Mom’s Before-And-After Pics Are Not What You'd Expect [PHOTOS]

Allison Kimmey's Instagram feed is filled with pictures of her at her happiest, rather than at her thinnest.

"After spending 15 years trying to achieve the perfect before-and-after photo,  I was most alive right then, in that moment, being far heavier than I once was," said the mother-of-two.

The mom's message is that happiness is not, and will never be, associated with a number on a scale.
