Anybody in the group willing to share some before and afters from their weight loss journeys and share with us how you met your goals (or exceeded them)?

Or, if you dont have an after yet, are you willing to post a before and discuss ways you could go about reaching your goals?

Here are a few pics from my journey!!!


I would like to say that not only am I feeling more energetic and confident, but I have truly learned the meaning of being healthy and in shape. I am not as stressed (even during stressful situations), I have enough energy to outlast my kids, I no longer need an inhaler, I stand taller and speak louder (my confidence has skyrocketed), and I have a much more positive attitude about life in general since I learned more about living a healthy lifestyle.

Way to go!  You look great.  Unfortunately, I don't have pictures of my journey as I am normally on the wrong side of the camera.... Let's see what I can scare up.... Off to search the archives of my computer.

I know exactly what you mean. Finding "full-body" before shots was especially difficult for me!

It's not an after because I'm still at it, but this is a difference of about 80 lbs. I just changed my eating habits and exercise regularly. I'm far from my "ideal" weight still, but feel soooooooo much better already.

We all start somewhere! I had no progress pics and a lot of "I'm going to" or "I started to"s with no follow through.

I remember laying in bed one night & not being able to get comfortable because I was so overweight that I literally felt like my lungs were going to collapse. My asthma had gotten so bad that I had to use my nebulizer every night. I barely went out in public because I felt so bsd about myself, and I couldn't hardly play with my oldest son because every bit of energy I did have went to caring for my baby. I started working out about a week later. I didn't eat right though until about 6 months in when I wasn't getting the progress I was hoping for.

Have you thought about what you can do yo change your life? Have you developed a plan?
