New Me Pictures

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

In the past two years, I have lost 36 pounds. It has been a hard and long process.

In the past six months, I have lost 20 pounds because I am doing a program called Simply for Life. It's eating clean and I can only have carbs once a day either for breakfast or lunch. It's very hard but I love the reward it has given to me.

People are noticing my weight loss lately. I know I have lost, because of the size of my clothes, but my brain can't come to grips with it. Maybe because I still want to lose 10 pounds because my goal was or is 135 lbs. But, don't get me wrong, I am happy with my results.

Saturday morning, I took a picture of me wearing my high school size 30 jeans! They fit. My goal was to one day fit back into them. Although, the style has since gone out.

Sunday, while in Québec City, I decided to splurge and buy myself a pair of Guess Jeans. I brought two sizes....30 and 29. The size 30 was big, but I found the 29 a little two tight. The girl serving me told me the 30 was way too big and that I should go down two sizes. I thought this was too much. She said they get bigger as the day goes on. Soooo, I got a size 29!!! I can't believe that because I never wore that size in high school, being 130-135 lbs...but you have to remember, 15 years ago, there was not stretch in jeans!

This is me with my high school pants and an oversize t-shirt.

This is me with my new skinny jeans :)
