This is my original Progresson photo page. My initial introduction was…
I can’t believe I’m doing this, but here is a pictorial journal of my weight loss. Starting with my before picture I plan on adding about 1 picture a month until I reach my goal weight.
It’s been over 6 years since I said that I love the fact that I can look back at these photos now. If you embarking on your own weight loss journey I highly recommend taking photographs, measurements or weigh-ins. Something that allows you to see your progress and celebrate how far you’ve come.
The notes below the photos are my original words when posting the photos.
Before Picture Taken 06/17/05
This might be the least flattering picture I have of myself. In defense, it was 2 days after the toddler was born, but god, does it make a great before picture! I am approx 225 pounds in this.
1 Month Taken on 07/23/05
This was taken at the shore. 4 days before I weighed in at 191.4.
7 Weeks Taken on 08/18/05
This as taken the day after I weigh-in at 183.2. I’ll have you know those are the first pair of jeans I’ve worn non maternity since about February!
13 Weeks Taken on 09/22/05
33.6 pounds gone! Taken the day after my weigh in at 173.2 pounds. Those shorts were un-wearable 8 weeks ago!
17 Weeks OP Taken 10/21/05
I took this 2 days after I weighed in at 168.4. These jeans are a size 12 I found in my closet, have no idea when I got them, but there are baggy!! 10’s are a little too tight still, but maybe in a next few weeks I’ll be there.
23 Weeks OP Taken 11/30/05
This was taken the day I weighed in at 158.6. 10lbs since my last picture and those are size 10 jeans baby!
27 Weeks OP Taken 12/30/05
This is 2 days after I weighed in with a 1.8 lbs gain after Christmas at 152.4. As you can see I really shouldn’t be wearing those jeans. I finally agree, bigger clothes do not make you look better. Those are size 12’s! I look thinner in the 10’s above and I was 4 lbs heavier!
32 Weeks Taken 02/04/06
This was taken 2 days after I weighed in at
146.4. I am actually below goal! You will not believe what size those jeans are, I hardly believe it myself! 8’s!! And they fit perfectly! Much better then the 12’s above.
36 Weeks Taken 03/03/06
The day after I reached my goal of making lifetime member at weight Watchers and weighing in at 142.2lbs! I bought this dress in honor of making goal a few weeks ago. It’s a size 8 and I plan on wearing it to a wedding this fall. Of course the picture I liked the best didn’t come out great (the one on the right) so I tried to brighten it up a bit.
Those who know me know I NEVER wear anything with my arms exposed! This is a first! Man I wished I was that skinny on my wedding day! ;) ;)
42 Weeks Taken 04/16/06
I’ll say it again, only because I can’t believe it! Those are size 6! There a little snug but who cares?!? I love them! This was taken a few days after I weighed in at 138.
56 Weeks Taken 07/18/06
This is me on vacation this year. A few people requested some maintenance photos. This is my 56th week on plan, 20 weeks after making lifetime. I’m about 136 pounds in this photo and it’s 5 weeks after my tummy tuck.
64 Weeks Taken 09/13/06
I wasn’t planning on updating this section for awhile but someone shot this picture of me and it reminded me of the pictures I’d take for web site. This was taken 64 weeks after starting weight Watchers. I was about 138 lbs. This will be the last picture I post for awhile, at least until my 2 year weight Watchers anniversary.
116 Weeks Taken 09/25/07
WOW It’s been a YEAR since posting. I guess since I reached my weight loss goal it wasn’t as important for me to post progress pictures. But, as requested, here you go! I snapped this before going to work today. The morning scale reading was 142 and those are size 6 dress pants. It’s also been about 2 months since I started working out and circuit craning. I think I’m starting to see results. Especially in my arms!
150 Weeks Taken 06/15/08
That’s me, first thing in the morning! I snapped it right after posting my latest tummy tuck photos. I have to admit, I have no idea what I weigh in this picture. It’s been about 2 weeks since weighing in officially. I’d guess about 145. I can tell you those are an Old Navy size 4 shorts and a large tank. (I’m NOT normally a size 4 – more of a 6). My weight is up from my lowest but I’ve built a lot of muscle over the past 10 months and I’m totally happy with my size – Still strange to say that!
No IDEA how many weeks – Taken July 4, 2013
Has it really been FIVE YEARS since I updated this page? That Instagram snap reminded me of these old body shots I used to take. If you’ve been keeping up on the blog you know I had another baby, I’m now a CrossFit addict, still running, and am overall rocking maintenance. My body is changing in interesting ways and I’m committed to simply letting it be the result of my lifestyle. I stopped weighing in, again, and I now focus on eating pretty intuitively while falling back on food journaling if I need a shot of accountability. Oh and I cut off all my hair again too. :)
