Some pics of my transformation (25 more lbs to go)
Posted: Sep 25, 2007 11:24 PM

Okay, I promised some pics!

The first picture is how I used to look. The other photos are me this weekend at my sister's wedding. I have come a long way, but I still have 25 more pounds to shed before I reach my goal.

I'm not really sure why the sizes of all the photos were so different.

Anyway, I miss not hearing updates from the ladies of "Time to Vent". Hope all is going well in the weight loss journey for everyone.

Okay, I have been fiddling with these pictures for the longest time. I can't seem to get them the size I want. Is there a trick? I copy the URL and type in the dimensions. If it ends up too big, it won't allow me to change the size.

Vavavoom!! You look amazing! Cheers to you!

May I ask: how many lbs. did you lose and how long did it take you? you say you have 25lbs to go, but I don't see 25lbs extra on your body??

You're an inspiration...I need to lose 30lbs and your pictures have given me that extra push to get my butt up and do it! Thanks!

Thanks!!!

In total I have lost 40 lbs. I had lost some last year, but got too confident, and stopped trying. In June I really got my butt in gear again and have lost 15 more lbs since then.

I started going to the gym alot! At least 4 days/wk. Lift weights first, then do cardio. I also LOVE doing aerobics classes. I just eat sensibly. Several times a day. I still eat carbs, but much less than I used to. I eat lots of salad and protein. I have a protein shake just about every day. I don't take seconds. I treat myself, but I will have a sugarless pudding or something like that.

I am only 5'2" and I currently weigh 145 lbs. I should be at 120 lbs, which is how much I weighed when my fiance and I started dating 5 years ago. I gained a TON of weight when I was pregnant. It's just a matter of having the willpower to say enough is enough.

Good luck, and thanks for the compliments! It's a good motivator.

OMG you look amazing! Good for you! Gratz!

You might try your javascript or maybe it's your firewall for the photos.

Good for you : )

I'm 5"1 and 145 lbs too! so I know exactly how you feel (except I don't have a gorgeous little girl to show for it). But this is the heaviest I've ever been so I'm really sad and disappointed in myself.

However, today is a new day and I'm ready to kick ass!

You look great Celine!!  I finally found your thread! lol  I have about 50lbs to lose still.  I was 135 when fh and I got together almost 6 years ago, and now I'm 180.  And I'm 5'4" also, so I need to be at least to 135, I'll take that!  I was 130 when I got pregnant at 17, and haven't gotten that body back, but I'm sure I won't, not now that I'm almost 30!  *oh boy, did I just say that?!* Anyway, you look fabulous!  Good Luck!!!

I just signed up for the vow to wow body makeover today and seeing these pictures of you definitely gives me inspiration!  You look amazing and should be very proud of yourself!  And by the way...you do not need to lose 25 more pounds!

Wow Celiny! You look great. Kudos to you on your willpower! I am getting married 8/30/08. Before I had my daughter (at 17..am now 27) I was 135lbs. I am now 210...Yikes!Surprised At only 5'5" that's not exactly proportionate! I just joined the Vow to Wow Body Makeover....so here goes something! My FH has decided to do this with me...he only has a little belly to lose...lol..but hey..I need all the support I can get! Your pictures are very motivational! Again, you look great...keep us posted!

Thanks again to everyone who has posted encouraging messages. I wish you all the best in each of your own weight loss journeys. I will post pictures after I get married. It would be nice to see some other before and after photos.

Mind over matter. Feeling beautiful in a wedding gown will be so much more enjoyable than any chocolate bar or bowl of ice cream ever could.
