here's mine.. I'm nowhere near finished, and ony just over half way. But still I wish I could go back in time and show past me a photo and a list of the physiological changes I would have . It would have made a sh!teload of things easier! THere are loads of non-scale benefits that are far more satisfyling. I'm less of a tired grumpy biatch, and am a better person.
First pic Jan 2014 -121kg (266lbs) high blood pressure , major food issues, couldnt climb stairs without puffing.
Last pic, 104kg (228lbs) can squat 80kg (176lbs) normal BP,far greater stamina for exercise.
I sometimes feel my transformation isnt as wothrwhile because I didt have any major health issues. However at 34 I am sure they were on my doorstep, and that i have avoided them.
Long, long way to go before I'm at my ideal health and body composition, but I am very happy with my progress so far and how sustainable this lifestyle is for me. The best thing so far is how calm and happy I feel in comparison to how I felt on the sugar-rollercoaster, and that doesn't show in pictures.
I'm in my early 30s, female and 5'4"

Great job pastorldreams!
Pictures are a great way to keep track of progress. But your numbers are pretty impressive too.
I also think getting off the sugar rollercoaster is the best part!
Keep up the good work
That is an awesome start chsil91! I deal with heartburn too, for a long long time. I hope getting into this lifestyle will help me with that. I have about 60 pounds I would like to drop, but really I am more concerned with the shape my body takes and it's composition. Just want to be healthy
