[QUOTE=AmanteDelFuego;12952799]Well, since my 1 Year Low Carb Anniversary was Monday, I figured I'd finally post my before and "after" pics...I'm still not quite where I want to be, but I'm not sure where that will be, so we'll just call it "after" for now

You are honestly lovely, and you were before the weight loss, but it is as if you have been set free. Wonderful! And I bet you have a fabulous voice!

Su, thank you so much! I really do feel like I've been set free. I used to be so quiet and shy...not anymore! And everyone at school told me that I have a great voice, wanted me to audition for American Idol. No way! Simon scares me! Music is my therapy. <3

Melissa, you are gorgeous and I am completely envious of your awesome upper arms! WTG!

babykinz, aww thanks so much! I'm glad I have retained some of my curves also...I've always had 'em and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't know what to do without 'em. I feel womanly for once!

I was 16 when I was at my heaviest, somewhere between 230-240lbs. I don't have many pictures from this time, but the one I am posting is from the end of my Sophomore year from our musical review. My mom had to make me a dress because we couldn't find anything that would fit me locally. I was a size 22, probably should have been wearing a 24 though!


My junior and senior year, I started losing some weight, probably around 20lbs or so. This picture is from the end of my senior year and I weighed probably 200-210lbs.


When I started college, I actually lost a ton of weight instead of gaining the "Freshman 15". When I found out that I was going to be a bridesmaid in my brother's wedding, I decided to try to lose some weight for the first time in my life. My mom had done Atkins before with much success, so I decided to try it. I lost so much weight so fast, I had to stop so I wouldn't have to get my dress altered! So this pic is from June 2008 and I was somewhere around 180lbs. The dress was a size 14 I think...


So in 2009, I decided to make a serious change. I committed to living LC and exercising. I lost 32lbs in 2009, and 47 inches off of my body! The majority of those inches came off my hips, thighs, and belly. This picture is as of this morning, wearing my new skinny jeans (I know!) I am currently wearing a medium top (used to be a 2X in women's plus sizes) and a size 10 on the bottom! I'm actually about 2lbs above my current weight listed in my stats, but not for long! :blush:

Wow, you look great! Congratulations. You're an inspiration to many of us.

Thank you guys so much for your kind words! Here's a full body pic - this is from this morning. The dress is the bridesmaid dress I'll be wearing for my cousin's wedding this July! It still needs to be fitted and everything, but that's more or less how it (and I) look.



You all look INCREDIBLE! I come to this thread every time I need inspiration!
