So, I am so excited to be 12 lbs away from reaching my goal of 135 lbs. I started this journey at 200 lbs. A little over a year later I am so close! In pre-celebration style, I decided to chronicalize my weight loss with picutres! I will be honest. NO ONE has seen some of these pictures, and I really thought no one ever would. I am ok with showing them now because of how far I have come. Its been a tough road, but looking at these pictures makes me feel triumphant! Going sugar free/low carb is the best thing I have ever done for my body.
Months Before getting pregnant- Weight 136ish
During Pregnancy: Got up to 220 lbs! I hurt all over. I hardly recognized myself.
This was taken at 25 weeks preggo. I had gained so much by then! :(
About 32 weeks. THE ONLY PREGNANCY PHOTO ANYONE EVER SAW. Why? Because you couldnt see the rest of my body!
This was taken a few weeks before I delivered. I had almost reached 220 at this point. I was absolutely miserable. I can hardly bare to look at this picture now. Seriously, click on it...make it bigger. Can you see what gaining 80 lbs does to a person!? I don't even look like myself!
This picture was taken at Thanksgiving 2008--5 mo. after having Lawson.
I weighed a little over 200 lbs. NOT HAPPY
This picture was taken at Christmas: 200 lbs. I absolutely hated myself and tried to hide for every photo. This was the only picture taken where I wasn't hiding my face. This is the month I decided to start the SUGAR FREE LOW CARB DIET! I wanted a new life...actually, I just wanted my old self back.
This was taken in May of 2009. 5 months into going sugar free! I had lost about 25-30 lbs. Still not happy with my weight but 25 lbs felt lifechanging already!
By the following Christmas I had lost almost 15 more lbs! This put me at the 155 mark I think.
Currently I am 147. My goal weight is a happy 135..which is pre baby weight! No, my body will NEVER look the same as before but I CAN lose the last 12 lbs! I have come this far and I will accomplish what I set out to do by going sugar free! This has changed my life! Not only have I lost an amazing amount of weight but I have found a way to feel better and be healthier!
Join me in my sugar free/low carb lifestyle!
