These pictures are still sprinkled throughout my blog. To make it easier to see the transition, I thought I would gather them all onto one page. There are lots of them here and they take a long time to load if you are on dialup. Be patient. Go make a smoothie. Eat some bananas or go to the market for some mangos. When you come back, you may be able to see them. Note: I call it “Before and During” because I’m not dead yet. If a picture is underlined, it’s “clickable”. If you click on it, it will open up full size.
One other note: I don’t have makeup on in any of the “During” pictures. The color (or lack of it) is all mine. Except on Halloween–I drew the whiskers and nose with an eyebrow pencil. The only thing I put on my face after my shower is cold-pressed coconut oil.
This is the one picture that isn’t anywhere else in my blog. I’m posting it to prove that I was once a slim person, pre-hypothyroidism. It wasn’t more than a year or so after this that I started gaining weight. I was probably at about 122 in this picture taken at the Christmas party in December, 1997. The man on the right is the then administrator and he’s presenting me with my 10 year service award. The Human Resources Coordinator found this picture in my file.
And then…a mere three and a half years later:
My 30 month anniversary plus one day. Those are my size 6 Levis and a small top. Just so you know.
