I know you're probably all sick and tired of my WW posts (as this is the 3rd in a row). But I just came across a couple of pictures that demonstrate how far I've come. And while you may not need to see it, I do. This is more for me than it is for you. I need to see the progress I've made. I'm hoping that it will either encourage me to keep going or at the very least, allow me to give myself a break because I have kicked some weight loss ass and there is nothing wrong with how I look right now - even if it is still considered to be very overweight by most standards.

The difference is about 22lbs. I'm only 5"2' so the loss on my small frame shows up more. Particularly on my face. And clearly I've been out in the sun a little too - which always helps. If I'm ever lucky enough to be pregnant again, I think I might pop in to the tanning booth once in a while.
