Escape from Obesity

I just found the blog Escape from Obesity through Becklette's How the Beck blog and if you're looking for some really great before and after shots, I suggest you check it out too. I think the reason why I was instantly drawn into her blog is that I think her body (pre-weight loss) looks very similar to mine, right now, this very moment.

And yes, I know that I know what my body looks like 70 pounds lighter, as it did before I got pregnant, back in 2007, so it's not that I am totally in the dark as to what could be, but for some reason that pounds ago, seems like a stranger that I "kind of remember" but lost touch with. Seeing the loss in somebody else though, THAT speaks to me. Bizarre isn't it?

It's not with much gusto or even with any sort of certainness that I cheer "that will be me"! I'm cheering it meekly, with a bit of self doubt, but in all honesty, it will be. As always, not losing the weight is just not an option. It never has been and it never will be. It's just not an option.

I've been reading that blog since I started blogging! Lyn is so inspirational and is also so nice! I haven't blogged consistently about weight loss in so long, but she still stops by from time to time to check on me. So glad you found her blog!
