This is a before and current (still working on it) but what better way to see progress than to compare passport photos? The one on the left is from today; the one on the right was taken in July of '07, a few months before my wedding.



You guys are all doing great - so inspirational, keep it up!

The before picture is me around the high 130's, tight size 12.
The after picture is from a few days ago, 113 lbs, size 2-4.

I know it isn't a dramatic change, but my progress has been slow and steady. I hope it's inspiring![/COLOR]
This is a truly amazing transformation. You look much younger and much more vibrant and healthy. KUTGW!!!

It always amazes me how much younger people look once they've lost weight. I think you look older in your photo that's from 13 years ago! Great job!

thank you and you are right....when I created a Facebook page my classmates said the same thing....weight puts years on you and sometimes can make a person "unrecognizable" to those who knew them from way back when

thanks you and yes they are happy...although they still think I am "weird" due to the way eat and they've been around me from the beginning of the weight loss. Sometimes I think people who do not eat LC think we(us lC'ers) are from another planet

I've been doing Atkins off and on for about the least year. January of 2009 I was 162. I started going to the gym in April, 2009. I started Atkins again 1 month ago at 152 and now I'm at 142. I'm going to stay with it forever. I'm mad at myself for going up and down so many times in my life!

Here is 142, 10 or 15 more pounds to go. I'm 5'4". By the way, I hate taking pictures in the bathroom mirror!

You Look AWESOME!!! I just turned 42 and have been going through some major changes in my life, recovery, quitting smoking and now weight loss...you definately give me more inspiration!!! Thanks!!!
