After we tried (and failed) to build a snowman, we came in for some hot chocolate. Funny how that makes everything better!
Enjoy the snow...and the hot chocolate!
Hi and welcome! Let me introduce myself: I'm Marcie B., from TN and I'm 35 years old. I'll get into more of my story in my blogs but for now: I'm glad you're here to share my journey!
And here is a picture I asked Halen to take of me two days ago, Oct 7th, 2010.
So it bears repeating: what a difference a year makes!
Also, just for fun I thought I'd post pictures of me from this past week. We had Homecoming week at LHS and I dressed up for our spirit days. Here I am on Favorite Team Day:
Since next month is going to mark 1 year since surgery, I'm asking a photographer friend to take some "real" pictures of me. I can't wait to get them made and show them to y'all!
A couple of months after the school year started that fall (2001), I went to LA Weight Loss and signed up for thier year-long program. I did a great job on LAWL, losing 100 lbs in 41 weeks. I weighed 181 and I felt wonderful! I was only 25 lbs away from my goal of 158.
I can't believe it's actually happened. Better yet, I'm not finished losing weight so what I thought was my ultimate goal has become another stepping stone. When I am finished, I will weigh between 130 and 140 lbs. My smallest ever!
And now for something really cool. We took these pictures of me in my best black dress just a couple of months after surgery. Now that I have a new black dress (and since Halen wanted me to use that for my picture this month), I did a side-by-side comparison. It will blow you away!
