Friend Makin' Monday: Before Photos

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section at: so we can all see your FMM questions and answers.  The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

FMM: Before Photos

  1. Are you on a weight-loss journey?  Have you lost weight in the past? Are you trying to lose it now?  Yep.  My heaviest weight was about 340 pounds, give or take, in 1999.  I lost a ton of weight, but crept up to around 220 pounds after I got married.  My goal now is to stay in the healthy range for my height.
  2. Do you like being in pictures, or do you shy away from the camera?  I used to loathe being in pictures.  Now, I don't mind it too much.
  3. Does looking at old photos of yourself motivate you?  Sometimes it motivates me to look at old pictures; sometimes it just makes me incredibly sad.  I wish I could go back and make the "old me" smile...
  4. Weight-loss bloggers, do you post progress pictures on your blog? I wouldn't consider myself a "weight-loss blogger" but I do post pictures of myself often.  This isn't necessarily about showing progress, but you can see the difference in many pictures.
  5. Will you share a before photo with us (even if you don’t have an after yet?)  Yep!  Here's a few...
Meredith College Fire & Water Dinner (April 1999) - I am on the back row, far left 
With my younger cousin in November 1999

College Mission Trip (March 2000) - I am second from the left (about 350 +/- pounds)


  1. Amazing! I am not on a weight loss journey, simply want to get in shape again and feel good! Great job!
