Oh my gosh, you girls have done so well and look so good, I feel silly posting my before and afters!
(sorry for the large picture sizes)
9weeks later at 64kgs

Don't feel silly Lilac, you look fantastic, why not show off your hard work, it helps to keep others inspired to do the same. Good on you.
Kerith, you look amazing, good on you. I too am another one a bit worried about the 'overhang' after I lose my weight. I've lost 13kg so far and I can notice the difference already but sure hope to be smaller in another 18kg till I get to goal.
Go the breast reduction I say, all for it I had one in August last year and am now running and it is so empowering. I have never been able to run before so it's the best feeling and just to look and feel 'normal' iykwim. Definately worth looking into when you're ready.
Thanks also for sharing with us how to got to be looking so fabulous. It sure does help to keep me motivated and know that I can do it, Congratulations

SEAL - It didn't take me that long as I was so determined to do it. 23.5kg in 7 months all up. When I thought about it carefully, I decided that firstly, my health was worth it AND I was probably saving at least the meeting fee in my grocery bill each week I also didn't join a gym this time - just walked the neighbourhood. Now that I am not paying for WW, I will consider joining a gym for something different to do.

Well I weigh...way too much to say right now! I used to way 55 even after my babies were born. But now I have thyroid and have put on stacks of weight. I want to lose 20kilos to start with. I sometimes dont feel that heavy but then I see a picture of myself. Today I walked into a shopping mall and I didnt know the big girl coming for me, it was ME!! I couldnt believe it!
My dr put me on duromine because my weight has gotten out of hand. Im starting it on saturday so my husband is home incase I get too jittery to drive, I cant believe my life has come to this!
Oh well, heres to a new start. 2008 is MY YEAR!!

Girls! You are all so inspiring.... I have quite a bit of weight to lose - around 50kgs all up and thethought of it makes me feel like eating more... My biggest fear or stumbling block is how do I just keep going - how do I maintain the momentum, and my second biggest fear is what happens if i am successful and then the weight comes back. I've been a yo-yo dieter my entire life and the kgs have always come back (and brought friends)..... I'm so glad I found this thread - you are incredibly inspiring and it's exactly what I need. The dream is to really kick butt in the weight dept before trying for #2.....

I thought I was lucky enough to be able to grace the pages of before and afters!!! LOL!!
I just hope it inspires someone.
I am Abbey (28) and when I met my DH 10 years ago I was around 66kg. I quit smoking and partying and became happily engaged @19 years old. My weight went up to about 90kg when I fell pg with DD when I was 21.
My journey...was long!... The first 2 photos are of me 5 years ago when I was ballooned out to my heaviest of around 102kg. (not including my heaviest weight EVER at full term with DD @ 118kg) I was a out of control binge eater. I had out of control PCOS and facing secondary infertility issues at the time of these pics. It was Dec 02 and Jan-Feb 03. I began my weight loss journey when I conceived my first DS. I only gained 8kg the entire pregnancy (a far cry from the almost 30kg I gained during my first pregnancy) I then went on to breastfed him and sat happily around the 90kg mark and dropped to around 86kg when I fell pregnant naturally whilst breastfeeding to my surprise while DS1 was only 9 months old. I then went on to sit at 100kg at full term with DS2 and lost it all in the first few months of his birth. I began seriously doing something active to lose weight over a year ago and went to the gym and really adopted my low GI lifestyle. Over the last 12 months I have used the gym at first (lost motivation after about 5 months) and then my last tool and still currently using Reductil. I now weight a healthier 72kg. For me to be at classed as 'healthy weight' according to the BMI calculator I have 4kg to go. I am happy to drop another 2kg to be at my 'goal weight'. The current photos of me are of a few weeks ago at a wedding. I WAS a size 18-20 now a 12-14. I am not one of those ads that can say I dropped my 30kg's in 30 weeks. It has taken me 5 years LOL! well, minus 2 of those years with pregnancies etc... I now eat low GI. I eat everything in MODERATION. I quiver at the thought of going back to those dreaded pics of me...

Abbey you look amazing!!! WELL DONE!!!
Kerith - you too!
I love this thread and have for about two years now
I am going to add some recent ones too!
So, in 2006 I weighed 88-89kgs. I then got down to 71, fell pregnant and had my son Liam. 5 months after his birth I am now 69kgs (thanks to a lot of hard work) and would ideally love to loose about 2kgs more and tone a little more also.
Eeeeewwwww, the before makes me shudder!!

You look gorgeous,MelMac.
So do you Abbey...
Very inspiring ladies,thanks for sharing
Posted 24 March 2008 - 03:47 PM
Wow... Mel_Mac, you're very inspiring.... so how did you do it??
Posted 25 March 2008 - 06:30 PM
Emla - Thanks
I honestly still have moments where I look in the mirror and think "hey, do I know you". I was just so used to being unhappy with my appearance.
Anyway, to be completely honest it was all through blood, sweat and tears
I started with a 6 week period of Lite N easy just to get the eating on track. At the same time I also purchased a treadmill off Ebay and started walking for about 20 minutes a day. I kept a food and feelings diary and rewarded myself with a shiny gold star sticker on days where both food and excercise where in sync
As I became fitter I gradually increased both the speed and duration of my walks. After some time I added some running into it. I started with interval training, so 1 min jog at a certain speed, then another at a higher speed and one more with speed increased again, then back to a walk. I repeated this 4 times to start with. I was then able to do 6 intervals and now I easily can do 8. I also increased the speed each few weeks to continue pushing myself. I started at speeds of 4-6 and now run at no less than 13-15
I increased my water intake, reduced my sugar, changed my eating habbits, ate smaller meals and started weight training.
I now jog an average of 40kms a week, eat 6 small meals a day, drink lots of water and weight train 2-3 times a week. Oh, I also have a pole dancing lesson once a week It's great for abs and arms
Once the weight started coming off I was so elated and energised it became addictive and well, just a way of life.
Wishing you all the best! YOU CAN DO IT

I have lost 33 kilos since the 28th of July Last year after having my second child.
Not sure how to add the photo of my kids fitting in my old jeans with me.
Posted 01 April 2008 - 09:39 AM
nat- Oh you have to share the photo o your kids fitting into your jeans Do you have photobucket? I am not sure how to explain it hopefully someone else can/will?
Posted 01 April 2008 - 12:17 PM
Finally worked out photo bucket, after a few attempts. Thanks for that. Here is my before photo on the 28/7/2008 & after on the 6/2/2008 33 kilos later.
I was even on TV the other week on Brisbane extra showing my kids in my jeans.

I thought it was about time to stop looking at the amazing pics in here and post some of my own. Everyone has done so well!
ok so a fat me: At around 94kgs (I was giving my DH a dirty look)
And now at 67.5kg (my shirt is a bit loose, my tummy is thinner than it seems in the pic, though I still have a small pudge )
No head cause I don't have my scarf on plus I was pulling a funky facial.

nat- totally amazing. The photo with the boys and jeans is a classic Excellent effort.
Bluemakede what an amazing transformation. You look so different. Fantastic effort there. Did you use a specific program?
Posted 10 April 2008 - 09:22 PM
Stef - That is utterly amazing! We have lost similar amounts of weight (and had a similar starting weight) but you look like a different person now. How good do you feel? How has your life changed to get this weight loss?
Posted 11 April 2008 - 11:57 AM
Stef - you look sensational!!! Well done! So, what was your tips?
Posted 15 April 2008 - 07:25 PM
Wow you ladies look amazing .
Any chance of the earlier ladies in this thread reposting thier before and after.Some have expired or been deleted.
I am trying to decide what to go with WW or Tony Ferguson.
I did Tony Ferguson last year and lost 18kgs but then stupidly got back into old habits.I am to scared to weight myself .
Posted 15 April 2008 - 08:11 PM
Wow, these before and after pics are amazing. You guys have done a fantastic job with your weight loss. Very impressive and inspiring.
Posted 16 April 2008 - 04:02 PM
The key to maintaining weight loss is NOT solely cleansing and ridding toxins. In fact I have done neither of those things and I've kept my weight off for over a year including a pregnancy in between. I have achieved this through healthy eating (NOT dieting) and excercise!
You will find MANY women (including Kerith, Bean, Jen just to name a few) who have done the same.

Whilst I have no issue with 'cleansing' diets, soup, cabbage, shakes - whatever it may be, I take issue with the insinuation it's the ONLY way (as I feel the PP has time and time again) when as we know, our weight loss efforts were so much more than that
