You are off to a great start!! Like I posed in a previous thread, most people don't start to see the difference in themselves until about 50 pounds. 50 seems to be the magic number. I can see a difference.

Hey Diva (thats what I think, when I see your pics), you have really shrunk! Don't worry about your lack of booty. With the right pair of jeans, you can fix that. lol
You really look great though & I can't wait to see you in somebody's magazine doing those diva top model poses!

LIFE AFTER PHEN CHALLENGE
I would be more than happy to share some of my back side with you lovely ladies, not much tho lol hubby like it and don't want me to lose much of it. I happen to disagree with him, I want some of it gone and a little more shape to it. Bronzy, you look fantastic girly. Your lose is evenly spread where as mine, every time I lose a few pounds they come RIGHT OFF MY DANG BOOBIES. I can't lose much cuz if I do they will be nonexistant lol. Nonetheless you look great and keep up with what you are doing cuz GIRL IT'S WORKING!!!!!!!
You look good girl. I can tell in the mid section. Keep it up!
Yep....sounds like we are body twins!!! I carry ALL of my weight on top. I have NO fat in my calvs and thighs. They are allll muscle. I'm not complaning about that, but all the weight is on my belly, back and sides. When I took the before and after photos I stood in my most comfortable stance to get my realist look....but when I go out in public I try to stand up straight and hold all the fat in tight lol...to try to look slimmer (like in my siggy pics). So I can't wait until the day when I can just walk out the house and not worry about how I look walking or standing.
Also I found it interesting that you said that you lost sooo much before anyone notices...I totally expect this for me. And I'm fine with it, cause at least I'm losing. I am 5'9" and my goal weight is 200 also. So we are JUST alike in our body type and goals...I don't know what it is about our body type....ehhh oh well. We are getting ourselves right and tight for our life right now....so we are in this together girl!!!!! Thanks for the encouragment!
wow girl ur looking great!.. u can def tell a difference

i can definitely tell...looks like inches are off in your middle..way to go!
Bronzy....you are looking soooo good! There is a difference, YOU just can't see it. I talked to my dr about this last month. He told me weight first, mind later. Lose the weight now and fix your distorted body image later! I am shaped exactly like you. If I put on an outfit like the one you are wearing, I swear noone would be able to tell the difference (well....your a little darker!) I have belly and back fat and the ever so typical V shaped lower half. Makes my legs look like pencils! I lost about 60 lbs before anyone noticed and it made me so sad. My pants were falling off yet no one noticed! How does that happen? I am 5'9" so height does play a big part in it. I know that at 200 lbs I will look awesome while others would not. Soooo....keep up the good work! You are an amazing woman with soo much inspiration and wisdom. I always look forward to reading your posts for a little extra pick me up!

That is a big difference! I'm LMAO @ your comment about your poor butt. My booty was once big and round but it is looking mighty sad now. My husband told me that I have to stop low carbing because it's taking my booty away. I'm not listening. I figure once the butt is gone, the rest will follow. It's the price I have to pay!
You're doing great! Thanks for posting your pics - you inspire me.
:heartpump:I feel the love ladies!!!! Thankssssss:heartpump:
Bronzy, I can TOTALLY SEE a difference!!! You look great!!! I bet if you also kept track of the inches that you're losing that might help with motivation, too. And height does play a big part in how quickly you see a difference as the numbers go down!! I'm the same way... I don't think I got any real compliments until I'd dropped 60 pounds. Anyway, the change is definitely there, girl!!! Just keep up the good work.
Aww bronzy you look great and i can def see a difference And for all the ladies who need some junk in their trunk: please take some of mines!!! i have enough for 3 people!!
The proof is in the pics!!! <3
Starting over again!!!!
Are you kidding? Need your glasses checked? You can tell the difference!! No slight about it! wooohooo! Bella Bronzy!

Ladies thank you so much for the eye opener. I wish I could comment on what each one of you said, but I need to go eat my subway sandwich right now lol (seriously...it is calling my name). Thanks for pointing out the details. I try not to have the problem of "not being able to see the change," which is why I took pics. But I think that mentality just comes with weight loss. So thank you all for the support. It is soooo appreciated.
Oh...and I'm happy to know I'm not he only one with the "no a*s" problem. But Blitz just wrote that the butt will become more prominate as the belly goes down....and in my case when my back goes down also....cause I carry A LOT of my weight on my back. Thanks again ladies...this is why I love it here!
There is a HUGE difference! Great job, and keep staying strong with it!

I can definitely see much more than just a slight change. There is a big difference in the before and after. You have done an awesome job and you're such a motivating and inspiring person. Keep up the good work.
Oh, I bought a new swimsuit today. I just have to get up the nerve to take pics and post them.
