Happy Fat Tuesday! (Read 48 times)


@runjerseygirl

    I've seen these on FB, and I thought I'd start it here, too.  So many of us have gone through dramatic weight losses, and it's always fun to look back and see how far we've come.  So in honor of "Fat" Tuesday, here's my fat pic, and my now pic.  Feel free to share yours!

              Thanks everyone!  It's natural to be hard on ourselves when we are having bad days.  Sometimes we need to look back and remember all the hard work we've put in, and where it's brought us.

               

              Jen, you look amazing!  Congratulations! Smile

                Great job!!!  It's hard to see the body transformation, but your face really shows the difference.  Here's mine:  Jan. 2012 and Jan. 2013

                      I'll play.

                      Here's one from a couple years ago at my heaviest (~255#):

                       

                       

                      and me a few weeks ago for my sons' 6-month photos (~215#):

                      I love this shot because it shows my belt (along with my beautiful family, of course). I've had that belt for years and I just recently hit the last notch for the first time.  Still have some work to do, but i'm on my way!!

                      They'll tell you that failure is not an option.  That's ridiculous.  Failure is always an option.  It is the easiest and most readily available option.  It's your choice though.

                              First shot is at my middle sisters wedding in 2006 and approximately 235lb. I fluctuated between that and a lower limit of about 225 until the spring of 2010 when I started running.  Second pic is at the 2012 Freep Detroit Marathon (ran the half). About 190.  I'm sitting at 183 right now, but no pics.

                                What a clever title by the OP, I was thinking something totally different.

                                 

                                You ladies and gentlemen should all be proud of yourselves.
