Before: 265 lbs
In Progress: 200 lbs
Height: 5'3



For fun I took an "In-Progress" photo yesterday. The reason I did it is because NO ONE (except my mom, but that's what mom's are for) have commented on my weight loss. I was beginning to think I had lost invisible fat or something. I mean the scale and measuring tape say I have shrunk, but clearly it's not visible to the naked eye or else at least ONE of my coworkers (who are all doctors and therefore should be cognizant of changes in the human body) would have said something. So I took a pic. I do think (thankfully!) there is some change after 65 pounds down. It's motivation to keep going.

Obviously, I am still obese in my in-progress photo (the one with the pink shirt). I am not anywhere near my final goal, but at least there is some improvement. As you can see (especially from my before pic) my tummy is my trouble zone. I am working my poor abs like crazy, trynna flatten all that fluff down. In time, I suppose, in time!!!

Holy guacamole! You look transformed! I think people just don't feel comfortable with the subject....or maybe if they see you every day, it's less of a wow, but really, you look ahhhhmazing!!!! CONGRATS!!!!!

Great job. You look fantastic. I can't wait to see what you will look like when you do achieve your FINAL goal! You're half way there & that's awesome! Congrats! :carrot::carrot:

Yeah, there's TOTAL change!!! Congrats you look great!! People that see you every day are just less aware. I teach high school... kids that I've had previous years are SHOCKED when they see me now. Kids I had all year long were SHOCKED when I told how much I'd lost. That said, your transformation is definitely noticable and it's sad that no one in a medical profession would say anything. So, we'll tell you here! You are totally rocking it! Definitely can tell! :D

my in-progress photo (the one with the pink shirt)

Haha, you DON'T have to say which one is the 'now' picture - it's a pretty obvious difference, even if your clueless coworkers haven't said anything! You look great!

They may just be afraid of saying anything in case they offend your or something. Nobody could fail to notice that change. You look great!

I have to say again that I am in awe of what you have done.
I followed the link to your pic from the PCOS board, and your picture has inspired me more than any other I have ever seen.

I have the same body shape right now . . . that you have in your "before" pic. My belly sticks out more than my chest and I feel so unlady like! I have never been able to imagine that belly of mine going down, and to see yours gives me so much hope. You look absolutely AMAZING!

Thanks so much for sharing you have made an immense difference in my outlook for the future.

Man that's a HUGE difference! Your coworkers are probably just nervous about bringing it up but there's definitely a difference there, you look great! Congrats and keep up the good work!!

WOW! That's an amazing difference. I am sure that people all around you have noticed by now. Probably one day soon someone will be brave enough to congratulate you (as everyone else says, people are always afraid of offending or saying the wrong thing), and then everyone else will chime in, saying they noticed, too... :) Congrats on all your great work.

Thanks everyone for your kind and encouraging words!!

I thought I'd add another picture. This one the difference doesn't look as dramatic to me. Obviously in the "in-progress" picture I am still obese, but my shape is improving (mainly from weight lifting). I don't think I have to say which person is me in the before picture LOL. The person on the right is also overweight (5'7, 175 lbs) but compared to me she looks SKINNEH. haha!
