Before and After Pics

All right, here we go! About once a month my husband and I would take progress pictures after our class. We always made sure to wear the same thing every time. What I learned is that a month of weight loss doesn’t really show much of a change, but 4 months does. Also that straight-on shots aren’t flattering for anyone. ANYONE. So, without futher ado, here’s what a 44 pound difference looks like on me:

And here’s proof that the “Red Carpet Pose” exists for a reason:

Ahh, that’s refreshing after months of unflattering straight-on and side shots!

And my husband. Here’s what 52 pounds difference looks like on him:

So there’s the results in visual form. Worth 5 months of not eating? It was for me. Everything fits better and I’m happier in my own skin. My scars don’t hurt constantly from the strain and stress being put on them, and my joints are happier. I know my husband feels better in his skin and in his joints as well. I will post later about the pros and cons of the particular program we used (mostly cons).

WARNING, RANT AHEAD: For the record, I DESPISE the WordPress photo handling functionality. Jeez they make it hard to format with images! Grr. I just know it’s going to come out all wonky in the emails. If you receive this by email and the images are all misaligned, I urge you to click on the link to check it out on a web browser. There’s a slight possibility the alignment is better there. Not great, but slight. Stupid WordPress and their stupid RichText “helpfulness”. I swear to god LiveJournal does this shit tons better.

    This is awesome! Great job! My husband and I have both lost over 20 pounds, but we never thought of taking monthly pictures. I think we’ll start doing it; what a great way to see your physical changes!
