Picture time!



I thought I'd throw some pictures up since I'm at home blogging. It was weird, I was looking through all my years of pictures and my weight throughout - particularly the skinny ones. Different parts of my body were different amounts of skinny. Like when I was a bridesmaid for my SIL, I think my arms and shoulders and back looked really lean and good, but I had chubby cheeks. Well frankly in lots of other ones where I was happy with my weight/size, I had the chub in the face. I think right now, I lost a lot of that double chin and puffy cheeks - but I don't like my belly right now where as before it was fine. Weird how our bodies change.



Anyway, here's a picture of me at my wedding. I think I was my skinniest ever maybe (since high school) this was 3 1/2 years ago. I totally wasn't even sucking in my belly! Then here's a couple from the halloween party last night. (I'll talk about that tomorrow) Anyways, I ended up going as a kitty. Kinda sexy. Much more comfortable than a ninja would have been (all the mask costumes may look awesome but suck for more than an hour, and then if you take it off, you're all red and sweaty and have bad hair.) I'm beside my live in SIL the toothfairy (it's hard to feel skinny with that living with you, though I'm starting to see her frame is just small and she's got hardly any muscle and probably equal fat as I do - well almost). My martha SIL as a hippie, and my preggers SIL as...I don't really know, a queen or just old fashioned lady. (this is where you all boost my ego and tell me how I totally look way better than all of them combined right? Remember these are INLAWS)




A picture of moi the sexy kitty (had to have claws in order for it not to be a total attempt at hotness, still is halloween, be a little scary)






Here's a picture from a few weeks ago at our birthday supper. The two of us always sit across from the other SILs, our bdays in march, theirs in sept. I really like my hair in this one.






This is another old one, 3.5 years ago, same time as wedding, at my college grad. And hubby. I just really like my collar bones and shoulders here. This picture was the first one where I realized I was getting skinny. At the time I wasn't really trying to lose weight (nothing serious at least, I always tried to eat healthy food etc). It was just exams, wedding planning, my grandma dying, and grad studies starting I think I was too busy.


Now the fat ones! Here's a picture that completely depressed me. Fall 2006. Granted there's nothing flattering about my expression, clothes or position but still. And those cords I'm wearing. I ripped them in around January (just a couple months after this). They were so tight to put on, I would grab the belt loops and jump and tug, and I ripped a hole right under the belt loop. That was a serious low point.



Here's me with my skinny sister (aka my best friend) in August 2006. I remember being really happy with how I looked at the time of this, so that might tell you about how I looked day to day. I did really like my outfit, so maybe I should try it on now. It's sad too because this was a homecoming for my small town. Almost the equivalent of a high school reunion, only it was for basically everyone I ever knew. Kind of the time when you'd want to look hot and great and awesome, and not like you gained 20 lbs. Oh well. I guess I just have to wait until my real high school reunion. At the same time, I don't like anybody from my home town and don't have a thing to do with them and already have acheived some major life things that I can be proud at that they haven't (married, house, great job, master's degree) but you guys know how it is.


And we'll finish off with my costume from last year. I was a man. Or else the John to hubby's Pimp. I just really liked the disguise costume. But I was wearing that button down shirt, and the button over the boob had popped open and was open all night. Thank god for a nice thick tie. So I guess. the moral is Yay me! Looking way better! However, I'd love these last 10 lbs to go away. I'm getting there.

Those are great pictures Randi! Is that jacket in the kitty picture from Lucy? It looks just like one that I have from there. You look great!
You look beautiful in your wedding picture and super thin but I thin your arms are way better now :). It is funny how our weight shifts and how we see ourselves so differently at the time of the actual picture and then just a few years later.

That is one of the most amazing wedding photos I have ever seen. Love the pics!

Tara said...

Great pictures!! You look awesome! Keep it up!

PS, I got a new driver's license pic on Friday and I can't believe the difference. When they send me the actual DL, I'll scan in the old one and the new one so we can compare the difference! It's so fun seeing the changes in pictures!

Colette said...

I really don't understand why you even hesitated to wear the sexy outfit for halloween! You need to work on that 'fat head' of yours and snap out of it! You're HOT!!! :)
