Okay, so I keep getting hounded about posting some pictures, but the truth is that I am really not used to letting anyone take my picture. In fact, I can probably count on one hand the number of snapshots that actually contain me, and none of those were with my consent (or at least I was grumpy about it). So I have a couple of before pictures from this past fall and then a couple that I shot last night (sans make-up and everything). They are only pics of my face because I couldn't get any of them to turn out right while using the mirror and it was just plain bizarre anyway. I don't know if my face looks thinner yet; if it does, I certainly cannot tell. But at least these first pics are a start. I am going to make an effort to take more pictures to document this journey, at least for my own benefit. I just hope it will start to come more naturally in time...(this feels really weird, I gotta say).
Weight loss between the before pics and now is 49 pounds (as of 3 days ago). :)
