I did it!!!! Friday morning, I hopped on the scale and FINALLY hit my 100 lbs lost mark: 249 lbs! 100 lbs gone in 7 months and 11 days! Here's an AWFUL before pic I found of myself... Don't let the darkness of the background fool you, my butt really was that big!
I put together a few before and after pics to see the difference and thought I'd share them with you here:
At 349 lbs I wore a size 26/28 and now wear a size 18. I decided to be silly and see if I could fit both legs into one of my old pairs of jeans:
I asked one of my friends to take some after pics of me (she is a professional photographer and took the before picture below too). I went on a lil shopping trip and tried on a bunch of dresses until I found my idea of my perfect "after" dress. We took the pics... and then had some pizza (I can't always behave)!
This morning, I met Lindsay, Amy and Michelle for my very first double digit run: 10 miles!! I was dreading it because I was up all night with some stomach issues (TMI). I took some meds and off I went. My stomach was not happy, but I made it! We ran all the way to another city on the bike path (we planned beforehand to have one of our cars there waiting to take us back). I thought I had food poisoning, but as the day goes on, I'm pretty sure it's a stomach bug. It better be gone by race day next Sunday!
