ok and just because I want to be accountable and never look the way i did in this picture again. here is a full body shot (shudder). i never would have taken this picture or allowed it, but it was my high school reunion this past summer and this was someone else who posted it.

i am going to try to see if i can get a full body shot now. i sort of see my weight loss, but maybe seeing a picture will show me more??

sophiethecat 01-04-2012 09:21 AM

I don't have that many "Befores" when I was 30+ pounds overweight from late fall/winter 2009 through June 2010, (either deleted them out of shame or cropped my body out of them) BUT I have a few and I will work on putting them up sometime today.

I will need to take pics for the "After" shot though, cause I don't have any full length recent pics that show it well.

I ran into the notes I was keeping over the summer and I have to tell you about my weight & measurements! :)

I started measuring myself when I started Callanetics, which was on Aug. 9, 2010. At that point, I'd been walking for exercise and had already lost at least 11# from Lower Carb starting late June and then switching to Low Carb by end of July.

So here is August 4:

WEIGHT: 158#
waist: 32"
bust: 42"
hips: 43"
thighs (together): 40"

Sept. 14.

WEIGHT: 153#
waist: 29"
bust: 37"
hips: 41"
thighs: 37"

I owe the inches lost to Callanetics!

I lost about 3 more pounds while on Low Carb between Sept. 14 and Oct. 12, reaching 150#.

I started JUDDD on October 12.

I exercised only one other time after September.

Reached goal weight (145#) on Oct. 31 (would have been there a week earlier, but I started overdoing my calories by hundreds and went back up the scale) *face palm*.

I measured on Nov. 16:

WEIGHT: 144# (in maintenance)
waist: 28-1/2"
bust: 37"
hips: 39-1/2"
thighs: 36-1/2"

Today, I decided to measure again. No exercise for months, until just yesterday when I started again with Callanetics.

WEIGHT: 140#
waist: 28"
bust: 37"
hips: 39"
thighs: 36"

"BEFORE" - July 2011, had already lost at least 5# from highest weight when this was taken. I started lowering carbs and walking a couple weeks before. Around 165# in this pic. (had been up to at least 170# before I started doing anything about it). I gained the weight from my usual low to mid-140s from Fall 2010 to June 2011. This is the most I'd ever weighed in my life.

http://img703.imageshack.us/img703/9355/beforefn.jpg


"DURING" - Mid September 2011. About a month before I went from a strict LC diet to moderate carb and JUDDD. Weight is about 151#. It took me about another 3 - 4 weeks to lose one pound on LC. The better shape is owed to Callanetics too! :)

http://img844.imageshack.us/img844/7044/imag0029hr.jpg

"KINDA AFTER" - Because I'm nowhere near finished toning up! :) This was taken earlier today, January 4, 2012. I hadn't exercised in about 3 months, and just started back in yesterday with Callanetics. Weight is 140#. Been JUDDDing (and doing variations) for almost 2-1/2 months now. Reached goal weight back on Halloween (goal weight was 145#). Maintaining ever since, though I dropped more weight unexpectedly around Christmas from all the mixed-up eating & fasting (JUDDD, MUDDD, IF, FDs, etc. and have recently gone to lower-moderate carb a lot of the time than at first on JUDDD).

Oh, and I meant to say I started Callanetics & diet in August 2011, not '10!

Wine2 01-04-2012 06:41 PM

Look great gals!

theredhead 01-04-2012 07:40 PM

Sophie, you're looking great! Impressive results! We've compared notes on our similar height and weight, but where you have a nice bust, I'm carrying the extra weight in my "menopause middle", lol. I've always been a pear shape, but I've been thrilled to see my saddlebags go away. It's interesting how our shapes can change over the years, and we can be distributed differently than before. I'm delighted to not have so much junk in my trunk, but sorry I have a muffin top, lol. :stars:

Okay, I found only ONE picture of myself before. I hate having my picture taken, or at least I used to. I was overweight for so long.
The before is at DH's police academy graduation 10 years ago (why did the photographer have him place his hand there? Geesh..). I was probably 180 pounds then, and a size 12-14. The after is today, at 142, size 6-8 (those size 8 jeans are actually getting baggy:hyst: ).
Hopefully these post. I have never posted pictures before.:dunno:

Wow! That is FANTASTIC! :clap::clap::clap: You look totally awesome! I may have to look into Callanetics :up: Great job!

I don't really have any JUDDD before and afters because I was 118.6 when I started JUDDD on October 26.

Here is my highest of 194 (way back in 2003 when I started low carbing):

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y21...c/DSC00220.jpg

Here is now, maintaining around 112-114:

theredhead 01-05-2012 08:00 AM

Lisa and Julie....WOWZERS!

I have a couple I've posted before on the main forum. I lost most of my weight on Atkins, then hCG, but I'm maintaining beautifully with JUDDD:

mattsmama 01-05-2012 08:04 AM

Julie, those pictures are amazing! I have to admit, when I saw the CAKE, my first thougt was, :lol: "Man, that would be good on an UD!" :laugh:


Wow, Laurie!! Good Heavens! That is an incredible change!
What a sweet baby. They grow so fast...:heart:

All you ladies are lovely. These changes are wonderful!:jumpjoy:

shari 01-05-2012 09:13 AM

I'm speechless..ALL the pics are truly amazing and eveyone look sooo good! Very encouraging, thanks for posting. :clap:
(What I'm seeing the most is how incredible the inch losses and body changes are...)

Wine2 01-05-2012 09:15 AM

Ditto...amazing! I can't wait to share my before/after; however I have to wait until I've lost more than 5#! Hahahaha

Knittering 01-05-2012 09:30 AM

Wow -- you guys are so inspiring!
Julie, honestly, if you didn't have "proof" that you were once overweight I'd never believe you'd once been that size. You look like you've always been tiny.
And you too, Laurie!

sophiethecat 01-05-2012 09:31 AM

Thanks for the encouragement everyone. :)

Kris, Mattsmama, Julie, Laurie - you are looking AWESOME!! :high5: Congrats!!!

sophiethecat 01-05-2012 09:45 AM

I took what I feel is a little better "After" pic today since I feel less bloated, and am actually down to 138#.

BEFORE - July 2011, around 165#

http://img703.imageshack.us/img703/9355/beforefn.jpg

AFTER - January 5, 2012 (been maintaining 145# goal weight since mid-Nov after LC and then JUDDD) Started losing again around Christmas. 138# today.

http://img856.imageshack.us/img856/2...120106at12.jpg

I'm still in need of toning up, but as I said, I hadn't exercised in about 3 months, and I just started back with one workout on Tues.

oneoftwo 01-05-2012 09:49 AM

You all look amazing, thanks for sharing your photos and big congrats !!

Joedi 01-05-2012 03:53 PM

I have went from about 180 (too scared to weigh!) to 133. The first lot of weight was lost by basically eating very little...I then switched to atkins, and maintained for 6 months, which was very frustrating!
I came to juddd at the start of september last year, and lost the last 14 lbs in 8 weeks, and have been maintaining for 2 months.
The first photos show me in a Uk 16/US 12, the second ones show me now, in a UK 10-12/ US 6-8
