some new "old photos"

Thursday, April 19, 2007

I've been meaning to put up some "before" photos for a while now, so I (and others) can see how far I've come and keep motivated. I finally got around to it this morning, and DAMN! Looking at some of those pics had me saying, "Was I really that big?!" I never want to go back to that. I've been at a plateau for a while, but I'm going to keep at it and break through... wish me luck!

    Had noticed your new/old photos and it is hard to imagine, then again you didn't look so bad. My problem is I felt fat when I was your age (by the way, you're my daughter's age and she got married in Sept too), but really wasn't at all. That was the days of Twiggie and the 60s that started all this mess. Then when I ballooned up post menopause, didn't -- feel -- fat. But seeing pictures made me realize it. A friend handed down her fat clothes and they were too big for me too. It is hard to imagine I was a 1X headed for 2X when I kick started last year, but this year a major plateau, mostly mental. Now I'm a size extra large and yes, NEVER want to go back. I'm keeping a couple of the outfits just to put on occasionally to remind myself when I start to falter (like this week big time!). Thx for the reminder :-)
