The Difference a Year Makes

one year

Yesterday marked week 52 of this weight loss journey. One year later, I’ve seen incredible changes… in my body and in my life! Here’s a picture of the physical changes. The top row is my Before pictures, taken April 10, 2010. The bottom row is the pictures I took last night, April 10, 2011. One year and 55lbs lighter.

Also yesterday, I discovered that I don’t have any summer clothes that fit! So while I won’t be buying any rocawear jeans, I will be “rewarding” myself by looking for some shorts/capris to wear now that the weather is getting nicer! I even have my eye on a really cute skirt, but that will have to wait until I have more money in my budget I think :)

Obviously, I still have quite a way to go, but I’ll get there eventually. The food plan could use some more focus, and I’ll probably be adding in some more exercise somewhere as (*whimper*) my body seems to have adjusted to the skating three times a week! I’ve been stuck on a plateau for a couple of months now, and it gets frustrating. But it’s hard to stay frustrated when I look at these pictures and see how far I’ve come in a year.

    You are certainly to be commended. What great ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos! It’s not unusual to get stuck on a plateau sometimes, but it does help to look back at what you have achieved already and just think about that cute shirt! Well done.
