Reflecting back (pics)
Sunday, February 16, 2014
I was looking for a file on my laptop tonight and I came across some old photos. Photos that were hard to look at.
I started my journey at 204.5 lbs. By the time I took the first official "before" photo on January 28, 2010, I had already lost 10 pounds. Below are pictures from that day at 194.5 lbs (size 20) compared with the second taken December 31, 2013 at 144.2 lbs (size 12). There's almost exactly a 50-lb difference in the two photos. In the December photo, I was 60 lbs down total since starting.
I've lost another 5-6 lbs since the last photo as well, so I'm still going in the right direction. I've got another 20 or so until I reach my goal. By then, I'll have lost approximately 85 lbs. It's hard to believe I ever let things get so out of control. I never want to go back to living like that. Ever!
I'm so thankful for SparkPeople and the inspiring people I've found on here who helped me get this far. Hugs and love to you all!!
