I stumbled across a picture of me probably at my biggest. I can't be for sure, because I don't really know when I hit my highest number, I just know it was spring of last year. This picture was taken in March of 2010 at Disneyland.
The funny thing is that I have always liked this picture with the girls. And I really didn't think I was "that big" until I looked at it again today. I can sure tell a difference though!
And just to compare the two side by side...
I think there's a big difference, but maybe that's just me...
I am starting a weight loss challenge this next week with a dear friend, Sam Crowther. It will be running from July 25th through October 31st. The winner gets a LOT of moolah! (probably in the area of $600!) Jason and I are both going to join so hopefully we can win!! :)
It got me wondering though, the challenge is going to be based off % lost. So I wondered what my % lost to this point was. So I calculated it....22.16%!!
I was kinda surprised! That seems like SO MUCH! I remember watching "The Biggest Loser" and seeing some of those contestants never even hit that high. I had an "atta-girl" moment! :)
Which...if you are wondering, I kinda needed! Because vacation is still just as hard! I'm starting to wonder if I'm going to be able to come home with a weight loss....ugh. But I have to keep at it, and start fresh every day. I'm trying! I even went and bought fresh sugar snap peas yesterday to munch on. I just hope I'm doing enough to counteract my diet while I'm away! I know if I come home up it's going to be tough mentally...I don't even want to go there! No matter what the scale shows though, I have already decided to hold myself accountable and go weigh in at WW that first week. I am just PRAYING I'm still under my 10%! I REALLY want my award! :)
