My DH is a Closet Photographer

I just had to find something great to blog about for this week. I want to share with the world one of my darling husbands many He has never had a class, but I think he has amazing potential. Here are some samplings of portraits, action, landscape... it was hard to choose just these few (you should be able to click on the photos to enlarge them for better viewing):

I'm Proud of This But Still Tough to Post About

So I am coming fully outta the closet about my weight loss. I hit rock bottom due to massive comfort eating over the adoption and topped out at almost 300lbs last summer folks.

Pause for the shock effect.

I have made a comback in the last 6 months due to my own desire to be fit, my husband unfailing support (he truly is amazing and thought I was beautiful anyway)
and the combined effort of my success on the LA Weight Loss plan and my excercising with Zumba 3+ times per week I have gone from this....

to this

in 6 months.

I have lost 21.5 inches. 11 of them just since January! I feel great, my husband took me out and bought me a celebratory workout outfit that will stay up now! the others kept falling off my hips! I think i even look happier in some of these later photos.

Obviously I still have a ways to go but I want to celebrate anyway. Oh, and forgive the no makeup/glasses/etc in the after-it had been a long day. I have actually lost more inches even since these photos. My waist went from 42 to 36 inches, my hips from 53 to 44 and my bust from 51 to 46.

I just felt the need to share...maybe someone out there will see that this is possible and feel motivated to begin their own journey to a happier existence.

Not a Teen Anymore

Here is my problem...I keep trying to reach the finish line in this jalopy. What I need to make a pit stop and switch out for this car! Surely we can make it to the finish line faster now!

Woohoo, here's celebrating 20 months of waiting as of this coming Friday.
