the culprit. Thank you for your kind words :hug:

wishes - I LOVE your icon... it's wild and crazy and I can still tell you are pretty despite it! and I am flattered that you think I look like a different person now ;)

Shane, I have been peeking at your threads since late last year, wishing so much that I was at a goal weight where I could join in and work with you guys on fine-tuning abs...but have only begun to lose enough fat recently to even think it's possible.

What can I say that hasn't already been said about your transformation? Except that I think you need to ride a motorcycle :devil: :D

keep on keepin on, and you're inspiring all of us by showing WHAT CAN BE DONE! :carrot:

Why did she leave? :( I love her. She is a free, bright spirit and a kick @$$ woman. I know that she was recently a "Welcome Wagon" person too. What gives?

so i think your post was one of the first ones i looked at when i started here. i have since moved and haven't been back on to 3fc. but i'm back and looked at this post for inspiration again. thanks for being so cool. you rock.

I used to PM her about every day. She got a new job and has very little access to 3FC now. I haven't heard from her in over a month!

:eek: She lives! :eek:

So, I got this job where I had pretty much no access to 3FC, then I got *dropped* from the job due to... well, office politics and bull, quite frankly. I fought hard to get my job back and met up with countless city officials, but nothing really got done. Then, I started training as a firefighter, just to find out that the city had an epiphany and realized they had no money, so they could not hire any new firefighters!

Now, I am trying to find another temp job and am working for myself doing freelance web design and computer repairs in the meantime.

I really didn't have much time to go online and I didn't want to be a downer due to all the crap I was going through.

Here's a HUGE :hug: to all of you... I'm touched, warm, and fuzzy :hug:

See, I think 3FChickees are mentally joined by a common bond - I was just yesterday thinking I hoped everything was OK with Shane and came today to search for her posts to see if I'd just been missing them :D

Sorry you've been having to deal with so many challenges Shane but glad to see you back :hug:
