HIT my goal!!!! :) my goal was 20 lbs. I am 5ft 2 inches and started at 142. I now weigh 122. I looked back at pics of me before and now and i tell you I can't see any differences? I started at these pics all last night looking for where those 20 lbs came off and i can't see it? I know the scale says i am 122, I am wearing many sizes smaller but where did the 20 lbs come off? Can you tell me please....Collages1enlarge2.jpg

    I totally see it! You have lost in all areas and definitely toned up. Your hips and thighs are smaller, stomach's more toned, butt's smaller and lifted. I think you look great!

    before, u had a small belly pouch, it's no longer there....
  • I can definitely see it!!!! Especially with the picture taken from the back. Your entire body looks like it shrunk & is more toned looking. Great job on the loss!

    I agree! I can totally see the difference. In my opinion, you are one of the lucky ones who's body shape didnt deform-change when you were heavier. Your body had the same nice proportions, but now you are extremely fitter and slimmer, just look at your abs! You should Be proud of Yourself, You look great!

    You lost all over. Your waist, hips, thighs... all smaller. Don't be so hard on yourself. You lost evenly which is awesome! You look fantastic!

    yes i did in motivation and support and i really didn't get much feedback. I needed to know what others thought changed since i don't see it. Now i know, i have gotten great feedback in this section of the forum. thanks everyone!

    seriously? i don't see it... plain and simple. I look at those pics and see myself looking the same. That is why i got the old swimsuit out of the basement and all for the pics, to really get a good proper comparison.... even with that, i still had to stare at the pics and look and think : what the heck changed"????

    There's a huge difference. You look ripped in your after picture. I can see abs.
  • Doesn't matter if you have posted this before or not anyway. Obviously you are in need of a bit of support and reassurance which we all need from time to time so well done you look fantastic and your hard work is paying off for sure. Well done!!!

    A lot of the initial weight that comes off is water weight, and you definitely look like you've toned up in the mid section. Women usually lose most of their weight starting at the top. You look great. Congratulations!!!!
