This picture was actually taken AFTER I started my diet. I think I was about 265 here - July 2009. I almost barfed when I saw this picture. LOL
These pictures were taken 7 months earlier on Christmas Eve, 2008. I was tipping the scales at 298 here, and I'm sure I floated over into the 300 range at some point.
Do you love my fat arm? LOL I've had 4 links taken out of my watch since then.
And that's my beautiful sister with me, though she looks much more foxy today. She's very rock and roll!
And here's the after, at 227.2:
The last picture was taken maybe 2 or 3 months ago, but there was only a few pounds difference. I thought it was a good pic to show that my face isn't nearly as disgustingly chubbly as it used to be! LOL
Oh, and you know what's awesome? I showed Hubs those before pictures of me, most notably the one of my in the bathing suit. I blew it up really big on my computer too. LOL And you know what he said?
"That's okay, you still looked nice. And look at your boobs!"
While the last comment may be very typical for a man, the first comment is the one that speaks volumes about my husband. He is accepting of so much, and he looks so much deeper than just the physical. And he's gorgeous!!! I think I'll keep him. ;)
4 links out of my watch, 6 inches off the waist of all of my pants, and 4 notches over on my belt. I'm doing okay. :)
