Remember a couple of months ago when I sent you some before-and-after pictures via Facebook? You said you’d like to use those for the Kuri website if I was willing and I said I’d be delighted, but allow me to knock off a few more. I’ve lost about ten more (averaging about a pound a week). I’m ready to make good on my word if you’d still like to. If not, then I’d just like to share. 🙂
When I was in the Army, I weighed 147lbs and wore a size 4/6 jeans at one point. I know…I must have lead in my veins because it doesn’t seem right. I’ve always weighed more than I looked, but I don’t care so much about the numbers on the scale as where I feel comfortable. I believe that is somewhere around a jeans size 6 or 8, given my roughly 5’5″ stature and broad shoulders for a female.
You’ve seen some of these already along my journey, but I added one taken a couple of hours ago. 83.2 pounds gone! * Results may vary.

In the last picture on the left, my belly rested on the motorcycle gas tank. In the one on the right, I can look down and see the motorcycle seat between my tummy and the gas tank. That is a huge difference! I plan to lose about 25 more pounds to a goal weight of about 160lbs. 🙂 it hasn’t been a rapid journey, but it has been steady and well worth it! Slow and steady wins the race, in my case!
