Before & Now

This past Saturday I met Ken and Brian at the club for a ride around Lacamas Lake. Each loop is about 12 miles and I needed to do it a few times to get my mileage in for the weekend. We only ended up doing 2 loops, but it worked out because I did almost 40 the next day with Denise C (2 Bridge Loop with some meandering through Vancouver for coffee).

Rewind to about a month ago when I was going through some old photo boxes and trying to make the miscellaneous piles smaller. I came across a select few "before" photos that make me cringe to even keep around. But it's a good reminder of how far I have come. Fast forward back to Saturday, when Ken took a photo of me and my new bike. Here's a comparison.

Photo 1: Me, 2.5 years ago. Keep in mind that this is about 10 pounds lighter then when I was at my ultimate heaviest (I don't have ANY photos from then because I refused to let people take them).
