What 20 pounds of loss looks like...

Ok so some of you have been asking for me to take pictures of my progression.  I have been doing that... I just haven't put them on here in a while.  So, here we go.  The pictures on the left are of me- 204 pounds.  The ones on the right are of me today- 183 (that's right people, 1 more pound down) pounds.

I can really tell that my boobs are getting smaller and you can start to see that my neck and jaw is starting to show. 

I can tell that I'm standing up taller and there is more room under my arms (they don't touch my fat on my sides).

I'm standing up taller (probably because I don't have as much weight in the front), my butt is getting smaller (it doesn't go up my back), I have shoulder bones, my arms aren't as fat, my belly still sticks out but not as much, oh and my fingers might be a bit thinner.

My back is the most drastic change in my opinion.  You can see that my fat rolls are going down, you can tell that my legs and hips are getting smaller (there's room in between my legs), I don't have so much fat on my back (and it has nice color).  :)

So there you have it.  I'm starting to notice a difference from May until now.  I'm proud of how far I've come and can't wait to go even farther with my weight loss. :) Oh and did you notice that I now smile in my pictures?

Starting weight: 204
Current weight: 183
Pounds lost: 21
Pounds left to lose before first goal: 13 (26 days left, you think I can do it?  Oh heck yeah and then some!)

Oh and have I kept the weight I lost from the cabbage soup diet off?  YES and then some!


  1. The difference is definitely noticeable, especially in the back picture. You are doing so great! I think the biggest difference, though, is that you look soooo much happier. :)


  2. You look great, I can definitely see the difference in the torso area, the top of your belly looks smaller and your back too!

    Great job!

  3. The smile helps a lot, and it looks great !!

  4. I can most definitely see a difference in these pictures! Good job. :)

  5. I frowned on the smaller boobs part...but that was probably just me.

  6. I can tell in all the pictures! Especially face/neck too. You're doing so awesome!!

  7. I am so impressed Leah. Thanks for the inspiration! I wish we lived closer together so I could walk with you.

  20. I rarely leave responses, however i did a
    few searching and wound up here "What 20 pounds of loss looks like...".
    And I actually do have some questions for you if it's allright. Could it be simply me or does it look as if like some of the remarks come across as if they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on additional places, I'd like to follow everything fresh you
    have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of your public
    sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  21. hey there and thank you for your information – I've definitely picked up anything new from right here. I did however expertise several technical issues using this site, as I experienced to reload the site lots of times previous to I could get it to load correctly. I had been wondering if your hosting is OK? Not that I am complaining, but slow loading instances times will often affect your placement in google and can damage your high-quality score if advertising and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I am adding this RSS to my e-mail and can look out for a lot more of your respective exciting content. Make sure you update this again very soon.

  23. Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
