Progress Photos!

So, I thought as I've hit my 35 pounds lost mark, and am embarking on a new challenge (100 days!) that I should update everyone on some progress photos.

Remember my initial shots:


And here are my pre-lent shots:


And here is me today!


Side by side 24 pound loss (size 16 jeans, way too baggy now!):

Yahooo. You've got to feel great about that. Like you always tell me, Jenny, just keep a healthy balance in your food consumption and the life-style will be something you'll be able to maintain in the end.

Congratulations on the progress! The weight loss makes your posture look really good (or maybe that's self confidence bolstering you up? :-)

Hey you look greta and I hope you're having lots of success in your weight loss challenge. Check out my blog at beautifulmesses1.blogspot.com

Hey... you don't know me, but I'm going through the same thing you are. I gained I don't even know how much weight after being in a horrible accident that left me in a wheel chair for 9 months and then promptly getting pregnant when I got out of it. I finally decided to do something about it. I bought a book called "Skinny Chicks Don't Eat Salad." I am in love! I've lost 21 pounds in the past 5.5 weeks! I've also upped my physical exercise, which was hard with my injuries, by including a lot of swim time. Swimming is THE best exercise: completely no impact on all of your joints, works EVERY muscle in your body, and has a VERY high calorie burn off rate per minute... (I did the math on a 45 minute swim session the other day... over 400 calories burned!).

Anywho, just wanted to give you the name of the book... It really helps. It teaches you how to eat RIGHT and how to balance your meals so that your blood sugar stays level which in turn ups your metabolism.... Good luck!!!

Great job on the weight loss, Im glad you were a blog of note as I need to start losing weight pronto. Managed to get down to a really nice size a year and a half ago then I went to uni :s oops. But im guna read through the rest of the blog and steal some tips. That is if you don't mind :)

Antoinette said...

You look GREAT...and I agree with the previous poster. The "ex" in your blog title is completely off base. You're gorgeous!

I'm on my own weight loss journey, though I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to post pics on my blog.

You should check out Choosing2Lose.com. There's lots of support there and everyone is super friendly. :)

MeanDonnaJean said...

You GO girl! BIG congrats on the weight loss. My fat tired 53 year ol' ass hopes to someday follow in yer footsteps.....

Now, goin' strictly by yer "before 'n after" pics I gotta say this: ya must have THE BEST camera in the whole entire world cuz there's no way in hell ya look like ya EVER weighed anywhere NEAR 213 lbs. in that "before" shot.

If THAT'S what 213 pounds looks like then MY wide-ass load must be 513 pounds! ;-)

But sincerely, all the best to ya ~

howardroark said...

wow! keep up the good work!

Vegforaweek said...

Wow! lol
What did you look like way before all of this?

4wheeldrive said...

You look great and I believe you will achieve that goal.

I personally lost about 15 lbs the first year I joined a gym. My BMI is less, but I don't have any hard numbers. But my pants are baggier, so something's happening!

radha said...

Veronica Marcetti Dimick said...

WOW! Great work!

I also applaud you for putting up your weight even though it is considered such a "big" number by people who don't understand that not everyone who weighs over 130 pounds looks like the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man. Thank you!!

Also, I know people have already commented on this, but DANG GIRL! Love the badonkadonk!! I want to get mine back to looking like that!! :)
