My Before and After Weight Loss

Two years ago, I made the decision to alter what I eat. I started on Weight Watchers. Was I fat? Nope. But I wasn’t happy when I looked into the mirror, and no matter what anyone would tell me, I decided to do it for me. What flipped the switch for me was the next two pictures.

This was in Jamaica in June of 2010. I’m a little disgusted with the fact that I thought I looked good enough to post pictures of myself in a bathing suit on Facebook. 

This was taken at the beginning of football season in 2010. The rolls. Please keep in mind that I am showing you some of the worst pictures I could find, that I could bear to be on the Internet. 

I started Weight Watchers in the Fall and lost about 10 lbs before the holidays. I switched to My Fitness Pal app in early 2011, and that is what helped me lose the final weight.

This is around when I hit my original goal weight of 135.

I am one of those people who have a realistic goal and an unrealistic goal.

My original weight loss goal was 135, but I also had that unrealistic goal of 130.

My current weight stays around 128.

With losing the weight, I have a gained confidence in myself. Not based on how I look, but how I feel. I don’t avoid mirrors or the camera. I know that I can do anything that I set my mind to.

Do I look into the mirror and see perfection? No way. I see every flaw and everything that I want to tone or tighten. But I know that I am a work in progress.

Total, I lost about 25-30 lbs.

Does the running help? Of course. But I think making better food decisions and portion control was a game changer for me.
