The first photo is what my hands looked like a year and a half ago. I was 257 lbs. It's been a slow and steady journey, but I am finally down to 205 lbs!
Most people notice the "obvious" loss of weight, in my face and body. Since I see myself in the mirror every day, it's not as noticeable to me. But today, I did notice a huge change....in my hands!
I guess that with as busy as my life has been, and the fact that I don't often do much in the way of hand care (aside from trimming my nails for work), I hadn't paid much attention to how much they had changed. Veins and tendons roll around just under my skin, the fatty layer no longer blankets them. It's so weird and fascinating!
The second image is a photo of how they look today. (Sorry it's blurry, my camera doesn't focus properly anymore.)
