Thanks Meg! Though I was only there a week, we will be moving much closer next month. We'll just live 8 hours away, so I'll get to see her more often. And I think it's seeing me that motivated her this time. I'm just worried that the family will unmotivate her. So by being closer, getting to see each other more often, maybe it will keep her motivated.

She's so self-conscious now about her weight that although she really wanted a set of those videos (I'd taken one with me to work out to daily while I was down there), she won't do it in front of anyone. So she tries to get up before anyone else does and do it. She also has a lot of health problems which keeps her down. The biggest problem is that she's had surgery on her knee a couple years ago. Now she has cysts forming on her knees. And some of the medications they've had her on for various medical problems also added to her weight problem.

I know if my mom does her like she did me, she's going to have a time of it. I had open heart surgery as a child and mom wouldn't let me do anything. If my face got a little red (since I was white as a sheet anyway) from activity, she'd make me sit down. And she's the great guilt tripper if you try to do anything she sees as self-serving. Taking time for yourself to exercise is a no no. Not wanting to go out to eat with the family means something's obviously wrong with you. She'll say one time won't hurt, but her one times turn into 5 days a week time.

Karyn, that is awesome. I was thinking just yesterday "I wonder what I'll look like when I lose weight" since I've always been overweight, I don't know. I've noticed though that I think I'm starting to look like my cousins and my mom's youngest sister.

Karyn -- those are AWESOME! Thank you for posting them! You also look so much younger and happier! Make sure to take lots of photos in Hawaii in those cute little outfits to share with us.

Nelie -- I didn't have any idea what/who I'd look like when I got to my goal weight and lots of people, including my own father, didn't recognize me for a long time. It's really weird when you walk up to someone you've known for twenty years and they act like you're a stranger. Heck, I didn't even recognize myself when I looked in the mirror. But now when I look back at pictures of myself, it's like I'm looking at a stranger -- a sad and obese stranger -- and I feel so sorry for her, but now I have a hard time remembering looking like that. It's all very strange ...

Karyn -- Those are awesome!! Congrats! It's so nice to put a face to the picture...

DH and I went for a walk on a trail this past Friday and we brought our new digital, so he took a pic of us... When he downloaded it I was shocked at my face compared to last year's pic in August!

I'll try to attach it here goes...

It didn't work very well the pics were all blurry! But I'll try again later...

Ohhh, Ilene, I saw them when you first put them up and even though they're both tiny, I really could see a difference in your face and especially your neck (which a lot of time is what makes us look OLD)! Maybe you could post them in the LWL album and we could see them better?

For any of you Maintainers who doesn't know, the LWL forum (right above this one) has a photo album here: http://groups.msn.com/3FCLadiesWhoLift/shoebox.msnw and you can see all of Ilene's cute pictures there.

Ahh, MUCH better!

And you're right - there's a big difference in your face! (and it's such a cute picture of you and DH )

Cool Me

How about a link? I'll get some good afters and then figure out how to post properly.

This is the difference between 162 (in April 2003) and 125 (in August 2004).

Susan! Lynda Ann! Great pictures! Susan -- you lost quite a few years along with the pounds. And Lynda Ann -- I'm speechless! You went from looking like the mom to looking like the sister!

Weight loss must be the Fountain of Youth!

These pictures are fabulous, people -- let's see lots more!

I posted some of our Hawaii pics... here's how to get to them:

1. go to http://www.snapfish.com

2. enter (for email addy): kstheel@cableone.net

3. enter password: maintain

There are captions at the bottom of each pic (sometimes you have to scroll a bit).

If you can't get in, let me know and I will figure something else out!
