Before & After

Yesterday, after weighing in and hitting the 20 lb mark, my dad requested photographic proof. Before and after. Ye gods. Ok. Because I'm kind of a Daddy's Girl, and because he told me how proud he is of me...because of the tears in his eyes...I'll do it. I was going to put a picture of myself before joining Weight Watchers, but I couldn't find one that was a good example. So instead I'll use a couple that I took just 19 days after starting WW. I weighed about 12 lbs more than I do now.


And now a couple of photo taken tonight, minus those 12 a little less painful to look at. Please ignore my face in the first one, I was trying to see if I was actually in the shot when the camera took the picture and I really didn't feel like taking another one.

That's much better. I found a picture of myself in college wearing these same jeans. They've been stuffed in the back of my bottom drawer for several years now because I kept telling myself someday I'd fit in them again. You know, THOSE jeans. And look...I fit in them! It's amazing what losing 20 lbs can do for your self esteem. I highly recommend it.

I wonder what losing the next 20 will look like!
