Holy moly! You look fantastic! Those curves are beautiful Goosejuggler. I love my curves and that is one thing I'm afraid of losing when I get down to my goal BUT I think they will still be around no matter what.
So give us some deets! How long, start weight, ending weight, plan you are following, etc...
I can't wait to see more progress pics in the future.

The first was mid-Jan, and I was about 131/130 lbs.
The second was 17th March and I was 118.8lbs.
Thanks for all the nice replies, everyone needs a little ego boost sometimes!!
I was a little worried about losing my hourglass too (I do love it), but something tells me it won't vanish overnight!
Oh and my plan?
I was doing Turbofire before I found primal, and I continued it until about a month ago.
Now I've joined a gym, I'm doing NROLFW three times a week, along with riding my bike and some body balance for fun.
I'm still eating dairy, although I try and limit. Mostly it comes in the form of chocoloate (88% of course!) and mozzarella.
@ MamaGrok: Really? Interesting. What is your protocol for ice packs? (how long/how often)
@ Primitiva: 5'9". Which is notable in and of itself because I used to be 5'8". Working on my posture through yoga and rolfing and stretching (which has helped fix a slight movement-scoliosis in my lower back) is probably the most important factor in that, but the strength training ive done because of primal and the diet heavy in fats and proteins (which is probably good for my spinal cartilage) has likely worked synergistically with all of that.
@ GooseJuggler: Daaaamn, lady! Super hot! xD
- start with fabric between you & the pack
- know that flexible packs (they have alcohol in them, which can dramatically reduce the temperature) can lead to cold damage much more easily
- you want pink or bright red skin, never going white
- if it feels weird or goes white, lay off for a few weeks till that spot's totally healed again. You've done the equivalent of a sunburn - you're not going to die, but you don't want to make a habit of it.
I usually start with fabric each session, then remove it as the skin goes red, checking color occasionally. I just started icing my thighs, too, can't wait for the results.

great job to all
This before photo looks like me at high school graduation (guess who did not get invited to the prom).
You're a great inspiration to me.
You look so strong and healthy -- exactly what I want.
Awesome arms, you look great!
Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.
