    Dude, you mis-read the Op. I believe I explained my intent in several additional posts.

    So the answer is no.
    In my personal experience it took about 2 years to start seeing fitness. However, after 3 years I have never looked like someone who have never had weight problems.

    Not sure what your idea of normal is. They were able to reach or get close to "their" optimal healthy weight. I understand you have a picture of yourself in your minds eye of what you ideally would like to look like, all you can do is eat healthy, train correctly and the have faith that your body will adapt to these conditions.

    Here are some pictures of me. I may look like the picture of ideal female beauty to some people, but I may look overweight to others. Have I adapted adequately? Have I met the criteria to dispense advise? Do I work out hard enough? Does anybody aspire to be like me or to love a woman like me? Maybe some do, maybe some don't.

Some like Paleobird have posted amazing pictures and even had their success story printed, others like Grizz and the more recent mega poster JamesS have never (to my knowledge) posted pictures of themselves. I challenge all frequent forum contributors to post a photo and show us that you practice what you preach.

    Showing you practice what you preach is showing you have improved from when you started, it's not important to me how you compare to others.

    You look great! Wonderful that you are getting out there and experiencing life. Why worry about how you compare to others, what's most important is the improvements you have made - you are on a journey to be the best you can be. Congratulations!

    All I really did was get back to where I was before I did so much hiking. The hiking actually ruined me. Hiking from Mexico to Canada. I do hope that I've found a better way to survive such an ordeal, you know, for the next time I do it. And it would be a nice bonus if I could look good on Hike Naked Day.
