100 lb. Club - Progress Pics - So Far
01-17-2008, 05:36 AM
So going through my photos to create a progress album for myself I have to say I'm kind of disappointed by the results. Although I do see a difference (more so in my face than my body) for 70lbs lost it doesn't seem like a significant difference.
Anyway, the first photos is about 280lbs, the next 220lbs, the 3rd is at about 265lbs & the last is just last weekend at about 213lbs.

Gosh, I see a BIG difference! And what's more, you'll see an even bigger difference as you lose more from this point on. Congratulations! :cheer:

Wow! Very impressive results! You are MUCH trimmer in legs, hips, torso, belly, face!!! 70 lbs loss is awesome!
Keep up the excellent work!!!

Lifeguard, you are doing great! Your pictures aren't really the ideal ones for comparison as the full body one (265) is not standing straight like the 213 ones. So, you're really not seeing all of the changes. But, I'd like to share what I see on the last two photos. In the 265 pound one, you look a bit shlumpy and frumpy. On the last photo, you look more toned and energetic....and fabulous! I'm impressed.

I do see a big difference but I agree the pictures aren't ideal for looking at changes. The outfits are all so different and the poses don't show all your body in the first two, so you aren't seeing all of you as you began this journey. I think a full body shot at your higher weights next to your bathing suit shot now would show you the amazing progress you have made.
I do see the difference though, and a lot of it is in your confidence and your smile. You just look happier and like you're smile is more genuine in that last one. Just the way you hold yourself has changed so much...and you look amazing! You are very inspiring for me, so I hope you will see that and be inspired for yourself as well.

Wow, it is a big difference. It's amazing what a 50 pound drop can do? You're doing great now it's time to just finish this thing up. :)

Girl, I would be THRILLED to look like that!! :):)

I know it's hard to see the difference in yourself..because..well...that's just the way it is sometimes.
But, take it from me...WE can see the difference...very clearly.
Take a look at the first pic, and then the fourth...it's hard to tell it's even the same person!
You're doing an amazing job, and you are beautiful! :)

You look awesome :)
01-17-2008, 12:29 PM

Thank you everyone!!! I know these photos aren't the best for comparison but I don't have a lot of digital pics as I just got my own digital camera this year.
I had a tough night trying to sleep but had an opportunity to think about things. I think that the fact that I'm not seeing as dramatic a difference as I would like & that my motivation has been waning lately is all for the same reason. Years ago a weightloss specialist told me that 190lbs was the right weight for me. I've never been closer to that weight then I am now & it is blaringly obvious to me now that there is no way I will be content at 190lbs.
I think I always kind of knew that but had hoped I would be happy with my body at 190lbs.
So, I guess I'm just a little disappointed that I'm still a ways from my goal. Guess I'll need to spend some time evaluating what that goal will actually be.

You're disappointed? I saw the photos before I read the message and thought they were photos of different people...no kidding.
What fantastic progress!
01-17-2008, 03:07 PM
Get your eyes checked, girl! You look fabulous!
01-17-2008, 03:13 PM
You'd be surprised at how much difference a few pounds make as you get smaller. I think you look great!
01-17-2008, 03:41 PM
I think you look great! I definitely see a difference.
Try doing a pose that is very similar to your before shots, and you will see the difference.
01-17-2008, 05:16 PM
You look wonderful!!!!!!!!!
I agree with Rhonda and others on these pics...the personality and attitude you are portraying in the recent one is amazing! A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Thanks for sharing even if you're not feeling it. We do!

Honestly - as I sit here in frigid Iowa where we got six inches of snow last night and it's a whopping six degrees outside - you look gorgeous on that beach! Beach looks pretty darn good, too!
01-17-2008, 07:29 PM
Lifeguard, you are making fabulous progress. I can definitely see the difference. Keep up the good work... and you may be surprised at how much will have changed by the time you get to 190. I wouldn't spend too much time stressing about going lower until you see the results when you get there.
Keep us posted. You're looking GREAT!!
Congratulations! Keep on burning!
I also took 2 pics of myself when I started the diet a week ago. So I have the "before" pictures. I am so anxious to have also some "after" pictures...but I still have 11 pounds to loose before i will take the next set of pics...:(

You look wonderful! It's always hard to see a difference in yourself.
01-17-2008, 11:26 PM
Thank you so much everyone. I look forwardd to further changes in my body.
