New Selfie: Before/After

OK, as promised, I took a new picture of myself this am at work  The only place I could find a decent mirror was in the lady’s room, so sorry for the crappy location.


But I think I do look pretty good.  I am wearing one of my favorite dresses.  It’s a size 16 from the ladies department at the Dress Barn.  I did not have to buy this from the plus section!  Woot!

I also weighed myself this am.  I lost another pound, so I am down to 177 and 52 pounds from my goal weight of 125.

It’s really hard to believe that I have lost 121 pounds.  I mean, I can see it clearly.  To get a good before/after shot, here’s the pic of me at my friend’s wedding that I’ve posted a few times already.  I think I weighed over 300 pounds in this pic.


Just in case you’re not aware, I’m the one in pink on the left — because it’s not painfully obvious which one’s the 300 pound chick, right? (That’s for you, baby sis!)

I sometimes feel like I have a long way to go.  I lost my first 50 pounds just between October and December.  Sounds like it should be easy enough, right?  But sometimes, the last bit left always seems to be the hardest.

Apart from struggling with that, I am pretty proud of the progress I’ve made.  Whether I lose that last 52 pounds or not, I have gained so much in terms of quality of my life, it’s unbelievable.  I never want to go back!

  1. Your transformation is amazing… I keep showing people pics when I get them, and they’re amazed! So happy and proud. :*

    Don’t worry about the last 52 lbs… you’re life is amazing. Keep the goal, but don’t obsess. Just use it to keep you on track. Focus on what you’ve gained (or lost!).
