Hi Nubby! The Ladies Who Lift forum has a little photo gallery here http://groups.msn.com/3FCLadiesWhoLift/shoebox.msnw
and if you scroll down, you'll see Meg's Album. I posted a bunch of before, during, and after pictures in it. And take some time and look at the other albums -- you'll see lots of amazing transformations taking place with the ladies who lift!
Yes, I did end up with some excess skin problems when I reached my goal weight. But they would have been far worse if I hadn't exercised while I was losing, I'm convinced. You really won't know how your skin will react until you reach your goal weight and maintain for a while. And it's a lot better to have excess skin than excess fat!
After you dust off the Crossbow, pop over to the LWL forum and say hi to everyone!
