Our friend John sent Jayson this picture today. It is a picture of Jayson and I at his wedding dinner about one and a half years ago (Sorry J, I cut you out...this post isn't about you). I was 7ish months pregnant and feeling it. Have I mentioned before that I used to eat a large chocolate milkshake (12oo calories?!!) a day when I was pregnant? It was my drug/copping mechanism of choice.
As I got back from the gym this morning, Jayson pulled the picture up to show me how far I've come. I'm so grateful to see it, because I REALLY didn't want my picture taken the whole time I was pregnant, and consequently have few pictures to look back on. I'm so grateful to see this one.
Here is the full body shot. It is...attractive.
But lets zoom in on my face. Round. Volleyball-esk.
And now here is one of the more recent pictures of my face.
I have a chin again! Whoot, whoot. I've always kept a talley of how much weight I've lost at weight watchers, but I did lose 13 pounds before I ever joined. If I include that, I've lost 35 pounds since having Mae. I'm at least another 12 pounds from my goal.
But my, oh my, it feels fabulous to celebrate along the way! Thanks for the picture John!
