That would be LisaN0415, who said WHY DON'T YOU POST SOME PICTURES ALREADY???

Okay, she didn't say it like THAT. emoticon But she did get me thinking!

But I was thinking, well, I don't really look THAT different, and I never took a "before" photo, so how can I really and blah blah blah...

So I was checking myself out in my size 18 pants on Thursday and thought, hey, I could take a picture with my cell phone. So I took some photos in the work bathroom (ha! It's the closest I can get to a full-length photo...).

Then I was flipping through pictures on my phone yesterday and found this one:

That's me, riding a carousel giraffe at the Indianapolis Children's Museum, April 1 2012. I am about 300 pounds here. Upper 290s at the lowest. Size 22 jeans. This was before I started my halfhearted attempt at Weight Watchers again in late spring/early summer, and before I started SparkPeople June 23rd.

Here I am on Thursday, at ~256, 44 pounds lost. (In my size 18 pants. Have I mentioned that I have some size 18 jeans? That fit? I feel like I should let everyone know about that. I have a pair of size 18 jeans. That fit. Rather nicely I happen to think...)

You guys??

    You know exactly how I felt when I pulled those old jeans out of the closet a few weeks ago. The ones that never fit before? They are not 18's. I freely admit they are 28's-but they are 15year old 28's! Which is equal to what, a 20 or 22 now? Another reason we can't always rely on size numbers. Plus I think I'm a foot shorter than you! Roflmbo! But hey, WE ARE DOING THIS!! I looked at the receipt for my CPM, and the medical supply co had my weight as 327 from the last time I had ordered equipment (my walker before I joined Sparkpeople last spring) so I've actually lost even more than I thought! Yay for us!

    Great work, Love the smile!!!


    Look at the progress!

    Take a picture for yourself from the front, from the side and the back and then in another 10-20 pounds do the same!

    Take care!
