I ordered these videos:
Ballet Beautiful - Store - DVDs and Merchandise
I have taken a look at them and I like them-just gave myself a start date of 1 June
have a great day
7 months primal pics
So, the weight has plateaued between 16 and 18 lbs lost, depending on the day. I think the body composition continues to improve, as does my strength and endurance. I have lost 2 pant sizes.

I'm probably done posting photos for a while, unless I get a big drop. I'll be back to check on all your progress, and will check in with my own photo every 3 months to prove that this is sustainable.

Nice pics mommymd, I can see some subtle changes between those 3 month and 7 month pics. You look thinner in the face and your midsection seems to be slimming as well. Nice work!
Went Primal July 25th, 2011.

My Weight Loss Notes Now on a blog page. It starts with "My Weight Loss: Introduction." Available to the public, share with friends if you'd like!
mommymd, I see *big* changes between months 3 and 7! As trekfan said, your face is slimmer and your tummy is flatter. Also, where your arm meets your torso is slimmer (great for upcoming summer weather!). It's amazing how much change can happen with very little (or no) weight loss, isn't it?
I didn't think I'd be posting in the success thread any time soon, but here I am.
I'm posting a progress photo. The second was taken approximately 15-20 days after the first photo (!!).
I've deflated from 186 lbs to ~178.5 lbs. I wanted to post because it doesn't look like major weight loss, but I just look so much less "swollen" that I thought it'd be worth sharing. This is a 7.5 lbs difference (I'm 5'10"):
Diet: No dairy or nuts besides Kerrygold. No drinking calories, protein shakes, extra sauces, etc. Haven't been worrying about carbs (mmm potatoes). Eating low calorie.
Workouts have been walking, maybe 4-5 times a week. I've only recently started a weightlifting regimen and sprinting to keep pushing.
More to come, I hope!!!!

@Mommymd: Great progress, it may not be a huge drop it really is noticeable! Also that workout/yoga top is SUUUPER cute!
@kcarol: Daaaamn, that really is some great change right away! And yeah, ive been thinking I need to cut the dairy to help kill the last of the ab padding thats frustrating me >.< But greek yogurt and hard cheese are soo delicious and filling. Im trying to make them occassional treats/quick high calorie meals rather than staples.
Also, yay underpants!! *throws arms up in air excitedly*
Kakes and Corvidae, thank you SO much!
I know I know, it took me a loooong time to say no to dairy. But my skin is also clearing as well. I'd post THOSE photos but it's...my face...lol. Perhaps another day.
lol, I think my progress photo theme will continue to be sports bra and victoria secret underwear. yayyy panties! lol.
