Oz, I have been trying really hard not to comment on these images because I didn't want to seem like I was commenting more favorably on one than any other. But your change is so remarkable I would almost believe that your "after" picture was taken 20 years before your "before" photo.

I like to think that I want to do LC for health reasons alone, but having a change in your entire person like that must be a blessing in itself that is worth working for. Your own mother wouldn't recognize you.

But it's not just the change from the before to the after, it's that you are plain drop dead gorgeous.

This thread is so inspirational, so many amazing transformations! Way to go everyone! I've never compared my before and after pics, so I thought I'd do that and post them because I love looking at before and afters! I'm still not at goal, I'd like to get down to 150 but I will get there some day!

I definitely think she was trying to get a dig in for taking her cell phone away. You look way younger and really great!

Hi all…
I don't have any shots of me at my heaviest, but here is a shot & crop of me at about 325 pounds 6 months before returning to low carb eating...and then another of me this past September at about 275 pounds. I was actually about 25 pounds heavier than the heavy shots here when I returned to low carb.



I will need to get a more full length of me now for comparison with the ''old me''...

Hi folks...
Thanks NWLoser...

I did find a picture of me one month before starting low carb - probably at my heaviest ever…and one of me at a batismal event at a friend's hot tub last month...



By the way, the big guy is my gigging partner and best friend (except for my lovely wife), Mark. We have gigged together twice a week (over 120 times a year actually) for the past 6 years...he's the little brother I never had...

Thank you Cathy for the kind words…
Got the "beautiful" eyes from my dad and grandad, and it was they which attracted my lovely wife of 40 years to me...

Thanks for reading the thread and commenting...

Everyone looks so awesome. One thing I never realized is how much younger everyone looks. I always thought the extra weight helped people fill in their wrinkles but truthfully everyone on here looks 10 years younger after their loss. Way to go and thank you for posting. It is so inspirational.
