Quick Post


When losing weight sometimes you just don't see a difference that's why it's good to take photos. When I get sad discouraged because I'm not where I want to be, I look at where i was.
As hard as this was to post I decided to do so as a reminder to myself. The depression and shame that I felt... and even looking at the photos stirs up those old feelings. I am my own worst enemy and harder on myself than anyone could ever be..but that's another story. Anywho this past Saturday I took a picture of myself in my size 8 "goal" pants. I chose these as my goal pants because they are wool (no elasticity). I was utterly surprised when they were kind of roomy around the buttocks. During a quick break today I decided to do a comparison photo with my day 1 P90X photo and here is the result.

  10. Wow! What a transformation! I have those Day 1 P90X pictures too, but I'm not brave enough to post them. It's really great that you put those photos side by side so you can see how far you've come. You should feel super proud! You look fantastic! As for being where you want to be, you'll get there. Just keep doing what you're doing. Look how many people you've inspired on your journey so far! It's awesome!
