Before and After Weight Loss Pictures Update

It’s time to post a before and after weight loss picture.  I’m down to 146.4 pounds.  I want to be at 145, so I am on track for that.  I’m still not happy with the way I look. I’m 5’9″, which puts my lowest weight for my height at 145.  I’m told that I shouldn’t go below that.  Yet, I’m not happy with my body.

I need to tone and tighten, that’s what everyone tells me.  I’m working on that.  I do exercises that target my problem areas.  I have loose belly fat that wants to be stubborn.  It doesn’t want to tighten up.  My waist is bigger than I want it to be, too.  Of course, my mother says I will never have a waist.  That I never did growing up, and it is hopeless to think I will now.  She said she always had a hard time fitting me for clothes because of that.  Even when I was a skinny minny little girl.

My measurements now are:

Chest: 37 inches

Waist:  32 inches

Hips: 39 inches

I was hoping that at 145 pounds, my measurements would be better.  I would love to be in a size medium clothes by the time I go on my shopping trip with my mom.  I am so looking forward to that, because I need clothes that fit.

I did get two new bras from EdenFantasys.  They are push-up bras.  The girls need a little help after having two kids.  I love them.  It’s great to wear a bra that fits the way it should.  It makes me feel better about myself.  Now I just need to feel good about how I look in my clothes.

I’m going to keep working on reducing the inches, but not the weight.  I’d like to go down one more size, but that will only happen if I can get all of this loose fat tighten up.  It’s my own fault, I know.  I should never have allowed myself to get up to 226 pounds.  I can’t do anything about that now.  I did, and now I am down to the weight I should be.  I just have to work hard to repair the damage I did to my body.
