Below you can find some pics showing my weight loss progression. I notice that the homemade jumpers make it more challenging to see the changes, but I think they’re still evident. On the far left is me at my highest weight, 240lbs. I am technically morbidly obese in that pic. On the far right is the most recent pic. At 190lbs I am still obese, but not morbidly so. At 175lbs (which is my next goal) I’ll simply be overweight and no longer obese.
The jumper on the right and in the center are made from a size 22 pattern. The one on the left is a size 16 version of the same pattern. On the left the size 22 jumper is too small and I am literally bursting at the seams. At the right the size 16 fits me well. This month (and probably next month too) I’m sewing new jumpers. I’ll try to get some pics up of them. I haven’t had to make new ones in a couple of years and it’s an absolute delight to have to use the smaller size. For a while there I was worried I would just keep getting fatter until I blew up like a balloon and exploded into outer space.
Weight loss is one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done, including child birth. I have a lot of respect for everyone trying to do so.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13
