This first pic is of me in January 2000. It is one of the rare photos I like of myself and was taken by my flatmate at the time when we were out having a few drinks one night. Fortunately he took it early in the night LOL
This one is taken about 12yrs ago at the restaurant in Centrepoint Tower in Sydney. The quality isn't great as I have taken photos of the pics in their frames at mums.
The funny thing is when each of these photos were taken I remember still thinking I was obese and ugly and having nil self confidence or self love. Now looking back I think that I didn't look too bad.
In the top photo I was 32 and single and had no kids. I was about size 12-14 and had no major stresses that couldn't be resolved with a night out. Who was to know that in 12mths time I was to have a major major breakdown that would chance my life as I knew it.
In the second photo I am around 28 or so and again living life to the fullest and burning the candle at both ends. I was about size 12-14 here I think too.
Before having Beren I was much the same as the first photo but ballooned during and after pregnancy. Time is up though and I am committing myself to lose a large amount of weight and to get fitter and healthier. Not for anyone else, but for me.
And then there is now. This pic was taken around August last year. Not the best quality as I took it in the mirror in the bathroom LOL I am size 18-20 and refuse to go up anymore!
