View Full Version : Met my goal with pics!

I still have some toning I want to do but my goal was to lose 10 lbs. Since having my first child 9 years ago, it has seemed so unattainable for me. I could make the scale move a few lbs down by crash dieting or even the lemonade diet once (:( would NOT recommend that to my worst enemy now!) but the weight always came back and with a vengeance. I was "skinny fat" or so I thought. I topped out at 133 and for the most part was still "smallish" but felt awful.

I started working out in January, as I always do, and it usually lasts about 6 months until we go on our annual beach vacation, then I let myself go until the next January to start it all again. This year was different. I watched "fat sick and nearly dead" and "forks over knives". I decided then life couldn't be the same again. I became vegetarian 6 weeks ago and after stalling at 127 for 2 months, the weight started falling off. Coincidentally, mymom was also diagnosed with heart disease just 3 weeks ago which completely reconfirmed how important this has to be for me.

Today's weigh in I was at 122.8. I have dropped over 10 lbs, added muscle tone and feel great! I'm doing cardio as well as body pump. I also just started Jillian's 30 day shred. I'm on day 6 today. I have NEVER had muscular anything so these pics are astonishing to me. I didn't think I could really do it.

The first pic was taken June of last year, 2nd is March of this year, and the orange bikini is current.

I love how your entire body shape changed with those 10lbs. Congrats!!!!!!!!

Wow! It looks like you lost way more than 10 lbs! Way to go, what an inspiration. I am someone who has never been able to lose more than a pound or two at a time before my most recent attempt, so I can totally relate to your previous frustration.

:eek: WOW! You look amazing, way to go!

Thank you all so much! It really means the world to me. I guess I fall into that category where with clothes on most people can't really tell I've lost anything. So, unless I go around showing my bikini progression pics (lol which I'm not brave enough to do) nobody really notices how hard ive been working.

You look terrific and it motivates me even more to do this. I am in a similar situation. Weigh 135 and want to weigh 120. I am exercising and eating 12-1400 calories a day. Started at 140. Getting there. Good job and thanks for that extra push:)

You look great! I REALLY want to be able to wear a bright orange bikini one day :)

You look amazing. 10 lbs can really make a difference, especially on shorter people. I'm struggling to get the last 10-15 lbs off. I want to be able to wear a bright colored bathing suit one day. Good job.

Not sure if you are still active on here...but wondering where you made your avatars...I had found that site once...and now cannot. Thanks.

You looked wonderful before and you do now as well. :) I can't help to think though that from your "back" pictures that you seem to have lost your butt! haha. :P I guess that is the price we pay for losing weight. Butt and boobs go first!

Even though it was a smaller amount of weight loss than many on here, it is very inspiring and great to see what hard work can accomplish. You look fantastic!
