In the meantime, I thought I would share a picture I found today of me in 2006 at about 278 (or more) pounds. I think my legs have changed a bit. But look, my head is the same, and my baby looks just like me!

Update Pictures: 50 Pounds Gone
When I first saw these pictures, I was dismayed. I didn't see any real difference from ten pounds ago. Granted, ten pounds is not earth shattering, but I had hoped to see some big changes anyway. I almost didn't want to post them at all. I even tried on a different shirt to see if I looked thinner (ha). But in the interests of honesty and "being real," I am gonna post them anyway. I do hope folks can see some changes in these. Compare to the "before" pictures on the left sidebar.
What helped me the most is remembering that over this last 10 pounds, my upper body measurements barely changed, but my lower body shrunk significantly... 3/4" off each thigh and 1.75" off my hips. I don't measure my butt, but let me say that all my jeans have become quite baggy in the rear and thighs this month. So that's where I look for the changes... and I do think these pictures show a bit of a smaller lower half. I do realize the picture quality is pretty rough. Maybe I will get brave next time and let someone ELSE take my picture, in adequate lighting, instead trying to keep taking them myself in my mirror and then cropping off my head. Maybe...
