My First Pair Of Jeans In Over 25 Years/ B4 and after


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, August 26, 2012



This is me before I started losing weight at 460 pounds and wheelchair bound.
The second picture is me in my new jeans! I haven't been able to wear jeans in 25 years. Woohoo! Thank you SparkPeople for helping me lose 224 pounds without weight loss surgery. You saved my life.

(yes I know I'm top heavy, please stop writing to me about bra fittings, as I will be doing this and it is hurting my feelings getting so many emails about it.)

    With all the success you've had, being top heavy would be a least concern! I am so happy for you! emoticon emoticon

    You look great. The top heavy comments are made by people who are jealous. I am top heavy and there isn't a thing that I can do about it short of surgery. Just love yourself and ignore the rest!!

  Wonderful! It brought tears to my eyes to see your tremendous success! I wonder if the people offering bra fittings are a part of an MLM business that sells bras. It would be a shame if they hurt you because they're looking for a $ale/new customer. Keep up the great work! emoticon

    I can just say one word: "Respect". What an awesome accomplishment!

You are so beautiful and have a FANTASTIC body. And to be honest!!
WHO CARES about the top??!?
That does not have to go into the jeans - right??
OCR!!! (of course right)

So go out there girl and show them a beautiful butt in a pair of tight beautiful jeans that looks awesome on you. Feel alive and win the world and your life back!
You have surely earned it, every second for the rest of this life.
You are beautiful! Fantastic and such a great inspiration!
Thank you for sharing with us, and when you are in the mood, give us another shot of the back side of you. I am sure that we will be a lot that will be envious, and wishing it was us.
What more can I say? RESPECT!!

    Can't believe someone (ones) would do this. We really do not have control of where we lose first or last. I think you are fantastic. You have lost a whole large person. That is just so outstanding. Hope you have a super day tomorrow. Best wishes.

    People often want to be helpful and don't realize that when you hear what you already know 472 times that it is NOT helpful. Try to shake it off. You look fabulous. : )

    You are beautiful and a true inspiration. I am wearing the exact same top you are in your 'now' picture. Great minds think alike! Regarding the people making comments that make you sad - "don't let the turkeys get you down". Anyone who makes comments like that are just thoughtless. That is just a really personal topic and they should just use their energies in a different way. Keep up the awesome work!!

    You are AMAZING!!!!! And, by the way, don't let ANYONE hurt your feelings. You look GREAT, and I know you must feel so good and good about yourself. You should. Your story is a wonderful testimony of self-control. Few people would have the "stick-to-it" attitude you have displayed. I am extremely impressed with your success on this journey. Personally, I believe you should be the "SparkPeople Poster Lady".
