I’ve been thinking lately that I need a way to illustrate just exactly how much weight I’ve lost. I’ve seen on other blogs where people have listed out items that weigh the same as what they’ve lost, and I’ve also seen pictures of people carrying big bags of dog food or some other heavy object, and I thought, “you know, that really is not my style.” And, the one thing that I’ve heard from people over and over again is, “you lost a person!” So, I thought, “Cool, I’ll do a photo with a person that weighs as much as I’ve lost.”
Well, I’ve been following Mrs. Jennifer West on http://www.TheJenWestQuest.com – Jen has really set herself apart from other weight loss bloggers. She didn’t start her blog with an extreme amount of weight to lose (like I did), but she has been working really hard on reaching her goals. Her starting weight was 192 lbs on March 31st. As of her last weigh in, she is down to 179lbs. (Actually, she has a weigh in today, you’ll have to go check out her blog to find out what she’s down to.)
You might be asking, “what does Jennifer do to separate herself from the pack?” Well, to help hold herself accountable with her readers (and herself), every weigh-in she shoots her weigh-in pics in her bikini. (You know this caught my attention.) :)
Additionally, Jennifer recently started the Carb Lover’s Diet from Health Magazine. She’s been blogging about her adventures in that project, and hopefully we’ll see Jennifer and the other participants in Health Magazine closer to the end of the year.
So, I thought she’d be perfect to ask about taking this picture with me, and surprisingly, without hesitation, she agreed.
Thank you Jennifer, it was a pleasure meeting you!!!

My weight this morning was 464 lbs, a 6 lb loss from last week, and this brings my total loss from Feb 2009 to 168 lbs. (Killing it baby, KILLING IT!!!)
