This girl right here…well, that’s me. Well, that *used* to be me. I was at my uncle’s house with my chicklets having a good time in the pool. Notice that I am not wet…yeah, that’s because I did not want to take my shirt and shorts off. Why? Well, because I knew I was fat, and I was extremely uncomfortable in my own body. Even though I was with family, I was still so self-conscious about my body. I hated it. Funny thing – I still ate probably twice (or even three times) as much food that day as I should have. Go figure.
Next comes me in July. I was already losing weight, but I had not started blogging just yet. That came just a few days after this picture was taken, though. Here I am guessing I had lost a pound…maybe two.
The only thing I am loving about that picture is my really awesome lime green hair with purple and hot pink streaks. Honestly. Notice the slight double chin and the really “puffy” cheeks. I even appear to be developing neck fat rolls. Ick.
So, where am I now? Here:
Okay, so can you see any differences because I am struggling. So many people tell me my face looks *much* thinner, but I fail to recognize what in the world they see (or are they just being really nice?). I can see a *slight* change in maybe the size of those neck fat rolls…and maybe a little less of a double chin. What do you think? Can you tell the difference?
