80 lb. Goal Progress Picture and Reward

First of all, hubby and I made a trip to Best Buy to pick up this:

80lbgoal 015

If you don’t already know, this is my 80 lbs. lost goal reward. I also picked up the Jillian DVD.

We did a little bit of shopping today. I found some cute clothes, that I was desperately in need of! One of the things was this outfit- that I LOVE. It’s a little loose fitting so it might not do the best at showing how much I’ve lost, but I NEVER would have worn a dress before, I am just starting to feel comfortable enough to wear them. But first, I want to show you where I’ve come from- because I have never posted a picture of what I used to look like. I didn’t take pictures or measurements when I first started this journey, and now I wish I had. So I found a picture that had to be before I started dieting. And it pains me to look at these pictures:

And here is me today:

80lbgoal 008

I still have a long way to go- but I feel a million times better already. It just makes me want to dance, and this dress is one of those twirly ones. Winking smile

It feels good to lose weight. To become a better version of myself. To feel happy. Smile

  1. That is awesome! You're doing amazing and days like today just really make it all worth it, don't they? The dress is adorable :) How many sizes have you gone down with all this weight (if you don't mind me asking of course!)

  2. @Susan- I wore a size 24 Women's Plus size when I first stated. The dress in the picture is a size XL in the regular misses department, I'm not sure what size that would be in numbers, maybe an 18? :)
