Sneak Peek Before and After

Hey hey!
I'm just on my way to bed, but wanted to share a before and after with you.


I had my 'official' after (I still call them during) pictures taken today, and I can't wait to see how they turned out.

Girls - I feel like a winner.
I'm not sure I have a chance at the $10,000 - but the feeling I have right now is worth more than that!

Here's a full disclosure before picture.

I can't even talk about it right now -
but I will soon


Four months and one week later....


Now, I've still got some junk in my trunk - and my goal is to lose another 45 lbs - and I will be what my "BMI" deems a healthy weight.  Trust me - I've got it to lose.
And yes, I'm wearing the bombshell bra!

This is more me though -


Thank you a MILLION times over for all of your funny, kind, encouraging, motivating comments!
I'm woefully behind in emailing - but I will get to them...

I must get to bed!
I swell when I stay up!

  3. The Urban Dictionary says:
    va va voom-
    The feeling you get when you're filled with inspiration or full of excitement and energy... that best describes your four and half month journey! It's been excitement and and inspiration for us too- hard work but so worth it Jayme! You look younger and I imagine feel younger too. Being healthy is key, but it don't hurt to look like a million dollars too!

  24. I know its all about how you feel on the inside that reflects outward. You have a bombshell pretty face and personality, it's what draws folks to you.....the rest....its superficial. I have seen many a slender person but not likable at all.

    Now with that being said, MERCY SAKES!! Hot Dang GIRL, you have transformed that body and your whole total figure... you are such an inspiration to all who are struggling. YOU GO GIRL!! What does hubby say about it? I know you are proud of yourself and so are we for your accomplishments.

    I will say a prayer to pray you will win the money.

    Keep on rockin!

  30. Yesterday at the flea an oldish man said to another oldish man, "Jerry, are you losing weight?" Jerry says back, "Well, I've lost 50 pounds!' Man 1 responds, "I thought you're looking more fleet of foot these days!"

    Hence my comment to you last night. Law, I love old-people speak.

    And you truly are looking FOF. And Bombshellish.

  31. PS - Calvin just said, "Wait, is that the Coop Keeper?>?" then Ruby threw down her Barbie and ran over for a look. The Silas looked and said "Jayme! Jayme!" Then Calvin said, "Ha! She's holding a chicken!"

  43. Holy macaroni!!!! Jayme, you are rockin, gorgeous, sexy, and most of all so beautiful on the inside. I just want to express my heartfelt appreciation for your honesty, integrity, openness, and vulnerability at sharing your feelings and emotions about your weight. It's an emotional subject for many and it's a risk putting yourself out there, but the world needs people like you. You are what makes the world go round in a good way. I just hope someday I get to meet you.

    PS. How's Glenco's heart holding out with your new transformation and the new accommodations for the girls?

    Way to go Jayme.

  63. Hi Jayme, I just had to tell you that I think you are fabulous!! I found your blog by reading Flower Patch Farm Girl's blog. I have started at the beginning and I just love you!! You are so funny and lovable. You inspire me!! I am 48, will be 49 in Sept. and could stand to lose some weight! Thanks for getting my head in the right place. I love all the chickens and your enthusiasm for all you do. You make it sound like you are living the dream! I wish I could write like that. It's like reading a great book from a personal friend. It makes me laugh out loud. My husband ask what are you reading!! LOL I am at July 30th, 2009. I'm going to bake that bread. Sound so yummy!
    Congratulations on the weight loss you look absolutely gorgeous!! I can't believe how weight loss and hair highlights changed your total look! I love it! Wish I lived close so we could hang out. We'd be great friends I'm sure!! Keep up the good work!! Your new friend in Alabama! Angie

  66. Oh, Jayme you are so pretty, before and after, inside and out. GOOD FOR YOU!!!! I started May 6 on my weigt loss journey. 8 pounds down. I go to the dietician about every two weeks to weigh in and...lost nothin' last time. Very discouraging. I know am eating better though. I still need to work in the exercise part ;) but I think it come once a little more is off. It is a slow journey...

  72. WoW! You're HOT! Now, you're making the rest of us look bad.

    And Victoria Secret should really pay you for advertising. All of your readers will soon be buying those bomshell bras hoping to pull off a Jayme!

    And I prefer the natural look with the chicken in hand. Down to earth and friendly looking is a good look for anyone.
