50+ pounds gone! Now with pictures!

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

50+ pounds gone this time around, a total of 74 from when I started this journey. Wow, that feels so weird to say outloud when I realize that I've done that. I really wanted to put off this post until I could give up some pictures with it, but I realized that I kept waiting and it wasn't happening. If I didn't do this soon, it would be awhole another post! :)

Now I am editing them in. How about that!

There are only a few pictures of me at my heaviest. Most of them are with my mom, but mostly the more really embarassing ones I've got on mine. I'll add in more once I can find more to show the difference.

Face shot. No make up. First thing in the morning. This was for a DITL project that never got published because of this photo. I'd say that I am probably 250 here.

199 here. Make up, but taken after hours of drinking at 2am.

My nose ring is since history.

I am workin' on body shots. I don't have so much recent ones, but we'll see if I can't work on that today.

50+ pounds lost? Things are different now for sure.

How different is something that I need to remind myself of some days. Before I was worried about my pants being too tight. Now I worry about them being too lose. The pair of 12's that I couldn't get on around a month or two ago? I am living in them now. They button. There is no extra over the waist band. I am living in them not only because they are the only pair I own that fit well. But I am afraid to alternate with my one size up jeans, less they are the ones that start to fit well.

My other 12's, which wouldn't even go up my LEG when I bought them, now zipper up! And yes, we are talking love handle city there. But they are still UP. And that means another 10ish pounds, and the extra flab around the waist band should be gone.

The 22's, 18's, 16's and 14's are all sitting in a nice little box, waiting to be sold on my dresser.

The ring that I used to wear on my thumb since it is my smallest finger, now fits on my pointer, which is the largest.

These are small thing when it comes to my weight loss, but these are the ones that I see every day, or stick out when I am having a bad day. So. Here is to losing at least another 30, and adding more things to the list that I couldn't do before. :)

    Great job lady!! You know you're my hero right now!

    And that is so funny that you use your fingers and rings because I do the very same thing. When I was around my goal weight, I could fit a ring finger around my middle finger - not quite my index. Too funny!

    But keep up the great job - you're awesome!!
