Those of you who follow me on Facebook know I’ve been working on my weight loss since May of 2012 – well actually I’d tried for years without a whole lot of success until May of 2012. In the nearly a year since I started this, I’ve lost almost 90 pounds. But it’s better told with visuals.

June 2011

That’s me down front next to Nalini Singh on the right. At the time I weighed about 260 pounds. I worked out every day and I tried to eat healthy, but it wasn’t working.

May 2012

That’s me with fabulous reader Tara in May exactly four days before I started the new diet. I weighed 253 pounds.

August 2012

By August, three months into the new regimen, I was down almost 40 pounds – I think I was right around 38 pounds off.

November 2012

Six months on the Medifast program, eating six times a day, ever three hours and having given up my Starbuck’s addiction, I’m at seventy pounds down and I’ve dropped from a size 24 to a size 12.

February 2013

Here I am in February, just now a size 10 and down 80 pounds.

As of this morning, I am less than nine pounds from my goal, so the next photo I put up will be in May, one year from when I started the weight loss. Sometimes, it’s better to show than to tell. But what a difference a year makes! I feel better than I have in years, and I no longer have to use a CPAP – which was part of the goal when I started!
