ChangeThis is a post that I had posted in my main blog but I would like to keep it where it can be seen and remind myself how far I have come. Yes, all of the pictures are me...lol.
(Original post June 27, 2006)
I love my family and can't stand some of them either…lol. I had a wonderful time the entire weekend. Where we were on Saturday it drizzled on and off while we were at our outdoor event. We were blessed with a good day in spite of it all. Each day I ate real good. But guess what I only gained .2 lbs. Go me go me! Okay, that is because I made sure I was moving my bottom everyday. I didn't sit down too much on Friday except to eat, Saturday you would have thought I was a little kid playing all of the games, and Sunday after dinner I got up and danced with everyone else. . So I am very proud of myself.
But you know what I wanted to hear, that I looked good and oh how have I changed. Well most of my family have seen me smaller but not this small so I got a few low compliments. I guess they didn't want to embarrass me. The family I barely remember feels the same about me (extended family), and all the rest remember me as the little girl (5 yrs old above) in the wedding but I am just much taller now. Ghee thanks. I forgot they haven't seen the in between. So this got me digging. Not that I showed anyone though, but I found a few before pictures, actually at my highest (240lbs. at the age of 14 or 15). The before pictures on my picture page are actually tame. I guess that is because I had lost weight previously and I was on my way back up until I had a reality check. So now you can see the ugly truth. Oh, I don't think I ever mentioned that I am blind, so you can see my famous grandma huge glasses.
Well at the bottom you can see me now. That me and my sis at the banquet on the last day of the Reunion. I guess I now can see why my brother said that I don't look like his sister anymore. I don't. I lived the majority (15 years, who's counting) of my life as that other person. These pictures bring up a few emotions for me. I remember doing a lot of crying and how much I thought people didn't like me, but I always had friends. Go fig. (In the black shirt I thought I was too cute last week, I was taking pic at 3am...lol) Did I say family can get on your last nerves, well they can. Out of my Mom and her 5 sisters, only one of them is not dramatic (I'm sorry it's not my mother...lol) Why do they have to put on a show every where we go. I bet you the distant familly thought we were a bunch of crazies. Getting all emotional over nothing. I guess you had to be there. Speaking of crazies.I never really though it was true, but every family really do have crazy people in them. I won't go into detail but just say they were married into the family and we had to watch out for the kids as well as our belongings. Who knew, I always though, "not in mine". I was in for a rude awakening. Well at least I can say that they are not even on the same family tree branch that I come from…lol. Now go look back and for the between the pictures. I already did. And did you see Dee's last comment on my blog she said I look like this season's America's Next Top Model winner, HEY! Model in the house. Yall better watch out...lol. Okay, I know, only in my dreams.

April 2, 2006 pictures clothedI'm thinking that my previous clothed pictures looked a little bit better especially around the stomach area. It'll get better, I know it.
April 2, 2006 pictures in bathing suitYou would think that after a year you would see some progress. Well at least I didn't blow up. It's weird because in these pictures I think I look bigger than before, but I know my measurements say I'm smaller, so I don't get it. This isn't going to deter me, so here's to more progress.

June 5, 2005 pictures clothedI am posting these to show the comparision between the picures I took in January and June. There is definately changes here that I like, but I still have work to do. So let me get to it!
Wow! Look at that side view...lol
June 5, 2005 pictures in bathing suitYes I know I have had no excuse for not posting these especially since I now have a digital camera. So here they are, now you can see the difference a year can make. The bathing suit is still a bit snug but it fits much better than before.
Not too bad

Me In May of 2004
So here they are, me in May 2004 roughly weighing about 232 lbs., ick!
The funny thing here is that I thought that I didn’t look “that bad”, but hello I did. So I guess that is why I am not trying to get too comfortable in how I look now because that is what I did the first time I lost a lot of weight. I thought I was fine how I was and didn’t need to do anymore. So, I stopped all of what I was doing and gained back all the weight to get me to the these pictures. Don’t get me wrong I think I look damn good now, but to motivate myself I have to believe that I can do better, which I know I can.

Me on January 9, 2005
So here are the current pictures. I know I have a ways to go, but you should have seen where I started from. Those are the pictures that I look at for my motivation. What's above are the PG rated pictures. When I am more comfortable with my self I'll post the other pictures where you can see all the creases because in those you can really see the differences.
I think my favorite part of these pictures is my stomach. I'm not sucking in!
My next investment will be a digital camera because these didn't come out like I would want them too. So here's to better looking pictures in the future.
