Hi, I reached my first mini goal. :carrot: Which is the 2teens! I am 219. I lost 25.4 lbs and 14 inches, in 1.5 months. I haven't felt better. The first pic was taken on Day 1, the second picture was taken on Day 40 (at that time a 22.8 lb loss) Excuse the messy head. LOL :)

Wowza, the difference in your face is astounding

Does the 2-teens feel great? For me, the best part of your pictures isn't just that you're slimmer.. but you look happier. Keep it up :)

Thank you so much, NEMom, Getting Right, whitelikechalk, ahyessophie, pinksparkles, and yoyoma! Congrats to all of you on your weightloss. GREAT job!

@ pinksparkles, Yes the 2teens feel great! I have so much energy now. I can't wait until onederland! :) Yes, I looked so unhappy in that first photo. I truly was! I haven't been this happy in a long time. One of the things that keeps me going. :)

Once again, thanks for all of the wonderful comments. I appreciate it. :)

Excellent comparison photos! You're looking good and doing great!

great job!!! You have done a great job in 40 days! What has been your biggest factor do you think???

08-23-2011, 05:18 PM
Way to go! I love a good side-by-side. It's awesome that you're smiling and are literally holding your head higher in the more recent pic. Keep up the great work!

You look Very good. I am 3 lbs from two teens away. But you look much better as you are younger. But I am happy with myself, as my face looks younger. I have actually attained the weight at my 44-45 years. Of course i do not look 45 as my hair has become grey and other signs of oldage. But my wrinkles on the face have reduced. I do not look 59 also.

You can really see it in your face! Great job!!!

Looking great! You can definitely see it in your face! Congrats and keep it up!

Thank you for all of the great comments, 2sw33t, Kelly585, Tuende, Puneri, Kurbain, and Mamaemj! :)

@Kelly585, I would have to say, working out religiously 6 days a week no matter what. If I am not able to do my workout routine in the morning, I have to do it before bed, no excuses or exceptions. My main priority is my health, I see it as my job. :)

@Tuende, It is funny you commented on that. LOL I laughed when I saw the two pics. Especially the look on my before pic. My life has changed so much in just over a month, in every aspect. I haven't been this happy in a long time. It feels amazing. :)

I hope everyone has a good day!

You can REALLY see it in your face.

Congrats again!!

I don't understand why so many so called chocolate lovers complain about the calories in chocolate,
when all true chocoholics know that it's a vegetable.
It comes from the cocoa bean.
Beans are veggies, 'nuff said.

@Tuende... My life has changed so much in just over a month, in every aspect. I haven't been this happy in a long time. It feels amazing. :)

That is so great to hear! I feel the same way- my life has changed a lot since I've started losing weight. For me, this journey has been about SO MUCH MORE than weight loss!

08-30-2011, 07:32 PM
You look great! Keep up the good work!
