My great SparkFriend and local SparkTeam member, JANEWATKINS, challenged maintainers to post before pictures. I finally got a few scanned today. So here they are for Jane. The following two picture I took out of my daughter's scrapbook and are the closest to my maximum weight of 212 pounds. One was taken at Disney World in March 1999 and the one of me in the green suit was taken at my daughter's high school graduation in May 1999:
Here's a more recent photo, taken August of 2007. I probably weighed about 180 in this picture. And I remember thinking that I looked really slim in that pale blue outfit!! Self-deception can be fun. Hey, do I remind you of Tweedle Dum? (I started my current healthy eating streak on December 1, 2008.)
Wish I knew how to do a before and after composite in one picture. Maybe I'll learn some day. It's good not to forget how far I've come as I struggle a bit to establish my best weight. I am so glad that after all these years I've finally learned how to live at (or at least very near) the weight I love to be!!
