before and during...

well, this is embarrassing somehow, but here goes!

This was in november 2010. I don't think I was at my highest weight yet, maybe 205. I probably gained another ten pounds before I started losing. I was *very* good at avoiding having my pic taken. I had to sneak around online and steal this from SIL's photos, and there was a better one, where you could see *just*exactly*how*big*I*was* that, apparently, SIL was kind enough to get rid of. So here I am in my usual pose, trying to hide behind Mil0, my older.

And today, 153 pounds.

Btw, that's my insulin pod on my arm. When I was bigger it was easier to hide bc I was always in big baggy clothes.
