Big changes - er... smaller changes!

Ok, the BIG change is my weight. I have now lost 70lbs in the past year. I honestly hadn't realized what a difference it made until I compared my starting picture with another one taken just the other evening, wearing the same sarong top in both. Oh. My. God. I just sat here at my computer with my jaw hanging on my knees, saying "Wow... oh wow....just... wow.." over and over. Here's my starting pic. It was taken in April of 2007. I honestly hadn't realized how incredibly HUGE I'd become until I saw this picture. Yes, I cried.

Here's how I'm looking today.

Quite the difference, eh? I'm still a very big girl. I had to take this pic with my webcam, rather than a full body shot, so you can't see that my mid-body still has a long way to go. But I'm almost 1/2 way to my weight loss goal, and seeing this progress pic really revs up my motivation!!!!
