Comparing my Sparkpeople t shirts

Today is day 21 of my current streak! (Previous streaks; 290 days and 13 days.)

This morning after my healthy breakfast (steel cut oats, poached egg, 2 clementines and some green tea) I went grocery shopping because we were out of everything! There are 3 different grocery stores in the same general area, so I went to all three in order to take advantage of sales so that I could get the best prices on everything. I stocked up on so much, we almost didn't have room for it all, lol.

As I was walking through the grocery stores, I was just marveling at how easy it is for me to walk! This time last year, walking was so painful for me because of my weight. I would have to park super close to the store, and then lean on the shopping cart as I limped up and down the aisles. I would have never gone to THREE different stores in one would have worn me out completely! But now that I've lost over 71 lbs, things have changed. I no longer park as close to the store as possible...instead, I actually challenge myself to park as FAR from the store as I can! I don't lean on the shopping cart anymore, and I don't limp. I actually walk with a bounce in my step! I'm so happy that I can move so freely, and I think it shows!

This time last year, I wore a size 3X Sparkpeople t shirt. Now, I wear a size L. I have kept that size 3X shirt, and today I thought it would be fun to take a before and after picture....of my shirts, lol. So I laid my red size 3X Spark shirt on the floor, and then put my green size L Spark shirt on top. The difference astounded me! It actually brought tears to my eyes. I look at the difference in the two how much bigger the red one is...and I am so proud and amazed that I went from being that size to the size I am now. Its almost hard to believe that the red shirt really did use to fit me!

I have a size M Sparkpeople t shirt hanging in the back of my closet...and by Spring (which is 60 days away) I hope to be able to post a picture of myself wearing it!

    Wow! What a difference can be made in one year's time. Hard to believe so many of us allowed ourselves to struggle and suffer for so many years of our lives. I'm so proud of what you've accomplished so far.
The picture of the shirts just boggles my mind! My largest has been a 2X (I'm sure there would be any noticeable difference between that and the 3X) and I can't wait for the day that I can throw on an L. Down to an XL so far =)
