Cerisedownunder, you look great in a bikini! - one of my goals which is hard to do at my age. I posted these on another before/after thread:

My highest weight was 194 in 2003. I can't find a picture at that weight. That's when I joined this site! Those first few months, I was able to get down to 146. I fell off the wagon and got back up to about 170. Here's a picture from probably 2006 at 170.



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 February 13 at 152 and now I'm at 139. 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. I'm 5'4". By the way, I hate taking pictures in the bathroom mirror!

Cerise, Julie, Aija, you all look fantastic. Thanks for taking the time to post these and share your progress/results. I think pictures motivate me more than just about anything!

Anyone else? Mine will be up in a month or two!

The bikini pic was taken at week 4. I lost about 8.8lb then put 4.4lb back on during that holiday in Brisbane. My goal was just to look good in a bikini!
I was still sucking my belly in for that photo (purely habit)

Thank you all for your kind comments, I'm beginning induction fresh today AGAIN because I just don't seem to have the same willpower now that there is no definite goal to work toward, although I'm telling myself that at 25, my body should be in it's prime and I must get it into good shape now that I'm looking at starting a family in the next 3-5 years.

What an inspiration seeing everyone's before and after photos!!

First pic is August 2009.... second is Feb 2010. Look at the difference. I didn't notice until I compared pics. I think the low carb weight loss sneaks up on you!

oh my gosh, Ammie! I just posted on another before/after thread that it looked like a man and his SON, and now you! You look like your own DAUGHTER!!! Amazing!!!


I know people who've lost weight on low-fat and it seems they don't look as younger/healthier, especially their faces, they just look "haggard" to me..... hard to explain. Has anyone else noticed this?? Ammie you look HEALTHY!

Two MAJOR additions to the gallery -- Ammie and TPiper, those are both phenomenal transformations. Ammie, you do indeed look so cute and healthy and TPiper, you have just about the best body I've ever seen. Wow.

And LowCarbF69, your updated pic is looking better than ever. You look great in that shirt.
