A Lot Can Happen In 3 Years

A Lot Can Happen In 3 Years

This morning, Facebook prompted me to share the picture on the left, but I couldn’t do that without reflecting on what’s happened, and just how much life can change in 3 years.

On the left was from May of 2014, the right was from February 2017.

In May of 2014,  I was wearing jeans with a waist size of 52, and weighing somewhere around 350 lbs. I could only shop at a Big & Tall store. there were days I was depressed about it, and some days I didn’t even think about it. “It was what it was.”

As I’m writing this, I fit into jeans with a waist size between 38 and 40 (depending on where it comes from). I fit comfortably into a 2X shirt, and haven’t shopped at a big & tall shop in months.

I’m amazed at the progress I’ve made, and grateful for all the support I’d had. I’m having one of those “surreal”  moments sitting here just realizing how far I’ve come.

I’ve felt myself get more confident in life, and have had more energy than I’ve ever had before. I know I’m heading in a good direction.

  1. You look amazing! So healthy! People like you are such a source of inspiration to me. I am two weeks post-op from RNY and am having a very difficult time, emotionally speaking. I feel like I’ve lost my best friend and have nowhere to turn. I see and talk to people like you and I pray I have this type of success. I want a healthy life. Energy. Confidence.

    I hope you’re as proud of yourself as I am of you!

    1. Hey Kimberly thanks so much! It definitely gets better, I can guarantee you of that. It’ll take some adjusting– try to find something to keep your mind off of food. It’ll definitely help out in the long run. All the best!
