No, these are not pregnancy pictures! I know a lot of people's pregnancy pictures look like this, but unfortunately, I look like this everyday. If you look closely, I am slightly smaller in July than I was in June, which is not what happens in pregnancy. I have been trying to lose weight for a while now. I didn't get pictures of me at my heaviest I've ever been (except pregnancy) which I hit in January. I lost 14 lbs between February and June. I finally decided to make big changes in what I eat to try to get big changes in what I look like and in my health. I have gotten smaller. Some of my pants are falling off and my measurements show some improvement (1" off my waist, 3.5" off my hips, and almost 1" off my neck). I have more energy now too. I haven't lost a ton of weight, since my decision to change my diet, only 9 lbs in a month, but I know I gained the weight slowly, so it makes sense that it will take a while to come off.
Addy wanted to pose too, so we have before and after pictures for her too. As you can see, 2 year olds don't change much in a month. :) (I can't get Addy's pictures to show up for me. I (or should I say Jordan) used html to put the pictures side by side and Addy's pictures are there when I'm editing, but don't show up when I post. I don't have time and can't pull Jordan away right now to fix it. Maybe I'll fix it later.)
