25 lbs lost! (pictures)

Sunday, September 23, 2012

I have hit my 25 lbs lost mark! Well, actually, I am at 24.6 pounds lost, but I figure it's as close to exactly 25 pounds lost as I will get before I weigh in again. Anyway, I just had to take some comparison pictures because the red blouse I wore for our Christmas pictures actually swallows me now!! I can't believe it! In fact, when I wore it 2 weeks ago I thought I looked downright sloppy in it, but my DH said that I still looked fine and that the belt helped it not look so big.
So here are my progress pics:

Christmas 2011 weighing around 199. I may have actually weighed a pound or so more or less I didn't weigh myself at this time, because I didn't want to know. I weighed after the new year on the 4th, in fact, and that's when I said I had to change!

A close-up of the same picture. HORRIBLE!!

Today, September 23, 2012.

A close-up of the same pic. Look at the change in my face alone! Absolutely AMAZING what 25lbs can do for a person! LOL

And I had to include one more of me standing up:

Oh, by the way, that purple shirt is a shirt I bought back in 2009 when I first started Sparking and lost only 12lbs. I was hoping to reward myself with it then, but I got so discouraged when I couldn't lose anymore after 4 months of a plateau. I gave up and gained every bit of the weight back. So, the tags were still on the shirt when I decided to pull it out of the back of the closet and try it on. I couldn't believe fit!!

    Great going on your weight loss; it's a real testament to some consistent hard work and a great decision about your health. I have more than one thing in my closet with the tags on; hope to emulate you some day soon and be surprised by how well they fit.

Spark on!
