Update pictures: 40 Pounds Gone

Yesterday I took a couple pictures of myself to show 40 pounds gone. I think I can see a difference. What do you think? (compare to "Before" pictures on the front page of this blog).

238 pounds:


Yes, the pictures are actually in color this time. Who knows, maybe next time I will have a head!

I love your blog and you have been an inspiration to me-I love that you are so REAL and not trying to pretend you are someone that you are not.

I am Michele said...

I don't rememeber how I got here, but I have enjoyed reading your blog. You look great! This is where I am not, about 238. Which is 100 lbs. more than I want to be. I have been heavy since I had my oldest daughter who is almost 9. Before that I was 125 aize 6, never over. Well now after giving birth 3 times, I am at my all time high. I haven't been this heavy since my 9 year old was an infant. But moving twice this year and my husband being injured at work just packed on the stress. I am now working my way back to where I want to be again and your blog is an inspiration to me. I am tired of people saying "wow! you look really great for having 6 kids!". What am I supposed to say? Well then I guess I really look like crap since I only gave birth to 3 of them! Some day I will just look really great. period.

Wow...I am so thankful that I found this site today. I have been on medifast for a week and one day. I have stuck with it and lost 8 lbs so far. My starting weight is the same as yours was. I am so encouraged looking at your pics and seeing recepies and advice. Oh..and I also am addicted to mac and cheese!! It's the one thing I miss the most!! Thank you so much for making such a great site.
