round

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!

Wow Heidi! You are really looking great. Do you know what my favorite thing about your pictures? It's just like the diet ads. In the "before" you're not smiling and in the "after" you are. You're beautiful!

the Ricks said...

ps. I saw you super pregnant and I really think that before picture is just a bad angle. You were so cute!

Heidi--I finally created an account so I can leave comments because I love reading your blog and I check it everyday! Your life is so interesting and I love looking at all your pictures, especially of the insanely cute, Mae!!

Huge congratulations on how much weight you've lost! You look absolutely fabulous! I love your long hair, too! You are giving me some inspiration because I want to look like you but that would take a loooonnnng time! Anyway, you look awesome and congrats to you and Jayson on your weight loss....way to go!!

Love,
Darcie

Ok, I have to keep looking at the details of the recent picture to make sure it's not you like when you were 14! You look great, and I concur that the long, curly hair looks great! I wish I could change my look as often as you do and have each new look be as cute as yours. You rock.

you look so amazing! and wow, you're like the most awesome person i know for posting a picture of yourself 7 months pregnant. i'm not sure i'm ever going to let my pictures "out of the vault" LOL!

Heather Walker said...

Heidi, you are doing so good. You look great! I'm in the same boat as you. Trying to lose my weight after having my baby, and now its finally starting to come off. I just hope I keep it up, and not give up, so I can look as good as you.

Sheli said...

Heidi....you look AMAZING! Keep up the good work! I am inspired! I still have a ways to go before I am posting before and afters but seeing other people having success keeps me motivated. I have even toyed with the idea of running....looks like its working for you. Keep it up!

John Robert said...

Atta Baby! As Randy Jackson would say, "Dawg, you're bringing the HOTNESS up in here!"

You absolutely deserve to feel this good!

The Watsons said...

Holy crap, Heides! I don't think I've ever seen you so skinny ... You look (as the ten-comments-so-far attest) nothing short of incredible. Of course, it was completely unfair of you to make that post, bytheway. Remember that *I* will be seven months pregnant next week ... and feeling VERY volleyball-esque. Oh, stuff and bother -

The Jorgensens said...

Girlfriend! Way to up the anty! I gotta get my bum in gear to catch up with you. You are seriously "bringing it"! I hope Jay is appreciating your amazing hotness and tells you every day how fantastic you look. July 1 2009 we are going to ROCK IT for Mom and Dad's homecoming.

You know what, that pg pic is really not bad at all. You have always looked very beautiful. And I can TOTALLY relate to the whole pg cravings. When I was pg with Joanna, I think I kept a local bakery in business with all the donuts I ate. Then with Jaclyn it was oreos. Ei yi yi. I ate those by the sleeve. ;-)
Needless to say, I had some hard work to do after each pg.
Mmmm, could it be that carrying girls makes you crave the sweet stuff?!?!

Anyway, you look hot!
