Those are NOT my beers in the background! I do not drink beer. Ack!
This was me last June.
And this is me early September when I decided to start working on exercise and diet after finding out I have diabetes.
This was me several years ago when I was at my highest weight ever!
Yet here I am last week looking totally different. I am down almost 60 pounds now, and down around 80 pounds from my highest weight ever. Can you believe that when I saw this picture I almost didn't recognize my own face? I think I look darn good for being 50! That's my friend Stacy on the right. We were out watching a band and dancing for her 34th birthday!
I really do need to get a full length pic too. Working on that.
As you can see, I changed the hair too. Thanks to the
It's really odd to lose this much weight because I have never been succesful at weight loss before, but then I never really tried. In my mind, I am still that bigger girl. I still think of men looking at me like I'm much bigger. Now instead of being a proud fat chick, I am just chubby. It's weird to me. I still have 60 more pounds to go to reach my goal weight though, but if I don't reach that goal, I will still be thrilled at where I am right now.
The funny thing is that last week I joined a contest where I get a pretty darn good prize if I can lose the largest percentage of body weight. What did I do? I GAINED two pounds! lol I'm not discouraged though. It's part of the journey and last week was a crazy, stressful week. I am back on track this week.
Sorry, but no tablescape this week. I just didn't have the resources to get something around. Should be back next week.
I finally joined Facebook! If anyone wants to be my friend on Facebook, just let me know. Oh, I have NOT joined Farmtown or Yoville or any of the games on Facebook. I figure I already have too many time wasters!
