It's been so long since I wanted my picture taken!

I had to search hard for a recent "before" pic of myself. It just happened to be one where I was getting ready for a local charity walk for the local food bank. The same pic is from the day I saw myself on the local news. It was the day I realized I looked 5 months pregnant. It was the day I realized I had to do something about it! That is when, or shortly after I got back on SP and got serious. When I signed up in January of this year, I wasn't sure how to use the site. I guess I wasn't really ready yet. 2 1/2 months ago is when it dawned on me and the realization was worth a thousand prayers!
It's sad how many photo ops I missed out on. A lot of pics of my kids, husband and grandson, but none of me. I never wanted anyone to take a picture of me showing my fat face! And truth is I was a little scared to post a before pic of myself. I look tired and miserable.
2 days ago was the 1st photo I've let my husband take of me in a long time. I see the difference. I look more vibrant and happy! Which I am! I am happy to report I am over half way to my goal. And, I am less than 1 pt away from being considered in a healthy range according to my BMI! Soon I will no longer be overweight! I thank God for my strength and for the support of people on this site! Much love!
