Default So, I posted some pictures today...

...and I discovered that I'm having a little bit of trouble seeing anything different.

My friends have been asking for pictures of my weight change. So today I dug out a picture from last July (when we were on vacation, and I came to the realization that That Body Was Not My Body, which sparked my exercise and diet change) and one from today. They're on my blog, here.

I know that these are not the best pictures in the world. I'm hiding behind my kids in one, I'm not wearing similar clothes, I'm not in the same pose, etc., etc.

But I don't see any difference. There's about 32 pounds of difference there, and I know I feel it -- I don't want to go back to the way I looked or felt then. But I don't really see it in these pix.

I can definitely see the difference, Diane! Your face, your arms, your chest ... all the non-hidden parts. So I assume the difference in the rest of you is probably even greater!

Congratulations on your loss so far--you look GREAT. And you're making excellent progress against your mileage goal, too, I see.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Gettin' Lean in 2015!

There is a HUGE difference through your hip area especially, those saddlebags are COMPLETELY GONE. You look so trim and fit. I bet if you could see your arms/waist, there would be a similar change. Your face also looks leaner...

Go girl! Good stuff.

Itís never too late to be whoever you want to be. Thereís no time limit, start whenever you want, you can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that stop you. I hope you feel things that you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life that youíre proud of and if you find that youíre not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.

I can definitely see a difference...even with the long sleeve shirt on in the second picture, I can even tells that your arms are more fit and trim. Keep up the great job!

It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not.

There is a big difference! You are much leaner and sleeker looking now. I felt the same way about my pics. Sometimes it just takes an outside opinion. You look great!

Yes, I've had several friends ask me, "Are you HIGH?" (Not an exact quote.) But it is hard for me to see. Maybe if I put a blue circle over the face, so I don't see that it's ME...

I can see a difference. Your face is definitely thinner and while it is hard to see your body in the first pic the second one you definitely look more toned up.

If your friends see you everyday the change is so gradual they won't see it. You won't see it either because you see your self in the mirror or reflections all the time.

I have lost 50 pounds and I swear I can't see a difference in the mirror but many friends that I don't see much like only a few times a year all notice I have lost weight but I for the life of me cannot see it when I look in the mirror.

Take my word for it I don't have a reason to lie to you, you look more fit!

The first thing I noticed was your arms... it's kinda hard to tell in the second picture, but I think they look A LOT smaller!

I can also see it in your face and neck, and I'm betting your legs didn't look that lean and muscular before. Actually, your legs look just like mine did when I got near my goal weight once before... and it's giving me some extra motivation now to get back there.

You gotta be kidding me. I can completely tell the difference and I don't lie when it comes to weight!!!
