    Default I'm joining in....

    I mostly stick with one group on BCB but am trying to be more adventuresome and this is so inspirational! Thanks to all who are sharing pictures. I began WW Jan 11th of this year (I was LT in 1988 and a group leader for 12 years, but slid back into nasty old habits for a few years).

    This is me Christmas 2007 with my oldest DGD (my top weight):


    I asked my DH to take a pic of me after I lost 15 lbs to see if I could tell any difference:



    And then more recently when I reached 28.2 lbs lost:



    I was thrilled to see the "bag" on my neck was already gone after 15 lbs. I'm getting there one day at a time. I have less than 20 to go to reach my WW goal and then will go a little lower.

    Lisa, how nice of you! It is always amazing to me how much difference a few lbs can make in appearance and in the way you feel. I can tell you that I felt even older than I looked in the Christmas picture! I already feel so much better.

    I am still looking at all these wonderful "befores and afters" and all I can say is "WOW"! I have been so motivated and encouraged as I look at all your successes. You have all done such an amazing job of working toward or reaching goal!

    Btw, I am 5'1".

    Thanks again, everyone....what an encouragement you all are! Now my total is over 31 lbs. I still see all the flab every day (I always make myself look in a full length mirror every morning), but a lot less of it. I guess we all feel like "Will I ever get there??".

    Bonnie, we can tell the changes from the avatar pictures, but I had forgotten just how far you have come! I know Tom is so proud - and you should be, too! Jan T
