100 Pounds Lost--Before & Current PICTURES

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, July 08, 2010

I thought it would be fun to take some cliche pictures of me with my old size 24W jeans... I'm still amazed that those jeans used to FIT me!









This one is with my jeans quilt... I cut up all my jeans as they got too big on me, and made this (very heavy!) blanket :)


100 pounds down!

    I love the jeans quilt! What a fabulous idea! Many people sleep better under a weighted blanket and this would be a great way to make one. Love it!

    Wow! I watched your video and have been reading a number of your blogs. You are absolutely stunning. You look like the French actress Leslie Caron--she's before your time but she was adorable. I have about 50 lbs. to lose but I've experienced so many of the things you mentioned---hiding behind people when having my picture taken, buying clothes that fit not ones that I necessarily like, not wanting to see old friends, not being able to close the bath towel around me, etc. etc. I've been doing the SP program seriously for about 10 days now and I already feel more energetic and "thinner." I took some before pictures and hope, someday, to be the inspiration to others that you are to me. Thanks for your blog. Keep up the terrific job and enjoy your sons. My son is 21 and the years flew by!

  Quilt idea was great. I am going to have to steal that.

    the jean quilt is SUCH an inspirational photo!
I know that someday, instead of throwing out my old jeans or donating them, making them into something new, and a positive reminder of my hard work would be SO gratifying!
I hope you keep it close and look at it every day. :)
You are magnificent!

    Thank you for your honesty around the "baggy skin" issue. I have at least 80 lbs to lose and am just starting on the road to normal. I think we all wanted to hear that it did just "snap back into place. I am intrigued with your reference to "oats oats and more oats".....what is that about?

    i think the quilt idea is awesome! I wish i had kept the clothes from my earlier years. but i had a friend who was losing weight after surgery and needed my large clothes on her way down. but i would have loved to do the two legs in one shot! so neat!

    Looking at the pictures of your transformation on this blog, "WOW". You now look 10 years or more younger. Its amazing how excess weight make us looking much older than we really are. I too have noticed since I have gained all this weight in the past few years that I look much older than I am at times. I am only 27 and looking to make that transformation for losing over 100 lbs total as well. I wish you the best with everything in your life and thank you for sharing this blog. It is truly and inspiration and motivation to keep going as I hope to have a similar success story. Did I already say how great you look?

    Oh my gosh, you're so adorable! :) I lost 100 pounds, and still had 50 to go to reach your starting point. ;) It can be discouraging to think about that, and I had a little bit of trouble.

I like seeing your before/after pictures though, because I AM a size 24. And even though I know what has worked for me, using SparkPeople, for the last weight loss, I am developing a new plan for the rest.

Thanks for sharing.
