I'm brave today. Before and after (or during) thread

Like most of you, I'm camera shy, especially at my heaviest but I thought (adi gave me the idea) since the main LC lobby has before and after pictures which have been so inspiring to me through the years it might be fun to post pictures of our progress with JUDDD. Numbers can only say so much so I'm laying it out there ladies.

The first picture is of me at probably my highest weight ever, about 240 lbs (i'm 5'3). I had just had a baby about 4 months prior and this picture by itself sent me on my original LC weight loss journey. I still shudder when I see it because I never knew I had gotten so big.



The next 2 pictures are of me this morning at roughly 166/167 pounds. I'm not nearly done (thanks in part to the damage of 3 births ) but I've come a long way and I'm proud of myself.







Let's see everyone else's beautiful faces!

For anyone who is technically challenged, here is how to post on lowcarbfriends:

How do I use albums?

As a member, you can create Albums of images that are linked to your public profile. Albums can be created by visiting the User Control Panel, and clicking on the 'Pictures & Albums' link, and then clicking on 'Add Album'.

Each album can have a title ('Joe's Holiday to Nepal'), a description ('A bunch of photos from my recent adventure') and can be of three different types: Public, Private or Profile.

Public albums can be viewed by anyone
Private albums can only be viewed by site staff (moderators, administrators) and your Friends and Contacts (info)
Profile albums are viewable only by you. However, you can use the images to customize your public profile (info)
How do I upload pictures?

Once you've created an album you can upload images to it. Simply view the album and click on 'Upload Pictures'.

You'll have the option to give each picture a caption, and to set one image as the Album cover, which will be displayed on the public profile. To delete an album or edit the title, description or album type, click on 'Edit Album'. To delete an image, or to edit a caption or change the album cover, click on 'Edit Pictures'.

All members who have access to your album images can comment on them, in a similar way to Visitor Messages (more info). You can delete any image comments from your albums, and report inappropriate messages to moderators.

When you have uploaded a picture, you can place it in your posts by using the BB code text that is displayed below the image when you view it at full size.

Pictures really do ahow our progress. You are doing fantastic! I know what you mean about not having many highest weight photos. I did find one of myself in the basement the other day and if I can work out how to post I will put it up witha current pic. Thanks for the motivation idea!

OOps. Didn't work. I'll try again. That didn't work either! I will try a different way.

Dawn, it's not your computer! It's me! Now my battery is dying. Gotta go plug in....I'll get it even if it takes a couple of posts!!

The "attached tumbnail" is of me and JUDD BUDD, Seabreezes, at lunch together last week.

Elise - you have every right to be LOUD and PROUD! Look at you girl! You are doing an amazing job. I know it might seem slow at times, but girl, LOOK at how far you have come?!?!?!?!

Yam yam - you too! Your pictures are amazing! One thing I notice though, on you, is your AWARD WINNING SMILE! Now that is a smile that everyone should have!!!!!!

I've only lost 17 pounds and still have 12 or so to go...Not sure how noticable it would be. I'll snag some pics once I get home!

Seabreezes! So great to see you, and so glad you are feeling better with/despite physical therapy for injury! (Don't know if the PT makes us feel better or worse - kind of a mix!)

Elise, what a change for you - really an obvious difference from a lot of careful rotations.

YamYam, size what???!!!

b lou who, you are lookin' good.

I swear I'm not camera shy. I am very proud of where I am and how far I've come. But the idea of any one in my "real world" life (especially professional) seeing my photo here is just impossible to me.

Perhaps I will one day post some headless photos in unfamiliar clothes.

You all look amazing. Bravo.

Hey Buttah - I feel the same way. I would love to join in but if I was ever identified in my work world I would be mortified. So I will stand on the sidelines and cheer for all of you brave folk!

You guys look amazing! If I can figure out the technology I'll try this weekend.
I used to be terrified of the idea that someone from my "real life/professional life" would recognozie me and then I said, Well cripes! They saw me gain all the weight and see me most everyday now. What am I scared of? That I'm doing something about it now and getting healthier? I should have been so worried while I was gaining
