I looked back to one of my original posts. I was so excited that I had lost 30 pounds. Here is the picture that I posted on that post.I can hardly stand to look at the picture of me when I first started this diet. It was December 6, 2006 and I was 50 pounds heavier and had an extra 7 inches on my waist. Not to mention the extra inches elsewhere. I put on the same outfit today that I wore on 12/6/06. The pants that used to be so tight around the waist now hang on my hips. I can pull them up and down without even unfastening them. The shirt is so baggy I feel like I could fit another person in there. I tried to pull the pants out so that you could see what a difference it is. Not only are the pants really baggy, I can't help but notice my face. Not just that it is thinner, but in the picture on 12/6/06 I am smiling, but I don't look happy. In this picture taken today, I actually look happy. Of course I feel happy inside too and that makes such a difference. I was so miserable being so overweight. I just wasn't happy and I never felt good. Now, I feel great, I think I look great and I am smiling from within. What a difference. I know I will notice a more drastic difference when I compare the pictures I took today to when I am a total of 100 pounds less. I can't wait!
I knew that this shirt was baggy, but I can't believe how much extra material I was able to grab in my hand. This shirt used to stretch along the button line because it was getting so snug.
So, here I am in a profile view to show you the difference. I don't look 9 months pregnant anymore, that much is for sure! I still don't like the profile view of me now, but it is much better than the original picture taken.
