Picture Time ~ Before & After Shots

I was thinking that it is about time that I share some of my success pictures with you all. You won't find these in our Jay and Danica Adventures site. I have included some before pictures below and then pictures along the way of my journey to a smaller, healthier, fitter me.

I am always a work in progress and in search of losing those final pounds, getting more toned and fit and all that. As I come across other pictures or am feeling successful in my efforts, I will share them with you. For now, you can see how far I've come to date.

Here is my starting point when I was at my heaviest (213 lbs)

This was me down 25 lbs (188 lbs) with The Husband & I swear the huge lookin' beer wasn't ours :D

And here are a few of me this last year (between 158-165 lbs):

And of course 3 of me with The Husband last year:

I'd have to say that I was the happiest with how I looked in the last 3-4 photos. My new goal is to get back to that happy, content place and of course, to get back to what I weighed. I haven't slipped to far back, but, enough that I notice and that is really what matters. One reason I started this blog is to show my journey to maintain what I've lost so far and continue down the scale. I will share more pictures as I go along.

  7. Ugh! You know I feel your pain. My heaviest was last year at 210. Manless, just moved to a new city = pathetic:-P Sarah and I have been tackling the treadmill since January and I'm finally at a pretty 165! Personal goal of 155 but according to bmi standards thats 25 for my height >:-I " So little goals come to those who eat fruits and veggies" will be my mantra! Best of luck!

  8. Lara ~ That is awesome - congrats on the loss! I know what you mean about the whole BMI thing - I wonder if my body was ever meant to fall in the bmi ranges. I like your mantra - I need to remember that!
