Before & After

Well, it is confession time! I have hesitated to put up a before and after shot of my weight loss journey so far. I think perhaps because looking at it makes me feel a little queasy! However, in order for my family in NJ to see me, this is a necessary step. So.....

Here I am before joining Weight Watchers back in January of 2009:
Now after 9 months I have lost 54.8 lbs:



What the pictures do not show is that I feel amazing and am healthier than I have been in years. I have been on blood pressure medication since my days of infertility at least 12 years now, and presently my doctor says I need to be off this medication (as well as other medications)! 2010 will be the year that I meet my goal (35 more pounds) and I become a Weight Watcher's Leader! 2010 will also be the year I get off all my medications. 2010 will be the year I run my first 10K! I have a lot to look forward to!

Great job! I gotta be honest I never saw you as heavy as you appear in that before picture. Your heart has always overshawdowed your outward appearance, I think you understand all that I am saying. Amazing though! Has Weight Watchers seen these pics?? Can you say spokesperson? love ya
