Some people have asked me how I started my weight loss. My first few months in the blog archive explain it all.

Before and After

My sister said before and after pictures are important. I believe that. I know that I love to have proof that the person was what they say. But it is really hard to publish my own. It is really close to my heart. I can remember all of the experiences and emotions that got me here.

Of course there is always the lovely side shot. That can be just as disturbing for us Apple bodies. This was a month before my bottom was shot.

I sometimes still look in the mirror and expect to see that. It always surprises me that I am different. Here I am after running my first 5K this past April. I took third.

Out in our yard last month. Look, my shirt is tucked in. I am wearing a BELT!!!

Hi Carrot & Caryn's sister (I'm in Caryn's stake). You look a lot like Caryn. :)

I'm so happy for you - I love your big happy smile in the 5K pic. Good for you! You're inspiring!
