HUGE NSV for me
I was visting a friend with a new baby and she took a pic. Do I sit this way and turn my head that way so nothing shows badly on the pic? Arrrrgggghhhh. Well, I didn't sit any particular way or move my body all around because I had a precious 4 month old baby on my lap. I smiled and she took the pic.
I didn't hate the pic. Matter of fact I was like, oh my gosh, no double chin, no rolls of anything and the baby didn't look like a little speck on my formerly huge body. LOL I was good with the pic, I mean really good!!! I had tears in my eyes. I don't have many pics of myself because of how big I had become. Now I am looking forward to Christmas in NC with my family where I will encourage the picture taking. I'll be one of those idiots jumping into all the shots now!!
As far as my Christmas goal, I didn't quite make 100 pounds, but I'll totally take what I did lose!!
So Happy Holidays to everyone as we head into this very busy week before the big day, and everyone enjoy!!!
As you say, an absolutely enormous nsv.
Highest 290, Banded - 248 Lowest 139 (too thin!). Comfort zone 155-165.
Happily banded since May 2006. Regain of 28lbs 2013-14. ALL GONE!
But some has returned! Up to 175, argh! Off we go again,
I am excited for this one too...usually one to shun the camera or shudder when I see the pics, I am finally ready to be documented that I indeed was at the Christmas gatherings! ha ha
I know 100 is a nice round number, but 97 is pretty darn close and the century club is just around the corner for you. Hang in there!

Congrats on your success! You have done extremely well!!! almost 100 pounds in less than a year
It can take a long time for our minds to see our bodies the way that the rest of the world does ---- and being in pictures helps!!
Have a wonderful Christmas -- so much healthier than you were last year!
