Awesome! Look at your curves in the current picture! I get so jealous of people with their before pictures. Everyone told me to take them but I was too embarrassed and scared I would never lose a pound.

Great post!

I wanted to say to all of you how much your kind words truly mean to me, In the past when anyone (especially strangers) commented on my weight or how I looked it was always less then positive (sometimes even down right cruel). Having nice things said like you all did even when I have far still to go makes me feel great!! Thank you each so much. :hug: :hug: :hug:

I didn't know where to write this so I searched for one of your personal posts. :)

I lurk on the IP threads as I am fascinated by the progress you all have over there but I try not to invade them with my comments.

I read today that your boss thought you were new staff when she walked by you and just wanted to say HIGH FIVE!!!! :high:You have done awesome and seeing your pictures and posts helps me stay on track and try to get to be as thin as you!! I hope your family is just as shocked as your boss, they are going to be so proud!

I hope you don't mind I posted this here, I can edit it and delete it if you want me to. I just wanted to say congrats and you look amazing!

I do not mind at all, that made my day!! :hug: Thank you so much! That is why I put the pictures out there to help motivate anyone who was where I was not knowing what to do, if it was even possible to lose the weight, or where to start. I want people to see it is possible, we don't have to be perfect or kill ourselves exercising or starve ourselves to reach our goals. I also wanted other to know they are not alone in there weight loss struggles as well as all of life's struggles. Again this made my day Thank you!! - Monica

Looking good!!! (I saw your pic on the "what are you wearing" thread, when I click the link here it brings me back to this thread? I'm all mixed up!)

I love dressing up now that I am thinner (who wears random skirts and dressy shoes? I do!). I can't imagine what I'll do when I'm down to your weight!! I'm following your progress and following in your footsteps!!

I highly recommend comparison photo's even if they are just for yourself at home. We see ourselves every day, and because of that the change (at least for me) felt much more slow then what people were seeing. With the photo's you can really see the difference. I use them as motivation for myself and thankfully they have also been motivation for others ( just as other people's photos motivated me in the beginning. Will be look for yours in the future :hug:

lazylioness
05-31-2013, 01:05 AM
Yeah, I totally am going to do it. The picture on my profile was taken almost 5 years ago, and I am more or less where I was then. If I remember correctly, I was about 7-10 lbs lighter, but lets be honest, at 250+ lbs, 7-10 is not much visually. I also have my wedding pictures that were probably about 7-10 lbs under my highest. So I do have a sort if visual representation, but yeah. Inward actual progress pictures.

What increment do you recommend? Every 20 lbs? Every month? More? Less?

MonicaKolesnik
05-31-2013, 08:08 AM
Take photos at whatever weight loss you want, I did not start showing them publicly till I was 50 lbs down but I had comparisons way before that. Do whatever helps motivate you and take the weightloss 10lbs at a time. I loved that I was as excited to get to the 260's as I was to get into the 160's. For me thinking about the whole goal or the entire time I would have to be on this diet was to much but a bunch of mini goals were manageable.

But again you do whatever motivates you the best through your weightloss journey. :hug:

MonicaKolesnik
06-19-2013, 03:37 PM
Changed all my comparison photo's today to reflect my current losses. Hope you like them :)

These before and after photographs are so INSPIRING! I look at the before and I see me, except that I am not brave enough to let a camera near me.

Then I look at the after and I try to visualize myself at the weight that I want to be, using the after photos as a guide...I can see that I will have a waist again, that my face will slim down, and that my smile will come back.

So thank you to all who post the before and after. It makes this journey more believable and something I can do.
