Is that a woolf-whistle I hear? Everybody looks gorgeous!

I absolutley LOVE this thread !

momtocj7mea, Terri B and everyone who has contributed, thank you. You look fabulous.

It really helps to have something tangible to see like a picture.

What I love as well is the greater confidence it's evident people have in the 'after' pictures - everybody looks more relaxed, and holds themselves with just a little a bit of attitide !

I love this thread, and wanted to thank everyone who has shared pictures. You are such an inspiration! What I love the most is how everyone looks not only physically lighter (and younger!) in their during/after pics but also emotionally lighter, like you are walking on cloud nine. That is what's most beautiful!

Everyone looks so amazing!

I joined here a little while ago but got sidetracked. Am back on the low carb wagon now and remembered this forum so came for some inspiration, this thread did it!

I will post some of my progress so far pics later.

As promised here are my weight loss so far pics (around 40lbs). I have about another 40lbs to go. I absolutely hate my before photo, it was taken new years eve 2010 by a friend who put it on Facebook. I immediately untagged myself but didn't have the guts to ask her to remove it.... well I couldn't say it was a bad photo..... I looked exactly the same in them all from that night

For two years I messed with diets, losing 10lbs with slimming world then getting fed up of being hungry and gaining it again! I toyed around with Cambridge diet before deciding it just wasn't for me. Being in ketosis on that and googling about it led me to Atkins and low carb. I tried it once but gave up. I don't like that many vegetables and I felt so unhealthy. Eventually I came to the decision that there are some veggies I like and loads of fruits. So even though I might not be in ketosis I could still eat "lower" carbs. I love the way I eat now, I get between 60-80g of carbs a day and hardly ever eat processed foods which I used to practically live on. It's been a real eye opener to me.

My hubby has been a real inspiration to me. He had lost 120lbs gradually over 4 years! (not low carb but it works for him!)

Anyway.... sorry to go on! Here's the pics as this is what this thread is for LOL.

NO WAY! That is 40 pounds? I swear it looks like you've lost 80 pounds or so. What an incredible difference and you look sooooo much younger!

Aren't you a beauty now! My goodness, what a difference 40 pounds has made! (I'm about there, and I don't see nearly as big a change in me, sadly.) You have to set your own goals, and they are none of my business, but I'd never expect the lovely girl in the second picture to be losing 40 more pounds--you really look great.
