Before and… during (not AFTER just yet)

Several of you have asked to see some photos of my body-in-progress as I’m journeying along to my new self.

I haven’t been all that diligent about taking pictures of myself on a regular basis. I think I am so used to NOT wanting pictures of me that I have just completely forgotten to.

But last week, while I was at Mom’s, I knew I just HAD to have a picture…

You see, Mom found a dress that I last wore when I attended a friend’s wedding – ten years ago. I was just a few weeks pregnant with Big Girl at the time (although I didn’t know it yet) and I think that was the last time I was even remotely “skinny.”

So, just for fun, I tried on the dress last Saturday night. Imagine my surprise when it actually FIT!! WOW!

DSCN0006_edited-1Not the most flattering picture in terms of my hair/face (I was hot & tired) but I am so happy about the BODY part that I don’t really care. 🙂

This is the night before surgery:


And five months later:


I still have a ways to go, but it sure feels nice to see some progress.

  1. Oh Wow Lois! You look so pretty in that photo. The dress is lovely and I’m sure you were delighted to fit in it again (must be almost like having a brand new dress!). You may have been tired and hot, but your face looks very pretty in the photo and it’s obvious how much slimmer you are than 5 months ago.
    Great photo – well done on the weight-loss!


  2. Lois!! You look amazing! You have always been beautiful but WOW!! I am so proud of you. Keep up the great work! 🙂
