I'm in the process of losing the last 20 pounds. I'm just wondering if you could share any photos you might have which show before-and-afters of your last 20ish pounds. I'd like to see what the difference might look like. Also, if you are willing to share any of your personal stats (height, weight, clothing size, gender, etc.) and the method in which you did it (cardio, diet only, weights, etc.) that would be wonderful.

Thanks, Jamie

Jamie--stats, 5'11" SW 216, CW 202, male. starting waist 43, current waist 38. My goal was to lose 20 pounds. Started in February and am down 14 total. Changed food intake slightly--less processed foods, fast food is gone, and very little white's(pasta, bread, etc.)--I can tell you the last pounds will take time and it is the way to do it--lifestyle and habitt changes ought to occur over months and even years in order to be able to maintain your weight. Hope this helps--

1zacmat~Thanks for the info. You started in February? That doesn't seem too long, long enough I guess. I've been battling this 20 pounds for what seems like forever. To be honest though, I'm only now putting in the effort I think is required. It's back to running for me. :)

andreamelo~I'm hoping the last 20 pounds make a big difference! Maybe even the biggest difference out of any 20 pounds that I've lost.

sun_ny~Thanks for the encouragement!

edalton2570~Congratulations on your success! Pictures?

biddleboom~Yup!

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY PICTURES (thoughts)??!!! Just looking for a little motivation. :)

Hi! We have the same start weight :)

I've lost 20 lbs over the past year, yup, I was in the 150s last May and now I'm in the 130s. happy I'd like to lose another 5-10 lbs of fat but I'm trying to not care if that takes me another year wink

For the past year, I've been doing a 2-4 days per week of cardio and 3-4 days per week of lifting, and a couple days walking or hiking when the weather cooperates. I've been eating around 1700-2200 calories, averaging around 1900, for most of the past year.

Sorry I don't have any pics I feel comfortable sharing on here from my last 20 lbs.... I can tell you that I felt amazing in the 150s and I feel even more amazing in the 130s. Good luck. flowerforyou

NovemberJune~thanks for sharing. It's great to hear how people are losing the last 20 pounds and their attitude towards it. No worries about the picture.

Sorry I can't share what you want but I have to say. Wow you look great! Super job. 90 lbs down is incredible. I still have almost 40 to go & have never taken pics so I can't share those. I started in Feb this time through & am down to my half way point ( 38.5 down)

You can't really compare your last 20 pounds to someone elses. Body composition is going to be very different based on many factors.

Love this thread.. I'll post mine cause I really always aimed to just lose 20lbs. I've lost 17 in 5 months but the difference is obvious. Can't believe I used to be this big.. I am 5'6", 164lbs now. I focus mostly on getting in key macros (protein) as I lift heavy. Believe it or not, I now eat atleast 2000 cals a day.. strength training? Eat more to weigh less (and have less fat on your body).

I started with 30DS every day except a few here and there for two months, moved on to kettlebells/fitness classes at the Y. March, I started Stronglifts 5x5, now I still do Stronglifts 5x5 but have started Couch to 5K just so I can say I've accomplished something else I never thought I would (and great stress relief). I play soccer on the weekends at the YMCA and if my schedule allows during the week, I still do fitness classes at the Y. Hope that helps

Dixiewhiskey~you've done great! Thanks for sharing. I think this is motivating. Seeing people lose that last 20 pounds or their only 20ish pounds shows me that it IS possible. I'm hoping that the last 20 pounds will make a great difference. :)

I'm 5' 8", SW 277 pounds, CW 167, start clothing size was busting out of a 24 / 3X and current is a size 8 / 10, obviously I'm female laugh I did an old fashioned healthy weight loss. Healthy diet, cardio and lift heavy. I lost my weight in exactly one year all natural. I'm struggling with the last 15 pounds. Won't budge.

Profile pictures will show you before and afters

My profile picture it me now at 155 lbs. I have 20 lbs left to go to reach my goal of 135. I am 5'6.5" I am now fitting into a size 8 pants and usually a large shirts still but some mediums. I hope this helps. I am assuming that after the last 20 lbs I will end up in a size 6 pants and a medium shirt but idk perhaps a size 4... Good luck!

Thank you! I am glad you made this thread cause there is a lot of focus on losing 100's of lbs but not many on what amazing difference can be made just losing 15 or 20lbs! I know you will do great, keep on keeping on my dear!

I started moving more and counting calories. I like calorie counting because I can still eat the things I want to eat. Honestly, the exercising part of it I have been lax on so I think that's why my weight isn't going down. This week will be different though, back to sweating it off. :)

Hello. I'm new to these forums and I guess I should document my weight loss.
I'm not sure how I will look after I lose my last 20 pounds but I'm sure I'll look great.
My legs look slimmer and Im starting to look bony on top (if that makes any sense )
Idk how to post pics but if anyone is interested you can follow me on instagram: theveeohs
Sorry to intrude.
