100 lb. Club - Watch Me Lose 100 Pounds in Seconds!
05-31-2010, 04:39 AM
I thought I'd long lost some "before" pictures that were taken in a green shirt, but luckily I found them on an old hard drive last night. And today I thought I'd make a morph comparison with my TOPS "before" pictures, which are my most recent front and side view photos (I've obviously lost quite a bit before joining TOPS!) :lol:
Anyway, on with the photos . . . there's about a 100 pound difference here.
I didn't want to cut off the feet but that's what my friend who took the old photos did. :lol:
It's very interesting (and almost a little scary) to watch my shape change like that. :eek: I keep trying to imagine it getting even smaller though as I've got a ways to go. ;)

Wow, the incredible shrinking Sirenity!
That's a great morph and the loss is sure something to be proud of! Just imagine the one you can make 100 pounds from now.

congratulations to you - you look great! Keep it up.
And the photo morphing is very neat.

morphing thing kinda the coolest thing ever! good for you girlie :D
Congratulations for all your hard work & your tenacity & consistency. I hope that you are a little amazed at your outstanding job at your weight loss project. You should be -- you've done something fantastic.
Now, I must confess, my friend, these pictures freak me out a little. All I can think of is doing the yoga breath during classes: "Inhale. Exhale."
Also, I swear I can see your beautiful hair growing longer, too.
And isn't it amazing where weight comes off? I'm fascinated by the change in your face. But I think your loss is completely proportionate, which actually might have made it harder for friends & coworkers & etc. to perceive as it happened more gradually than in these pictures.
Out of curiosity, has this helped you with being able to see yourself at your current weight, instead of your old weight, or do you have the body dysmorphia issue like a lot of us do?
Finally, can I say I'm impressed by your image skills, to be able to do this morphing thing?

the morphing did make me feel a little motion sick, ha. it's really intersting. a very concrete way to see the physical changes you've made.

The weight loss is awesome. The morphing is awesome. I can definitely see that your hair is also healthier now. Congrats! I can't wait to see you do a morphing thing once you get to goal.
05-31-2010, 03:36 PM
That's amazing! Both the weight loss and the technology (the weight loss more though, of course!)
I love how your head turns to the viewer at your lower weight. All sassy and confident!

That has got to be the most concrete vision of the 100 lb change I've ever seen. Wow!
It's amazing how different you look.
05-31-2010, 10:15 PM

Thanks everyone! It's just been something very difficult for me to see objectively, especially since the process has been so slow. Even when I first rediscovered those photos with the green shirt, photos I literaly hadn't seen in years, my initial thought was, "Wow, was I really that big back then?" :eek: which quickly traded off as to "Wow, do I really look much different now?" when I compared them to the newer ones. :?:
I mean, I know there's a difference, but placing the photos side by side really didn't register to me, probably because it really is so hard to see ourselves objectively. :dizzy: My boyfriend immediately recognized the change as enormous, and I'm guessing it was especially obvious since he'd never seen me that big in real life and has only seen me lose the last 35 pounds or so. I could see the difference a little easier when I matched up the size of the images, overlapped them directly, and toggled back and forth, but somehow it was the morphing that really made all the changes "see-able" in my mind and actually made them sink in. And I'll agree it's sort of quease-inducing, lol . . . I really can't imagine the fat expanding and contracting like that as it really does, just that it happens much different rate. :lol:
I did the morphing with a program called Fantamorph, something I'd played with a while back on my banner when I got the free trial version; since I now have the full version and can try more with it. It's pretty simple actually, the before and after photos are placed separately on the screen, you line up added dots to match the corresponding points on the images and the program does the rest. Um, and if I made that confusing, it's really simpler than it sounds. More info can be found on their page, just google the program's name. ;)
Heh heh, and it seems I've always liked fairies. :D And wow, I guess I hadn't given much though to how much healthier my hair is now. :eek:
06-01-2010, 03:32 PM
Too cool!! I love it! I'm so impressed with what you have done...in so many ways! LOL!
06-01-2010, 03:44 PM
Heyyy, that's pretty cool! What a great job you've done!
06-01-2010, 03:44 PM
What an amazing difference!! Keep up the good work :)
06-01-2010, 03:50 PM
AWESOME!! You inspire me!
06-01-2010, 03:58 PM
That really drives home what an amazing accomplishment 100 lbs is!! Congratulations!!
And the morphing is just so very cool. Thanks for the mention of the software. I have bookmarked it and will purchase it later for my own 100 lb morph! :)
06-01-2010, 11:17 PM
You look great!!! That effect is cool too.
06-01-2010, 11:38 PM
Wow!! What a remarkable change ;D A job very well done.
06-02-2010, 12:44 AM
That has to be all the motivation you ever need looking at that
06-02-2010, 02:24 PM
I LOVE the way your side view self, turns to look at us as you evolve!!

06-02-2010, 02:50 PM
