I'm blushing like crazy.
It's funny looking at these, I notice much more than just the weight loss. In my start picture -- no makeup, completely messy and ungroomed hair, stains on the shirt (granted, I was doing stuff in the kitchen, but nowadays I put on an apron). I look tired and sallow.
Newer picture -- I put jewelry on, my hair is cut, colored and at least tamed if not styled, I'm wearing a little makeup, and I spent more than 2 seconds on my outfit in the morning. Funny how all these things change.
