:::Before and After:::
St. Patricks Day 2013 vs St. Patty's 2014.
I wasn't actually unhappy in the picture to the left. I was completely unaware of how large I had gotten and was actually having the time of my life. I was just a few short weeks away from starting paramedic school, which turned out to be one of the best experiences ever.
Same dress. Two different weddings. Don't you judge me. The left was a few days before my niece and nephew were born. On the day they arrived, my sister weighed in about 10lbs. lighter than me, pregnant with twins and full term. You may not be able to tell in the left picture, but it was a true awakening and something needed to change.
This picture actually makes us laugh now. A lot actually. That was me in my senior year of high school about a week away from graduation. There has been, and continues to be, a lot of trial and error in finding what works for me. I am incredibly happy with how far I've come.
1 year progress when I was finally ready to make the change.
