Ugh.....before pictures :(




I asked my husband to take some pictures today and take measurements of me. Bless his heart, he never makes me feel uncomfortable or embarrassed. I, of course am so disgusted with myself. But, on to a new body and self image!

My daughter is getting married the end of October and I am so excited to actually be able to buy a nice dress. I hope to have a good 40-45 pounds off by then. I am taking her to Kleinfeld's in NYC to buy her dress. She is my only daughter and I am looking forward to the experience.


Thank you for all of the nice and encouraging comments yesterday.

  2. You will so totally be buying a nice dress for your daughters wedding and you will be gorgeous - although not too much, gotta let the bride shine, especially since she's your daughter! What a great thing to look forward to and to work for! I hope you enjoy all the planning and prepping!

    Keep up with the pictures. It's amazing how quickly they change - and while it might seem you don't see anything in the mirror, when I look at pictures (I try to take em every ten pounds or so) I see lots of little things that always make me giddy.

  3. You'll do it! You will also be glad you took the pics and measurements. The first to drop on me was around my waist. I love "Say Yes To the Dress" I hope you are on the show when you are at Kleinfelds. So close now!

  11. I know it's hard to post before pictures. I'm not looking forward to when I have to put mine up. But the good thing is the after pictures won't be far behind.

  14. Congrats on your daughter's engagement and congrats on a surgery date! I can't wait to see the dresses that you pick! What an exciting time for you!

  15. I am so proud of you for posting these pics BEFORE surgery! That is really brave - I could not bring myself to post my before pics until well after my surgery.

    Just think about the During pics that you will be posting, it will be worth it to see the differences! <3

  16. I think you are beautiful...because I know your spirit. I wish I had before pics more than anything in the world on days when I forget how far I've come. Good for you for doing this.

  20. Everyone always thinks their 'before' pics look worse than others do! Yep, again my theory is proven! Your before isn't bad! Thanks for the comments and encouragement, but it ain't gonna happen! Yet! ;)
