I almost removed this page with my latest blog redesign. As a weight-loss maintainer, “before and after photos” mean less and less as time goes on. In the beginning you want the world to see what you used to look like compared with what you look like now. Then life keeps on trucking, years pass and you realize what you accomplished means so much more than a number on a scale or a side-by-side comparison shot.
That being said, it’s the thing most people are curious about. So I will keep this page for archive purposes. Plus, it’s still fun to look back and see how much I’ve changed over the years.
Original Before and After Side-by-Sides
Comparison 1 – Sitting
The picture on the left is me at a party in college, summer of 1999. I remember those pants very well — I loved them! They were my favorite baggy jeans, a size 14.
In comparison the picture on the right is me at a 4th of July BBQ in 2006. The thing I love about this picture is my arms. I was always conscious of them but no more!
Comparison 2 – Face
The left one was me at my heaviest (nothing to do with pregnancy). This was December 1999 when graduating with my master’s degree. The one on the right is May 2006.
Comparison 3 – Family
This is a nice family comparison. The picture on the left is us September 2005. The right is April 2006. That’s only 7 months! I was on a mission. :)
Comparison 4 – Body Shot
These pictures were taken exactly 1 year apart. Ever summer we vacation at the shore and on the last day we take a family picture. The one on the left is 2005 and the one on the right is 2006.
Comparison 5 – Face II
Look at my hair!! I kind of miss the buzz cut. :( UPDATE: I BUZZED IT AGAIN! :)
The left is December 1999. I was graduating with my bachelor’s. I think I was in the 170s. The right is me at a happy hour with friends January 2007.
Comparison 6 – Standing Shot
The left is me in graduate school fall of 2000. Right is me (not smiling for some reason) March 2007.
