My Weight Loss Progress

Memory Lane

So my grandparents are headed out of town and we decided to borrow their truck so we could take some more trips to the dump and goodwill. We have lots of yard work to do with spring arriving and it is always nice to have a way to haul stuff off. Yesterday we began in the attic and I found a box of pictures I had been looking for as well as Travis and I's album of our first 5 years together. What a trip down memory lane. For those of you that have only known me as fat; here is some proof that I once was skinny.

As I looked through the album what I was amazed to see is that almost all of my weight was gained in what seemed to be instantly. A lot between Oct 97-July 98, and lots more from 98-2000. However, then from 2000-2010 I about stayed the same. Below are some fun pics of Travis and I when we first got together as well as some of my senior pictures and a pic taken at my high school graduation.

Below, we are at Junior Prom. I still have this dress! It is hanging in my closet and I can't wait for the day that I can put it on and it still fit. Look how skinny my arms were? I have always had wider hips and thighs but am amazed at how small my arms, neck and waist were. Here is some motivation to stay on track. I don't care to ever be a size five again or to be as thin as I was the summer after high school (117). But I really hope I can make it to the 140s and wear a size 9 someday. That is my dream!

p.s. You better not be laughing at my hair or my bangs. It was totally cool, then! :)
