I was always a skinny girl. My problem started when I began emotionally eating after my first miscarriage in Feb 2006. Now, after 3 more mc's, I realize I have to make changes. I post these to hold myself accountable to myself, my DH, and my fellow JM members that are struggling to lose weight as well. I am ashamed and so self-conscious.

This was me in Aug 2004 at 150 lbs and the best shape of my life.


This is me in Aug 2005 when I met my DH. I was 165 lbs and not too shabby.



This is me on my wedding day in May 2006. I was about 180-185 lbs. This was 3.5 months after my first mc, when my emotional eating started.





This is me today, at 226 lbs. I am 1 week into my new diet and exercise regime. My starting weight was 230 lbs.





I will post my measurements that my trainer took last week as soon as I see her again. I hope to lose 65 lbs by xmas 2009. I have lost 4 lbs this past week. I have no pictures from last week, but I feel a change already.



******updated 3-26-09******

weight today:220 lbs.
I was able to push it thru maybe 11 days of lvl 1 30ds before injuring myself at the gym. Since March 9th, I haven't made that much of an effort. I peed on a stick last night and got a BFN so I am restarting my 30ds today. I am seeing a difference, altho small, on my back and stomach. If I can get this thru 11 days, it is more of an incentive to push it for the full 30 days now and see where I can be.










5-18-09 weight: 210, but lost 3% body fat



5-21-09 starting to have an hourglass once again




Measurements 1/1/09:
neck-14.5 in
biceps-13.5in

weight (as of 2-13):230 lbs

measurements 5/3/09:

*HUGE HUGS* I admire you soooo much for posting those pictures!!! I have yet to break down my shame and post some...

You must be tall, because you carry your weight very well! I KNOW you can do this. I used to be an emotional eater myself...my serious weight gain came when we had a falling out with my family....things started to get better, and then we had a miscarriage. I can only imagine how tough it has been on you to have three babies in heaven and not here with you!!! *hugs* You CAN do this...you CAN break the emotional eating cycle. It took me a long time to...and it's still hard sometimes...but I know that you can do it! It's obvious that you have a great body shape...I don't think that it will be hard for you to lose the weight at all!! YOU CAN DO IT!!

Thank you for that. Brought tears to my eyes to have support from someone who doesn't even know me. It means a whole lot to me. Thank you.

It great that you posted you pics because you will want to see all of the progress that you're making. I can tell that you have a great natural body shape...plus such a pretty face! I gained at least 10 lbs after each miscarriage I've had so I totally understand where you are coming from.

man you've been thru a lot and it's no wonder why you've had an emotional and weight rollercoaster. U kinda remind me of myself with the weight starting around the 160's and then moving on up and up and up.

I know that if I have done it, you WILL do it too!

I'm so sorry for your loses.

We are here for you hun. When I first posted my pics I was soo embarassed.. i debated for days to post it.. then when i finally did.. i just put them in the private forum..but within days.. the ladies here made me feel welcomed, comfortable, and i got great support that I just tossed them in the public section. Now, i'm so glad I did that.. whenever i'm feeling like a total failure.. I have to pictures to look at and see how far i've come.

Keep up with what you are doing and you'll start seeing change. *many hugs*

It is extremely embarrassing for me to post these publicly, but then it would be even more embarrassing for me to look the same at the end of 30 DS because I didn't do anything about my weight. So in a way, this is the way to embarrass myself into getting this done. I feel a difference already, and honestly (whether it is true or not) I see myself differently in the mirror. It may only be a big change in my attitude towards myself, but I think it shows in the way I see myself in the mirror. The above pictures of me are disgusting, but the me I see now is more bearable. Maybe cuz I know I am doing something to change what I was. Thank you for your support. Everyone's support means more to me than I can express. Thank you guys for continuing to post and give me the support and the backbone.

I feel better since starting to work out, but I honestly didn't see that big a change until I took pictures. The pictures are making this all so real for me. I can't help but keep looking at them. I am still so surprised.
