Can't wait for the pictures, meaganoff!
I have some preliminary pics - 'during' pics, I guess. I was completely unable to lose even a pound after the first week postpartum, and after two months of eating only real, traditional foods, just one or two servings of properly prepared grains a day with lots of fats & grassfed organic everything, I decided to take out the grains completely and lose all fruits other than berries.
The first two are Jan '10 & Nov '10. 185 & 156, at 5'4".
These are July '10 & Nov '10, 170 & 156. By July, my gut was at least no longer pushing my clothes out, but still had a long way to go!
What I'm loving the most is the change in my face - it's always been heart-shaped, and is going back that way, thankfully! These are 12/09 & 11/10.
I've lost at least 10" in my waistline, iirc. I feel infinitely better than I did at this weight on the way up, and am fitting into clothes that I wore at 10-15lbs lighter than I was on the way up. There's really no comparison with the way I feel - physically, it's incomparable, and emotionally, much more even keel. I'll never go back, even if I don't lose another inch.
