Hallowen: Then and Now

Halloween...... a time for dressing up..... a time for cold weather..... a time for candy and sugar......a time for weight loss progress! I am so thankful to be able to see changes throughout the years. I not only see my little boy getting bigger, but I get to see changes in myself as well.  

The picture above was Caleb's first Halloween and now. We have taken him to our church's Trunk or Treat every year, so we have plenty of comparison pictures.

Even compared to last year, I have come a long way! I can tell a lot more in my face this year. I've always had a round face and chubby cheeks, so seeing progress there is a big deal for me.

Probably one of the biggest comparisons of all time for me..... The red was pre-Caleb and the cowgirl is current. I'm still in shock to see the before pictures above. Lately I feel like I don't have any sort of tie or connection to that person from the past. It just feels so separated now.

I love that I am not that same person any more. I am so much happier and healthier in life! And it all started with this cute little boy. He inspired it all. I do what I do for him.

Last year, I struggled with my progress. I can remember being stalled out at the time and feeling frustrated. It feels like such an accomplishment to compare pictures a year apart knowing that I didn't give up and still see changes!

My life is one hundred percent changed. The weight loss has touched every aspect of my life and left nothing unaltered. I am so thankful that I took the steps to be where I am today. I am even more excited about what next year will bring!


  1. You look great! You can see the progress! That's awesome!! I'm on my own weight loss journey and I can't wait until I can look back at pictures and see how far I've come!

    1. Thank you, Savanna! Take plenty of progress pictures along the way. It's helpful to see not only the bigger picture, but the month to month progress too. Some months it feels like I'm not making any improvements, but the pictures keep me going even when my mind doesn't agree!
