Updated Photos

It's 1:30 AM(!) so I'm not going to take the time to write a whole post... but I just wanted to share that I updated the Photos page on my blog. I (clearly) had a lot of fun putting together collages! ;)

There is one photo that I didn't put on there, because strangers to my blog will have no idea what the significance is... but if you've been reading for a while, then you may know that Jerry and I have always taken photos with those public binoculars you see here and there (they are at the zoo, which is where we mostly see them).

Anyway, on one of our first dates, we went to the zoo, and I put my face up to the binoculars. Jerry jokingly looked through the other end. And ever since then, it became a photo op that we always do when we see those binoculars.

The original binoculars photo (I'm pretty sure I'm looking through the wrong end, haha)
Anyways, I was looking at all of our photos today when I was updating the page, and I had the idea to Photoshop myself looking into the binoculars at... myself.

The Photoshop job is terrible, but Photoshop is not my forte (actually, I don't even use Photoshop--I use Gimp, which is a free version of Photoshop). I just liked the idea of the photo! So I did my best. And I think it's pretty cool :)

Anyways, I really need to go to bed, even though I'm feeling wired; but, if you want to check out some updated comparison photos, you can see them on my Photos page. G'night!


  1. Hi Katie,
    My name is Marta and I am from Spain. I watched From Fat to Finish Line at Netflix. I really enjoyed the film and I congrat all of you for your achievings. I am trying to be healthy but I find difficult to motivate myself to exercise, but I will keep trying. The film gave me some motivation :). I like your blog, good job!

  2. You did a great job with Gimp, honestly, bravo!

  3. Congratulations! You look great! I think the victories you've made with your mental health (and your honesty in sharing them) are even more impressive. Way to go!

  4. I love before and after pictures but this is the BEST one I've ever seen! Great job!!

  5. What a great photo idea! I think you did great with the Photoshop!

  6. I love this before and after! How awesome!

  7. The old you gets a glimpse of what she started :) I love this picture!!!

  8. I think you did great by that pic! Awesome!

  9. Love the pic! And I wanted to tell you...
    I'm not sure how I found your blog. But I bookmarked it the day I found it and have loved reading through your posts and your open honest talk about mental health. Thanks to you I finally called a psychiatrist to get some help beyond what Zoloft prescribed by my OB can offer.

  10. I loved ALL the pics (well, duh! lol!), but oh my gosh, the ones of you with the boys at the zoo then and now just makes my heart melt!! <3 Loved seeing the difference in ALL of you!

  11. The idea of the before-after photo is great! Congratulations! :)

  12. Love all the photo updates, especially the one of you looking through the binoculars of yourself! Genius!

  13. Katie,
    Can I put a link to your website on WW Connect? I think it would be inspiring for some newbies to see! (Following your blog through my weightloss was a huge help!). Thank you!

    1. Of course! I'm honored that you think so highly of it :)
