Hello! Sorry it took me so many days to respond: of course we can be friends! :) And Welcome to SparkPeople! Greatest website I've ever found (okay, maybe I love pinterest more, but its not as helpful as spark friends are!)
Your goal weight is -65 lbs, and mine is 55 (as of last weigh in). I say we go pound for pound and kick some booty! (Be warned, my next weigh in is goin g to be awesome! :))
After Day 1 I am feeling pretty good. The only part I had to take a breather on was the cardio of Circuit One. I got a charlie horse in my leg! I am excited to try Day 2 today, though I anticipate it being harder than yesterday.
As for the Weight Model, I did the following: Website: www.mvm.com/cs/shopForLooks/Default.aspx?e ndpoint=personalize Steps to create model: 1) Enter all the relevant information, starting with weight. 2) Save image to “my photos” 3) Then update with current weight. 4) Save image to “my photos” 5) Then update with goal weight 6) Save image to “my photos” 7) Open paint and paste photos in
Steps in paint: 1) Go under “EDIT” in the tool bar and go down to “paste from”, pull up the first picture. 2) Leave the picture in the top, left hand corner 3) Repeat #1 4) Pull this picture off your first one 5) Repeat #1 & #4 6) Adjust your mat by dragging the bottom, right corner up toward your pictures 7) Save as “pick name” into your pictures folder.
Thank you for your kind comment on my page. I don't see the change in my face but thats probably because I see it all the time, but like you others have said that they do see the difference. I would be happy to be Sparkfriends. If you ever need to vent or chat feel free to stop by my page and leave a note to me. We can encourage each other on his path to healthy living. :-) With dedication and consistency, I'm sure you too will get to have a before and after set of pictures.
