I've been lurking/posting on the 3FatChicks forums for awhile now, but I've never posted any pictures of me before/after my healthy lifestyle change. So...here I am!:carrot:

These aren't the best quality of pictures to show the change in my body, but they are all I can offer for now!:cool:

The first picture was probably at my highest weight...and the second one wasn't much lower. Then, the last two are at my current weight. In the first picture, I was also only about 19 or 20, and the last two, I'm 22. The members of my family have a habit of maturing during their early/mid 20's, so some of what you see in the earlier pictures is baby fat.

BUT I'm very proud of how far I've come:):dizzy:

That is a great accomplishment! Because you're young, people that meet you now probably can't imagine that you ever had to lose weight. You hair is so cute, too!

Thank you to everyone who commented! I realized after I posted that the picture didn't turn out the best quality...I just converted a bitmap into a jpeg. Oh well:)

Tracy - That's cool! What part of Edmonton?

It's hard to sum up how I lost the weight, but it can turn into a pretty big story. I'm in the process of writing a document (for lack of a better word, I don't know what I'm going to turn it into - maybe an ebook) full of advice/tips that worked for me. But to make it short and sweet:

It took me about a year/two years. It was all about really embracing a healthy lifestyle change. I started eating/drinking really healthy, started working out, and I also went vegetarian (even though I still eat fish/seafood).

Good luck to all of you ladies on your goals:)

What eating plan have you followed to achieve such wonderful results?

I have been (for the first time in my life) on Weight Watchers for 5 weeks and have lost 15 lbs. and am very satisfied with the Points System.

You look as if you have lost more than indicated . . . much more !

BRAVO !!! It is the experiences such as yours that is keeping me on track.

Superb job 40lbs lost that is a wonderful achievement and you look great. Thanks for sharing your photographs here on 3fc and inspiring us all.

Look forward to reading your novel ;) of your weight loss journey. I love reading other posters here how they have done their weight loss and the hurdles along the way. I am the worse person in the world to advice you how to shorten your own story. This is because I tend to use 100 words when 10 would have done the job quite well :o

Penelope,
Thanks girl so much for sharing! You have totally inspired me. I've been at 160 lbs and currently am around 140. My goal is to be at the weight you are right now. Seeing pictures just makes me realize that it is possible!

thanks!:hug:
