Lucy/Diminishing's before & during & prpgress pics

Postby Diminishing » Wed Mar 12, 2008 10:21 am

Takes a deep breath.......

I have been meaning to post these photos for ages, but have not quite got round to it.

But I figure it'll keep me honest!

Some background: I have always been on the curvy side (around a size 16), but have packed the weight on over the past 10 years. I was diagnosed with an auto immune disease in 1999 (sarcoidosis) for which I was on very high doses of prednisone (steroid) which sent my weight sky-rocketing.

I did lose weight in 2002 in preparation for trying to conceive, and got pregnant. I sadly lost that baby, and my weight shot up again.

I lost weight again in 2003 and fell pregnant again. Since then I have had 3 beautiful children in quick succession (in Feb 04, July 05 and Sept 06) and finished breastfeeding my youngest in November 07.

At the same time as I completed breastfeeding, I KNEW I really needed to address my weight, and this is the photo that made me cringe!

Image

I am not actually sure how much I weighed then (about 105kg is my guess?), but at my heaviest I have been 109.4kg, which was just after I gave birth to my youngest in Sept 2006.

I have been eating healthily since mid November 2007, and on Kate Morgan since early January 2008. I am currently 92.2kg.

This is what I look like at the moment:

To be totally honest, I am a little disappointed.....it doesn't seem to me that I LOOK any different??

Maybe its the clothes?! All my clothes are too big, and don;t show where I have lost cm's?

Tam, I reckon you are right. I need new clothes! I have a child free day today: might have to nip off out to buy some closer fitting gym clothes?!

sounds good. You could go bra and undies or bikini like others have, but if you weren't comfortable with that I would get some gym pants, and a tighter top! :mrgreen: Have a child-free fun day!!!

Hi Lucy I can see quite a big difference especially around your tummy area! Thanks for sharing your photos :) Can't wait to see more of them during your weight loss journey :)

Hugs
~~~Hugs Tam~~~

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.

Thanks Tam.

Well, I weighed in today (at the chemist) and have lost 1.5kg in a week, so I am very chuffed with that! So even if the snaps/my clothes don't show it the loss to my best advantage right now, the scales do......phew!

OK, time for me to post another snap I reckon. I am now at the half way point.......

Image

All this seems to show me is that I need to get more clothes that actually fit me! Yvonne, my friend who took this snap, tightened my top up around my back as it was hanging off me.

Also, I am just about to start with a personal trainer and I this photo will be my "start point" photo for that.

And also, through the personal trainer, I am weaning myself off Kate Morgan and moving to Calorie King.....................

Interesting times ahead......

Wow Lucy your looking skinny!!! I can only imagine how much slimmer you would look if you were wearing clothes that fit!

Well done & good luck with the personal trainer & changing over to Calorie King :D
