I just spent 30 minutes writing a post that disappeared into the ether. Not happy. But I am determined to post something today, so here I go again. Note to self: save as draft every three seconds.
I was asked if I had any before and after pictures today, and going through my blog, I realized that I have a lot of before and durings, but not a good before and after shot together. So, here goes.
The best way to compare is two similar shots, so here I am as a bridesmaid this fall and as a bridesmaid in The Bridesmaid Dress That Got Me Here this May.
Those two are a good before-and-after of the face. Here are a couple of body veiws. They’re not quite as different as I hoped they’d be, probably because A-line style dresses are more slimming in general. But if you could have seen me in the second dress a few months ago…holy moly. Beached whale is a euphemism for what I looked like then. I have lost six inches across the chest and nine in the hips since then.
I am still so shocked and grateful at how much my life has changed since February. I owe it to myself and everyone who helped me along the way to keep this journey going. But I’m not going to take the time now to discuss what I could be doing better. For just one moment, I am going to be truly proud of what I have accomplished.
