So, who would have believed that I am doing one of those shots, a before and after, but I had to see it for myself and plenty of people were asking me if I had any earlier photos. They had definitely remembered that I had been quite a bit chunkier, but over the course of time when you see someone, those memories fade and no one thought there had been much of a change. I can tell by my clothes, but having one of these shots gives a more accurate view than what we imagine in our minds.
I took the shot on the right this last Sunday and have been looking through some older photos. I have not been able to find a photo from June 20, 2011 so far, which is the day before I started, and will keep looking. You could say that it was somewhat spontaneous, because it was, I was not planning to start and did not really have the idea in my mind, but that day on June 20, I felt so uncomfortable that I knew, I just had to do something else, something even if it would be considered drastic.
Now I am getting pretty close to six months and I am working on applying what I have learned from this journey so far to other areas of my life. I will write a separate post regarding that.
Now, I really do not want to be the only one on here with a before and after, so please send some in and I will post them!
