I was 220 pounds when I married my soul mate in 2004:
I gained 65 pounds with my first pregnancy:
And just couldn't get it off! Especially after number 2:
I got depressed and gained some more:
In 2009 I was almost 300 pounds:
Then in the summer of 2009, my husband enlisted in the Army, shipped off to Basic Training, and changed our lives forever! I was determined to get it all off before he came home 9 months later!
I went from 286 pounds to 190!! I started in size 24 and when Ben got off that plane the following year, I was a size 9-10.
Now that I had my baby, I have my baby weight to get off now plus some more to get my goal... but I am not giving up!! You can join me on my journey every Friday, for my "Fat Butt Friday" Post.
