Going Down- Photo Proof!

Way back in August '09 I wrote a POST about how I was going to take my life and health back by losing weight, beating depression and getting healthy enough to NOT have a list of issues and doctors that mimics a 150 year old woman's. -Don't believe me READ THAT POST!

Anyway, I have posted little updates here and there and you know I've made huge strides to make good on that promise to myself. Here we are 6 months later and I'm 50 lbs lighter.

I often feel when I look at myself that I don't look like I've lost much at all. I can tell my clothes fit better and some are a lot looser but still just short of  "new wardrobe ready."  So I question a lot how much different I really do look. Then I snapped this photo of myself  with my phone, uploaded it and saw it next to an old "good" photo of myself and I was really shocked!!!!

Take a look:

can you see the differences in my face?

  • The first photo was me with hair and makeup. I am about 15 lbs lighter than second- I added it so you can see compared to now since this is the photo everyone sees of me online thru social networking etc.
  • The second photo was taken THE DAY I DECIDED TO CHANGE MY LIFE. That is my on top of the "mountain" peak. 
  • The last one is me this week. Random shot without my hair or makeup done. 50 lbs lighter in 6 months!!!

To Come in later posts:
  • MY GOALS and how I plan to achieve them!
  • FABULOUS NEWS about one of my medical issues!!!
  • How I lost the weight so far. Don't expect much you don't already know.

Thanks so much for leaving a word of encouragement on my blog. I will be watching you with your challenge, and I hope you have time to check on me. I hope you do well. I know what it's like. Losing weight is such a struggle and as mother's and wives, we always tend to put ourselves last and before you know it years have passed us by. I hope this is the year you make your change. I will be cheering you on as I am sure others will too. God bless you.
