Omgosh my bum!!! (pics)

Since my husband was having me to snap some pictures of him (since he has lost 20lbs himself) I figured while he had the point-n-shoot out to have him snap a few of me. OH. MY. WOW!!! This is crazy. It's taking a lot of courage for me to even post these. My bum in that before picture is quite embarrassing... especially for how much I have always worked out. This is 22lbs difference.

While I'm at it I'll put up one of his back too... definitely a difference! He went from 186lbs to 166lbs.

Before anyone else says so I'll go on record saying yes... I know I'm looking a bit on the scrawny side and yes I know I need to stop losing...

Steph that is awesome!! I carry weight in my bottom half too and its soooo hard to lean out the ottom while not getting to thin on the top but you look really balanced!! I think you have done an awesome job! Don't listen to negative comments, do what makes you happy!

I think it's cool that he is into fitness and such too! I always see it one sided!
stephanielynn76 wrote 87 months ago:
Thanks Jenny!!! That makes me feel better. I hear it every. single. day..... "You are TOO THIN Stephanie..." I'm sick of it honestly. I think I look more "fit" than "thin" personally...
stephanielynn76 wrote 87 months ago:
@jennw10 ... yes we've both always been gym rats... we MET at the gym! LOL It's been our lifestyles since before we even became a couple. It does really help to have that in common too because we understand each other's need to work out and eat properly :)

You definitely look "fit" but you have a pretty small frame to begin with so of course you're going look "thin" to people that don't have a clue, ya know? Ignore the negativity!

Keep up the awesome work!

Girl u are awesome! Holy crap I look at the before pic and I see that my thigh and hips look like that too, then I look at the after and I'm like damn! I gotta look like that!! Great job!
ashahl wrote 87 months ago:
I think you look great! Not too thin at all but fit and toned. Any lower though and I might have to change my my opinion :P
But I can tell you know what's good for your health and body, so I doubt there will ever be a time where I'll ever think you look anything less than fabulous!

My kids just appeared behind my shoulder while I was looking at this posting and my 4y/o says... "Mommy you look fat right there" (pointing to the before picture of course). Then my son chimes in "WOW mommy... you WERE fat... now you're skinny... you should have been on the Biggest Loser..." LOL... leave it to kids to be honest huh...

YOu look amazing girl!!! and you're eating properly, you're fueling your body, so don't listen to those comments, just make sure you don't lose more weight, increase the cals a little and that's all!!
stephanielynn76 wrote 87 months ago:
Thanks so much yall for all the sweet comments and the validation of my current size! I get so tired of people telling me I'm too thin. I think it's a shock for them because they know me and just aren't used to it yet. I have not let anyone derail me from my goals and I'm glad I've stuck with it! Yall are AWESOME!!! Keep at it. I hope to see you all reach your goals and post your own progress pictures!!!

Wow! Huge difference! I cannot wait until I lose some of my butt! LOL. Kayne looks great too! It is a huge help having a spouse that supports you. Mark is into working out more than I am, so it is a BIG help!
GoLeanWendy wrote 87 months ago:
The thing that you pics (which are fantastic btw) illustrate so well is that some people just insist they have a larger frame when that is not the case. I look at your 1st pic and see somehow who does not look like they have a small frame but certainly does not look fat either. Once you start losing and toning EVERYTHING changes and that is so obviously what happened for you. Did you feel you had a "small frame" at your old weight too?
callipygianchronicle wrote 87 months ago:
I do not think you look scrawny at all. You look thin, fit, and muscular. You look like an athlete: a person who trains hard and eats well. Have you had your body fat measured since you burned the fat and unveiled all that toned muscle?
stephanielynn76 wrote 87 months ago:
@callipygianchronicle... well I've used both the machine you hold with your hands and I had the calipers test done several weeks ago. I know both are grossly inaccurate but even with that being the case I've seen a noticeable downward trend in results. I was as high as 20% several weeks ago and as low as 14.5% (given that margin of error) here recently. I'm planning on having a trainer at the gym test it next week!

CheerCoachAmy wrote 87 months ago:
I'm also curious what you are doing to get those results. I am built in a similar way to what you were before and I think you look fantastic! Don't let anyone criticize you for your appearance - it's not cool when people are overweight and it drives me crazy that people think it's acceptable to say something if they think someone's "too small". You go girl! :o)

squeaktones wrote 87 months ago:
be the best you that you can be. it's between you and your doctor about your size. if you weren't at a healthy weight i am sure your doctor would let you know. your tush didn't look bad in the before shot. the granny panties don't flatter anyone. don't be so hard on yourself then or now. your after shot is quite a shock. i would have thought it was more than 20 pounds. wow.
sweetsarahj wrote 87 months ago:
WOW amazing transformation! You look fantastic, not skinny, you look toned and muscular! Seeing your pics is a great inspiration for me :) I'm adding you as a friend now :)

Just like everyone else here, I would love to know more about your regimin, such as, how many times per week you exercise, and how long it took you to get these results. You go girl!

juliemouse83 wrote 87 months ago:
Ok, that does it. I am going to HAVE to suck it up and get my hubs to take a picture of me front and back NOW, so I can have something to compare it to. I am usually behind the camera and squirm in front of it, but this has totally inspired me! Absolute WAY TO GO!

Too scrawny? No, huh-uh, you look amazing, and your muscle tone is incredible. :) Keep up the great work!

You know what? You do look thin, but not in an unhealthy way. You look very fit. Don't worry if people tell you that you're too thin. You don't look sickly, you look great! Great work!

MissAnjy wrote 87 months ago:
Maybe it's just me but I would never look at someone with your body and say "wow she's thin". Thin doesn't even apply to the state your body is in. YOU ARE FIT! Nobody looks at Jillian Michaels and says 'wow she's so skinny' they think 'wow she's ripped/fit' and that's exactly what I think when I look at your body! I think you look great!!!!

You look great! I clicked over to your blog because we are pretty similar. I am also 5'6.5", 146 lbs (down from 162), almost 32 years old and I have a 3.5 year old. I swear your before picture is exactly how I look right now, pear shape and all! I'm a runner, but I recently started weight training and your after picture is my inspiration as to what is possible.
