Here they are the Before and After Pictures!!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, June 27, 2010

Hello everyone out there in Sparkland emoticon

I must admit that the mean girl in my head doesn't think there is much of a difference between the before and after pictures. I know there is, I FEEL IT!! but looking at the pics I still think I look fat. I know it's just that Mean Girl in my Head!!! So.... here they are......

BEFORE






AFTER







Here are a few of the numbers when I started I weighed 350 Pounds, now I am at 230. I had lost 20 pounds before Sparks.
I was a size 28-30 I am now a size 18............Today I fit into a size 16 but it was just a tad bit too tight but I got those darn pants on!!! emoticon



"Every time you 'use' food, you leave yourself. You walk out the door and leave yourself starving. At least you have an avenue into your inner world. Your eating can become a sign that you need something-even though you don't know what it is or how to get it. Rather than viewing it as a seizure that overtakes you and propels you toward food, you can use it as a barometer between you and your non-physical hunger." Geneen Roth

Treasure your Accomplishments!!!

    I love Geneen Roth - her regular article in Good Housekeeping has been one of the first truly helpful series I've seen in a magazine. The rest of it is "eat well and be skinny" but it doesn't address the relationship most overweight people have with food as love, comfort, etc. I know not everyone who is overweight has an unhealthy relationship with food, but I believe most do.

Geneen has really helped me with some exercises on how to address my approach to food - I'm glad to see your amazing progress and her quote!

    Hey! Tell the mean girl in your head that you'll drop the weight you've lost on her if she doesn't shut up. I'm in the same place that you are--seeing changes in my mirror that make me smile, but being disappointed that the camera doesn't reflect the "me" I see in my head--the goal me, the me I used to be, before life and the things I've survived got in the way. My advice? Concentrate on how much better you feel--in and out of your clothes; how good a job you've done, getting to where you are (and you HAVE done a good job!); and how much easier the rest of it's going to be, now that you've kicked the mean girl in the butt and taught the real you what it takes to be healthy and happier. Keep up the good work--and picture yourself burning a photo of the mean girl out of your life.

Tell you what: in six months, I'll meet you here, and we'll burn the mean girls together! emoticon

    Fantastic! You can totally tell...but I understand the mean girl issue. I think many of us think that way. I can remember back in high school, being a size 8/10 and thinking I was fat. What I wouldn't give to be that size again now! Great work! emoticon

    Are you kidding? You look amazing! I had a similar attitude years ago. When I was in my late teens I was about 30/32 then got down to a 14/16 in my early twenties and was still so insecure and still seen myself as fat. Now that I'm back up to 26/28 I look back and would kill to have that body back and could kick myself for not appreciating what I had enough to keep it. You have done what a lot of us are still striving for, be proud of that. Can't wait to see how far you have gone a year from now. Keep up the great work!
