Everyone keeps asking me for a more before and after shots. Well, I call this my
before, before, after, and after shot!
This is me BEFORE I began my weight loss journey. (Dec 2007)
This is me BEFORE my run this morning. (Notice the nice new water bottle holder belt-thingy! - I just may be turning into a serious runner!)

And this is AFTER I finished 21.6km run....notice the smile! I DID IT!

I ran 1.4km to the Running Room, then joined my clinic group and we ran 18.8km, then I walked 1.4km home.
My race day is September 20th, I am getting excited!

And here is another AFTER shot, after my shower and freshen' up! Showing off my new hair colour! (It is a bit darker than I thought it would be - the box said Light brown! I wanted a change!!!!)

I had a follow up with my doctor last week
- my BMI went from 44.6 to 30.1!
- my fat mass went from 115 pounds to 49 pounds!
- too bad his little scale cannot measure how much higher my confidence, pride and desire to live an active, healthy lifestyle really is - cause, it is THROUGH THE ROOF!!!!!!

You are awesome. Such a great inspiration for anyone tackling a life change, and not just weight, anything!

Holy - you are so completely inspiring, those stats from your doctor are absolutely incredible. But I love how you say too bad it can't measure the truly important things.

Congratulations - you are amazing!

Melissa said...

You are a delight! I love the way you ended this post, with being unable to measure the positive things your hard work has done for you.

I love my water bottle holder thingy.

From someone who has done the same GREAT JOB!!

And totally jealous of how far you ran. I limped through 3 miles this weekend. Had one of those hard runs.
