FOURTY pounds gone and photo comparison challenge

This morning I weighed in at 220.6.

What does that mean???

2.2 pounds gone this week so far - my "official" weigh in day is Sunday

11.8 pounds gone in a month (from 3-9 to today)

FOURTY pounds gone total!!

Whoot!! You couldn't beat that with a sharp stick!

A couple of days ago I told you guys about Jessica's photo comparison challenge.

Here's the results of my challenge!

My Before pic, taken January of 2010:

And my After pic, taken Easter day 2010:

Look!! I have a neck!! I have one chin instead of three. You can see a defined jaw line and cheek bones. You probably don't know by just looking but my smile is very forced in the first picture. I was trying to be a good mom by riding the ride with Monkey but I was not happy about it. I was stuffed into the seat and very uncomfortable. Though we haven't been there since, I know that I will fit into the seat much better. The biggest difference? Notice I said in the before pic I was TRYING to be a good mom. In the after pic, I had just gotten done putting up the 20 ft pool for the boys - Ive never actually participated in putting up a pool before. Ive only watched. I'm not trying to be a good mom anymore - I AM a good mom!

I can see a big difference. You are looking great. 40 pounds is a big deal.

I have very few pictures of me with my girls because I Was in total denial of what I really looked like and on the off chance I should see myself in a photo it would upset me greatly. I regret that now because I can never get that back. This summer I'm taking lots of pictures with the kids on our summer trips even if I'm not at goal.
