It's backwards



Ali: after





Becca: before
(June '09)

Becca: after
(Feb. '10)

I thought words were not needed. I will give an explanation though. A few days ago I put on my facebook status that I was "Letting myself go."
I was expecting maybe an internal chuckle and an eye roll out of people. --That is usually the goal of my humor.
What I got?
Criticism of my low self-esteem.
Compliments telling me how awesome I look.
People being annoyed.
So here.
Here all of you "Becca you look awesome" people.
Take a look at these.
Me at the end of last deployment at 118 pounds (June 09) and me at my current weight 140.
Now I don't want any more of you to try to make me feel bad about feeling bad about myself --which I wasn't really doing, I understand the science behind carrying a baby.
But seriously, it is... sad. At least what it does to your body. And to prove my point you have to see these two pictures.

You have inspired me, I am going to go get back on the treadmill and walk some more. :)
All kidding aside Becca, just put those pants UNDER your belly and you will look and feel much better.
