The Last 20 lbs Progress Photo Thread

JessBbodyJessBbody Member Posts: 438 Member Member Posts: 438 Member
I wanted to start a photo progress thread for losing the last 20 (or so) lbs, so we could see the subtle changes in the body from being at a healthy weight to being fit and/or at goal weight.

I thought it would be cool to show what 10 lbs of progress looks like.

Just a little back story, I was around 184 lbs for several years leading up to March 2019, when I bought a gym membership and started lifting 4-5x a week. During this time I was not watching my diet except to cut out sugar and sweets. I lost 20 lbs by August (first 2 photos).

Since the start of Covid in March 2020 I've been doing YouTube workouts at home 4-5 days per week, but was not counting calories, and I lost about 5 lbs.

I started counting calories on 9/24/20 and have been losing 1-2 lbs a week.

My deficit is 280 cals and I workout 30 minutes 4-6 x per week. Some days I do hard workouts like Heather Robertson and more often I do easy workouts like HASFIT or walk at home with Leslie Sansone.

My goal weight is 135 so I've got 10 lbs to go! Wish me luck trying to lose weight during the holidays!

When I started counting calories I decided to take pictures for every 5 lbs lost.

Please share your pics of the last 20 (or so) lbs of losing if you have them!

    @DancingMoosie Thank you! For that one I was actually posing for the camera instead of standing there like I'm having my moles examined.

    Thanks for posting. This is really helpful to me as I am just starting work on the last 30 lbs. and was feeling like there has been no real change in my body despite lifting weights and using the treadmill.
    You look great, your consistent work is showing.

    Congrats, you look really great! We are actually the same height and weight (I've been stuck here for weeks now!), but wow you look so much slimmer than me! Your legs are amazing :)

    I really wish I had taken photos on the way it's very good advice, I've got pics from the start, but nothing since. Maybe I should take some pics now ...I just hate photos of myself generally!

    @Jacq_qui thank you! Take the photos for yourself first, and just think of them as very clinical - they're just to show progress, you don't have to look cute!

    @nexangelus thank you! You look fantastic. All that lifting, running, and cycling is very impressive. Very inspiring for me as one of my goals is to get more fit beyond just looking fit. Thanks for posting your photos, and I look forward to seeing your progress.
