Goal Photo Album - Zelma's Before and After pics




View Full Version : Zelma's Before and After pics

I don't think I've posted these as 'goal' photos before, because I had always thought I would lose a little more. But for the moment, my body just seems to want to sit at this weight, so I think I'll settle for that. I do have a bit of loose skin (thank you for sharing Zelma), so that probably makes up for a little bit of the 'excess' weight I feel as though I'm carrying.

Anyway... I hope these work out...

I didn't think I needed to name them "before" and "after".

I have more pics on the link below my tracker, as well as a link to a PDF document about how I lost my weight.

Take care all,

Zelma

It's hard to imagine that you are the same person Zelma! I know personally with this journey, that in more ways than one, we aren't the same person. So many changes and lessons along the way. It's an endeavor that changes you.

Many congrats! You've accomplished that which many haven't and are where they want to be themselves. You're an inspiration!

That's fantastic... I have a question, and I hope I'm not being rude... but it's something that's on my mind as I shrink my size. What do you do with the left over skin? Did you have any or did regular exercise tone that up with the body? I'm afraid of having a curtain dangling...lol Your an inspiration!

May I be another to ask a nosey question?

First, WOOOO HOOOO! Between you and Meg, geeez! Wowza!

Sounds like your DH was supportive. Was it difficult at first? Mine says he wants to be, but when I'm in the kitchen, he'll come in and take over. The next thing I know, there's butter in stuff or he's adding some sort of fat.

You look so beautiful! I read your story, but you didn't mention anything about what your family said. (Jodie was a Godsend for you).

If I'm being too nosey, please tell me to go away and I'll go crying to my corner.

ZedAus
12-01-2006, 04:32 AM
Thank you all for your wonderful comments. I feel SO great when I read through them. It is still sometimes hard to believe that I made it, let alone kept the weight off for more than 9 months. Well... a few pounds crept back on over winter (and due to hormones being messed around) but I am confident that they will come back off. I am still doing all the right things, so I don't have any fear that I will regain the weight.

Mare - You asked about supportive husbands. Well, mine has been thoroughly supportive throughout my entire journey. He has never pushed me to do anything about my weight, but has supported me while I have been changing my lifestyle. He was VERY good in the beginning, and ate mostly what I ate, which caused him to lose too much weight, so he is eating differently now, but that doesn't matter so much now, as I don't even WANT what he is eating. I don't know who does the grocery shopping in your house, but if it is YOU, then you may be better off not even having the fats and butter in the house for hubby to use in the cooking. We haven't had any kind of butter or margerine on foods for YEARS, and don't miss it one little bit. We don't cook with salt at all and we use oils rarely. I'm sure you have tried talking with hubby about this, and I don't have any great suggestions for getting him to stop 'sabotaging' your weight loss.
Most of my family haven't seen me since I lost weight. Well, they haven't seen me in real life. I think they have seen me on TV when I have been in a few current affairs shows or the news. My parents are really proud of what I have done and I have had a few emails from uncles and cousins who are really impressed. I am hoping to see my siblings and their families over the holidays, and I am looking forward to seeing the looks on their faces. When I saw my brother at the end of last year he was pretty much dumbstruck. I LOVE getting that kind of reaction. My nephew just stood there and said "You've GOT to be kidding!"

Once again, thank you all for your incredible comments. I am sitting here with an enormous smile on my face as I remember the things that you have said. I am SO happy that I can be an inspiration to others now. It was seeing 'before and after' photos of other people that kept me motivated for a while there. It definitely shows you (as Lilion said) that it CAN be done.

Take care,

Zelma

Zelma- your story is fantastic and an inspiration. You will never know how many women's lives you will touch during thier struggles with weight. You should be very proud of your accomplishments. Not because you look wonderful (cause you do!!!) but because you set your mind to doing it and you stuck with it and then opened up your life to others to inspire them. You are the picture of a true hero.

I don't notice any excess skin from that picture alone although I know it's a problem for people. You are so pretty and vibrant looking and even though I don't know you I feel so proud you lost all this weight!

Hi Zelma:

Thank you for taking the time to post your success story. What an inspiration you are! You are very beautiful and I know you have worked very hard to get where you are. I would love to know how you stayed motivated during your weak moments.

I have struggled with my weight for the last 15 years. I had a horrible marriage and used food to cope with the dissapointments. I have weighed between 150 to 225. I'm 218 right now and just signed up on the website. Hopefully, with motivating life stories like this it will help me reach my goal.

I just purchased a treadmill and am excited that I have it and scared that it will become a dust collector. I do walk at work with a couple women for 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes in the afternoon. I'm trying to add another 30 minutes on the treadmill three times a week and will work my way up to 6 days a week. You said you have cravings and that has been my problem too. Usually I get them somewhere around 7 - 10 pm. I like sugar, salt, and anything crunchy....like, cheetos, tortilla chips, etc. I do eat Breyer's Sugar Free Ice Cream, which I love, and sugar free chocolate pudding cups with 'Free' Cool Whip. I don't have a problem drinking water or sugar free decafinated iced tea to meet my daily fluid requirements.

I guess after my divorce I don't get out in the world too much. I work and go home to the television or read every evening. I do have very good friends, who are health concious and thin. They always ask me to do things with them but most of the time I find an excuse not to go. I guess what I'm doing is missing out on life. I don't want to date and don't want men to notice me since I've been married twice and both were unfaithful to me. I've moved on past that but I think I protect myself with the weight so men won't notice me. That's the only thing that still makes me a little nervous. I need to learn to move past that and begin living my life again.

Your story has certainly given me inspiration to try to move forward and win the yo-yo dieting that has caused me to be someone I don't even recognize anymore. I do love life and enjoy church, work, the ocean, and my friends.

All the best,

FemCadet

You seem like a fun, positive woman that was always fun to be around. I know it's like others have said, we notice our own "faults" and are much kinder to others. You have really encouraged me today. Thank you for being willing to put yourself out there.

Loved your blog, thank you for such great inspiration! You looked beautiful before and after - but it must be so wonderful to get to try your new looks. I think you are so on target about a real life-changing catalyst having to be in love with yourself and life (and not the opposite). It was also so inspirational to have you talk about how you got "back on the wagon" so to speak after sliding a little. Thank you so much for sharing!
