As of a few days ago, I have officially lost 60 pounds.
I asked my mom to make a before and after picture for me like on The Biggest Loser. The after picture is actually at around 55lbs lost, but I looked thinner in the picture than I was at the time so I figure it all evens out.
The before picture was taken on Easter in 2008. About 6 months after that I started losing the weight. A year later I was 45lbs down. Then I paused and maintained for a few years. Then I yo-yo'd within a 5-8lb range for a about a year until I started taking dance classes. I re-lost five and lost another five. Then I yo-yo'd again, within another 5lb range, until last year when I did the dumb detox. Then, you guessed it, I've been yo-yoing again. But, I finally broke the barrier and reached my 60lb goal. Only 17 more to go to my pre-wedding weight!
I'd like to think I'm still a prime rib. Just a leaner one.
