Where I want to be

If you read my weigh in post today, then you know that I am lacking motivation.  I need something to get me going again.  So, I thought I should find some old pics of me when I was skinny to remind me where I want to be and I where I know I can get.  The problem is that I didn't take too many pictures then.  I know,  I know, big shocker.  Although my good friend Aj took some, but I don't have them. : (

Now, at that time, I never thought I was even close to being skinny, but damn what I wouldn't give to be that way now.  Even though I didn't think I was skinny, I had confidence and loved wearing cute jeans and little tank tops or tube tops. I LOVE jeans!  I could buy them everyday and I don't mind spending $140 on good fitting jeans.  They make me feel great!  I have told myself that once I hit 14o lbs I can go out and buy some good, expensive jeans as a reward.  Actually, I still have 3 pairs of jeans that I used to wear ALL the time just sitting in the back of my closet waiting to be worn again.  I take them out and look at them every once in a while.  Man oh man they are really small.  I don't know how I ever fit in them.  I think my big toe finally fits in them.

Anyways, now that this went off topic with jeans, lets get back on track to pictures.  So Aj, if you have some full length pics of me that are good, will you send them to me? Please...

The biggest I have ever been was when I was 9 months pregnant with Kaylee.  I believe I got up to 235 lbs.  Here I am probably about 225ish.

And this is the only picture of more than just my shoulders and face of where I want to be again...about 135ish


  1. You will get there again, I'm sure of it! Summer is hard when you are home all day with nothing to think about except food! ugh. Soon enough work will start and you will get back into a routine!

  2. ok so i found some pictures. . . but do you remember how we took pictures then? not many full body shots, mostly in your face shots. i'll email you what i found.

    also, stephanie posted about wanting some book recommendations and i have a few i told her about. i also though maybe we could have a little bloggy book club. choose one to read together and give our feedback on it. what do you think? go check out my comment on her blog post for my suggestions and tell me what you think.
