Before and Current Pictures (Jennifer)





I think its time to post some before and after pics.  However, the before pic is not really the before because I was already down 20 lbs before taking that pic.  And, the after pic is truly not an "after" at all because it is me right now and I am far from done!  Here is me at 206 lbs when I first started Medifast and already 20 lbs down from my highest weight:




And here are some recent pictures I have of me now at 165.5.  I am down 61 lbs total including the 20 I lost before Medifast.  There is a difference of 41 lbs between these pics.  After looking at these I realized that I look really tired and my hair looks awful in all of them.  But hey, these are the pics I have so thats what I am posting!  I really had no intention of putting these on here and had my hubby take them for me for ME to compare my progress.  But maybe its time to share.  I see lots of differences but still see a lot of work needed in my midsection.  I was looking at it in the mirror trying to figure out why I have soooo much extra skin in my midsection.  I mean I was big but the amount of skin seems excessive for my high weight of 226.  Then it hit me.  When I was pregnant with my first daughter she was transverse (laying sideways in my uterus) until a whopping 36 weeks when she amazingly decided she should get in proper position of head down.  So...my stomach stretched pretty far left to right and I was really wide.  Now it makes sense.  She was and is totally worth it even though my body is all stretched out  :)

Anyway it took a lot of guts for me to post these so please be "gentle".  hehe.

Amazing progress! I hate that there is extra skin on my mid ruff too, even though I've lost 80 pounds. I get the frustration!

You look awesome! Seriously, you should be so proud. I am scared of extra skin that I know I will have in mass amounts but I would rather have the skin empty than full of fat!
