Normally I would never, ever in a million years post a picture of myself in a bathing suit. Not for the entire world to see. It was bad enough to be wearing one in public to begin with. But I think it is somewhat important to post today.
This picture was taken in the second week of June, of this year. Just over six months ago. This was the fattest period of my life. In this picture I weighed 332lbs. I liked to pretend that if I acted like nothing was wrong, nobody would know.
This second picture was taken Christmas eve at aunt's house. I weighed 268lbs.
I am still fat. Still very fat, in fact. Still fat enough to be considered morbidly obese. I believe. If someone wants to look up my BMI, go for it. I'm 5 foot 8.
But I am getting there. I am pleased to say that my life is much healthier. In this picture, I was mixing up salad dressing in a bowl.
When I saw the picture, I actually said out loud, "wow I do look like I've lost weight".
I never take full-body pictures. I only see them when other people take them. I am usually too ashamed.
But maybe I don't have to be anymore.
My weight is going down everyday.
I am feeling better everyday.
Life is getting easier everyday.
For once, I am actually proud of myself.
** edit: I should also say that my good habits are rubbing off on Mike, too! He has lost 16lbs since that top picture was taken!
