Motivational Before/ After Pics?

Hi all,

I'm new here- started induction 3 days ago and was hoping that there was a thread somewhere that has before and after pics of member weight loss? It's super motivating and inspiring to me to see real life success stories :-)

We could post them in this thread!

This is my recent "before" and "during" -- although I was already down about 15 pounds in the first picture. From a high weight of 206 last August I am down 35 lbs and would like to lose 20 lbs more.



and this is a link to my original 100 lb weight loss in 2003 Faces of LowCarbFriends - Message

Okay, who's next!?

Ok I'm going to try to post mine, but they may be huge, sorry.
Before. Starting weight about 240


During. Had lost maybe 60ish lbs by now




During. Close to goal, probably around 155-160 here. I've since gained 20 lbs.

The left was taken at my sister's wedding last year in 2013. The right is from the other day, just over a year later. I started back on low carb right after I got back from the wedding.

About 220, size 18, xl on the left, 166, med on the right.

I remember that cardigan wouldn't button up and then eventually it became huge on me. All the clothes I wore back then are gone, and gone forever.

These pictures are SUPER inspiring. Thanks to everyone who has shared with us. I am at the beginning of my journey (haven't lost much yet) but will try to post a "before" pic when I get home.

As time progresses, I will try to keep this thread updates with new current pics.

Thanks again for sharing all. You all look amazing!!!
