Today I experienced the last night of a Tradition... my friends and I went to see Breaking Dawn at midnight (yes, stupid, but oh well). We took the normal cutesy pictures, one of which I put on Facebook. Someone commented on how great I looked and asked how much weight I'd lost... I looked at the picture again and could see it!

Recently, I've felt as if my weight loss hasn't made much of a difference in my looks, but I have felt SO much better. I feel in shape, and I just feel healthy.

I looked at an old picture of myself, and compared it to the new one... and was shocked.

I am so happy I have changed so many of the bad mental habits I had before, and am losing weight more for my health and wellness than my looks... but damn, it's nice to SEE the result of my changes!

The before picture was about mid 270s , I don't know. Very heavy, probably my heaviest. The after was taken tonight at 213. I know I have a long way to go, but I know that I will get there. It took an internal change to allow this and I partially have SparkPeople to thank for that.

Oh and the tradition I didn't follow? Finishing the whole bag of popcorn by myself.

    YAY! And way to not finish the popcorn. It feels so good to have others notice the big changes, but it's SO nice to be able to look back and see them yourself as well!

    You have definitely achieved a NSV (non-scale victory) with the mental attitude you have toward your healthy lifestyle. NSV is a phrase I've seen on other blogs since I signed up with SP in mid-October.
