I had to double check to confirm that the 1st picture was in fact taken in 2013. The change is so drastic that even I couldn’t believe it’s only been a year. One freaking year.

It’s super weird to look back at my tagged photos or the rest of the photo albums on my Facebook because they’re filled with photos of the old version of myself. It’s a gold-mine of “befores” 😎

Alright, I’m hopping on the transformation Tuesday train because today is a big day for me! Left is when I was at my heaviest of 270+ pounds and size 20-22 jeans. Today I’m 175 pounds and wearing SIZE EIGHT JEANS! 8!! Aka single digits! I bought these back in April for $5 as goal jeans. I can’t even tell you how surprised I was when they snuggly slid right on.


For years I struggled with weight. It was so hard. A year ago I looked back and realized just how bad I got. I decided it’s enough. I had two options 1) do nothing and live regret or 2) start now and work to where I have always wanted to be. I’m still far from my goal but I worked my ass off to get where I am.
