Picture This: Halfway To My Goal

I am a little over halfway to my goal and I thought it was time to post some progress pictures. I am still in shock that I've made it this far!

These are the BEFORE shots (taken at our annual team meeting in October 2007) when I weighed 370 pounds and had to purchase a size 32 jeans for an activity we had done earlier that day:



These are the AFTER shots (taken this past week) where I now wear a size 22/24 jeans. Can you tell which picture shows me wearing the size 32?

My arms alone are nearly half their former size!

I have had people telling me for months how great I look but I wasn't able to see it day to day. It wasn't until I saw these pictures this week that I finally saw what everyone else saw. The progress I have made is truly stunning and I am really motivated to continue on to my goal weight.

Onward and downward.

OMG! You have done such an awesome job! I know how you feel about not seeing your progress, until you look back at the old pictures and compare them to new pictures.

Another thing that I see, is that you look happier too! It is truly stunning and great motivation to see your progress.

First of all. let me be the next in line to tell you how VERY pretty you are! I'm SO happy for you for the progress that you've made! Isn't it amazing to see yourself in Before and After pictures to be able to compare and see how far you've come?! I have been taking pictures of myself monthly since I started Weight Watchers 1 year ago. At first it was SO hard emotionally to take that Before picture, but I'm so glad I did.
Thanks for sharing these with us. They ARE very motivating and inspiring! You are doing a great job!!!
