Introduction and After Pictures

The first picture is the "before" picture. It was taken at a family wedding in October 2005, and quite frankly when I saw it, that was the moment I decided it was time for a significant life change. It's funny how the mind works - I actually thought that dress was kind of slimming when I tried it on, but the truth is the camera doesn't support the fibs your mind tells you.

The second picture is Mike and I ready to go to his class reunion August 5, 2006. We clean up pretty well I think. Mike is at goal weight here, and I am still working at it with about a 140 or so pound loss at this point.

The last picture is of Mike and I at a birthday party for our niece, Sarah on November 3, 2006. Total weight loss to date in this picture: Mike - 135.5 pounds lost (37.38% of loss from starting weight) , Jenny - 176 pounds lost (50.55% of loss from starting weight)

I found your blog reading other triathlete blogs, and I just wanted to say hello and congratulations.

I know you know this, but I'll say it anyway, you guys both look great, and I'm really impressed.

I too have gone from out of shape to into shape, and I know how hard it is and at the same time how rewarding it is.

Anyway, good luck on your continued fitness!

Did you know that you are an inspiration to people that you've never met? Well, you are. I have about 35 pounds to lose, wich is nothing in comparison to your weight loss. You have shown me that, with time and dedication, this can certainly be done. Thank You!
