ME (before, then & now) a reeeeeeeeally long overdue update :op

Friday, September 23, 2011

I can't believe it's been 7 LOOOOOOOOOOONG months since I last posted a blog entry.

Well to be honest - I don't think I've lost much weight since my last blog entry. (approximately 25lbs in a little over 7 months - so that's about 3 1/2 lbs a months)

Don't get me wrong, I'm not disappointed in my loss, because any loss is a win in my book emoticon

Anyway - I'm excited to announce I'm no longer camera shy & I'm absolutely IN LOVE with wearing high heels. (something I've NEVER been able to ever do) & now that I'm down nearly 160 lbs I'm wearing them almost everyday.

In fact I'm wearing a super sexy pair of 4 1/2 inch heels right now as we speak. (not the ones in the picture above. that's a picture my daughter took as we were out shoe shopping. She said she just HAD to take it because it was soooooo OBVIOUS how much I loved with those shoes) *lol*

okay - so now is the moment of truth.....

THE BEFORE (around 350 lbs)

THE THEN (around 230 lbs)

& here are a few pictures of me NOW!!! (around 207 lbs)

(don't try this at home kids... this was an act reserved exclusively for my trip to Cancun) emoticon

...and look how he was a gentleman. Before he had you jugalug it...he made sure he had a cloth to wipe up any excess. Now THATs CLASS! Looks like you had a good time in 'ol Cancun.
Seriously though...
Your shots are INCREDIBLE!
I know how you feel...and everytime I read a blog and see MY WEIGHT I started or where I am now I feel like...THAT's ME TOO only through someone else. I think we all go through many of the same things. OFTEN in silence.
THANK YOU for opening up. Being brave enough to share with us.
