Okay, getting started. I'm going to try and take a picture every week or two and I will try to get some measurements today as well.

Here's me at 208 pounds. Really depressing. I took a full body shot so I could really see the transformation. This was taken in my basement.

October 13 - 208


November 2 - 193


November 29 -183


January 28 - 167


April 7 - 158


May 17 - 147



November 18, 2008 - 148 still, but 30.4% body fat. I'm aiming for 22% body fat.



I look kind of dorky here, but I'm not so good at making muscles. I was trying.

Measurements from November 20, 2008

Waist - 31
Hips - 39
Chest - 36
Thigh - 23.5
Calf - 13.5
Biceps - 11.5

January 2, 2009 - 138.7




Measurements from November 20, 2008

Waist - 28
Hips - 36.5
Chest - 34
Thigh - 21.5
Calf - 13
Biceps - 10

Teresa, I think you are beautiful regardless of your weight! I can understand your wanting to get healthier though!!!!! At my heaviest I weighed 220 (talk about EMBARASSING!) and I currently weigh 182. I need to lose another 30lbs to get to my first goal. If I can lose what I have lost so far, anyone can, seriously! (I have NO will power, mind you!)

Anyway, just wanted to cheer you on!!! You can do it, I know you can!!!

P.S. Do you have dream dinners where you are? I just started doing it, and they say that most of their dinners are < 10 grams of fat and < 350 calories. Their dinners are awesome so far, too. Just wondering....

Never heard of them. They sound cool, but none where I live. I have lost 70 lbs before so I know I can do it. I can't wait to fill this post up with pics!

I recommend also taking your measurements and either posting them here or keeping track of them at home somewhere. Even if you don't notice a lot of weight loss, you will probably still notice inches being lost. Good for you for posting your picture to give yourself motivation!

I was planning to post measurements when I posted my pictures, but haven't been able to find my measuring tape. I'm going to try and get a new one soon and get them posted.

Just adding my 2cents:
The first pic, you dont look 208 lbs at all! I think you might have heavy bones since you are not that fleshy for that weight.

Nice progress!!

I can see a huge difference and can't wait to see more pics.

I agree you did not look like you were 208.

You look great!

Thanks, I can't wait to be able to take more pics! I have to say though I felt all of 208 pounds in my starting pics, my clothes did too, but I am happy with what I have done so far and can't wait to show off my final goal pic. When I get there of course.

Teresa
