I didn’t really think 40 pounds meant much, until I compared these pics.
Sure, charcoal is loads more flattering than white, but the camera doesn’t tell much of a lie here. The pic on the left is in LA, March 2014. The one on the right is in Springfield, MO, December 2014. Yay. I was able to go down one jeans size, if not two. Damn you, junior fit. (Also, thank you for the best fitting jeans ever!! Torrid and Silvers FTW.)
Funny story about the LA trip – Holland from The Biggest Loser was casting for Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition and wanted to interview me. She remembered me from 2011’s casting for TBL. I needed a little R&R and Mom was able to come meet me. I didn’t get the show, but I did resign from my job when I got back from that trip. Thanks, Mom! That trip changed my life 🙂
