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.)

    you are the CUTEST little thing! You're like a Kewpie doll! (in a good, not creepy way)

Seriously, you must be SO DARNED PROUD of yourself. I don't even know you and I feel kind of all "first day of school, how quickly they grow up" about you in those pictures!

Congrats.

    I think you have done an amazing job. Being top heavy is out of your control unless you have a reduction. But why go under the knife when you don't have to. You still look great.

    You look fantastic. Congrats on the Jeans, you look great in them. I genuinely never thought of you being top heavy. I suppose I see mainly how your face has changed - from unhappiness to beaming! That is what is important. You have totally transformed your life and been an inspiration to so many.
