Amytugs Before and during......
I started losing on 12/11/09.
shirt size 2X
pajama pants 3X
I've lost 53 lbs in 3 short months~ I'm now 185.5.
shirt size XL (almost into an L)
pajama pants XL (almost need an L)
Pleaaase ignore my clothes. I didn't take care of myself when I was fat, and didn't buy clothes until I'd lost about 45 lbs. I'm now wearing clothes that fit( and a bra) and will add more pics when I'm around 160 or so. :)
My long-term goal is 140 (or lower) I'm 5'4.
Awesome! You're looking great! I totally understand about the clothes. I did the same thing!
You look fantastic!! Good for you!! :)
Woweeeee you rawk sista! Oh MY.
...I have seen, when people have weight loss as an obvious result of weight loss, it is the biggest testimony to others of the raw power and they want it.
No worry bout clothes, that doesnt matter and it will come and you will feel so pretty in your new duds!

Thanks everyone. I feel so much better btw- and I LOOOOOVE this diet! 5 years ago I lost 40 lbs doing Weight Watchers points and I liked it at first. First it was like a game.. how much food can I eat for my allotted amt of points, and how much dessert can I eat! Not a very healthy diet- at least not if you do it that way. I got tired of it and then HATED it and failed and gained it all back plus 20 lbs. I just LOVE this diet. I keep finding recipes I love.
down side = I have more dishes because I have 5 kids and they don't eat my diet.. because -downside 2- it's expensive! I'm down with that though, for my heatlh. I wish I could feed all of us like this!
wow wow wow wow wow ... you go girl!!!
Way to GO! Can't see your face or eyes well in the before pic, but I'm guessing there is a big difference there, too. Your face in the after pic is looking bright. With 5 kids you must be putting all that extra raw energy to good use.
Wow! Great job
Uh-MAZING!!!!!! Way to RAWK it, girl!!!
You are not responsible for others reactions to you or assumptions about you. You are only responsible for your response to others.
so inspiring! you look beautiful!
Oh MY! You look FABULOUS! You have done magnificantly there mama absolutely wonderful!!!
I understand what you mean about expense with the kidlets. We are at varying stages (the youngest 5 and me that is). For now I'm comfortable with that because I do not want them going through major detox quickly and during school. There will be time for that in the summer when they are more apt to eat lots of raw anyway.
However one of these days soon I will have to ante up because the three oldest girls are serious about going all raw (15, 14, 11). My youngest (6) is apparently already nearly all raw and I didn't know it because she chooses salads at school which are all raw except the dressing. Last night she asked to start taking a dressing we make at home to school for her salads (where is the wide-eyed drop jaw emoticon when you need it?! lol). She is a gymnast and a soccer player (I should post a picture ....) and eats lots of fruits and apparently more salad than what I have her eat in the evenings! She's the one that begs me to make her a smoothie each afternoon after school *shakes head in wonder* But she is also the one that has had serious food allergies, so it sorta makes sense.
OK, did not mean to hijack your most awesome thread - Please forgive me.... just wanted to commiserate on the expense and let you know another mama is going through the same thing!!!

awwww, you're all so nice.. HOnestly- and I'm not bragging here, but my face/skin is sooooo much smoother and nice looking. that picture is so unflattering! It was taken by my 8 year old with the video camera which obviously doesn't specialize in photo taking. Here is a more recent shot of my face- but ignore my look.. LOL I'm not mad- promise!
My hair isn't orange or red- it's actually light brown with some auburn undertons. not sure what's going on w/ the color but that's about what I look like.. at times my skin has more of a red undertone. I can't believe my chin has shape!
I'll get better pics, like I said soon. Probably when I fit into these size 14's I tried on today that DONT EVEN fit. lol
