    Default Finally, It's Picture Time!!

    Hello Everybody! I hope all of you are having a happy Saturday.

    I made goal back in December and when I posted my news, I promised I would post some pictures soon. Then, I made lifetime in early February with yet another promise that I would post some pictures. Well, I finally have pictures and I am posting them proudly!!

    I apologize for the poor quality of the before pics, they were taken with a regular camera and then scanned. They compare nothing to the quality of digital which are what my after pics were taken with.



    Okay, the first picture on the left was taken the morning I joined Weight Watchers, January 13, 2007. I weighed in at 170.6

    All of my after pictures, taken within the last three days, are me at my current weight of 136.




    This next picture on the left was me the day I made my 10% goal. The date was April 14, 2007. I weighed in at 153.4, leaving me 18.4 lbs to go!!





    I will close out with this last picture of myself which was taken bright and early this morning.


    Thank you all so much for allowing me to share my journey with you.

    WOO HOO!! You look wonderful.

    I am right at your starting weight now, and want to be at your ending weight. It amazes me when people say ...oh, you don't need to lose anything and then I see the major difference in you and say...OH HECK YEAH...I want to look like that!!

    Wonderful pictures - you look great!

    Now you should treat yourself to some clothes that will show off your new figure - tucked in, tailored tops, snazzy slim-cut pants. You have nothing to hide!

    Thank you everyone! I tell you what, the before pictures are a true motivation to stay the course that is for sure. I have said before, I knew I needed to lose the weight or else I would not have joined Weight Watchers. However, I just did not see myself the way I really looked. It makes my heart sink to look at the picture from the morning I joined WW'ers. I never want to go back there again.

    Congratulations to all of you for all you have accomplished through your own weight loss journeys. It isn't easy. So, be good to yourselves! You deserve it!

    You DO look fabulous! And I think the fact that you had someone take a picture the morning you joined WW was an early indicator that you WOULD stay on Program and be successful! You are an inspiration, that is for certain.

    Great pictures. I need to get a start photo...I've been hiding from the camera forever. I'm down 14 now so maybe that's not too far off from SW.
