Happy Wednesday!!!!

That may be a little over-enthusiastic of a greeting, but I have been working out ALOT lately and I am on a non- stop endorphine high which makes me one happy, easy to get along with girl!

I've seen quite of few of my favs posting some before and after pictures and thought to myself, I havenot really EVER done that. I don't know exactly why, but partly I think its because for me its very hard to admit where I was and also its because at my highest weight I did not leave my house for much and I certaintly was not not going to allow anyone to take a picture of the sad state I had found myself in.
But now I am over that, now those before picctures are just a sign of how hard I have worked and the progress I have made so here it goes:  The one on the left is from my trip to Egypt in March 2008, I think I weighed around 260 here, I actually managed to lose 35-40 pounds and then gain 60 back by June the next year as I was 285 when I started my lap band journey, but I honestly cannot find any pictures of me from then so this will have to do. And of course the one on the right is me today!









                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Ahh it is such an amazing feeling to know that I am not there anymore I weight around 75 pounds less than that girl and have lost around 95!! Wow - thank you lap band, I KNOW I would not be where I am right now if it wasnt for that decision.





Ohh and here are some more pictures of me from today, I was feeling a bit vain so I had a little photo shoot cha know. Also if you didn't notice, I cut my hair :) .

Great Scott! What a friggin' hottie! I mean, you were always gorgeous but this new confidence makes you stunning! Fantastic job! *Maria*

I think you were really pretty in a romantic, gentle kind of way in your "befores".

But in your after's you remind me of that reheaded hottie from True Blood (Carrie Preston ?). Just super hot but also classically beautiful with a little hint of tigress in the eyes. In other words: GORGEOUS!!!

The best part is the way you carry yourself: like you feel you deserve your spot in the world.

You do.

And I'm glad you're claiming it ;-)

One more thing: I am an eyebrow girl. I love beautifully shaped, strong eyebrows.

You have amazing brows.
