What you actually wanted to see.

Trust me, I know. Before and After pictures are what everyone wants to see when you talk about weight loss like I did earlier this morning. And honestly? I used to be horridly ashamed of my before pictures. I admit that when I took them, I'm not even so sure I was confident there would be any "afters". But I did them anyway.

I'm so glad I did. I'm not so much ashamed at my before's anymore. I mean, it shows a journey. It shows a transformation. And I'm okay with that. So what if my fat pictures are out there floating the internet? At least it's paired with a confident negative 45 pound picture, right?

So, if you even read any of these words because I'm sure your eyes skipped right down to the pictures, I applaud you. Oh, and I thank you. You know, for just cheering me on.

Woohoo! Go me! I did it!




Sigh.

It was worth it.

  12. Looking amazing!! However, I'm certain I would have loved you before too. You're clearly beautiful on the inside and out and the mirror never reflects true character. I'm glad I've gotten to know you, but wish I could have been there to cheer you on when you began your journey. BRAVO for your success, skinny minny. <3
