Bonus Blog: Before Pictures For Jane

Monday, October 07, 2013

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!!

    Your are my goddess of inspiration! You look beautiful in all the pictures. You look healthy in your "after" pictures. The best thing about you, Marsha, is that you are as beautiful inside as on the outside. I'm so happy to be your Spark Friend. My lucky day! emoticon

    Good job -- it's hard even now to look at my before pic (but I do have one in my SP photos). It's good to look at it now & then and remember how far I've come. Some days I forget! And some days I still feel like I'm a heavy woman.

    It's great to see the before pictures. You are so clearly a very nice woman, regardless of weight: but I know you feel better about yourself now.
