What 60 lbs looked like.

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

So I decided to take a look at some of the visual evidence of my 58 pound (so far) loss.
While I didn't really think I looked that different, I'm starting to grasp otherwise.
I started this journey in July of last year, now here I am 6 months later and nearly 60 pounds lighter. While to some people 10 pounds a month may not seem like much, for me it's freaking amazing! I have still not gotten my balance for an exercise plan (as in pain level down, energy & motivation level up) but I'm getting better all the time. While I was on a 1-10 pain scale steady at 8.5 & up DAILY I'm now around 5.5-6 & it's not all day every day. That in and of itself is a wonderful thing for me.

So I'm starting with a picture of me in April of 2011
I'm not sure of my weight here to be honest but I know its around the 400 mark.

Now to May of 2011

right around the same 400ish...this in fact is close to the time that I actually found a number to my size. And yeah, it freaked me out.

By October 2011 I was down 20 lbs and feeling like I wasn't doing it right because it didn't "hurt"

And I had a friend take these pictures today. 58 (c'mon 2 more!) pounds GONE. DONE! Tootle-loo
January 2011

yeah...couldn't help giggling when the pics were being taken. Funny thing...the shirt in January is the same I was wearing in May. hmmmm

I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing and I'm sure I'll find the balance to add more physical activity and help myself to feel even better.
Thank you everyone for the praise, loving support, sharing of your own journey(s) and for just plain being yourselves. You are all awesome!
