05-30-10 - My heaviest...ever. I went to my DS pre-op two days after this picture was taken and they weighed me. It was awful to see the number on the scale. The biggest I had EVER been. Thank God I had my surgery a month later. Oh, and as you can see I have this shirt on in BOTH photos. Yes, I wore this shirt ALL the time. It was baggyish (not so much now that I look back at these photos) but it fit over the fat. I had a VERY small wardrobe at the time. Not much fit so I wore the same few items ALL the time. My friend Deb has wanted to cut this shirt up for a long time now. She threatened to cut it up right after surgery but I told her I still needed it as the wardrobe was still small. I think it's time Deb! Let's cut this sucker into pieces! ;)
12-31-10 - This is me last night ringing in 2011 and 123 lbs smaller. Praise God! I found myself looking at my pictures from last night and still being disappointed at my size. I kept comparing myself to other people and was a little bummed. Then I pulled out the two other photos and realized how far I've come and I know what I am capable of. I can do this. I have done this and will continue to. Thank you God for your reminders in my life!
May 2011 be the best year yet!!!!
