Then vs. Now

Digging through a box of pictures, I came across one of me at my worst and could not believe it! I just didn't realize how far I had come!

This latest picture of me was taken in February. I've lost a bit more since then.

I literally cried and my husband couldn't understand why.

To be fair, I think that was a horribly unflattering picture of you at your high weight . Your losses look AWESOME!

OMG, what a difference! YES, "You've come a long way, baby!" And I understand exactly why you cried.

I'm really glad you posted this, because I think sometimes we're so busy looking forward to where we want to be, rather than looking back at how far we've come. My guess is that your tears were proud ones, of profound relief that you made the choices you did, complete w/all the work and commitment that takes. And some surprise at how much you've accomplished. Tears of happiness.

You done good. Really good.

You have REALLY transformed! Wow! I feel like the first picture isn't fair to you because you look so sad in that photo. But you look like a different, much happier person in the second photo. Congratulations!

I can understand. Both tears of sorrow for how you felt / went through back then
and tears of joy for how far you have come. A BIG CONGRATS to you.
