Can You See A Difference?

Here are the photos that I promised. I didn't get any full body pictures for the simple reason that I am not ready to post them all over the internet. Maybe when I hit a 50 pound loss, I will be ready to show my ass-ets. :)

After

Oh my god. You're gorgeous at any weight. What are you? Twenty years old? You look amazing in both photos, but congratulations on the weight loss.

Rachel said...

Wow!! Thanks Churlita.

I will be 34 next month. It just the extra padding that fills in the wrinkles. Another 50 pounds I will look like I have aged 10 years.

You are gorgeous too. Don't even try to pretend you aren't.

Poppy said...

I know you look thinner over all, since I see you every day, but you can tell in your face - the double chin is gone, and your cheeks don't look as full. You do look good :) Keep it up!

you are so beautiful at any weight - and not bad to look at either
;)
You've got a lot to be proud of there and Churlita is right - you look very young!!

Sizzle said...

definitely!

you have such pretty eyes. :)

Jaybird said...

Hubba hubba!

Lookin' good!

Skyzi said...

You should post pics more often! You look beautiful!! Your chin is way different now, I hope I look that good at 34.

Not so little Woman said...

Totally see it!! Congrats!! You look great!

Ambulance Driver said...

You definitely look thinner in the after photo, and congratulations on that.

But your eyes and your smile look the same in both, and they're what makes you pretty.

Keep up the weight loss, though. If you feel prettier, it'll show in your smile.

I think 25 pounds is great! It is not easy, but you are doing it. By the way, you are really beautiful!

WOW Rachel! You're gorgeous no matter what! I must say you look so great in glasses!!

David in DC said...

Good grief, dieting makes your hair turn red?

But, more seriously, congratulations on the will power and resolve it took to get to this point.

You look great.

And you've done both yourself and Devon a big favor with the health benefits that come with the weight loss.

Jenna said...

congrats honey on the weight loss, I agree with the posse though you're pretty any way, but if this makes you feel great than hey keep at it. Lol!

M said...

absolutely there's a difference. You look amazing (though you looked amazing before too - but the w.loss has brought out your facial features more).

Hilly said...

Holy Crap, you look amazing!

Mrs. Big Hairy Woman said...

Holy Smokes.. what a hottie.. before and after.. you are looking so gorgeous... keep it up...

Rachel said...

Poppy ~ The double chin receding was the first thing that I really noticed. I didn't realize how much my face had actually thinned out until I compared the photos. Thanks!!

lady ~ Awwww....you are so sweet and you look fabulous at 40 too.

Sizzle ~ Thank you. I have always liked my eyes too.

Jaybird ~ Hubba Hubba??? hahahahahaha... I pictured you saying that in my head and it made me laugh.

skyzi ~ I will probably post photos as I reach additional weight loss goals.

not so little woman ~ Thanks.

ambulance driver ~ awwww shucks. That was so sweet it almost brought tears to my lil' eyes. Thank you!!!

Freckle ~ The strange thing is that it hasn't really been that hard. I modified the way that I eat so that I can still enjoy the things that I love. If I really want a cookie, I have it, count the points and move on. The hardest part has been starting the exercising. Still trying to get into the rhythm of that.

Reformat~ Thanks! I wear glasses the majority of the time, especially when I am going to be someplace smoky because i wreaks havoc on my eyes with contacts in. And since I work on a PC all day it helps. Maybe when I lost another 25 pounds I will treat myself to new frames.

David ~ LOL... who woulda thunk it? Nope, that is just a friend in the pic with me.

Jenna ~ Thanks. Everyone is being so nice today. (sniff sniff)I feel great, other than my ankles hurting all of the time. Not sure what that's about.

M ~ I seriously didn't notice it until I compared the pix. Thank you for the lovely compliment.

Hilly ~ Thanks!!!

Mrs. Big ~ Your comment has made my morning. Thank you so much!!!

This is awesome. I'm impressed and very happy your hard work is paying such great rewards. I love that you shared.

Indiana said...

Of course you can see the difference :-) Congrats on reaching your first goal, and good luck with your next.

Lydia said...

You look fantastic, Rachel. Damn girl, you've got great bone structure. And huge congrats on reaching the first weight loss target.

Tara said...

You look so cute in both photos, Rachel! I second Churlita's comment and congratulate you on your success! You look fantastic!
