Weightloss Progress....A story in pictures

I hope this is not getting too personal, but did you notice any mental transformations as well?

Anyway, thanks for sharing! I am excited to do the strength training program with you.

I hated the weight, how it made me feel trapped in my own body, but I still LIKED NCC at the end of the day. I think a lot of overweight people don't like themselves and it manifests itself in how they carry and present themselves. I wasn't about to be a wall flower just because I was the fat chick.

Hope that answers your question and I'm looking forward to the weight program too! I want muscles (well nice lady muscles)

That process taught me to gauge my mental status better and reevaluate what I think is possible emotionally and physically. It's difficult to articulate but I felt like I grew from it. I was wondering if anything like that happened for you?

Wow wow wow!!!

You look simply amazing, NCC!! I am amazed and inspired by your stellar accomplishment.

Not only are you so much smaller and fitter, but you just look so much happier and radiant. And younger, too, even!

Did I miss where you said what diet program you did to lose the weight?


I love the colors of your dining room, btw...gorgeous!)
I noticed and was admiring your walls, too. Great colors!

I see what you mean. I'm sort of in the middle of that process I think. Before, working out was very mentally frustrating. I've never really had a problem pushing myself in the gym, but what would always happen was that mentally I wanted to push way more than my body was capable of doing and I would end up with some injury and frustrated. At 300+ pounds, even walking puts so much strain on your joints, knees, back you name it. Looking back on it, I can't fathom how I managed to move as much as I did with that amount of weight on my body. So loosing the weight and being able to push my body to the level that mentally I always wanted to do is such a freeing feeling.

Now, I'm just to the point where my trainer wants to push even farther than I thought I could go (which is why I hired him)...and I'm starting to see that I CAN do things. So I'm just at the beginning of that mental awaking you're talking about...but I'm looking forward to what I might learn about myself.

So u lost 68 pounds in 3 months??? Well 13 weeks
I'm in my beginning stages too. Doing the weight training program will definitely be a new challenge for me. I haven't lifted that much before.
I wish I could lose weight! I'm 44 years old, and the baby fat never seems to want to come off.

You are my SHEro Very inspirational!!! Congratulations!
Soooooo inspiring NCC!! You are awesome and you've accomplished so much! You are really motivating me to step up my weight training game. I'm starting to get lazy and bored with my toning routine, but I really think I should stay with it.

I just want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.
Wow! You've done brilliantly! I actually think you look good in all the photos, and reading your comment about loving yourself even before the weightloss started, I think that's what's shining through the photos.
The second to last photo with the beige jumper is my favourite. You look goooooood! (*in smooth, deep voice* ) *high-5s you*
My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

Congrats NCC! You look amazing!

As usual, I'm late to the par-tay..lol
You look stunning, girl!
I can def see the sense of happiness/accomplishment/etc in your face. You have a beautiful smile!
And, yes, I'm loving the paint in your place. Seeing as we found out we have termites in our dining room I'd like to know what paint you used...love the stunning contrast...
I have accent walls in my house and cranberry is one of them, tho I never would have thought to make that contrast.
I have a deep blue in my dining room, but as I said, I'm worried what will happen after the termites. I have only below the chair railing painted, but that combo would go great in my DR!
Keep up the awesome work!
btw...who are the Rattlers? lol
And I had no idea you were only 21...
Code:
not that there is anything
wrong w/ that!

Lol...thanks wily E.

The paint is all home-depot, eggshell finish with the primer mixed in. The reddish color is called burnt brick I believe and the golden color is called rye.

The Rattlers are the mascot for my college...Florida A&M University. My family has gone there for generations and my parents met there as students.
