Weightloss Progress....A story in pictures
 
As promised....here are pictures of my weightloss journey. I'm going to break these up into a few posts because I can't figure out how to resize the pictures to make them smaller.

First off....the dreaded before picture.

*Picture removed by user*

This was at the hotel as I was getting dressed for a close friends wedding July 4th weekend. I really didn't want to go to the wedding because I didn't feel attractive at ALL but I sucked it up and went.

This was 8 weeks into the process...at the MLK memorial dedication on 10/15/11. I was tired and funky after walking all over the national mall that day with my friends who were in town for the dedication.

11/7/12...down about 58 pounds and 11 weeks into the process.

13 weeks into this journey, Thanksgiving day to be exact. I was down about 68 pounds at this point.

Great job!!! Keep up the good work!!!! I am down 30 lbs myself. Trying for another 25.

PS, Love the Rattler sweatshirt. I attended 3 years, graduated elsewhere. I consider myself a Rattler though, especially since I was born at FAMU hospital. My sis did graduate from FAMU.

14 weeks...11/29/11...the 11th anniversary of my 21st birthday and down 70 pounds.

*Picture removed by user*

This was New Years Day as I was headed to the movies...down 82 pounds (half way to my first goal weight!!!)

This was around the time that I kinda stopped taking pictures. I'm not really sure why but I really couldn't see the changes that other people told me they could see and it was frustrating to me because the clothing sizes were not changing even though the scale showed a HUGE weight loss. Then I decided to get a trainer and add more weights to the cardio that I was doing and I saw a HUGE shift in things. Still didn't take pictures but I think I'm going to go back to taking pictures at least every 10-15 pounds just so I can see the differences.

Any finally....here's the picture I took today....specificly for this thread.

*Picture removed by user*

As of today, I'm down a total of 103 pounds and I have 60 pounds to go until my first "goal" weight. At that point I'll sort of access where I am and if I am happy with that weight/size. If not, then I'll keep going in 10-15 pound increments until I get to a weight/size that I'm comfortable at and that I can maintain with a "healthy" caloric intake and moderate exercise.

So...here are how the stats measure up

Starting BMI: 55.2
Current BMI: 39.5

Starting dress size: 24/26 (dress in before pic was a 24) Current: 18

Starting pant size: 26L,
Current: 18L

Starting bra size: 46DDD
Current: 42DD

Awwww...Thanks and congrats on your progress! Girl I am a Rattler through and through!!! I'm a 3rd generation graduate on my dad's side and a 5th generation graduate on my mom's side. My parents met there as students in the 60s so literally I BLEED orange and green!!!!

Post your pictures too juanab and anyone else that's losing weight.

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. :blob4:

Not quite sure what you mean but I'll try an answer. Mentally I've stayed pretty even I think and I credit most of that to who I was before. I know a lot of over weight people when they start losing weight they become much more confident, outgoing, assertive and take charge...but I was all those things before mostly because I liked me. 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)
