me!!! The new and improved me. Which, interestingly enough is really a lot like the old me, but way happier. Wayyyy more in control of my own life. Way less shy. And most importantly, weigh less!!!
Here is my official before (I wish I had a real before of me in a sports bra and a pair of shorts!!
I have lost 85 pounds since mid-November of last year. I have lost and entire Avery, plus more. Proof?? Here is Avery and I in a pair of pants that I purchased last November that were actually a little too tight when I bought them:
Avery and I wore those pants together for about 15 minutes walking around the house. We laughed and laughed and had way too much fun.
Here is that same pair of pants with my new favorite skirt laying on top…so exciting!!
I’m not kidding you when I tell you I walked into the dressing room with a skirt 2 sizes larger than that, and gasped when it was too big. Grabbed the next smallest size and tears started flowing down my cheeks. Grabbed that one and it fit perfectly! I cried. Tears flowing down my cheeks full on bawling as I looked at myself in the mirror with a skirt 5 sizes smaller than I used to wear!!!
So now me. I apologize for the poor picture quality. But here I am!!
The shirt isn’t that tight, I just pulled it back so you could see my new and improved waistline. I am so proud of me!! And I’m not done yet! I want to lose another 115 pounds. This may actually be an unreachable goal, I really have to think about it. 92 more pounds would be the other option.
Now, for an additional treat…did you notice anything different in the above pictures?? Maybe of my hair?? Check this out:
I am in love with my hair! I have tried to do this myself so many times. So I finally went and got it professionally done!!
Lyz-I love it!!
Chris-You’re a freak.
Delaney-Pink!! Purp!!! Pink!! Purp!! (Repeat for five minutes) *Hands down my favorite reaction*
Avery-Oh my gosh!!
K-Hi Rainbow Brite!
Boss-Did you do something different with your hair? I like it.
Boss (two hours later)-IS YOUR HAIR PINK AND PURPLE???? How did I not notice that earlier???
I’m liking new old me!! I’m crafting again. I caught up my scrapbook last night. I am the me that used to exist, and the me that I’ve been wanting to be! There is NO ONE to hold me back anymore!! Thank you for my freedom!!!!
