Okay - I'm having a hard time getting the white borders from around my scanned pics so bear with me. (Thanks for offering to help Diana - but I think it needed to be done while they were scanned (my scanner is the worst!) If you clikc on them - they will enlarge.
I cannot find many shots of me as a kid. My dad always took slides. So we've jumped from age 3 to age 17!
First one is me at the party after my senior prom.
The next is at age 20 - when I started dating my late husband.
Third is me at age 22. I was puppy sitting for my sister...helped myself to a Pina Colada while I was there!
Next is on my wedding day in 1981.
The retro pic wasn't really taken in the 60's! We hosted a 60's party and this was my get up. This was after I lost the baby weight from daughter number 2.
Following that is Easter - in the early 90's I believe. The pudge was starting to creep back on. (I remember being afraid to breathe in that dress!)
The next is in the late 90's. I had gained and lost about 25 pounds between those pics (notice the booty that always hung on!)
From then on it was all down hill. The next is a shot of me and my sisters on a Cruise in 2003. Oink.
The last is a shot from the Oprah website.
So you can see - I wasn't always heavy. (Though I thought I was at the time.) So in theory this shouldn't be difficult for me (with my prior history of yo-yo dieting.) BUT IT IS!!!!!
I presently weigh 75 more pounds than I did in that first pic!
