Monday, April 20, 2009

to the left i am 306 lbs.maybe more not sure.in this new picture i am 276 lbs. i know i
still have a long journey ahead of me,but i just couldnt tell in my face when i looked in the mirror.then when i compared my pictures....well i was/am very happy! but most of all i am pleased with myself.and i cant remember the last time i could say that.just feeling comfortable in my own skin has always been an issue for me.so as i keep pushing forward,i think to myself everyday,i just want to feel better.im ready to think im pretty,i dont know how long it will take for me to think im pretty,but i cant wait! for right now i am happy with my results. i am not the same person i once was.and i will never be that person again!! its like im becoming this new person.someone whom im discovering for the first time.someone who has been buried underneath for all these years.thank u my spark family for ur support.i love u,best wishes.god bless.

    Losing 30 lbs feels awesome huh! Good for you! It's great start to even more! The more you lose, the more you want to.

    It really shows too! emoticon It's great that your feeling better too - a definite bonus!

    I wish I'd thought of taking pictures... DUH! I'm so camera shy I only have one of me at 250 lbs, but I got up to 268 lbs. I just hated the way I looked so much I even avoided mirrors for a long time. Now I dropped 48 lbs since new years, I guess I better get a picture of it. I still hate having pictures taken of this mess! LOL!

    Awesome job~ you look great!
    One weird place to notice weight loss is a person's neck... you should measure it now and then compare later on down the road- it's amazing! I would have never thought it mattered, but wow, in my case my neck was one of the main places I lost weight!

    You can definately see the loss. Your face has more definition. Way to go on 30 lbs down. That is definately something to be pround of.

    Thinking you are pretty should not be based solely on what you see in the mirror - people can be beautiful without being nice to look at and that is even more important. Just think of how many people you see that are "good looking" but as soon as they open their mouths, you realize what a truly ugly person they really are!! You look great and are doing, obviously, a fantastic job! Keep it up!!

    Look at you Christina! With just 30 pounds of the old you gone, you can see a huge difference. You can really notice a difference in your cheeks and your chin! Way to go!!

    Christina, actually you look pretty in both shots...losing thirty pounds really defined your fine bone structure. I luv it...I think I will take a before and after shot of myself, because I am also thirty pounds lighter and I want to see if I can see a difference side by side. You are doing wonderful...
