I am almost half my size!

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Thought I would share with you some photos of my journey. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of my me at my highest weight of 450 pounds. I hated having my picture taken and the one photo that I had I think I might of thrown it out because I couldn't stand looking at myself. So below is a picture of my at approximately 380 pounds.

I am blessed to have found SP in December 2009 and later the BL White Tigers Team. With everyones encouragement, motivation, and support my journey has been one of introspection and transformation from the inside out. I don't think I could have come this far if I had not changed how I feel about myself no matter what my size.

My weight is now down to 248 pounds and I look almost half my size!

The best part is that I look forward to my workouts and I am able to do so much more. I am the lowest weight I have been since 1988. I still have a ways to go to reach my goal, but I have come to love myself and realize that it is not about the destination, but the journey along the way to a healthier lifestyle.

    Wow! What a super transformation! I love to see the pictures and I'm glad I read your previous post last night. I have thought of your story all day today and then to see these pictures tonight -- well, if this were a boxing match someone would announce this as the old 1-2. Last night, your words took my breath away; tonight, your pictures did. What an awesome job. I am so proud to be a White Tiger with you!
