My weight photo journey - 9 year span

Thursday, October 31, 2013

I started working on something this morning which is work in progress - it was going to be a small collage of photos to track my weight journey but it became much more than that. Photos depicted from the age of 33 to 42 which is now.

Apart from having a small amount of weight data as well as photographs that didn't always have the correct date on them, I managed to piece this together so far. There are a few years worth of photos missing (2011, 2012) as they are saved on a different computer which I don't have set up at the moment. Probably a good thing as those were the years I was putting on weight anyway.

Basically this story told me that it was a combination of my stressful job and my quitting smoking were the main contributors to my massive weightgain. From when I started that job in March 2009 to Sept 2013 I'd gained 20kgs. As I've mentioned in previous blogs I have been a good size all my life - this collage shows where it started to go pear shaped LITERALLY!!

I need to work on this and use different photo's etc to tell my story - this is just the beginning and what it looks like at the moment. I thought it would be nice to share with my SP friends thus far.

This was a really nice exercise for me to do as it really took me for a walk down memory lane and helped me look at myself objectively and pin point when things started to become unhealthy for me. I know what to avoid in future as I don't ever want to go back there again.

Have a great day/night everyone and thanks for cheering me on!

    I have to agree with MYJOY you do look lovely in all those photographs, you have a radiant beauty.

You look particularly stunning in that red dress on the beach. Do you still have it? emoticon
