I remember this day...it was my 46th birthday...I woke up, washed my hair, put make up on, and wore pink...even on my eyes, something I never do....but that day I decided to try pink eye shadow...( never again since )....Looking at these photo's at the time I remember hating how fat my face was....so round...fat...my weight showed itself here and the rest of my body....Having the baby on my lap helped me feel that I was hiding my body fat....my stomach.
I grew my hair while being over weight as I knew my short hairstyle would make my face even look fatter...The only time I had longish hair was during my fat days...as my weight came off so my hair got shorter and shorter...I was beginning to feel myself again.
The photo below really shocked me when I saw it the first time...
I remember being at my hubby's work function and him telling me that I had to stop losing weight as I was looking TERRIBLE!! He was standing at a distance from me and he was not liking what he was seeing. Of course my first reaction was to be upset...* How can he say I looked terrible, I was feeling so good about myself having lost so much weight *
When I saw the photo's taken that evening I saw what he meant...and I see it now looking at it.
I looked TERRIBLE. I do know and always tell others that lose weight that our body needs a good year to grow back into itself again....That photo was taken in June 2009 and the photo of me on the side bar was taken in June 2010....I had grown back into my face....So many people pass comments and say...* You have to stop losing weight as your face is looking terrible or too thin...* I want you not to listen to those * jealous * comments from others...know that once you have reached your goal weight the body sorts itself out ~ even the face!
Today I personal trained my neighbor for the last time before my trip home...
We both felt very sad as we love the two session a week...both have gotten so much out of it.
My neighbor started this journey with me weighing in at 69.9kgs ( 154 lbs ) and today she weighs 56.6kg's ( 124.8 lbs ) She has lost 13.3 kg's ( 29.3 lbs )
