Pictures

Ok so I hate having my pictures taken!  I guess cause I don’t feel like I look very nice so I don’t want to see it.  Anyways I do like seeing the changes in my body so I decided to take pictures at each 50-100 pounds so I can see the progress.  Hoping this will help keep me motivated.

I wish I had taken a picture when I started this journey but I didn’t so I found a picture of myself that I had taken after I had Zowie when I was starting a diet to lose weight from my pregnancy. So that will have to do as a starting point.

This was taken after having Zowie (around 400 pounds)

Around 400 pounds

And here is a picture of me at Zowie’s second birthday party.  I have no idea how much I weighed at this point but I know well over 400.  This would have been in April 2011 and I started my journey in September 2011 so a few months before I began.

So today I took new pictures of myself after losing 100 pounds.  This would be only losing about 40 pounds from the picture above though.  Hope that makes sense.

Ok so I obviously still have a loooong ways to go but I can tell a difference for sure and I feel soooo much better that even if I don’t look like I want to I’m so happy with how I feel it makes it all worth it.  I’ll post as I reach my goals from this point on.

I got a new look on 4/20/2012 to help celebrate my 100 pounds lost.  Here is my new look!

Me and my 11-year-old both fit into my old shirt (I wore this shirt all the time a year ago). I can’t believe how huge it was on me now. (11/8/12)

My old size 36 jeans, they fall off me now! I am wearing a 24/26 now that’s 5 sizes! 11/8/12

Another old pair of jeans size 38 and if you can’t tell from the picture I have both my legs in one leg hole! 11/8/12

My old work pants, I had a bunch of these probably 15 pairs in all colors and I wore them to work everyday.  These are a size 6X, I’m wearing a 2x/3x now.  If you can’t tell from the picture I have both my legs in one leg hole and I actually was able to spread my feet apart (didn’t do it in the picture but was able to). 11/8/12 148 pounds lost!

Before and After Picture, these are the pants that I used to wear to work and now can fit both legs into one leg!

Decided to add a new picture of me, havn’t done this is awhile.  This was taken on 12/1/2012 I weight 317.8 pounds in this picture that’s a loss of 153.2 pounds

Ok so I have never really had a good body image at all.  However, as I lose weight and meet my goals I have tried to see the progress that everyone tells me I’ve made.  The other day I took this picture but I really like it and this is progress for me because I have NEVER taken a picture that I like.  So I’m adding this to remind myself that I’m starting to like myself on the outside for the first time.
