Default WOW! Comparison shots!

So I decided to take some pregnant belly pictures today, as I am 12 weeks and some change and definitely showing. After taking one in pre-pregnancy shirt that HAD been loose and was now riding up, I donned an old maternity shirt instead to see what it looked like.

This shirt is a good size too big these days, and HUNG off me prepregnancy, and yet it also happened to be the shirt I took my very first weight loss progress picture in, at ten pounds down (247.6). Even with a big belly, I can not BELIEVE what a difference 40-someodd pounds has made in how I look in that same top!


These pictures are on my blog (link in siggy), but I just had to do a little mental happy dance. I have lost SO slowly but kept it off, and I have come much farther than I realize, most days. I was really feeling down this morning and these comparison pictures just bolstered me right up!

Wow, that is a big difference. I am jealous of your baby bump. I never really looked pregnant in any of my pregnancies.

It's so hard to take a pregnancy break, but your belly is adorable and you can STILL see a huge difference in your accomplishment. All the weight is in your belly...where it's supposed to be!

I envy your little belly. Too cute! Miss that time in my life!

I admit I will have a hard time after our last baby, down the road, simply because I love being pregnant so much! But I am definitely excited to resume weight loss in a more aggressive fashion after this one is born.
