More pics...

I love looking at pictures on everyone else's blogs, so I thought I would post a few. These were taken about 2 weeks ago when Jess and I went to Atlanta for a girls weekend away. I don't really like the full lenght shot (muffin top), but you can see where I've cropped the others to my satisfaction! I love the cropping tool - makes the pictures represent the way I feel instead of me focusing on how big my arms are.

I want to thank everyone for the great comments you leave on this blog. I can't believe I'm up to 108 followers! Last year at this time, I was in a size 28 from Lane Bryant, weighing 333 lbs. I wore croc sandals all the time because my feet and knees hurt constantly. Besides, I couldn't even tie my shoes without breaking a sweat. I was miserable, not just with my weight but also with my marriage.

Through this blog, I think I've came a long way. I am definitely in a better place, and ready to move forward with health and happiness. It may take a while, but I know I will get there one day!

I am BEAT! I did a little over an hour at the gym, then came home and cut the grass (which takes over an hour). I was so hungry and weak by the time I finished I was sick. I feel better now, but still have a headache so I'm about to hit the shower and go to bed!

  7. You look beautiful in the photos! You've come such a long way from 333 pounds and crocs. Way to go!

  8. Yes, you can do it! Do not be overwhelmed by long term target. Set smaller achievable goal. Make yourself feeling good with small success & it will be easy.

    Wonderful job. Cheers!
