I have Ted take progress photographs of me every twenty pounds down, and it's now been long enough that the difference is substantially noticeable. This morning we flipped the newest one up on our computer screen next to the oldest one we had. Both of us were silent. I sat there blinking in surprise, and just as I wondered why I wasn't crying I realized Ted was standing behind me doing just that. He's my heart, he cries for both of us.
So this is me, August 2013 in the upper 270's.
And this is me today, February 2014 in the lower 230's.
