i cant believe ive lost 50 lbs. it took me 10 months, and a lot of horrible plateaus, but as of today i have lost 51 lbs. since my goal (for now) is 70 lbs, for me, i always felt like when i hit 50, it would stop being a "diet" and start being a real life change.

i have absolutely NO pics of myself at 220, but i think this is 205-ish. i gained a few after this.


today (excuse the no makeup and hair grossness)
the sad thing is, i dont see THAT much difference, lol, but i guess we are our own harshest critics.

thanks for all your help 3fc!!

Julia, you look fantastic! Congrats and thank you so much for sharing :hug:

12-01-2009, 07:59 PM
Give it maybe 10 more lbs and you should notice a big difference. The same was true with me after my first 20. It didn't quite look like what I thought it would. But once I lost a few more, other people were actually noticing. It is weird how it happens that way. At first, they all kept commenting on my "new" hair. I had not done one thing different with my hair, LOL.

You look fantastic and keep up the good work!

12-01-2009, 08:22 PM
awwww thanks so much for the encouragement everyone! my husband said im crazy too, i guess we all just love to criticize ourselves.

thanks for all your help! i couldnt have done it without you guys.

12-01-2009, 08:58 PM
You look so great! Those 50 lbs made a huge difference, but you're right, we are our own worst critics.

12-01-2009, 09:40 PM

12-01-2009, 10:21 PM
What?! You can't see the difference?! I sure can! Although, I admit I have the exact same issue when it comes to my own weight loss.

You look absolutely terrific. Congratulations on reaching this milestone!

Whaaat? It's a big difference! You look great! I bet if you tried on a cute dress or something, you'd realize how far you've come and how great you look (I only say this, b/c that's what I have to do sometimes when I'm losing). Congrats~!

That's wonderful, Julia!!! You can definitely tell. And FYI I am also from STL!

The difference is so obvious - not only have you lost the pounds but also so many inches, too - and you're that much closer to your goal - how great is that?!:woohoo:

You look fantastic - if you're that pretty without make-up and a do, I can't wait to see another "after" picture with you all dolled up - you must be a knockout!

Thanks for sharing - it's wonderful to see the living proof of all your hard work and determination - you're getting it done!

Julia, you look awesome girl. And fifty pounds? Wow, that is something!

12-12-2009, 10:50 PM
Julia, losing 50 lbs is no small feat. My doctor asked me if I'd visited Dr Bauman (the known weight loss surgeon in town) because it's been his experience that people may lose 10-20 lbs but to drop 50 and keep it off is remarkable. I've lost 56 so far so I know where you're coming from.

Keep up the great work and take it one pound at a time.

12-12-2009, 11:00 PM
I definitely see a difference you look good!!! Fantastic job,keep up the amazing work and thanks for the pictures they provide me with such inspiration :D
