Getting my face back

Silly title, huh?
I'm serious though..I'm finally getting my face back! When I weighed 240 pounds I always felt bloated. I looked like all I ate was fried food and sodium {which I probably did!} My  face was always "puffy" and I broke out alllll the time even when it wasn't that time of the month. I also felt like I needed to pack on the makeup to feel pretty. Here's proof:
Really? How much makeup was I wearing?!
It is painful looking at that picture because I remember how it felt to look in the mirror and really be unhappy with how I looked. I even got to the point where I didn't want to smile showing my teeth because it made my face look wider. Isn't that just sad? I didn't want to smile because my face looked too big.
I remember when I lost my 1st ten pounds that's the first thing people would say.."Allie your face has gone down!" Down? Really, what does that even mean?!
Oh well, whatever it means I'm just glad to have my face back!

Before I cut my hair..

I'll be back tomorrow with my weigh in :o)

You look gorgeous in all these pictures. Seriously, I know exactly what you mean by getting your face back. I used to think it was my best feature and even that disappeared at my highest weight.
