90 lbs lost - Comparison Pictures 250 vs 160

Friday, January 11, 2013


So I finally took some comparison pictures. I don't notice as much of a difference between 170 and 160. My back does seem a little different in the 160 though. I definitely should do more exercising. I don't feel skinny even though I am much skinnier.

I am very close to my healthy weight goal, but I still mentally feel so far from where I would like my body to be. I am trying not to be too selfish about my looks, but when I was at 155 at age 18 my body was much different. I guess all of the fat for so long really stretched me out. Maybe one day I will feel better about the stretch marks! For now, I just have to be happy with how much I have changed in my life! I am 27, and from now on I will continue to be more focused on me! My life is very important, and I am still pushing to stay healthy! I can't go back!

Besides losing the weight, I also lost a lot of negativity in my life! I also lost my high blood pressure! I gained new knowledge, a positive attitude, and a wonderful new lifestyle with Spark. Thank you so much for the continued support. Even though I hate looking at the pictures of myself, it helps me keep moving forward. I can't go back to how I used to be. Hopefully I get more motivation to keep working out. I am trying not to slack off, but my work is tough for me right now. My new position has me a little stressed.

    Wow, great loss! I must say I'm a very similar sideways shape to you. Why is it that fat comes off the rear before it comes off the front even if it went on the front last?

    YOU GO, GIRL! Wooohooo!

    While 155 is your goal weight, that may just not be the weight you want to finish at. That's the top level of "Healthy BMI" for your height, right? Maybe with your bone structure, you'll want to take it down a bit further. Your body will let you know when you are in the right place!

    What's important is your improved health, and radiant positive energy that you have now!

    So proud of you!
