Becoming the old me again

BEFORE December 25, 2009
AFTER March 8, 2010
Well I decided to blog about my recent weight loss. I HATE this picture of me taken at Christmas. I can't believe I had gotten so fat! I guess if I hadn't seen this picture though, I wouldn't have been so motivated to lose weight. Today I'm actually in jeans I wore 2 1/2 years ago. So in a couple months I've taken over 2 years of weight off my body. That feels good! I've lost 25 lbs and have 14 lbs more to lose to reach my goal of where I was 4 1/2 years ago.

So as I said in the title I'm becoming the old me again. Not just in the weight department either. I feel happy again, really really happy. I have more confidence, am more motivated, and don't mind being around people. I used to be so depressed, embarrassed of my body, I never wanted to leave the house. The change really started with adopting Cameron, and filling that void in my heart that I used to just fill with food. Now its filled with the joy Cameron brings to our lives. I have a new motivation to be healthy, raising a healthy boy!
Here's a picture taken a couple days ago of our happy little boy, laughing at us as we sing "Who let the dogs out, who? who? who?" Makes him laugh everytime, that and "Yakety yak, don't talk back." He's also taken to rolling on his side, but that's about as far as he gets. He gets to start eating solids in just a couple weeks, so we were testing out the highchair. He's just the best baby! We love him dearly! Truly the greatest blessing and miracle of our lives!

Way to go Jenny! You are looking marvelous and you sound so happy. I think the picture taken at Christmas is particularly unflattering of you and I never so you looking that heavy, but if it was the impetus for you to get healthy keep the picture around. I've gotta get that darling little Cam his booties!

Jenny you look so great!! I am so proud of you! And not because of the weight loss (though congrats on that for sure) but because you are YOU again. You've always been a wonderful, genuine, caring friend to everyone. I hated knowing you were so unhappy for awhile. You of all people deserve to be happy! I'm just so glad you are again. I love you and your beautiful blue eyed boy!
