What a Difference a Year Makes!

I am part of my local MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group. One year (plus one day, but who's counting) ago I took a picture of myself before our first meeting of the year. I liked how I had done my hair and wanted to remember what it looked like so that I could later replicate it. I was feeling pretty confident that day. (Why didn't anyone tell me that wasn't a good hair style?!)

Today I took my picture again, before our first MOPS meeting of the year. The hair is certainly different than it was last year, but there are other changes, too. I'm about 42 pounds lighter! What a difference a year makes!

I can't wait until next year!

**Just want to clarify a few hours after I wrote this post that the top picture was taken one year ago, but I've only been on WW and losing weight for the last 4 months! Oh man, to think about what my picture will look like and how I'll feel a year after I started WW (end of April)....Wow! I have no idea where I'll be in this journey, but I'm looking forward to it!

First off...I love your hair in both! I really do...I would not have said that wasn't good- I think they are both so cute!

Second....You are just awesome! What a great feeling it must be! I have always loved your saying at the top of your blog and this really shows how TRUE it is! I think it is so inspiring!

I have lost over 13 lbs now! It is just so exciting for me! We had a lady at our meeting Mon who met her goal after a long time working at it and had lost 122 lbs! Myself and half the place were all teary for her!

Keep up your hard work Annie- it is paying off!
