From Fat to Not-So-Fat

Instead of getting depressed looking at old fat pictures of myself, I’m getting happy. I really like looking at how far I’ve come! And I can’t be angry at people for not telling me how big I was; I owned mirrors! I was also good at not weighing myself, making faces in the mirror that made my jaw line pretend to exist, and sucking in like a Dyson anytime I thought I might see my reflection. Apparently I forgot to suck in when my dad took pictures which is what we see here.

The first one is about a year before I had The Bug. The second, I’m not stretching my face to create a jawline…it is just there! Woot! Ready for more??

Sucking in and trying to move my arms to make my boob fat less obvious...to no avail.

This is the same dress taken in 2 sizes, no bra on the day of the wedding.

What a difference a little weight lifting does! And now for a couple of my favorites taken by one of my besties:

Pure concentration. The dress now looks pretty flattering!

Never in my life have I allowed a picture to be kept of me at this angle. I've always had a gut or a double chin or something else nasty. But this one is awesome. This picture marks the first full body picture of myself that doesn't make me want to vomit.

Every bit of this journey was achieved by eating clean and exercising. I never took pills (except for vitamins), I tried fad diets for about 2 days at a time a couple times, but every big amount of progress I had was when I approached my goal from the slow-and-steady angle.

I have some awesome food pictures from last night to post, but for now, I must work out my guns.

Later taters,

Mrs. P

I do!

I am a 20 something focused on being a kickass mommy, fiance, cook, and worker-outer. I love everything about cooking (besides desserts, but I'm working on that), and I always try to make everything healthy. I live in Houston with my fiance PattyCakes, my son, The Bug, and my 2 puppies, Sir Reginald and Beaux. I absolutely love my family and would do anything for them. But I won't do that. I love crappy scary movies, disney movies, indie music, Hank III, classic rock, horribly childish jokes, naughty language, reading, Harry Potter, lifting weights, cooking, football, Nebraska, and being outdoors. I am getting married in May to the absolute love of my life. He is my greatest supporter in everything that I do, and my best friend and joke-provider. I lost a shit ton of weight a few years ago (193 down to 142 in 3 months) by eating healthy and doing P90X. I gained 25 pounds of that back, and am now working to get back down to a healthy weight using Weight Watchers and LiveFit. So far so good! So, read, enjoy, learn something, teach me something, and have fun!
