I'm not quite done yet and I don't really like the after picture of me. I look so mean! But it's amazing the difference 70 lbs will make.

You ladies are great!

you look great getncontrol! Sometimes it is hard to imagine what i would look like 70 pounds lighter. Seeing all of your pictures helps me keep in mind that underneath all my excess, there's a skinny person wanting to come out!

lol! Thanks Yeah, now that I'm getting my weight back down I feel hot again. Today I even had a waitress in a restaraunt today say to me as I was leaving, "I was told to give this to you," and she handed me a napkin with a guy's name and phone number on it!! I thought it was hilarious, because I'll bet the guy didn't know I'm only 18 as today's a regular school day for most kids. Ha ha. It was a confidence boost, though!!

Getncontrol: WOW! Everyone here who's lost a significant amount of weight, you are truly inspiring. It must feel so weird to look at those old pictures! For me it is, too, and I didn't lose that much!! Congrats everyone <3

Awesome job! lol, we're both at the same weight right now. Just because you didn't lose 100 lbs like some people doesn't mean the results are any less stunning Congrats!

Aww, thanks Lessthansign3 and Teahoney!

And I agree, this was a great thread. It's nice to see that others are rocking their weight loss, that it can be done and that it's worth it at the end!

You are all looking great!

Here are my "work in progress" photos. So far I've lost 33 lbs. and still have a ways to go but I'm feeling lots better about my appearance and my feet don't hurt as much!

Before (in blue top) (about a year and half ago)


After (last Christmas)

http://animespoof.com/beforeafter/ - Those are mine from my first major weight loss. It feels good to realize I look so much better now and I didn't have to do much the first time. Rice and tofu will do that to you. I've lost only 13 lbs this time around so far so I look more like the top pictures in the "today" section now.
You are a really pretty and congrats on eating better (happy late birthday)! My 18th birthday is in July and I'm hoping to be around 200ish around then if I can. The part I like is that I don't look like as much as I weigh.. never have.

I think everyone on this thread has done a wonderful job and I love looking at these pictures. Tani! I was hoping to see a picture of you.. I've seen you around and you've done an amazing job! You guys motivate me even more.

Before - 192 lbs August 2004

After - 140 lbs March 2004

http://gloriana.myphotoalbum.com/vie...um02&id=after2

(those size 10 jeans I am wearing so proudly for the first time in that picture are so big I just gave them to Goodwill)

About 138 lbs June 2005

About 135 lbs September 2005

I weigh about 128 now and need to have some more pictures taken. It's hard for me after a lifetime of avoiding the camera to WANT pictures. I spent some time at Ann Taylor today trying on size 6 dresses - every one looked amazing and fit perfectly. I am constantly thrilled with my weight loss and completely inspired to just keep eating nothing but whole, healthy foods.
