Comparison photos.. a brief history of my diet.

I had a great time in San Antonio with Matt this year. It was a fantastic anniversary. We took tons of photos. I haven't posted any of them.
I really think I look absolutely horrible in them. We were gone for a few days around March 7-9ish. March 10, I came home and got my bloodwork results, and that was really a new low for me. By the 13th, I was already looking for somthing new that would help me lose weight. If you look at my old posts, I didn't think I had it in me to do anything further.
My first food log was on the 17th, and covered teh 16th as well.

It's been about 4 months, and I've lost over 20 lbs and kept it off. I had a bad month in June, but I finally managed to get back on track, and I'm losing again. I guess my anniversary photos are the last ones I took at that weight, so the dress I wore to dinner on our anniversary will end up being my marker for what I've lost. I took my first batch of comparison photos tonight. I haven't taken them any earlier, because I felt really lost in June. I'm seing numbers drop on the scale now, though, so I feel I'm back on track and making progress again.

So.. I know you guys are excited. Here are pics I've only shown a handful of people.. with added hackjob MS paint inserts of some pics I took before my shower tonight. (Gross hair is gross.) Sorry for the quality. I don't really have a lot of experience with camwhore myspace bathroom shots, so they're in my bedroom D:

In the before photos, I'm wearing control top tights and girdle. In the after shots, I am not wearing either. I tried putting the girdle on, but the dress fits almost like it's supposed to, and the back was so low that it exposed a few inches of the girdle. In the before photos, the top of the back of the dress lined up with the girdle due to blubber.


I feel you can see a lot more difference in the back shots, though


I suppose this means there will be another comp photo update sometime before thanksgiving. I hope I can get at least another 20 lbs, if not more by then. I may be able to swing 25 or 30 if I don't lapse for another entire month!

Unrelated: Ugh.. I think I may be developing an allergy to raspberries. I love raspberry flavored stuff, but I don't eat fresh ones that often. The past 3-4 times I've had more than 2-3 fresh OR frozen raspberries, I've had debilitating stomach pains that have lasted 30 min or longer. I don't get it.
Lately I've been catching episodes of "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant" so omg... stomach pains/cramps=mega paranoia now :P

    I kind of forget about Livejournal now. It feels so empty that I've joined a bunch of communities, but it's not really helping! Since November,…

    I've really enjoyed not having anything important to do for a while. I've been cleaning (a little bit), quilting (a lot, but in short bursts), and…
