Thumbs up NPR Feature: Losing 160 Pounds, One Photo at a Time

I just heard this on NPR. What a great story! The photo transformation on her blog is very inspiring.

Makes me wish I had at least taken before pictures!

Very cool! I have a head shot of myself for almost every month I've been losing weight. The differences from month to month aren't all that big particularly given that my weight loss has slowed way down. But the difference from the first to the last is quite a bit!

That's really cool- I love stuff like that!
160 pounds... I can't even imagine what that must have been like. She's definitely an inspiration!

That was interesting, thanks for sharing.
Amazing how different she looked, no wonder she didn't recognize herself in the mirror.

The girl in this article was on Rachel Ray today for a makeover and from what I caught of it the stylist was going to help her get out of her baggy clothing and into something flattering for her new body. I didn't catch the end of the show, I am hoping to watch it online later.
