20 Things I Learned During My Weight Loss Journey Of Losing 96 Pounds

Did you ever see one of those before and after weight loss transformation pictures and think, “That doesn’t even look like the same person!” or “They purposely picked an unflattering ‘before’ photo”?

I have lost almost 100 pounds, and have kept it off for so long that there are people I know now who never knew me during the time in my life when I was heavy. One such friend saw an old picture up while visiting and said, “I still can’t believe it, you look so different, I’d almost think you had cosmetic surgery.” If she had a true understanding of my intense fear of needles (I passed out getting my ears pierced!) she’d know that absolutely wasn’t the case.

Another time, a house cleaner didn’t recognize me in my own wedding photo and, when I confirmed it was me she looked at her friend and said something in Portuguese that included the word “gorda.”  After three years of high school Spanish, I know the word ‘fat’ in Spanish when I hear it!

Which brings me to this point: You’ll be surprised how weight loss affects you. I mean, sure you think you’ll look better, and you will, but the way you feel, the manner in which you hold yourself and the amount of times you’ll flash a smile, all change too.
