Is anyone willing to share their before and after weight loss pics?
I have hit a plateau and don't want to loose motivation.
I will share mine once i have finished. I will try and find pic of me before starting and one now.
08/06/2006, 06:06 PM
Just wanted to say you look GREAT
08/06/2006, 06:54 PM
Bueller that's amazing! You look like a completely different person. You must be so proud of yourself!
08/06/2006, 07:16 PM
Sarah you look totally amazing!! I'm speechless you have definately inspired me to keep on going. Will have to get DH to take a photo of me so I can put on a before and middle
08/06/2006, 07:24 PM
Thats amazing you look soooooooooooooo much younger!
08/06/2006, 07:35 PM
Sarah - what an inspiration you are!!! You look fantastic and may I ask how you achieved this. I am currently doing Weight Watchers which is great but am finding after 5kg all motivation is slowly going
Help me achieve what you have please......
I need to lose another 20kg.
Edited to add - Kaz you have done an amazing job as well , would love some tips from you also.. Thanks..
08/06/2006, 07:36 PM
I started dieting 15 Feb 2006 so it's been about 15 weeks now but the only before shot I have is at Xmas 2005 as I hated photos back then, still do actually. Sorry about the sour puss face I have on the tonight shot but annoyed with DH at the time as he was stuffing up the photos so fully over it.http://s34.photobucket.com/albums/d130/cou...re%20and%20Now/
08/06/2006, 07:54 PM
Kaz, you photo from tonight is tiny in size, can't see it!
And you know I can't wait too! Woohoo doing great
08/06/2006, 08:01 PM
And getting a bigger head by the minute!
And so you should!!!
08/06/2006, 08:03 PM
Wow Sarah how gorgeous do you look!!. Well done, that is just amazing. Come on Sandy I wanna see some of yours as well
. Kaz, you have lost so much weight, you must feel so good about yourself, you girls are my inspiration when I am about to eat something naughty I think of how well you have done and I feel like I can do it.
08/06/2006, 08:13 PM
Love to see some more recent shots Sandy!!
Hey Sandy tried on that skirt tonight you gave me and nearrrrrly fits me lol!
08/06/2006, 08:22 PM
I posted mine not that long ago and not a lot changed since then, have been unwell and not exercising much at all, but am happy to report that even after 3 weeks of tonsilitis, laryngitis then bronchitis then gastro I still lost a kg!
But by request here I am again
Okay so here is me late last year at my heaviest (hiding behind Laci) and here I am a few weeks back after losing 36kg in 6 months! Being a little cheeky doing a chicken impersonation lol.
I have gone from a size 22 to now a 14 and some 12's! (EEEK!) Aiming for 50kg total loss by the end of the year.
And I just did I quick face compare, this is me on the day I started dieting in late November 05 and me 2 weeks ago. I almost don't recognise my reflection these days!
Hope I have inspired!
Edited to add:
WOOHOO Kaz on the skirt, don't forget I am holding you up to that promise of a photo in it lol.
No recent piccies of me except the face one I just posted, but am definately back on the wagon now I am well again
Edited agian to add:
I just saw the photo's of you Kaz, looking great! But where is that big "I am so darn proud of myself!" smile?? Okay maybe thats only me that has become vein? lol
You can really tell the difference, congrats
08/06/2006, 08:27 PM
Sad to hear you haven't been well Sandy
But pleased to hear your on the mend and back on the wagon
Your face shots just blow me away totally your family wont recognise you when you see them next, wow you must feel amazing you are my inspiration girl a size 14 can't wait until I can say that and I will definately post that piccy of me in the skirt when I get into it.
I was a size 28 and now size 18 on the top and size 20 on the bottom but for some reason that size 16 skirt I can put on and do it half up but not the rest of the way must be big size 16 lol!
08/06/2006, 08:31 PM
This is me in May last year at 98kg.
And this is me in March of this year at 72.2kg.
I now weigh about 71.5kg, and have hit a huge plateau, and all motivation has left the building!!! <_<
08/06/2006, 08:35 PM
oh wow you guys are all incredible! you must be so proud
08/06/2006, 08:39 PM
I know what a shocker I was annoyed with DH at the time as he was either taking the photo to close or to far.
08/06/2006, 08:40 PM
Wow! You all look great!
08/06/2006, 09:23 PM
All you other girls look GREAT! Lara you're looking HOT darl, plateau or not, you're doing so well!
Kaz there is a huge difference between that pic and the last 'update' one I saw of you. Congratulations girl, you are doing a fantastic job!
Sarah, you're looking fantastic, and you're looking even more gorgeous in that pic since the last time I saw you.
Sandy, you know I think you look great, I love seeing your updated pics, there's always a huge difference.
Keep up the great work girls!
Now, my before pics are terrible, but I'll be brave and put one up. I don't have one at my highest, this one was at 111kg. (start was 118kg)
And I've still got a tummy tuck and 5kg to go, so not quite at the end of my journey, but close enough to be able to show an ok after pic LOL This was taken about 2 weeks ago on a girls night out, so I was a little bit tipsy LOL.
Can't wait to see all these other inspirational photos, I need a bit of a kick up the bum again!
08/06/2006, 09:56 PM
Micaela you look.........well what can I say I'm sitting here almost dying at how incredibley fantastic you look, I totally cannot put into words, you are just so thin now!! I don't think you need to lose anymore you look just great. Wish I could afford a tummy tuck when I'm finished
Edited to add - Micaela don't know how old you are but you look so young now like your only 18yo.
Everyone else is also looking good, haven't I read that Flicker has lost a lot recently? Would love to see some photos of yourself also.
09/06/2006, 07:40 AM
Wish I could say I was 18, but I'm almost 25
Although it's funny the amount of people who say I look younger after losing the weight. My new hairdresser thought I was way too young to have 2 kids LOL. I think there was a post on EB a little while ago about looking younger after you've lost weight. I think everyone here has definately proven that it's true!
My mum loves that dimple too, she's happy now that she can see it again LMAO
09/06/2006, 08:31 AM
You all look fantastic, so inspirational. I thought I would post my before and current photos.
Here is my before shot I was 117kg just after having DD#2
Here is my now shot at 92kg
I still have another 12kg to go but I am pretty happy at how I look and feel. I now fit into a size 16 pants size 14 tops, I have never been a size 14 before so pretty happy
09/06/2006, 08:54 AM
WOW Hot Mumma's
You all look fantastic! Just the boost i need.
Im about to go through all my pics and find a before pic...
I think wow is all i can say, I'm blown away.
09/06/2006, 11:53 AM
Wow! Everyone looks fantastic! I hope I can get to the pount where I can post a beforeand after shot. ATM, both photos look the same!!
Keep up the good work!
09/06/2006, 12:03 PM
Deleted. I thought better of it.
09/06/2006, 01:01 PM

after seeing all of you's i found some motivation...
WELL DONE YOU ALL DESREVE IT..
09/06/2006, 01:35 PM
I was just thinking to myself I'm not sure if any of you realise but quite sometime ago back in 1997 I went from 160kgs to 74kgs in around 18 months, thought you may like to have a look. I did maintain the 70+kgs for about 6 months then fell pregnant and slowly went from there lol! This time is for good though.
The baby in the photo is my nephew.
09/06/2006, 01:44 PM
WOW, thats amazing.. Micaela u look HOT.. lol.. i started to lose weight just before i got pregnant and managed to get rid of 13kgs, then fell preg but have actually lost again in the preg.. so im going to be coming back when baby is out and i can get down to goal weight.. thanks for the pics guys
09/06/2006, 07:12 PM
After getting a reality check from some friends (thanks Ampstar & Mickeyboo) I decided that I should put my before and progress photos up. Bear in mind that I still have about 40kgs to lose.
First photo I was around the 130kg mark.
This is the current photo at 110kgs.
09/06/2006, 07:12 PM
You girls look great. So glad I came in for a look as now made me not want to head for the pantry that I was planning on doing!
09/06/2006, 07:22 PM
Far out girls u look fabulous....
U have inspired me i am now going to go on a diet i will take some pics tomorrow and then i will post once i have lost a few kilos gees this is inspiration.
09/06/2006, 07:34 PM
i just wanted to say, WOW!
Well done, it can be hard losing those extra kg's, so you should all be very proud of yourselves
I managed to put on around 17kgs with bubba, Im back to pre-pregnancy weight, however ive got about another 8kg to get to my perfect weight.
It always amazes me how you look like a whole different person when you lose a considerable amount of weight
09/06/2006, 08:34 PM
Kylee you look great you look like a totally new person, your so pretty and I love your shirt lol!
I weigh the same as you 110kgs at the moment, keep the photos coming guys you are all inspiring me. Flicker if your reading this I would love to see your before and after photos please you give such good advise to us all and I love to read what your up to so really want to put a face to the name lol! Plus be inspired by you.
By the way Micaela I haven't stopped telling everyone I speak to today about you, you really have blown me away with your photos I can't wait until I get to where you are.
09/06/2006, 08:53 PM
Thanks for the encouragement ladies - it makes me feel really good considering I had hit a bit of a plateau.
Everybody looks bloody fabulous. This thread is just such a great ego booster.
I agree that this should be a sticky as well. Hmmm, off to see if the mods agreee.
09/06/2006, 09:26 PM
This is a fabulous thread. I'm just starting on this, and have 50 kgs to lose. But I'm thinking of posting a pic, to make me accountable, as you guys are so brave, and so inspiring.
09/06/2006, 09:33 PM
Can I just say how awesome you all look!!!
You girls should have your own weightloss magazine..I am serious..Maybe it could be the EB DIET- guarenteed to change you life!!
My hats go off to you all of your beautiful ladies!! You are all an inspiration!!
Kylee & Mic- You already know what I think of you girls!!
And Kylee, I am so damn proud of you at the moment I have tears in my eyes.
09/06/2006, 10:44 PM
Come on, bring it on. I'd love to see a photo. I have to admit the 1st time I posted a "fat photo" (for want of a better word)was a real turning point. This is a great journey that we can all be on together. On and can I add - I just adore that photo of Alexander. He's such a cutie.
Anna, you are just such a sweetie. Beneath that cowgirl exterior is a heart of gold. So anyway where are your photos???
10/06/2006, 05:44 AM
Before 110 kilos
After 77 kilos
I haven't been around in a long while, but saw this thread today when I decided to poke my nose in. Everyone who is awaiting emails/ posts from me will get them soon, I promise!!
These photos show me at 110 kilos after pregnancies during which I was terribly depressed and put on loads and loads of weight, I am now 77 kilos and bouncing up and down a little. My ultimate goal is to get as close to 70 as I can and see how it feels!
I took weight off my dieting strictly and exercising madly. Its taken two years to get to here as I have a lot of ups and downs. Hope to get to goal by October for my brother's wedding.
Edited to say: Everyone looks fabulous!!!!!
Edited to say- I am now nearly 74 kilos!
10/06/2006, 06:24 AM
Thank you all so much for posting these photos. It is such an inspiration to someone like me who is just starting out.
Well done, I think you all look amazing.
10/06/2006, 09:07 AM
Renia I just have to say wow, you look fantastic. Come on Melissa post that photo, it will be the start of a new life for you and we will be here to keep you going. If I can do it believe me so can you.
10/06/2006, 10:35 AM
OMG Renia - you look so healthy and gorgeous.
10/06/2006, 10:43 AM
I actually am planning to. The problem is, I don't have a recent one (I avoid photos like the plague). I will try to get Joel to take one this weekend.
Sarah, I would LOVE to be stalked by you!
10/06/2006, 02:55 PM
WOW all you girls look Fabulous, good on you all for sticking to it and getting closer and closer to your goal and a big pat on the back for you guys that have reached them.
And thanks so much for posting your pics it is a really big inspiration.
I will dig around and see what I can find
10/06/2006, 05:45 PM
Thought I'd add mine, even though I'm having a bit of a 'stuck' moment atm!! (lots of stress and a busy time at work/home).
Here's me at in November 2003 @ around 130kgs:
and here's me in April this year, I'm now 88 kilos. Haven't changed an awful lot since then.
Oh, and you girls all look FABULOUS!!
ETA: I'm back at EB after a long absence and some really horrible times. My weight is back up to nearly where I started before. Above is the last one of me slim(ish).
Back to the drawing board...
10/06/2006, 06:36 PM
I must say all you ladies look fantastic and are doing so well
10/06/2006, 06:38 PM
Joined Weight Watchers (Online) today.
10/06/2006, 08:35 PM
Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou ...................
You are all looking soooo great and are just the motivation I need to get me on track again.
You should all be so proud of yourselves because IMO losing weight is the hardest thing to do but putting it on ....well thats another thing
10/06/2006, 08:40 PM
What can I say WOW
10/06/2006, 09:48 PM
Well done Melissa.
Bellamy you look wonderful, I am also stuck at the moment after been sick for the past 2 weeks, I will be back on track on Monday.
NicoleF I have no objections, if my journey can help just one person I would be very proud.
10/06/2006, 10:49 PM
Thanks NicoleF I do feel so much fitter I was actually very sick in that before photo as I had sugar levels at 35 I'm a type 2 diabetic and HBP at 200/120 with suspected stroke and they wanted to put me in Hospital but I absolutely refused as I said no-one was going to ruin my son's Xmas. How stupid I was huh!
I have no objections either but you may not want to use mine yet as I still have probably at least 50kgs to lose yet.
Edited to say - Mel, Renia and Nicoleiv you all look fabulous.
10/06/2006, 11:04 PM
well done ladies, to each and everyone one of you...a hearty congratulations for having the guts to put your photo on eb and for allowing us to be motivated to no end by your truly astounding results. Can't wait to shed my second skin
woohoo look out summer!!!!
ETA - you all look like HOTTIES
