I attribute most of my weight loss success to the support I received from the gals and guy (yes, that's GUY as in singular) over at The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans.
That being said, I did a lot of the work on my own and I deserve some credit too :P.
So does my husband, who is so wonderful that he will pretty much eat anything. That includes the boring healthy stuff we've been incorporating into our diet.
Or maybe it's because he's Italian.
This was me before I got heavy (I was a size 5):
This was me at my heaviest (close to 200 pounds and teetering between a size 14 and 16):
This is me now (size 10):
I'm not quite back to where I was before the weight gain, but I'm a hell of a lot happier right now than I was 6 months ago. I'm a work-in-progress :).
