Weekly Photo Challenge: Selfie

I have taken a lot of selfies over the past year and a half documenting my weight loss and how I look now vs. how I looked “before.” This one is from about August I think.

This one is probably from around October-ish:

I have really enjoyed seeing how my body and my life have changed as I’ve lost weight. What I really love more than the physical transformation is how my life has changed.  I really feel that I can participate fully in my own life. Before I couldn’t, not really anyway.

I go on many weekend adventures with my brother and his family.  Often, we just go to the museums in DC.  But one time, we went to the Shenandoah Mountains and drove up and down Skyline Drive enjoying the view.  I had never done that before.

I took this selfie of me, my sister-in-law, and my awesome niece:

And this one of me and my niece:

But I think my favorite picture from that day was when I surreptitiously captured my sister-in-law and her daughter taking a selfie.

I thought this was so cute and captured a wonderful moment between mother and daughter. I am just so happy that I am healthy enough to be included in these moments. I really am the luckiest Auntie ever!
