Total side note.....I'm not able to post comments to anyone. Well, it's let me do a few. I'm not ignoring you, blogger just hates me.
So, long story short; mom brought home pictures from Nebraska. Her and her brothers and sisters were splitting Grandma's photo albums. Yesterday I saw some pictures that I haven't seen in a while taken from 5 or more years ago.
Some of the pictures are from when we were kids, when my mom was a kid, when my mom and dad were younger with no kids, etc, etc.
Then I see one picture that nearly made me vomit; me from December 2006. At first I put it aside really fast, then I picked it up again and just stared at it. I was huge. Ok, huge is an understatement.
It made me realize that I had lost a little weight before I really started trying to lose weight almost 2 years ago. I know what I weighed in January of 2010 because I was forced onto a scale. I don't know what I weighed in December of 2006 because there was no way I was getting on a scale. I can just look at that picture thouhg and I know I weighed more in 2006 than I did in the beginning of 2010.
I almost drove over to show Janelle and Zach at that exact moment. I did drive to Kelly's to show her. The picture is of my grandma and I sitting on a love seat. I look like I can barely sit on the damn thing. I think that's what I yelled at Kelly and her husband too. I think I said, "Look at this shit. I can barely sit on that effing couch. How disgusting." Her husband was cracking up.
Then I took a picture of the picture with my phone and sent it to Janelle. Her and Zach looked at it and were in shock as well. Zach said I could use the sweater I'm wearing as a blanket now. I totally agree.
I will post the picture, because it is a good comparison photo. I just have to scan it and work up the nerve to post it. It is shocking! To me, it is more dramatic than any other picture I have posted. I just have to come to terms with the photo. The only way it could have possibly been worse was if I was sitting at the table eating!
Anyway, bod pod tomorrow. I'm excited. I'm always excited for bod pods. I'll post the results tomorrow or Wednesday.
