50 pounds down......

This was me. 50 pounds ago. This isn't even the "worst" before picture I have, this was just one I had on my work computer. I have worse. I remember the day I took this picture. I didn't think I looked that bad!!!???!!!! Not my best picture, but def not horrible. 5 months later and 50 pounds less, I have to be honest it is almost hard to look at. I don't recognize that person. I can't find my bubbly energy in my face, I can't see the happiness. It makes me wonder, even though I professed it over and over again before I got banded, was I even really happy here?

This is me today. I see "life" in this picture. Maybe it is just me because I know what a huge difference this 50 pounds has made in my life, spiritually and physically. I see myself here. I see Mary.


I don't see a perfect body, or even one that is half way there, but I see accomplishment.


Wow. I can really tell the difference! I hope ya'll can too!


On to other news, I need a fill desperately!!!!! I am eating......lots. Nothing out of control, but if I don't get it under control it could be a problem! I have a fill scheduled for this week I think! I have to double check! I have some more pics I would love to share of me in my undies! You can really tell a huge difference in those!!!! I am just kinda worried about it, because I think some real life "stalkers" have found my blog! Part of me wants to just say whatever, it is my body, i have worked hard, and own up to it! Kinda sounds empowering doesn't it!!!???!!!


What are ya'll's opinions?

I forgot to mention.....size 20 cords fron Old Navy, size XL top from Old Navy, boots from Lane Bryant! :)

Wow, you look so good, and yes, happy! I love you outfit! I also say, it is you blog, and if you want to document your body (minus some clothes) more power to you! I have done them before, but I don't think anybody from "life" reads my blog. Keep up the amazing progress, and do another VLOG, I miss those!
