Flashback Friday: My Summer before Weight Watchers

I am so excited to post my first Flashback Friday blog post. I got this great idea from my friend, Tia. If you want to know more about Flashback Friday, please check out her blog, The Adventures of Christopher and Tia. I hope to continue to post flashbacks on Fridays from now on.

I think that the most appropriate way to begin posting Flashback Friday blogs is to start with some pictures taken the summer before I joined Weight Watchers. All of these pictures were taken in July 2007, when I went home to attend two different weddings. The first week I was there, my brother got married and the second week I was a bridesmaid in another friend's wedding.


This picture was taken the first night I was back home. It is me and my college friend, Lisa. She and I have both lost weight since this picture was taken. I am so proud of her!


This picture was taken at my brother's rehearsal. It's me and my sisters. I can't believe how young we all look!



This is Jon and I hanging out before the second wedding. I almost used this picture for our Christmas card in 2007, because I only wanted people to see my face. I really did not want to send out a picture that showed just how much weight I had gained.


This picture is from the second wedding that Jon and I were in. I am the second from the left. Wow. I still cannot believe that I let my weight spiral so far out of control.


Visit Tia for more flashbacks.

I so remember the feeling of "I only want people to see my face". Sometimes I still feel that way. Like right now, 3 weeks after having my third baby, haha. Nobody look below my chin!!! haha. Maybe I should just post a picture of my post surgery stomach and get it overwith already.

Jen you've always been such a sweetheart. You were def one of my favorites back in high school. So glad to have you participating in Flashback Fridays, with us. Can't wait to see what you post next week. Loved this weeks post.

Love WW. Such an effective program that after 10 yrs I still revert to for simple balance.

Chelle said...

Is it weird that I don't really remember you being that big? Maybe it's just the extreme comparison between before and after. Anyway, I am happy that you are living healthier and taking care of yourself and your husband. =) Love you so much and I'm so proud of you!

Nice idea! I actually found a few old pictures of myself today as well, and have been wondering what I need to do with them. something motivational definitely.

Living a Changed Life said...

Tia - Thank you! You are so sweet. I have fond memories of you too. I can't wait to continue to post flashbacks! Thanks for the great idea.

Jersey Diva - I love WW too!

Chelle - People have said that to me before, that they didn't think I was that big. But I was! It's nice to be healthier. Love you!
