Anyway, back to the subject at hand:
A long time ago (June 6, 2012, to be exact), I took a picture of myself in an outfit I wear often to walk in. It occurred to me sometime later that it might be fun to continue to take pics of myself in the same outfit over time, for comparison purposes. So I've been taking this picture ever since, randomly when I happen to be wearing the same clothes. Yes, the same clothes. Oddly, they aren't falling off me yet, which would be kind of cool, but suffice it to say they are snug and/or made of magical stretchy things. Or something.
On February 28, 2013, I happened to be wearing that outfit again, so I took the pic. And for the first time, I compared it to the original. I'd been avoiding comparing them - I see them periodically when I scroll through the pics in my phone's photo album, but I really haven't looked closely at them. It's possible I feared there wouldn't be a noticeable difference, if I'm being honest.
Anyway, if this makes you spontaneously burst into "Baby Got Back," don't feel bad -- I did, too :)
|June 6, 234 lbs vs. Feb 28, 187 lbs.|
Yes, I will post the whole series when I am closer to my goal weight, but for now, this is the wallpaper on my phone because I find it frickin inspiring!
And for some other non-milestone milestones, I have this to share with you:
- Size 7 underwear is visibly, noticeably smaller than size 9 underwear. Trust me on this.
- I finally had to take my wedding ring in to be sized down, because it was about to fall off me. So yeah, that happened.
