I started this journey in February 2009 at 190 (well atleast thats the highest number my mind would absorb) and now sit between 115 and 120. I had to find a picture to scan that someone else took because I normally didn't take any pics of myself for obvious reasons. Well here goes....I am the bleached blonde one....

Thank you all so much. The worst part of this, I never thought I looked fat. I always considered myself to be "chubby". Then mom gives me this picture and I about flipped. Its no wonder none of my co workers recognized me when I transferred to a different center after losing weight. But now here I sit at 45 and am amazed at how different I feel.

Oh heavens! I can't believe I am not the only one out there that never thought they were fat! I look in the mirror and don't see it. The pic in my avatar shocked me but one my mom took of me holding her dog had me stunned beyond belief!

I can see why they didn't recognize you. It really is a big change. No way do you look 45 btw! Share the awesome awesome skin secrets please!

Thanks! No skin secrets here thinnerbyjuly, its just heredity because I smoke, LOL Most people guess that I am in my mid 30's and I generally just let them think what they want :) Its funny because I always looked older when I was a teenager and now its the opposite. Last summer I ran into a girl from high school and she said I was lucky because I hadn't changed a bit (she needs glasses by now I'm sure.

Thanks losermom, I still think I look chubby most days. Mostly because my tummy sticks out a bit due to having 4 kids.............too bad I'm not rich or it would be cut off by now, LOL

I don't know why after seeing so many before and after shots, that I am STILL amazed at how different people look with excess weight on them. It's just - mind boggling.

You in particular look absolutely PHENOMENAL. Just stunning. So much lighter, bouncier, younger, confident, happier and healthier. Congratulations!

Thank you! My nickname used to be Tigger cause I am always bouncy! I agree about how different people look without the weight. Its truly amazing to see the goal photos. I was so inspired by them. Merry Christmas!

Thank you! I lost weight by cutting out bread, sugar, rice, pasta and most carbs. The biggest issue for me was candy and fast food. I had to go cold turkey here or I would never have lost weight. I would like to say I exercised, but I didn't do much of that, LOL I have learned to love vegetables (they are fantastic if you cook them in butter with garlic or other spices). I also eat meat, cheese, eggs and nuts on a regular basis. No real diet "plan" here. I find that when I count carbs or calories I tend to lie to myself about how many of each I am eating.

12-26-2009, 07:36 PM
That sounds so much like me...I love sweets. I also cut carbs and sugar and I'm down 19 pounds, with many more to go. It's just wonderful to see it can be done...it definitely keeps me motivated. Thanks so much and happy new year! :hug:

Wow - you look amazing and inspired me to get off my butt to get to the gym. I am going about it like you, cutting out all the unhealthy carbs and keeping within a range of calories - and off my butt to the gym I go. If I work out, I eat better.

Thanks so much for this!

Wow, what a difference! You almost look like a different person!

Congratulations! Isn't it fabulous to finally feel normal again? I can't even describe how wonderful it feels, to be honest. It is SUCH a relief for me. I was truly getting scared for my health, not to mention the hit I took to my self-esteem. It's like a new lease on life, isn't it?

One of the best things is that now I actually go to all family functions instead of trying to avoid and get out of them. I don't have to go through major stress every time I'm invited to something.

This is an example of a picture communicating solid inspiration. You look fabulous! I can only imagine how great you must be feeling. Thank you for sharing this good news.

TamiL, Like you, I've found I feel better and tend to lose weight more easily when limiting or avoiding heavy carbs altogether - particularly sugar and most grains.

Your post is just what I needed to read today.

Keep up the good work,

I love skinny jeans, yet haven't been able to wear them in forever. I'm pretty short, 5'2" so they always looked good when I was thin. You should definitely rock the skinny jeans, especially if you feel confident enough to do it.

Thank you :) Yes, I do feel amazing right now. I have gained back a few pounds over the last few months and am at a happy place with myself. I had gotten into a mindset that just a few more pounds and I'll look better. The terrible truth is, I didn't look better and the compliments started going negative. I decided to maintain my weight in the mid 120's because that is where my clothes fit best and my boobs look better, LOL Good luck to each of you on achieving your goals.....we can do this!!!
