As someone pointed out on my last weigh-in entry, it is indeed time for a new progress picture. I don’t like posting pictures too frequently because it make me feel like I’m whoring for attention and comments when in reality I’m quite the wallflower. However, I know you people love this stuff and I did promise one every 20 pounds, so here it is:
I also made two overlays comparing my 372 pound self to my 222 pound self:
I’ve said this before, but I still think it’s hilarious that it looks like my arms are getting longer. The secret to my weight loss – hours spent in the taffy pulling machine. Yes, I’m actually 8 feet tall now, but boy do I look thin!
Someone else once asked me why I had my hair pulled back in all these photos when it looks better down. I do it so that the pictures look as consistent as possible. I hate it when people use before and after photos where the “before” photo is them dressed all slovenly with bad hair shot in a cave and the “after” photo is them all prettied up with make-up and good hair out in the sun. You could fake a 10 or 20 pound weight loss in one day just by using the right hair, lighting, and clothing. Since my hair length will inevitably change over the months, I pull my hair back so the photos look as similar as possible and you can focus on the changes in my weight and not what I was doing with my hair that month.
