Weight Watchers before and after (in progress!) pictures

Apparently I'm on the blogging-every-90-days plan, lol. My Weight Watchers leader asked me for a before and after picture, after losing over 55 pounds in just under a year. These won't exactly be "after" pictures since I still have 42 more pounds to go until I hit my final goal at WW, so maybe it's more of a before and "in progress" set of pictures. Here is my before pic, from the Powlen family reunion in July 2009. (Thanks for making a cameo in my before pic, Aunt Sandra!) :)

and an even more distressing one, from that same week in July 2009:

Here is a pic from July 2010, almost a year to the day from the picture immediately above this.

and this one is from the July 2010 Powlen family reunion, the 2009 version of which is my first "before" picture.

Next Thursday will mark my one year anniversary of attending Weight Watchers, I have 42 pounds to go until I reach my final goal on WW but I have a few smaller goals before that: in 12 more pounds lost, I'll weigh what I claimed to weigh on my ID badge when I worked at HRS/DCF in the early 90's (in truth, I weighed more than I do now, but I wasn't putting that in black and white on my badge, lol!), in 30 more pounds lost I'll weight what I did when I got married...each of those will be huge achievements to me, but I'm hoping to hit my final goal (which is a few pounds less than I weighed when I graduated from high school) by this time next year.


  1. Wow! Look at you! YOU ARE ROCKING!!! :D Congratulations! I'm hovering around 30 pounds lost & am trying to put things back in high gear to drive the weight down further. Keep up all the awesome work!!!!!!! Right now, I weigh about 8 pounds less than when I got married. That feels good, but like you, I have more I want to lose. :)

  2. You look terrific Sherrie. I am so impressed. I'm sure you will meet your goal next year and I will be so jealous. I'm having a tough time just dropping 5 pounds!!

  3. You've served as such an inspiration to me. Congratulations on taking charge and committing to your improved health!

  4. You look like a girl of 20 again, just beautiful! You've found a way to have your cake and eat it too....all sensibly!

  5. You go girl, that is marvelous! And I know you can reach any goal you set for yourself!
