My Body: One Year Ago

I have been scared to share some of these pictures.  But I am going to do it anyways!

These pictures were taken exactly one year ago today.  In my head, I still see myself this way.  But yet, I don't recognize myself in these pictures.  It is a hard one to explain, but I think anyone who has lost a lot of weight would probably understand.

So why am I sharing them?  I have been completely honest on my blog about my weight loss surgery and I know my honesty has helped a lot of other people.  I have a real curiosity about what a body goes through with tremendous weight loss and have scoured the internet for pictures to help me prepare for the changes I would go through. 

Tomorrow I will be posting up-to-date photos of myself so you will see the change one year has made.

Whew!  Here I go!

I hope that didn't scare you all off!  Tune back in tomorrow to see what a difference a year makes!

Yes, Kara, not only are you brave, but posting these photos displays a tremendous amount of self-confidence. It's true that what we look like on the outside and what we see in the mirror are often two very different things. These photos also reveal a lot of what's on the inside. Thank you so much for inspiring me and so many others. You rock, Girl!
