Progress pictures

I just realized I have not posted any progress pictures on my blog in a while. If you don't follow me on Facebook, check out my Half a Julie page.  Here are pictures from the last couple of months.

If you are on a journey yourself, please take lots of pictures along the way.  The "before" pictures are not a painful reminder to me.  They are simply a part of my history.  Without the "before" the "after" does not have as much meaning.

Let's start with the current one. First picture is size 3XL shirt and 4XL stretchy jeans (because my 28s were too small). Second picture is Large shirt and size 12 skinny jeans.

 My husband has been on this journey with me too. This picture was taken on our 30th wedding anniversary in February.  The next picture was taken in November. We've each lost about 80 pounds in 2017--a total of 235 pounds.  What you can't see in the second picture is I am sitting on his knee--and he is not in pain!

My sister bought this (Large!) Minnie Mouse shirt to celebrate my 100 pounds lost. I found this shirt from our last trip to Disneyland (2011) where I was wearing a men's 3XL.

 This first picture was taken about 2 months before my brother got sick--my catalyst for change.
