Before and Current Pictures

OK world.. here it is. My before and current pictures. I HATE pics of myself, but I think it's time I shared some.





Before: Taken in 2006 at my all time high weight of 203.




Current: Taken today (with the help of my son) at 171.2.

So that's what almost 32 lbs lost looks like on me. Sadly, I don't see a lot of difference. But I'm extra critical of myself, so no big surprise there. Thank the Lord for the scale and smaller clothes!

Thanks Cindy! I do see improvement.. but I mostly just see fat. Self image is a tough one to conquer. It took me months after reaching my goal last time to realize I was no longer the "fat girl" I still felt like. I imagine I'll have to go through that all over again, although I hope this time it will happen quicker. :0)

Of course there is a difference. Focus on the FACE! Good Job! I still look in the mirror and see fat and I've lost 140 lbs. It isn't fat it is skin but it looks like fat to me even tho I know it isn't. We are our own worst enemies! Hope you are feeling better soon!

Thanks Tess! You are so right, we are our own worst enemies.

SG I think part of it too is the tops, you after pic has an all white top which as we know white makes as look bigger. You bum, hip, love handle areas are definately much smaller I think!

Thanks Sherrie! I am smaller all over. I've went from a size 20 to 14... I can even wear some 12's! But again, it's all about how I percieve myself. I didn't think about white making us look bigger. And my shirts have always been oversized. I also have a large bust and I'm not losing much there right now. All in good time.

You gotta be kidding! *I* see a lot of difference! You look lovely!

I wish I didn't lose in the bust. I think I've lost more in the bust than anywhere else!

You're doing great. That is very cool, and very inspirational.

Well I can certainly see the difference but one thing I noticed is how much YOUNGER you look. Wow! Congrats. I feel you. REALLY, had a horrible last few days, after losing almost 80lbs I STILL look obese. So I feel you, I REALLY do!! Congrats on your great success!!

You can definitely see it, especially in your face. Good for you! You look wonderful.

Thanks PJ! I need to lose in the bust, I've always had more than my fair share. In that regard, I've felt like a freak most of my life. I lost a bit last time, I hope I get back down to the bra size I was then.

LC Band-it ~ Thanks! Last time I lost the weight, I went to Vegas with my hubby and my parents. My dad was standing at the Keno area, placing his bet. He handed me some money and told me to do the same. They guy behind the counter looked at my Dad and asked if I was 21. I could have kissed him! I was just getting ready to turn 30! :0)

Thanks so much Tracy!
