So my sister, Rachel, has been wanting me to take new pictures, but I didn't want to just because I don't feel like I look any different. Well I don't know how many of you have heard of Skype, but my sister and I use it all the time considering we don't live too close to each other. She lives in FL and I live in MD. Skype has the capability to do video chat as well, so thats what we do. Anyways this morning we were on skype and she said that I had looked like I lost more weight and that I looked really great!! She has to say that shes my sister! haha I love her though. Anyways so I denied her taking pictures of me right now, but then I got a text message from friend Angie who lives in CA and we went to nursing school together. She has been wanting me to send her a picture for the longest time and I always tell her no just because I am still at the point where I am a little camera shy still. But then I was like ok...I am going to do this! So I took my phone and went into the bathroom and shot some pictures of myself and sent them to her. Now keep in mind she hasn't seen me since November when I was in CA to take my boards. She was amazed at the progress I had made and was super excited. So then I talked to Rachel again on the phone (she was at school walking back to class) and I told her that I ended up taking pictures and she told me that I should share them all with you. So thats what I am going to do. Below you will find pictures that were taken as of this morning. Sorry they aren't too glamorous I took them after my work out this morning. You will also find another picture of when I was at one of my heaviest times that I had on my computer. I really didn't want to share this photo because I am almost embarrassed to say oh my gosh that person was me....but I want you all so be able to see it.
|Me...I have not weighed myself in a couple of days, but I wll have a number for you all on Friday when I weigh in...this was after my work out of a 2.2mile walk|
|I found this picture on my computer as well...that is me at about 279lbs at my graduation...|
|I am the one standing in the backround with the ponytail by the Flag...around 279lbs as well....|
I have been reading several posts that you all have written and I just have to say that you all are so inspirational and I love that I can come on here and have such a huge support system along side my family and friends!
I also want to give a special thanks to my sister who is my number one supporter. She is always encouraging me, even when I am having a bad day, I know that I can always talk to her for inspiring words! I love you Rach and I am so excited to see you in just 2 weeks!
