25 Pounds Gone Forever-Medifast Weekly Weigh In

OMGeeeeeeee!!!!! I am so excited to be able to write this blog post today. Who has been waiting to see progress pictures? Well, today you are going to get plenty of them.

It seems like it has taken me forever to get here. I was teetering on the edge of 25 pounds all week, then all of a sudden I had a good drop in weight. That being said, I got rid of another 2.5 pounds for a total of 26 pounds!!

This journey has not been an easy one. I have had ups and downs and cravings and just wanting to eat, but I feel like now I am in a groove and there is no looking back. I am getting rid of this weight for good.

I was visiting with Jennifer last night and we decided to take some progress pictures. I will warn you that some of them aren’t pretty and I wore a tight shirt on purpose so I would be able to see my progress.

The first picture is a face shot. It seems like I am getting a little more definition in my cheeks and they are moving away from just fat, round cheeks.

Next we did two pictures from the front. One with hands on hips:

25 Pounds Gone

And one without…….noticing the MUCH looser shirt…….

I have to tell you that in losing 25 pounds, I feel a lot better. I don’t ache as much, my clothes are much, much looser and I think I will be going down a size in around another 10 or 15 pounds. I am so excited about that.

The next picture was where I felt like I saw the most change. It is a picture of me from the side.

25 Pounds Gone

I have to say that until I started really looking and analyzing the pictures, I just felt like my weight loss so far was not that big of a deal. I have a feeling that is because I have so much weight to lose and 25 pounds is just a drop in the bucket. When I actually started analyzing the pictures, it had more of an impact on me about how much 25 pounds actually is.

It is not just a drop in the bucket. If you pick up a 25 pound bag of something it gets quite heavy after carrying it around for a while. All of a sudden I got this renewed sense of excitement when losing weight.

I can’t wait for the next 25 pounds to be gone to share more pictures with you all. I strongly encourage anyone just starting out on an eating plan or healthy life style to take before pictures. If you ever get down or tired of your weight loss efforts, take a new picture and compare it to your old ones and it should help you feel better about what you have done.

The last picture we took was just a fun one because I knew that my husband would like it!!

    Congratulations! This is wonderful!

  • Jessica Fletcher

    Wow! I think the best one was your face! I definitely see a difference. So fun to see the positive change you’re making is having an impact!

  • Karen H.

    AMAZING!!!! I can’t believe that’s the same shirt, there is such a big difference in the fit. Your chin & neck are thinner too. I’ve been using Diet Bet as a motivation tool and at the end of each one I compare my weigh-in and weigh-out photos. I’m always amazed because I just don’t see it in the mirror that’s probably because I also have a lot of weight to lose. I do feel motivated when I see even a small difference.

    Congrats and keep it up! I know you have to feel a lot better already and have you noticed that some of your little aches and pains from before have disappeared? Mine have. :-)

    When I lost my first 15 lbs I felt like I could tell zero difference by looking in the mirror. My clothes felt loose but I couldn’t see it…until I took a progress picture. Then I saw just how much of a difference that 15 lbs made. Now I have lost 45 lbs of my 70 lb goal and people tell me everyday how much different I look. Give it another couple if months and EVERYONE will notice!!

  • Lauren

    I barely ever comment, but YOU LOOK AMAZING! Congrats on the weight loss and so excited to see your progress moving forward.

    Congratulations! That is amazing! You are looking fantastic and should be very proud. I didn’t take photos at the start, but now I’m taking photos every 10 pounds. It’s a good reminder of where I’ve come from and where I don’t want to go back to.
