That would be LisaN0415, who said WHY DON'T YOU POST SOME PICTURES ALREADY???
Okay, she didn't say it like THAT.
But she did get me thinking!
But I was thinking, well, I don't really look THAT different, and I never took a "before" photo, so how can I really and blah blah blah...
So I was checking myself out in my size 18 pants on Thursday and thought, hey, I could take a picture with my cell phone. So I took some photos in the work bathroom (ha! It's the closest I can get to a full-length photo...).
Then I was flipping through pictures on my phone yesterday and found this one:
That's me, riding a carousel giraffe at the Indianapolis Children's Museum, April 1 2012. I am about 300 pounds here. Upper 290s at the lowest. Size 22 jeans. This was before I started my halfhearted attempt at Weight Watchers again in late spring/early summer, and before I started SparkPeople June 23rd.
Here I am on Thursday, at ~256, 44 pounds lost. (In my size 18 pants. Have I mentioned that I have some size 18 jeans? That fit? I feel like I should let everyone know about that. I have a pair of size 18 jeans. That fit. Rather nicely I happen to think...)
HOLY FREAKING CRAP WHAT
