They are from 2011. I had at least a 79 inch hip and 65+ inch waist.
and March 2015:
Today, 5/10/15, I stand at a 41 inch waist and 54 inch hip. There's still a long ways to go but have come a long way too!
If you have had a lot of years carrying around lots of extra weight, don't give up. You can lose it if you just keep working at it. One little bit at a time adds up to a big amount. It took a while to put the weight on, it won't come off in a flash. With the potential for excess hanging skin and such, you don't want to take it off very fast, but instead give your body time to adjust, your skin time to adjust to no longer needing to stretch out.
The main point is don't give up! You will fluctuate, you will gain a little, lose a little, but keep going!
My personal goal is not to look like a runway model, but to be healthy, to have less flab hanging off the body, and to be able to climb the hills and maybe even run again without having someone or something chasing me to get me going.
What is your goal?
Keep up the good work!
Oh, by the way, that chili pepper apron is a size XL. It fits appropriately now, and there's even room to tie it in the back. In those pictures above, it barely tied into a small knot, definitely no room for a regular tie, and it sure didn't fit appropriately. It is still in my apron rotation. :)
