Face OFF!! w/photos

I'm a REALLY LONG way from reaching my goal but wanted to post a picture to show even a little bit of weight loss makes a difference. On a fluke today I was wondering if you could even tell if I have lost any weight, especially in my face, since that's what we see in pictures most. And lo and behold there is a bit of difference. I still have a double chin now but a little bit of it is gone and the fullness around my eyes is slightly diminished. The first picture my weight is somewhere around 239, not exactly sure. The second picture I'm about 16 pounds less and I weigh around 223.

I just wanted to give a little bit of encouragement to those of us just starting that even a small weight loss can sometimes be seen! :happy:

    It's not a little difference - it is a big difference! Keep plugging away at it. You can get there. I have been 210 pounds and have gotten down to the 140's now for years. It really can be done.

    The difference is remarkable! Keep up the good work. People didn't notice I was losing weight until I had lost about 40 pounds. Then I became an expert on the subject. LOL!

    If you hadn't told us how much weight you've lost I would have guessed SO much more! There is a HUGE difference in your face. I hope you're very proud of yourself because you should be. Congratulations and good luck with the rest of your journey!
