Cherie's Before & Now :(

Postby CherryB » Mon Aug 29, 2011 5:25 pm

Hi everyone,

Well, I'm posting my before pic up but the weird thing is the before pic is how I want to look NOW! I lost 15.4kg (went from 79.4kg to 64kg) at the end of 2009 but over the past two years I have put it all back on. :cry:

So the skinny pic you see is me in late 2009 - the chubby pic is me now in mid 2011.

I have started a new 3 month challenge as of today and I am determined to get my old body back! Nothing's getting in the way. Not ONE single chocolate bar! :)

I will do weekly weigh-ins and pic updates.

Current weight is 79.6kg.

Thank you very much Matchbox! :)

Well, about that muffin top (haha)! I was having no more than 1029 calories per day and I made sure I stuck to the low-carb meals. Believe it or not when I originally lost the weight I remember commenting in the first week how I felt I was already smaller around the belly. I've noticed if I have a diet containing too many carbs then I am bloated or chubby around the belly. I really miss that feeling of having no spare tyre around my waist, it makes such a difference to how I carry myself and in my confidence.

Well one good thing is that you know you can do it! It will probably be much easier the second time around cause you can use all the tricks and tips you learnt the first time! Good luck!! :D

Hi Imelro,

Thanks for your post!! :) I wish it were easier second time around but I struggle with knowing what it takes mentally and physically. I'll get there, it's just now a matter of how bad do I want it. :)

Good luck with your weightloss!

And although i think it is easier the 2nd time around, cause you know you can do it and that its possible, its still hard work! As they say, genuis is 1% inspiration, 99% perspiration!

Hey Cherie,

You sound just like me!!! I have some older photos of my "after" body after I lost a good amount of weight. I look at those pics now & wish like crazy that I could look like that again! But the funny thing is, I remember when I looked like that, I still was so frustrated with my thighs cause they still looked big. Now I think they look tiny in those pics, haha. I am starting a 90 day challenge this week (I'm starting the Food Patrol challenge) & I actually think it's harder this time around too. I've tried several times since I've gained the weight back but just can't seem to find the same will power. I lived off meal replacements back then...now I don't have that kind of strength! haha But I'm sick of the fact that all the girls around me are tiny & they all can wear the cutest clothes. I have super cute clothes but I can't wear them! It's so frustrating!!! So I am trying again. I currently weight around 73kg & am 168cm. I want to get down to my smallest weight which was 59-60kg. Wish me luck!

How has your weight loss been going??

Hey Jv997,

Oh! You know exactly what I've been going through! I was reading your reply saying "yep, that's totally me!"

Can you let me know how your challenge is going? I wish you the very best and look forward to hearing about it. :)

I'm doing well finally, been on a challenge for 3 weeks and lost almost 4kg and staying focused.

Hope it goes well for you!

:)

Hi Cherrie, I'm with you all the way. I guess we share the same sentiments. I gained weight after too much emotional eating. :( Wish you good luck in your journey. I hope we both get back to our old figure.

Hi Wants2Lose,

Sorry for late reply - haven't been on here awhile. Thank you for wishing me luck, and I wish you luck in your journey too. :) I've done okay for a while now, lost a few kg in the past month but not following as strictly as I was in the first week or two.

Cherie.
