From 18 to 48

18to48

From my senior high school prom to my last trip to New Orleans, here I am! While I’d love to have part of my eighteen year old body, I’m a happy forty-eight year old today, much in part to my weight loss journey at Down the Scale!

Today, my senior high school prom date, J.,  sent me a photo from that night.  Wow, how have eighteen years passed by this quickly?  It’s always fun to see photos from the past, but this one was a good reminder my current success in my weight loss journey.  My face and body have been bigger at times during the thirty years in between photos, but I think I still can see my old self in my current photo.  Many of my pictures from, especially when I was in my thirties show a much heavier person…both in body and spirit.

While I wish I had the wrinkle free face and perkier breasts of the eighteen year old Jen, I am  happy with who I am now.  Sure, I’m always working to better myself, but I am  proud of where I’ve been and where I’m going.  Life is always changing and I am happy to change along with it, especially as I go Down the Scale…
