Before and After... So Far

So a few people have asked me to post some before and after pictures, which is kind of funny since I am not done losing weight. But since I have lost a significant amount of weight so far, I guess it's a valid request.

To be honest, it was kind of hard to even find a recent picture of me at my peak weight, and I'm not even sure if this is the best
one, but it's definitely embarrassing enough, so I'll stick with it. I never liked to have pictures taken of me back then. And since I have been losing weight on and off since last February, my before picture had to be a little old. This picture is from last Halloween. If you can't tell, I was Miss Peacock. This picture makes me sad because me and my friends dressed up together as the ladies from Clue and were so excited, and I got all dolled up for it. But a pretty face doesn't hide a fat body.

So here is my after picture. Taken almost a year after my before picture. I'm in my backyard with my roommate's puppies. You can really tell in the face! I know it's the same person, but I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I hardly recognize myself. I have a friend who lost a bunch of weight, and she told me she got rid of all of her "fat" pictures. I can't really see myself doing that. They are still
a record of my life, no matter how much I don't like how I look in them. We'll see though, because I really hate looking at some of those old pictures.

There's a second picture showing how stinking cute those puppies are.

So there they are. I still have more weight to lose, I haven't forgotten about that. When I'm done losing weight, we'll see how dramatic the before and after pictures are.


  1. Rosie you look so great! It is an inspiration!

  2. Well done Rosie! I have been taking photographs of myself each week after my weigh day and storing them away for when I'm ready to do the big 'before and after'. I'm in my 5th week of weight loss, and although I've lost 6kgs (abou 13lbs) I still feel too close to my 'start' pictures and a little vulnerable. Weird that huh! Tho I think in a few weeks I'll post it because I can see where the weight is coming off! I am definately going to keep my fat pictures, and you betcha I'll be showing EVERYONE them once I lose the next 50lbs! lol
