Goal Photo Album - DGAdDawg's Before and After!

View Full Version : DGAdDawg's Before and After!

Ok, So I finally set up a photobucket and can do this! Here we go.

This is me, March 2005. The first is me and The Boy at my sorority formal, our first date. We broke up 2 months later because of distance.

I'm not sure because I didn't have a scale, but I think my weight was 158ish. I remember going to the doctor around that time and weighing that.

This is me about a month later. I don't think I'd be exaggerating to say I'd hit 160. I am 5'2", almost 5'3"

And in May 2005 at Disney World:


I started watching what I ate and working out a little over Summer 2005. Same for that fall, but I wasn't seeing huge results. I find out in December 2005 I'd be in a friend's wedding in April,so I decided to put some more effort into things. I started walking to and from class everyday instead of driving. That was a built in 2 mile walk per day. I didn't do a lot in terms of dieting except making better choices and not eating out as much. I didn't notice any loss until I bought a size 8 in Jeans and weighed at Spring Break and discovered I'd lost 30 pounds since March 2005!

Here is me at that wedding and later, in the same dress, at my formal. April 2006. I was around 125 at this point.


I lost more over the summer. Here is me in Fall 2006, around 115, I believe


The lowest I hit was 107, which is probably a bit too small. I've gained a little back, but I'm hovering around 119. I'd like to get down to about 113 or so, but right now I'm focusing on toning up my abs! Here is a picture from my company Christmas party, December 2007.


AND, I know this is a long post..remember the boy from the top? We broke up, went our separate ways. Each had another serious relationship. This fall, we came to our senses and realized we wanted to be with each other and we're going on 2 months. these pictures are from before a wedding at the end of December and his visit last weekend.



Sorry for such a huge post!!
