Today was the Biggest Loser awards ceremony in Worcester. They had the top 5 losers come up on stage, and they flashed our before & after pictures up on the screen with our total pounds lost and the percentage of our body weight. In 12 weeks I lost 35 lbs or 14.94%. Here you go, the first progress photos I’ve dared to post publicly!

I still feel like my basic body shape is a rectangle – I don’t have much indentation at my waist. But my face is noticeably slimmer. In this photo (taken this morning before the ceremony) you can see a little bit more shape from the side view:
Obviously there’s still a long way to go (45 lbs at minimum, before my BMI is approaching the normal range). But it’s good to see the changes becoming a bit more obvious. And people are starting to notice. Yesterday, I walked into a work meeting and a colleague who hasn’t seen me in several months said, “Woah! What happened to half of you?!” It made my day, I was grinning from ear to ear.
