I am feeling discouraged today bees….I started out a few years back at 235 (5’7″)… when FI proposed in Dec 2011 I weighed aprox 205….promised myself I would not get married at that weight and began a diet/exercise program and am now at 165…but when looking at pics I still am feeling ‘blah’. Maybe it’s because im a little older (37)…or maybe I feel like I should be further by now..ugh!! I look at these pics and really don’t notice much of a difference. I guess what really matters is that I am marrying a man who could care less about what I weigh…and that the dress finally fits….lol!
In Feb of 2012 at around 200:
Now at 165:
Anyone else lose weight but still not feeling it??

Lady the difference is beyond crazy. Congrats to you! I think is it hard when we have seen ourselves a certain way for so long….it is hard to see anything different. I lost 140 pounds and yet I still feel hideous some days. We just have to focus on the positive…the new..the healthier us.

You look amazing. I think you are so used to seeing yourself and judging yourself that you can’t see it.

There is a HUGE difference you look AMAZING! It’s hard to see a difference in yourself sometimes because you see yourself everyday and don’t notice that you are getting smaller, especially if you were big for a long time it can be hard to get used to your new body and feel confident about it. But seriously you look great and so much happier!

You can tell the difference and you look awesome. Now tell me what you did to lose it seeing as how I am at the heaviest I have ever been. I am 205lbs and my wedding is Next year. My goal ultimately is to get to 150 but if I can to 165-170 by wedding I’d be ok
