S/C/G: 188/ticker/135

Height: 5'5"

Default 40 lb lost! Photo time... (lots!) updated Sep/11

My story is already in the goal thread, but I thought I'd post the pictures in the photo album!

(188 lb, 39.6% body fat)

I haven't looked at these pictures in a long time, and WOW. That was some pretty strong denial going on.

(148 lb, ~24% body fat)

Still have some curves, which is fine by me! October 2007.

Me being a dork for the camera. This one was at 151 lb and 26% bodyfat; I've lost since then so this isn't a final photo, but this picture was a huge ego-boost for me because I could actually see a bit of muscle definition coming in! August 2007.

It's nice to look at a picture and feel like I would blend into a crowd, size-wise. September 2007.

Happy because I have a chin again! Hallowe'en 2007... And oh, wow! I didn't feel the need to crop the picture halfway through my arm like I used to always do to make me look skinnier!

...and again, Hallowe'en. I think this is my favourite picture of myself of all time. Never thought I'd be saying that about a new picture!

Now, on to maintaining & continued toning, woo... 3FC, it all happened because of you!

EDIT: It's been awhile since I updated, and I'm 6 lb lower (and 4 years older!) than I was in the last photos, so I figured I'd drop in and give an update. I'm working my way toward a lower goal this time, 135 lb instead of 148 lb, where I maintained for a few years.

My husband and I celebrate our first anniversary. Isn't he handsome? I was ~144 lb here.

And, this one is from the other day, at 142 lb, 22% body fat, flexin' my abs in an oh-so-natural way :P

Can't wait to post an update once I reach my new goal!

Thanks so much for the continuing inspiration, 3FC!! You all rock!

What an amazing time line of photos!

Wow, your face changed so much over 40 pounds -- you still have those adorable dimples but what happened to the chubby cheeks? They're gone! And with your beautiful eyes, you honestly look like a model now.

Congratulations again on your fantastic achievement. After seeing your photos, I definitely agree that you made the right decision to call "goal" now and join us in the Wonderful World of Maintenance.

We're so proud of you!!

WHOA, you are SO beautiful!! is that guy your boyfriend? if so, he is beautiful, too! I'm actually amazed at how slim you look at 151 pounds - I'm almost 2 inches taller than you and I looked MUCH fatter at that weight

Good work. And once again, you are GORGEOUS

Wow. You look amazing!!!

And you do look very slim at a weight I look heavy at (I'm roughly 5'5"). Do you do a lot of weights?

Awesome job!! Keep up the work.

S/C/G: Maintaining 142-148

Height: 5 ft 8.5" athlete who can give a punch & certainly take one too! :)


You look fit & fabulous! Glad you decided to maintain because this weight looks ideal for your body type, an athletic build suits you to a T. Killer curves are essential for a woman and I wouldn't be without mine either. Work it girl, because you have got it going on! You are simply stunning.....
