Friend gave me this pic from April 2011

So my friend says........
I want you to see what you looked like at this very same time last year and how far you have come! Then she hands me this........WOW! Could not believe it!!! It made me realize that I never want to feel that uncomfortable again! Low carb does melt away the stomach-I firmly believe that! Hope this keeps you inspired! I know that I am making a million copies and posting them all over my house--LOL

Thanks for the kind words! I feel like that same person! It is a shame but when you spend most of your life obese, your self esteem suffers. I am very confident when it comes to my profession but that is about it. I am working on feeling confident with the "new" me but I am the same person on the inside. I have posture issues to this day because I have spent more days ashamed than proud. I guess you could say I am "work in progress"-physical and mental!

That is an inspiring pic! I'll bet that made your day and then some. I'm so happy for you and this boost your friend gifted you, she's a keeper! You were very pretty then and are very pretty now. Finding our inner beauty is somehow harder. Yours is shining through loud and clear!
Keep it up girl!
