My weeks now are usually made up of half "good" days and half "bad" days, and the scale is staying the same or only moving down a little at a time. I'm okay with that though; as far as I'm concerned, I'm still winning as long as the numbers don't go up! On the days I start to get picky with myself, I try to think of where I started and 1-Remind myself I don't want to go back up there again so I need to be careful, and 2- Look at how far I've come and think positive. So with that in mind, let's look at how far I've come, shall we? :)
When I asked if I should do 40 lb pictures, the people who answered said yes, so here we go--The "before" picture was taken in June:
I started losing weight at the end of July, and here I am a little less than five months later and 40 lbs lighter:
The pink shirt isn't the most flattering in the world, but I wanted something that was a little tighter so you can really see the difference. One of the side benefits of getting healthy again is that I'm slowly fitting into more of my clothes. I actually get to choose what to wear now! One thing I'm still struggling with is jeans. I have one more pair I still need to fit into, and I'm hoping they're not floods like all my others (I have very long legs). When I get down to where I want to be I'm definitely going jean shopping. Do any of you know of a place that has jeans with irregularly long legs (that won't make me go broke)?
If you want to see all of the pictures I've taken in the same place, just click the "Progress Pictures" tab at the top of the page. And. . .I do have one more picture for you, just for good measure. :) This is a close-up I took with my cellphone the day after the pink shirt picture.
Here's hoping you have a great week!
