  • I have never really liked to have my picture taken.  It probably has something to do with my issues with my size.  Until I started my weight loss "get healthy" journey, I was a 5'8" 292 lb "Fat Girl"  (I have never minced words with myself... I was FAT and I was not ashamed of it.).  The issue is finding before pictures. Luckily, my doctor requires a before picture and I was able to talk the nurse into giving me a copy of it.

    So here is the official before picture...me at 292 lbs.  I also thought a picture of me in a "happy" situation might be helpful.  Here is another "before" picture taken in August.

    Now... just because I have lost weight doesn't mean that I like to have my picture taken.  So here is the latest picture at 185 lbs (107 lbs lost).

    As you can see things have changed substantially.  I strongly recommend to anyone who is just beginning a weight loss journey, that they take before pictures.  Then when you get discouraged you can look at it and realize how far you have come and get motivated to continue to your goal.

    Next time I have a picture to post... it will hopefully be of me in my goal dress size and at my goal weight.

    Keep on getting healthy!
