View Full Version : 7 months raw with Pics!!
11-27-2007, 10:23 AM
Ok, yikes! Warning - these are not pretty, but I think they show some wonderful results. I've been raw for 7 months now, and have lost 50lbs so far (you can read about my journey thus far in this (http://rawfoodtalk.com/showthread.php?t=34764) thread). A bit more to go, plus a massive amount of toning, but I think it's pretty amazing to see the before and afters (no matter how unflattering they are, lmao :p )
I'll attach the front and back shots here, and the side shots in the next post.
*holding my breath* here goes ........

We also have before and after shots of my husband, who has also made an amazing transformation!! We Love Raw!!!

You have awesome curves! I lost a lot of weight myself, but I don't have the great figure you do. God just didn't make me like that I guess. Lucky you!

Amazing! You look so good! I have been raw about the same time as you and have lost about 20lbs. I wish I would have taken pics when I started!
11-27-2007, 11:35 AM
You just glow with health! I started really close to the time you did and have also released 50 pounds. I have another 30 to go. You are wonderful to share the before and afters with all of us.

Wow you look great, your transformation is amazing. Thank you for sharing.
11-27-2007, 02:07 PM
I am so proud of you and I don't even know you. Your pix are such an inspiration. I cannot believe how much fat you were able to get rid of on the lower part of your back around your hip area from the back shot. That one blew me away. You look so sexy now and I hope you are enjoying every minute of it! And the winner is: YOU!
11-27-2007, 02:12 PM

Wow lady.....those pictures are wonderful and you look MAAAAAAHVELLOUS DAAAAHLING! Ha ha...I think I'll repeat some previous posters when I say, I'm much closer to your before shot, that the after!:rolleyes: But from reading your previous post on how you surpassed your goal, and now seeing your pictures, it's really given me the motivation to keep going, and everytime I think of giving up, or whatever the case may be, I think of your story, and how although it wasn't a perfect journey, it was and is a successful one! Kudos girl!
11-27-2007, 04:37 PM
WOWSIE! :eek: Your transformation is nothing short of AMAZING! You look really, really great..and I bet you feel great as well! Way to go and Way to be healthy, too! You're an awesome role model for your little ones. :)

Thanks for sharing. So awesome- You look great!!:)
11-27-2007, 05:56 PM
Looking absolutely STUNNING there...you know some people wouldnt believe that after having children you could look so beautifully toned and healthy without some kind of surgery. They think losing that is the norm!
Youve proved them wrong in style!
Congrats on your great body!
11-27-2007, 06:04 PM
wow, you look wonderful, those are awesome results, you go girl! :D

Glowy and fresh and light. I want that!

Absolutely awesome!!! You look great!! Congratulations.
11-27-2007, 08:26 PM
Congratulations!! Do you feel VICTORIOUS???
11-27-2007, 08:57 PM
What they all said! Can't say it better.
I second the satisfaction of seeing someone who has had children look so shapely and radiant!
11-28-2007, 11:42 AM
Awww, THANK YOU everyone!! You brought tears to my eyes, and a HUGE grin to my face, lol!
I remember when I was first starting out with raw foods, hearing stories and seeing pictures REALLY helped to inspire and motivate me. There were many times I would get an intense craving, and instead of acting on it, I would hop on to this very board and search for success stories and results pictures. They immediately helped me curb the craving, and become excited about this journey all over again. I am SOOO happy that I am now able to pay that forward to others. Knowing my story/pictures can and will help to motivate or inspire some of you, wow - that's what it's all about!!!
Thank you all so much for the kind comments. They really did warm my heart. Knowing how far I have come, the HEALTHY way this time, fills me with such satisfaction. Hearing others say that they can see that pride and excitment shining through ... thank you!!!
answering some questions...
was it hard?
Honestly, not really. As soon as I switched my thinking from feeling like I was "dieting" and feeling deprived, to knowing I was making a lifestyle change ... it was and is pretty easy. It's just food. We all need food to survive. I'm just choosing to pick the most healthful food options available to me. I used to live to eat (I was consumed with food, and everything food related), and now I'm just eating to live. I mean, I do still get cravings sometimes. And there are times when I get frustrated, and wish I could just "conform" a bit more to the ideal of "socially acceptable" just because it would make life easier at times. But those moments are growing further and further apart. I'm becoming more and more confident in the choices I make, and in the person I am (this was a big issue of mine coming into raw ... self esteem/self confidence). I like who I am (a non conformist in every way, lmao), and I'm proud of the paths I have and am taking. That makes it easier and easier every day.
lmao! I LOVE this expression. I've never heard it before! :p
I cannot believe how much fat you were able to get rid of on the lower part of your back around your hip area from the back shot. That one blew me away.
you and me both! lol. I couldn't believe how much "extra" was back there to begin with, but then seeing the after shots. Wow! What a difference. All because of RAW!
I always check out the neck line. I am a jaw girl haha ;)
haha, ME TOO!!!
Do you feel VICTORIOUS???
I do!! I feel so lucky to have found this path. I feel so empowered and confident with my journey. I cannot say it enough, I Love Raw Foods!!!
11-28-2007, 11:48 AM
You look rawkin'! You've done amazing!:D I'm so happy for you! Who says you can't be a homeschooling mama and still be hot?!;) :D
11-28-2007, 11:55 AM
Mialsse, and I thought I was doing good going totally raw for two months now!
I'm sure your husband is very pleased with the results as you are too!
11-28-2007, 12:21 PM
Congrats!!! You look absolutely amazing!!! Keep up the good work! And congratulations on having a husband to join you on your raw journey. How wonderful!

Wow! Not only are you the incredibly beautiful shrinking woman, but it looks like your stretch marks are gone! Please tell me it is so! After 2 kids (my first was almost 10 lbs) I have some unsightly marks that I'd like to "release".
