Amanda's Before and After
Realized I'd never posted in here - took some photos today to celebrate.

Let us start with BEFORES:



Drunken Halloween before...

And the scariest (note the stomach hanging out...)

OK, enough of that. Onto...some DURINGs:




A trial shot for the WW article...

And...to show off the new haircut, some as-of-today AFTERs:

You look so beautiful now and I would NEVER have guessed by looking at your after pictures that you were once obese.

You've come so far and have always been an inspiration to.. well.. all of us. :)

And your haircut is cute.

Wow! You look like a different person! Your face shape really changed, and I think the new haircut really suits you.

And for one thing that has nothing to do with weight loss, your kitchen is also amazing! Or at least the part of it in that picture. :lol: My parents recently got theirs redone and it looks a lot like yours but they have dark counter tops, but I like yours better. :sssh:

Amanda, you are SENSATIONAL!!!! Simply sensational. You are the picture of good health and fitness. You have much to be proud of.

And the best part of it, I know these pictures are going to inspire and motivate so many people to do something about their weight and become success stories like yourself. You have really shown people that YES - it CAN be done!

Wowza, I don't think I had realized that you had gotten that SMALL! You haven't posted any full body shots in a while! You look fantastic! Very inspiring.

And yeah, you need some photos in the goal section. This is where many of the new folks (and the not so new too) like to come for inspiration. They'll get plenty of it on this thread.

You look amazing! Like a totally new person, and that haircut is great! Congratulations!

Shane - it's funny, I'm actually carrying an extra 2-3 lbs from Christmas. Granted, I don't like them, but they did something strange to my face...took away that gaunt "I just lost weight" look. We'll see.

FitbyForty - thank you!

Colleen - I wish I could take credit for the kitchen! The whole Women's World thing went down while I was housesitting for friends of mine...I LOVE to housesit for them because they have such a gorgeous place.

Robin - that's why I like posting them (well, that and showing off the hair. I really dig the hair)...I hope that people realize it IS possible!

Tammy - I'm a size smaller than the most recent pics I posted (though the weight is about the same). Muscle rocks!

Mango - thank you! I (and I've seen this many places, so I know you hear it a lot) love your signature quote.

Wow. You look great!

You don't know me (yet), but I just had to reply to this. You are so beautiful! I love your new look and your new haircut. Great job!!! :hug:

You look fantastic! Thank you for sharing your pictures, I know that I personally would like to hide most of my high weight ones...

Your haircut is awesome, and lovely collarbones :) I'm looking forward to finding mine again.

mandalinn82 01-16-2008 01:54 PM

KT - thank you! :wel3fc:

Lyterae - once you get to goal, something shifts...you love those befores, because they show just how far you've come! And thank you for the haircut compliment!

junebug41 01-16-2008 02:04 PM

I know what you mean about the gaunt look, but I don't see it- you just look beautiful and healthy!
