Update Pictures: 90 Pounds Gone

Here they are!! These pictures were taken today, at 188 pounds. NINETY pounds gone!


Now, to me, I don't LOOK any different than I did ten pounds ago. And I am a little bloated from PMS so I feel puffy. However, these are the same jeans I wore in the last pictures (size 14) and they are much looser. But the scale doesn't lie, and neither do my measurements.

In just the last ten pounds, I have lost:

1/4" off my neck
1/2" off each thigh
1" off my bust
2" off my waist
2" off my hips

Hey, very cool, the waist/hips are definitely shrinking! All other measurements stayed the same (wrist, upper arm, and calf). I am excited to have lost almost a foot off my hips since I began this journey! And my waist measurement, 35.5 inches, is getting closer and closer to what I would call 'normal' and healthy. My BMI (at 5'6") is 30.3, which is just inside the "obese" category. In order to no longer be obese, and just be 'overweight,' I need to have a BMI under 30, which will happen at 185 pounds.

Coming up soon: 100 Pounds Gone Pictures!

Kyle Gershman said...

Looking very very great...and after all it is the hips/waist ratio that tells the story about your health.

Lisa said...

You look so amazing!! I'm so happy for you I could just cry. And yes I'm jealous too - you have a great curvy figure. I used to have one too, but my boobs and butt took a hike and sometimes I think I look like a rectangle or a teenage boy lol. But I'll take being a rectangle any day over 230 lbs. Keep it up sister, you have no idea how inspiring you are!! Have a great vacation with your kids.

MargieAnne said...

I can definitely see a difference from 10 lbs ago. You are more shapely & are getting a great figure. Congrats, great job! I am so happy for you.

Steelers6 said...

Yes, my friend, NORMAL is now a word that does describe YOU. :)

Oh, and we finally get to see the shirt you mentioned quite awhile back that you were initially uncomfy wearing. [I think] I'm guessing you are way over that now! Yes, it looks nice and fits you well. (for now. haha)

Sooo cool to hear about your upcoming vaca, and then think about the trip when you took the 'before' photos in the sidebar..and how that particular trip went. Wow. And this trip sounds like a very active one. It's a lifestyle, baby! She's taking it on her vacation! Being active..Yay Lyn!

The Captain's Daughter said...

FANTASTIC!

I was bummed this morning to find that after being totally faithful to my healthy eating plan, I am only down one pound from last week! But instead of going off the rails, I will remember the advice you've given in similar times and press on!

I hope you are having a BLAST on your vacation!

OMGosh Girl, You look FANTASTIC!

Lynne said...

You look awesome!! How does it feel? I am wondering if you share some of the same feelings about getting smaller... Do you start to feel like you're losing too fast? Do you feel comfortable with your new self? Do you dismiss praise and complements? Sometimes I think I am sabatoging myself... that my mind is 2 parts - one "YOU ARE FAT" the other "DON'T NOTICE ME.. FAT's NOT SO BAD"...

MB said...

You look AMAZING! Are we going to get to see your smile when you get to goal? It won't be long now. Hope you're having a great time on vacation!

I want you to know because of you I have talked my husband into letting me do Medifast. I am currently 256 pounds and I can't stand it anymore. I dislocated my knee and now am permanently disabled because of this. My weight what was to blame. I see your blog and can't believe it has taken this long! I hope to do even just half of what you were able to achieve. I have read some of your posts and I am in tears. :) Thank you.

Your weight loss blog is totally awesome and so inspirational to those who want/need to do the same thing .. I am so thrilled for you. I started the same journey three months ago and have lost 35 pounds. I have a temporary goal to lose 30 more. And then I want to set another goal. My weight right now is 200!! .. can't seem to get below that .. but I will. Today has been a bad day BUT tomorrow is a new day and I start over. You truly are an inspiration to more people than you can imagine! :) .. KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK!
