Before and Now

I was looking through old pictures last night while I was looking for a "before" weight loss picture. My Weight Watchers leader encouraged me to enter a contest they are having nationwide for the most successful and inspiring weight loss stories.

I honestly doubt I will win. I am not at my weight loss goal. Heck, I have 101.4 pounds to go. But, I thought it was worth a shot. Plus, this way I know what I need to do for next year's competition, right?

In typical Jessica fashion I have waited until the very last minute to get this mailed by the deadline (must be received by Monday). It will go out in the mail today, only after I stop at Walgreens this morning on my way out of town to pick up my before and after pictures and an envelope to mail it all in.

Anyway, I thought I would share my before and after pictures with you all. I know I have lost a good deal of weight, but I am still not pleased with my appearance in my after picture. It just doesn't seem dramatic enough. Oh well, next year it will be amazing. Right?

Here goes.

My before picture (taken in Sept. 08)

My after picture (taken yesterday...I'm a procrastinator remember?)

Ok, that was tough. I hate sharing pictures of myself. UGH!

You look great and should be totally proud of yourself! It's not the final picture of course, but it shows how hard you've been working-great job!
