Yet, I found myself lacking in 'before' photos in order to make comparisons. I always hated having my picture taken because the person I saw in the photo didn't correspond with the person I saw in the mirror: the person in the photos was really fat and since I see about a size 16 (which is still overweight, but not as big as reality) when I look in the mirror, it just didn't reflect who I thought I was (and was part of the reason why I think I just kept getting bigger and bigger - I just didn't see it!)
So, I've had to raid my beloved's computer for photos taken in the last couple years. He has them; I do not.
But now that I've got a few to work with, I wanted to 'recreate' them - wearing the same clothes (if I can or still have them) and doing the same thing. Mostly, this is for me, so I can see the changes as I go.
So here's the first installment:
|Summer 2010 (before I started and so approx 327 lbs) April 2011 (48.6 lbs lost)|
Now I can see it.
More to come as I continue along this journey. I also plan to do another set of body shots and measurements in the next couple weeks (probably when I hit the 50 lb loss mark), so be on the lookout for that.
