Now and Then

Lately I have been feeling like the more weight I lose, the fatter I feel. I look at myself in the mirror and my face looks fatter and I am more critical then usual of my body. I look at clothes that I wore at my current weight a few years ago and I think that they are way too tight and inappropriate to possibly wear in public. I am starting to wonder if I am actually really losing weight, so I thought I would do some little comparisons...

BMI40 - Obese48 - Obese
Virtual Me

So I can tell from looking at all of that there that must be some changes. I can tell you my body is a lot more roly poly and stretch marked than the virtual models though! I think it'll make all the difference if I can just get another 10 kilos off. I remember way back when I was last under 100 kilos and it was when I started to have a bit more shape to my face and body and clothes started to fit better. So I just have to keep working at it. Here's to getting the next 10 kilos off and keeping them off!


  1. Keep at it mate, it will show soon for sure!!! Those virtual models suck, take your own photos, and take a new one every few months, then you will see the real differences.

  2. I agree with Chris. Take some pictures - even if you don't show them to anyone - you will be happy you did one day.

  3. I agree with the real photos showing progress much better than those virtual models do. If you like, I'd be happy to do Gaussian blurring for you to retain your anonymity, if you ever felt like writing a progress post.

    Aside from that, you have come a long long way from where you once were. You've done AWESOMEly!

  4. I'm not keen on pictures either. It's a huge step. I know one day I will just have to break down and do it. We are all a family here. We have all been there, many of us still are. Keep your head up!

  5. Your model looks terrific! I know how you feel, it's always so hard to see weight loss on yourself, but look at those numbers! You're kicking ASS!

  6. You have lost almost 50lbs! That is amazing!

    Haha... and I agree with you on the virtual models... I *wish* my overweight body was that perfectly proportioned and smooth... but no luck. It will still be worth it at the end...


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
