Before & After–That’s Me!

In the past 4 years I’ve gone from being a definite before…

To a constantly changing after…


I don’t have a lot of pictures of me in the “before” stage because I avoided cameras.  My patent phrase was “I’ll take the picture.”

But I do have a few that some wonderful friends have scanned and shared on Facebook much to my chagrin.

And then there are the middle times where I had lost over 80 pounds but started putting it back on due to stress, free food and no time to exercise.  Oh yeah and that pesky back problem thrown into the mix.

Then I got my butt in gear and started heading back to my happy healthy weight.  It was a long trip.

At my wedding I felt amazing and gorgeous.  The princess fairytale I was supposed to dream about while I was too busy climbing trees.

Wedding day bliss!



The dress was TOO BIG!  I bought it at my regain heaviest and didn’t try it on in my rush to pick it up.  My friend had to literally cover my butt and blue lace underwear with some fancy pin placement. Winking smile




My uniform was 6 sizes smaller from application date to graduation date; and then 2 sizes smaller 8 months later.  I was the incredible shrinking woman.

I do wear regular clothes too.  Sometimes formal, sometimes casual.  However they all fit and feel good.

Looking at these pictures reminds me of how much I’ve changed.  I can see it not only on the outside but on the inside.  I’m up for any more changes that come my way….because It All Changes.

      I’m a repeat WW too. I got to lifetime and then stopped with crazy stuff and realized I needed the support of friends struggling with the same things.
