This is what 55 Lbs looks like, in your face of course

Ok, so to cheer myself up after my little gain, I went through my photos. Can ya see the difference??? This totally calls for an " I can see it in your face" moment!! I went on a little shopping spree today too (hey, retail therapy cures all) and I still feel like I'm wearing my fat suit. I have such a terrible time gauging my size. I guess I could compare it to someone who's used to driving a S.U.V switching to a sedan. I find myself picking out items that are waayyyyyy too big. I am, of course, thrilled when the clothes fall off me, but I do miss the ease of shopping and just knowing what would fit.

Here is a picture of me in May 2007, and one of me from just last week end.

thats a great idea to look through old before/after pics when you feel chubalicious! It really puts that 2 lb gain into perspective! =)
