I am notoriously camera shy, but I figured I should get over it some day. I am just about halfway to goal, and I finally broke through a plateau this morning (And... I had occasion to take some pictures). Hopefully I do this right!!

Before...



During!

Thanks everyone 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.

Funny how the self esteem rises as the weight numbers drop. I noticed these things as well...but not knowing you personally didn't want to comment that far.
