Progress pics for women 5'6 with hourglass shape

ceicei7 Posts: 17 Member
Hello, I'm looking to see what I would possibly look like. I am 5'6, 215lbs with an hourglass shape looking to lose 50lbs or more. Share your progress pics pls.


  • We are close..I too am 5'6'' and 213...I would love to see some motivation here!
  • I don't have any progress to contribute (yet!), but if you just want to envision a bit of what your body might look like at a certain weight, this is a good site to check out- real women submit pictures of themselves and share their height, weight, and clothing sizes.

    My starting weight is quite a bit higher than yours, and I am currently at 185, but I am definitely hourglass shaped.



    And in "real" clothes...


    SW: 315
    CW: 185
    GW: No goal weight... 24% body fat is my goal

    Best wishes to you!

    Hi. I'm 5'6" starting weight 231. Unfortunately, I didn't start taking full body shots until I'd already lost about 20lbs. Here is a face shot at my heaviest and a set of photos with a 10 lb difference. I still have quite a ways to go to reach goal but even 10 lbs does make a difference.

    This was from June, about 30lbs gone. Admittedly, I don't look all that different now so I haven't updated the "during" pics. I'm 5'6" also.

    I started higher, at 249, and I'm only down to 207 now, but I'm 5'6 and I've been told I'm hourglass shaped. My GW is 165.
