Talking 20 lbs does make a difference (pics)

As someone with a total of 165 lbs to get off, I didn't expect to see ANY changes at my first 20. I was thinking it would be a drop in the ocean. I was pleasantly surprised to notice a subtle difference. I hope this motivates other people who are in the 100+ lbs to lose boat. Taking that before photo was SO HARD but I'm glad it did. I am re-motivated this morning.

Hope you all have a great and on track week!!

Hi Jolly,

You're reading my mind! I was just thinking that I can't "feel" when I'm losing weight and I ASSUMED that I can't see it either. I have a bit over 100 pounds to lose and have lost 6 but weigh tomorrow. This is really motivating. My physician's office took a before and I think I shut my eyes! What I notice about your picture is you are smaller all over. This is really fantastic. Thanks so much for sharing.

First off, you're right! Even for what might seem like a small fraction of your total goal, you've definitely made visible progress! Hurray for being less lumpy!

Have you been taking measurements too? I bet that would be another good way for you to be able to see your progress, since it looks like you've lost several inches already!

And second, hi to a fellow Iowan! I just moved to Boston from Ames.

Thanks all. I feel so much more symmetrical. Haha. And "lifted" . I'm going to be doing this about 7 more times, so woo!! I've always been such a big and tall girl, thought I was going to have to drop 40 or 50 before anyone would notice.

I've tried to take measurements. I always forget. I know that would be a great motivator too. Sometimes I don't feel like what the scale says reflects what is really going on.

PS Sorry I meant to post this in the pics forum, that's where I thought I was *.*

Congratulations on your loss! Twenty pounds makes a wonderful difference. I can really see it in your waist and hips.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting these pictures. Although I can feel that there's a difference after my 20 pound loss (and I have over 200 to lose, so I know what you mean about being able to tell a difference), my pictures this month versus last month didn't really show much difference. Of course, one set was taken with a loose blouse and slacks and one with a leotard so that may have made some difference!

Keep posting -- it keeps us all motivated!
