Progress Pictures

With the boyfriend…

Me at the pub.

This is me right now…….the biggest I’ve ever been. I keep looking at these photos and I can’t actually believe it’s me. In some respects I think my mind tricks me into believing I’m not this overweight. I just try to block it out of my memory.

I’ve never said this out loud, or even Β put it into print. Not even my boyfriend of 9 years knows this.

So, here goes…*sigh*…..93. That’s my number. I weigh 93kg.

Okay, so I feel like crawling into a hole right now.  😦


So, I know these have been a bit overdue, but here are some progress pics of me. They look kinda similar, but I’m told I’m losing more in body fat percentage than actual kilos. Well, atleast I’m losing something! And it all seems to be going on the legs and bum……I bet the tummy’s going to be the last to go! **Sigh**

I’m hoping to “wow” you all with new pics at the end of April……fingers crossed! x

  1. Hey Lynne,

    Know the feeling hun – have just started my weight loss journey as reached the point that you have.

    Am sure you will do great and be at goal weight by your birthday next year but will keep an eye on your progress mate.

    Knowing you from when we worked together I KNOW you can do it. Wishing you loads of luck.


  2. Hey Lynne
    I am very proud of you for doing this. Making it very public puts a lot of responsibility on you to do what you have set out to do.
    Some tips:
    Don’t be too hard on yourself.
    The most important thing is that it’s your body and you HAVE to love it and in loving it you will take the best care of it that you can. I know that a lot of the time we look in the mirror and really just dislike what we see, but we need to somehow get beyond that and really learn to love our bodies because that is when we lose weight and remain happy doing it.
    Exercise is excellent. Don’t push too hard. Remember, your body is not used to doing 100 situps from the start. Start with 5 and work your way up. Once you get into your excercise regime you’ll feel more energised and positive and it will become like a drug… something you just have to do every day in some way.
    Once we are in a relationship with a guy for a while we find ourselves eating the same size portion as the man we’re with…. bad bad bad. We are generally not supposed to eat as much because they burn more calories than us! Your goal to no longer go for seconds is EXCELLENT. That is the best way to start reducing your portion sizes. Well done!

    I’ll be keeping my eye on you lady. No more feeling bad about eating…. if you want a piece of pizza…. have a bite or two just to satisfy your tastebuds. Savour the taste, chew slowly. Swallow slowly and enjoy. Sometimes withholding foods makes us yearn for them and then when we reach a breaking point we eat far too much. Me.. during exams… I can finish a whole slab of chocolate in one sitting… days later I regret it still. Instead of just having one block and enjoying it.

    Good luck my friend!!

    • Thanks Shanny! I do feel different…..not just the way I feel about myself, but I can also see the changes in my clothes. I bought myself a new pair of black jeans the other day and they look awesome on! Yay! πŸ™‚

  3. Wow! I am such a fan of progress photos. It took a lot of deliberation before I eventually decided to just upload my pictures and forget about always trying to get the most flattering shot. They have single handedly changed the way I feel about myself over the past 6 months.

    Bravo! Very inspiring. Your transformation from March to July is incredible!

    • Thank you so much for your lovely comments!
      I know what you mean….progress photos are terrifying. But once you accept that it’s something you want to move on from, it just becomes something you leave behind. Looking back, it’s always great to see the change!

      • Yup! The fear inherent in putting unflattering photos of your ass in tight gym pants up on the internet for the world to see.

        My boyfriend remarked that I was brave to be uploading those pictures of myself for all my friends to see, but I said that they see me every day, they know what I look like anyway! πŸ˜€
