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.)

I am SO thankful that I found it too. You've done such a great job on your journey and you are truly an inspiration to everyone. A living testament that it can be done. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

P.S. And...you're a gorgeous lady, inside and out.

    Hey, now everyone can see you have a top and a bottom (that looks cute in jeans, by the way). You are doing super fantastic and are a big inspiration to so many of us out here in Spark Land. Thanks so much for posting and sharing. Keep it up! And good luck on the bra fitting. I could use one of those. :)

    I can't believe others are sending you information about bra fittings. That is really none of their business! Please don't let their words get to you. What an inspiration you are! Congrats on your success. I know it wasn't easy and you inspire me everyday here!

BTW, you look amazing! Beautiful in both photos. What a smile you have:)

    Wearing jeans is also my goal. Even when I was slim jeans were not always easy to fit into because I am top heavy and short through the buns so mens jeans often were the only ones that fit right. It is awesome that you are wearing a pair and you should just enjoy them. emoticon emoticon emoticon
