Before: May 2012, approx. 205 lbs.
Now: Today, July 2014, 156.8 lbs. (In the bathroom at work.)
To get to this point, it’s taken me about two years.
In June 2012, I joined Weight Watchers with a friend from the office. A combination of a diet overhaul and amping up my activity has allowed me to loose 45 pounds. I’m still in my “during” phase, but I don’t think that’s grounds to not celebrate progress! Looking forward to murdering these last 16.8 pounds.
I often times see before and afters that talk about how unhappy the subjects were in their before. That’s not totally the case with mine. While I was far from thrilled with my body, I was truly happy in that photo. I was in a beautiful city with my two best friends who live in opposite corners of the country. My job was great, I was feeling good. But about two weeks later, my good friend, Jessica, convinced me to start going to meetings with her, and it changed my life. I feel physically better. I feel emotionally better. I feel great.
