The first two are from two years ago when I was studying abroad in England...I was at my HW then at around 150-155. Yuck.
The second two are more recently taken, one from last fall and one from two weekends ago, at around 125-135. The one from last fall was my LW.

My biggest tip to anyone looking for quick (literally overnight!) results is to cut down on your carbs. Not to say that I'm all about carb-free diets, because I loves me my oatmeal in the morning and you can't take that away from me :)...but if you gradually eat less and less carbs as the day goes on, and drink plenty of water, you'll wake up the next day (I promise!) with a less puffy face.
For example, say you have oatmeal in the morning, maybe with some fruit for a mid-morning snack. Carbs, but not bad processed carbs like sugar and starch. Lunch, same thing: some carbs=ok. But when you get to dinner and after-dinner, anything that goes in your mouth is going to show up on your face the next morning. If you've already eaten, say, pasta for dinner, drink lots o' water, avoid salt and sugar the rest of the night, and if you like tea, drink green tea to help flush things out. You probably won't see great results the next morning, but it's better than having an even puffier face the next day!

Try it! Let me know how it works for you. Besides, it's a healthy practice to get into anyway!

^ Completely agree with carbs showing up straight away. I find that my face and stomach always bloat if I eat them, but not with proteins or dairy. Weird.

@Willowthin Wow you are pretty. Your cheeks were a lot fuller in the before pics. I especially like the last pic, the make up is really nice :).

So, this is mine, from awhile back (the after is September of 2011 I think). I've gained since then, and it's a big motivator for me :]

Really nice collection. I especially love the change Jennifer Hudson went through...she looks so amazing now.
And the Jared Leto pictures made me laugh, actually. I'm a huge fan of him and was shocked by the weight gain for his movie. But I admire him for his discipline when he lost 62 lbs in a matter of a just a few weeks after he had finished shooting Chapter 27.

I still have a really long way to go. Like over 40 pounds! But this is my progress so far. In the first pic I was around 185. Second 175. Third 165. Fourth is current at 157. I want to be 115.:luv: My chubby mommy body wont go below that! :mad:
Please be kind. I know I am still alot heavier than anyone here and its embarrassing!:oops:

You are sooooo pretty:luv:
