50lbs and One year later!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. Promised my beloved T-20's a update on pictures

 

This time last year I was tipping the scales at around 210lbs. How did I ever let myself get this way? I woke up every morning disgusted with my appearance and how I felt about myself. Every morning I would say in my head, “I need to go on a diet”…well on Dec. 3rd, 2007…right after Thanksgiving, I snapped. I couldn’t deal with this life anymore. Having a suggestion from a friend to try Weight Watchers, I quickly went on the prowl to figure out how the program worked. $40.00 dollars later on a weight watchers kit and $108.00 on a gym membership, I knew my life was never going to be the same.

 

Here are some before pictures:

 

This is a picture of me at a social function at work. I was so embarrassed when a co-worker put these pictures up on Facebook and tagged me. Mortified, I untagged myself and vowed to never look at these pics. Well here world, here I am! I squeezed (obviously barely) into a Size 16 jeans.

Ahh, here I am in action. I still can’t believe someone took a picture of me like this (I should thank them)

This is a picture at my nephews baptismal. Once again, a very tight size 16 pants and a LX shirt. Beep, beep! I’m coming though!

I believe in pictures where you have no idea when someone is taking your pic..here is a pic of me in September 2008. Weight around 167lbs. You can see a difference in my body mass.

I pulled out the baptismal clothes for old time sake..

Clearly the shirt is now loose and the pants are basically falling off of me (sorry I guess you can’t tell that much in these pics, but trust me!) And a waist shot.

Here are pics of me last night. At weigh in this morning, I officially lost 50.8lbs in exactly one year.

Yes, those are size 11 skinny jeans and a medium shirt from Charlotte Russe. I am happy that now my chest sticks out more than my stomach!

Thanks for reading about my progress. I don’t even know where to start in saying that BCB has been my solid rock on this journey. I have made so many friends though this website and without the accountability and support I wouldn’t have lost this weight. I still have about 20-25lbs to go and I am determined to get there! I am a living testimony that if you put your mind to something, it WILL work!

Lissie,

 

What an inspirational story. You look great. Those 50 pounds were hiding an adorable cute person!!! I am so happy for you and congratulations!

 

How inspiring it was to read your story on December 3, 2008-exactly a year from when your journey began. I think everyone reading your post will be inspired and hopefully this time next year we will have a story of our own to share.

 

Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing your story.

Alysse,

You look amazing!!! Thank you so much for posting the pics, that takes guts all on its own, but you truly look amazing!! you are giving all of us the will and power to keep going. I totally hear where you are coming from about other taking your picture. Once week after i started Weight Watchers my cousin had taken a picture of me laying a a hammock with her kids i was 205 pounds and HUGE! I had no idea i looked like that, I mean how in the world did i ever let myself get that fat, it totally shocked me. Now i have that picture on my fridge at home everytime i go to open it i see that picture and i make healthy choices. Now i'm down 42 pounds and looking better everyday and feeling better about myself everyday. I just wanted to tell you that you are doing awesome keep it up and we all are soooo proud of you.
