Recognize Me?

So first of all... the title of this post has meaning.  On Monday, I ran into one of our favorite high school teachers.  This is a teacher that we have kept in contact with and are now on a first name basis with.  And since we are both employees in the same district, I talk to this teacher on IM occasionally asking for help or ideas.  Anyway, when I called out this teacher's name, he had NO idea who I was and just stared at me.  I could not figure out why he was staring at me.  After awhile, I finally figured out that he did not recognize me.

But, I guess I wouldn't recognize me either if I didn't see myself everyday.

Currently, weight loss to date is -93 pounds!! :)  I'm SO close to being in the "normal" bmi range--you have NO idea how excited I am and how hard I have worked to get here!

And please note: this picture is not an accurate one showing the difference in my size.  We moved and our doors are different sizes.  The door I'm standing in front of today (red shirt) is is a double french folding door. It is MUCH more narrow than our front door at our old apartment.  Oh well, hopefully you get the idea.


And below are all of my "weigh-in" pictures... just so you can easily see the journey, if you want.
