I think I’ve witnessed a weight loss miracle…

…I weighed in on Friday, because of advice from Grandma who told me to face the music and get back on track (thanks Grandma!)

I truly was expecting the worst – a gain, the scale groaning under the added weight, maybe instead of numbers flashing, I’d read “Get off! GET OFFFFFFF! You’re killing me!!!!”

I had a 2.2 pound loss at my WI on Friday.  This is fabulous and terrible all at the same time; it’s fabulous because I reached another milestone – 20% of my starting body weight, GONE! *happy dance.*

It’s terrible because honestly, I had no business losing any weight after the week I had. I ate all of this:

Fishers popcorn, Thrashers french fries, homemade mint chocolate chip ice cream. PLUS saltwater taffy, Mexican food, McDonalds, Chik-Fil-A, pizza, cheese….all in copious amounts, with no tracking, and practically no exercise. I ran once. ONCE!

I was all geared up for a gain. I was kind of hoping for a gain. I figured with a gain, it would be the kick in the butt I needed to get back on track and stop eating all this junk.

However, I have been fairly OP since Wednesday. This weekend hasn’t been terrible, so perhaps I’m getting back on track. Slowly but surely…

Alright. I’ve caved. The lovely ladies over on the WW message boards told me I could use Picnik to do a comparison photo and I decided, what the heck.

So. Here it is. The photo on the left, (obv. the before photo) was taken in April 2009. I wasn’t weighing myself so I don’t know the weight exactly, but it was a lot.

The picture on the right is a “during” pic that I took a few weeks ago, probably about 40 pounds down. (I think I weighed more in the before pic than I did when I actually started WW).

All I can think of when I look at this photo is “Why on Earth did I not start WW earlier?”
