Before and Now

Last weekend I took full-length photos because I want to be able to look back at these photos this time next year.  I love looking at before photos because it’s the simplest way to remind myself that I’ve come a long way.

I wish I had taken the jacket off in the photos this weekend because I’m a little smaller than I appear in that picture through the middle, but you get the idea.  I’ll keep working to get back into my groove so that we can do the same thing with these current photos next year.

    You're such an inspiration to me.
    I've been trying so hard to lose weight for many, many years, but I have failed. I've gone off the diets, worked out for a few weeks then stopped, and start all over again.
    Reading your progress and seeing what you've accomplished has helped me stay on track.
    I know it can be done!
    I can't wait to see your pictures next year!

    First off, I am a regular follower of your blog. I love this new layout–you changed it overnight! And congrats on your 1001b loss. Pictures are certainly worth a 1000 words. Keep up that determination!

    Next year you'll be on the cover of People's "How They Did It…Half Their Size" and I'll want a signed copy!

    Wow, you have come a long way! Good for you. Looking at before pictures always motivated me–you don't notice yourself as much when you're changing, but the pictures tell the truth. More so, I believe, than the scale.

    You have already come so far! It is amazing to me! I need to take more progress pictures. I hate full body pictures, but I agree that they make a huge statement once you have lost the weight.

    You have really done well! What made you finally decide enough was enough and start dieting? I have such a hard time sticking to things.

    You have come SO far, Kenz! You really should be very proud of yourself. I'm proud of you and don't really know you. :o) I love that you took pictures from all angles, it really does help to see the changes later on. Sometimes your front will look smaller and sometimes your rear will! 😉 I know you'll have a great year in 2011 and will continue to see great changes.

    I just passed through a series of blogs and arrived here, WOW, You are on an incredible journey, I'm really inspired! I've been paddling along on my journey for years and still have over 100lbs to go. I'd like to add you to my blogroll as I reckon anyone struggling on a really long weight loss journey should come and look at this blog! 🙂
