Before Pictures

Have you seen the TV show Biggest Loser?  It's a reality show where whoever loses the highest percentage of weight wins a ton of money.

Well, I have gotten together with a few of my friends and we are having our own "Biggest Loser" competition.  We are each putting in $5, then in 3 months, whoever has lost the highest percentage of weight wins all the money.  I'm excited to have the extra incentives!

We had our first weigh-in tonight, so I thought I would have my first weigh-in here as well.

Here are the measurements we took (as well as a few others I took myself):
  • weight: 181.5 lbs.
  • waist: 41 in.
  • hips: 46 in.
  • bust: 41 in.
  • high bust: 39 in.
  • neck: 14 in.
  • right arm: 14 in.
  • right thigh: 28 in.
  • right calf: 15 in.

Phew!  Probably way more than you ever wanted to know about me, huh?

These are my before pictures:



There are 2 things that I am specifically looking forward to fitting into again.  One is a dress that my mom made for me back when I was a senior in high school:

Unfortunately, I don't think the hanger does it justice.  When I wear it, it fits me really well and I think it looks pretty good.

The other thing I REALLY want to fit into again is my wedding ring.  When I was pregnant with my daughter, my hands swelled up and I couldn't wear my ring, so I wore it on a chain around my neck.  Well, it's still hanging on that chain (see my before picture).  This is how far I can fit it on:

Sheesh!  I think that ring has spent more time around my neck than it has around my finger.  But no more!  I am going to lose the weight!!!!

What's something you'd like to fit into again?
