Progress pictures

This is not like me at all to share photos (I usually weed any photos of me out of the pack before allowing them to be viewed!) But for once I can honestly say I am really proud of myself.

The first picture was my very heaviest taken Christmas 2004. I lost my Dad July 2004 and comfort ate myself to 24 stone 10 lb. I was due to be married in October the following year and the day after New Year I started Atkins then swtiched to Rosemary Conolly and lost 6 stone for my wedding day. I gradually put weight back on (especially as my marriage wasn't a happy one - we spilt 10 months later). By the time I started lighter life I had put 2 stone 9 lb back on. (2nd picture) The 3rd picture taken yesterday (sporting new haircut) shows me at 17 stone 7lb (a difference of 101lb from the start picture = 7 stone 3 lb difference)

I still have a way to go - aiming for 13 stone as my first goal and then see what I look like (never been that slim) then decide if I want to lose any more.

I just wanted to share these photos with you - sorry they are only head shots - will work on finding an old photo (that I didn't rip up) from my heaviest and do a comparison now.

I hope these photos prove that no matter how far you have to come - it can be done with some patience and great support (like you find on minimins)

Good luck all
