Progress Pics

I didn't think about what it would mean to be writing a blog about weight loss when I started back on Atkins at the end of September in 2010, so I didn't really take pictures. In retrospect, that's pretty stupid. I'm sure part of the reason was how much I hated the way I looked. I sort of just plunged in and as it turned out while my weight loss was pretty good, my blog posts were almost nonexistent. On a day to day basis or even week to week there didn't seem to be much to report. Looking back now, I was learning a lot. But even that was pretty sporadic. But there are some pictures of me taken a few weeks before I started that month at picnic near Idaho City. And then I have some recent photos. I can tell the difference, but I'm not sure that it's that great in the photos especially since I'm not standing up, but I think it's worth a try. P.S. I've got the glucometer and will be trying that out officially starting next week. Thought I'd read through the instructions before plunging in. What a concept!

The above is a picture of me (I'm in the dark red shirt) about the second week of September of 2010. About 2 weeks later, I started back on Atkins.

This a picture of me taken the last weekend of April 2011 and I'm about 30 pounds down from September 2010.

This picture of me (in black blouse) was taken at the end of June 2012 and I'm 51 pounds down from September of 2012.  Maybe the difference is not all that apparent in the photos, but I'm wearing much smaller size clothing than I was back then. I'll have to find the clothing I was wearing in that first picture and put them on and have a picture made.

So next week starts the new experiment. Now where did I put those strips for the ketones????
