Default Progress shots! Yay!

I posted this on my blog but had to share here, too.

I am 169.0 today, which is just four pounds away from my all-time low weight.

Ten pounds ago I hit the Salvation Army for progress clothes and picked up a misses top that was too small, but I loved and thought would be an excellent progress/goal shirt whenever I fit into it.

When I purchased it the entire thing, stretch and all, was about three inches from closing. Yesterday it was fitting except for the bust gaping, which always happens with me (a shirt my literally be falling off everywhere else for the buttons around my chest to not gap when I move) and so I altered it and fixed the problem. And it fit. A little snug, perhaps, it needs another inch off my hips to fit without needing some tugging into place, but I could hardly believe it (in fact, this progress-goal shirt is about the only one I own that actually fits and isn't hug)e. I could scarcely believe it. So I put it on for some of these weight progress pictures, as I think it shows where my losses and remaining trouble spots are far better than my too-big other tops.



The other shots I took with the pink shirt from my last progress pictures, as it still fit though is getting roomy. Excuse the wrinkles, it wasn't well folded.



Pretty good, I'd say! Especially contrasted with ten pounds ago, the difference is small but I see it in my face, at least. Here's 179 for comparison:





It's worth noting I was wearing a shapewear camisole under that top at 179, to make it lay flat. In the 169.4 pictures I am wearing nothing but a too-roomy bra. I can't believe the fit difference in a few pounds for the same item of clothing!

As a final salvo, I have to post two face shots. One is from 200-210, I think, from right after my third baby was born. I was feeling pretty good about myself, since I was still down at least 40 pounds from my high weight. Consider that next to a face shot taken yesterday for a new avatar.





I could have stopped there, at 210, but I am glad I didn't. I wonder what another 40-50 pounds down in that series might look like. You'd better believe I fully intend to find out!

Thanks ladies! I was having a few days of real struggle and doubt at the end of last week, so the progress pictures were a much-needed mental revitalization

The shirt was four dollars, I couldn't resist! And sparkly peeptoe pumps? That was one of my splurges when I got into Onederland.

Thank you so much for the compliments, everyone! It has been a long, slow journey and isn't over yet, but the results have been worth their weight in fat

I just can't believe I weigh what I did as a freshman in highschool, after marriage, babies, and morbid obesity. And I'm STILL obese for another two pounds, according to the BMI. But I am healthier, stronger, and more confident than ever before.
