    Starting point: how slim did my stomach look?

    When I first started to concentrate on fitness, I didn't take any measurements or weigh myself, I just started to change my diet and exercise habits. My current photos are in my profile, on my gallery.

    This was my starting point, about 18 months ago; they are only candid photos, taken at a party, so there is a bit of blur in some of them, but you can still see my side profile clearly. I was wearing skin tight clothing, so it's easy to judge my size.

    I just wanted to ask how thin/how low or high my body fat, based on the stomach area, looked before.

    If anyone can comment, that would be really useful to me, as then I can see how far I've come. Thanks.

    Oh not this again. It is impossible to tell, just like last time and the time before that. Take your measurements today so when you make this post again next month you have actual data rather than various poses in various amounts of clothing.

    Thanks for the reply, but sadly I can't go back in time to 18 months ago and take measurements...

    Correct but at least having them today will give you a future reference point. Guessing BF% even in bikini pics from several angles is a crapshoot and involves some guessing. Trying to compare different angles in different clothing is nothing but a guess and isn't going to be remotely accurate. Do you still have old jeans or dresses? Compare those sizes to what you wear now. That will provide a better idea than anyone waging a guess on here.

    Your posts are beyond annoying. To compare anything you need identical angles in identical lighting in identical clothing (skin exposed).
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    That is, seriously, the most anybody could tell you about those pictures.

    No we can't see your profile clearly, photos are dark/blurry and on top of wearing full clothing you are HOLDING YOUR ARM IN FRONT OF YOUR STOMACH lol.

    If you had kept riding your bike like I told you to, we wouldn't be in this predicament.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.
