Horrified by my weight, I allowed very few pictures of myself to be taken.
You can get an idea of how bad it got by the size of my arms in this shot.
I am also wearing my wedding band on my pinkie because it no longer fit my ring finger.
Here's another picture taken around this time period:
Around April of last year after seeing good results from our 5K project, Hubby was pretty gung-ho about taking off weight. He researched and found the Fitbit.com site. It measures progress for those who join, aided by gadgets that count steps, calories burned, and miles covered. We both opted for the Zip device to measure our daily numbers. The site also issued challenges to walk 10,000 steps/5 miles a day. It tracked what we ate. It told us when we were over our calorie budgets for our weight-loss goals.
Bathing suit ready!
