Partially Nude Me...Ok...Not Even Close to Nude Me

Every once in awhile I will get an email asking me about my diet from last year, if it was successful, do I have any tips, etc...etc...

I was prompted by one of those emails to look up some photos of me last summer in July to compare with the ones Jeremiah and I took this weekend.

And Oh Boy oh boy oh boy. I can't believe I am about to post photos of myself in a bathing suit, but here goes nothing:

Last Year in July:


This Last Weekend:


More of Me Last Summer:


A Little Less Of Me This Summer:



And this is the reason I want to be AT LEAST 30 pounds lighter:


Hello!

Although I'm generally happy with my appearance, I'd like to lose approx. 30 more pounds by the holidays. So far I've lost 50 pounds and 80 pounds total sounds like a nice goal to me!

I'd also like to start a band. I think that my weight loss and getting over my horrible stage fright would do a lot for my self esteem issues.

Will you come to all of my shows?

You should be SO incredibly proud of yourself, you beautiful thing, you.

HOLY MOTHERFUCKING SHIT.

Remember when you were 28 pounds down and you thought you were "stuck", and so pissed about it?? 50 pounds, Erin!! 50 pounds!!

You look awesome. And also, you look like a tiny young thing. I'm really proud of you, and impressed, and jealous.

Nicole said...

Girl, you look fantastic. That weight loss is quite impressive. I tried to lose a mere 10 pounds and couldn't do it. Yeah, you should definitely be proud of yourself. Yay you!

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

If you lose it or not, you're still a hot mamma.

Erin said...

You are my hero.

Kristine said...

Dude, you have so much to be proud of, and you look amazing!
(But, um...? Let's lose those last 30 for you, and not a boy. They're cute and all, but you are worth it all by your lonesome.)

Mr. Condescending said...

Wow, fantastic job!

I remember when you first started losing weight and people were commenting talking smack about how you weren't doing it the right way. Well you showed them.

Jeremiah's lovin' your new bod I'm sure, but it's awesome that he still loved ya as much when you were 50lbs more.

Definitely a big difference between last year and this year.

I will check out your band. Can I get a free t-shirt?

Jules said...

Catherine said...

You were beautiful last summer but more beautiful this one since you are healthier. Fantastic job - enjoy!

otherworldlyone said...

You look FANTASTIC.

And I'd drive the whole 10 your trip just to see you play in a band.

diane said...

You, Missy, are very motivated. And motivating.

Petit fleur said...

Yay you!

I will definitely watch band vids if you post them... I can't afford the travel, but would love to be supportive.

Keep rockin,

Whiskeymarie said...

That is 20 kinds of awesome- you absolutely have earned the right to be proud of yourself!

Color me impressed.

Sam said...

You are the hottest thing since...hot things were invented.

Wow!

And I will totally come to your shows.

erin said...

Thank You So Very Much Everybody!

You're all so kind and sweet.

I really appreciate it.

Mwa said...

Woohoo! Well done you!

Amanda said...

You Look amazing! This is definitely something to be proud of.

Ally said...

You look amazing and must be so proud. It's so funny to read that you lost 50 - that's what I've lost as well and I just said today (I need to lose much more than you do) that I'd be so happy to drop another 30 just to say, "I lost 80" ... My real total goal is 100 and being halfway there has me wanting more, but feeling like it's such a struggle. Congrats on not only dropping the weight but keeping it off - that's the hardest part really - not returning to our old ways - though you have birthed several children, so you have a valid excuse. What's mine other than junk food and laziness?

LizzieK8 said...

Congrats on your wait loss. I've lost 100 lbs and life is much better!

jules said...

You look fantastic! And I adore the blue striped suit too! I'll come to your shows! You better start rehearsing because you are there!

Mook said...

Great job! You look great!
