i was just looking at pics of me and decided i need to do a progress pic cause i feel different, but don't really look different in pics. the following pic shows me in december, when i decided to take monthly progress pics of me to see how i changed throughout the year. i've only actually done this about 4 times. ho-hum. anyway, the other pic is from tonight. 13 lbs lost and a couple sizes gone.
generally when i do these progress pics ii wear the same outfit for each pic and do a bunch of angles. but this time, being that it's 9:30 pm, i just put on the clothes and took the one. don't pay attention to my face. i was concentrating on being in the right spot and standing correctly. lol! anyway, my legs are looking good! i'm curious to see what december 2011 will look like!

broke down yesterday and used the credit card to buy groceries for the next two weeks. it was either that or survive on top ramen and who knows what. i made a menu for two weeks and bought only what was on my list and made good choices.
i'm trying out new breakfasts cause i get too hungry before lunch at work and i don't have enough time to snack. i decided to try out a green monster. if you don't know what this is, it's a smoothie made with tons of spinach and then other stuff that you can add. www.greenmonstermovement.com check out the website to learn more and try different recipes. it may sound gross, but it isn't. tasted mostly like bananas. i'm going to try the blueberry version tomorrow. i had two peaches at 10, cause i was starting to get hungry and the peaches were getting too ripe. i didn't work today, so tomorrow will be the real test, but i'm confident this will work out for me. though i'm going to add a whole wheat english muffin to breakfast tomorrow since i'll be eating earlier and having lunch later.
the frothiness on top kind of bothered me, so i would prefer a straw, but what do you do?
i'm working on following weight watchers again. it's tough when you can't afford the food, but i think i'm going to be okay for now. luckily the new system has 0 point values for most fruits and veggies, that so bothered me on the old version. the green monster really helps since the milk is the only point value.
with that in mind i made a huge salad for lunch with some left over pork ribs i had from last night. it was soooo good! blue cheese and a parmesan dressing made it really tasty!
i don't normally take pics of my food, but since i wanted one of the green monster and the camera was still there at lunch i figured what the heck.
i'm feeling really good right now and i hope this feeling can last so i can keep this motivation going. i'm going to conquer fall and winter and look amazing come spring!

i've been walking all summer. my legs are shrinking. my arms, well, we won't discuss them. but my stomache/belly/gut/tummy, etc won't shrink! it's still this gianormous being of nastiness. ok, i'm sure it's getting smaller, science works that way. this belly fat issue has been an issue for awhile for me, but now it's bothering me. i bought a size 16 pair of pants yesterday. they are just a bit snug in the waist, but loose in the legs. loose enough that i feel i could get away with a 14 if it weren't for my flabby tummy. i tried on an old pair of size 12 pants i have the other day, they went all the way up, but no chance in heck they were gonna come close to zippping or anything.
i'm tired of this. i know belly fat diets don't really work, they are a fad, but some of them have good eating guidelines, or what you should be eating. so i wrote those "superfoods" down and will incorporate more of them into my daily life. i try to eat whole wheat foods, but i do need to add more diary, beans, green veggies, etc into my diet. i'm hoping this will help my belly as well as the rest of me.
i know i drink too much alcohol and since summer is *almost* over i can now reduce that even more. i know that will help. i'm also going to snack betterand cut out sugars and bad snacks.
i'm tired of wearing pants that are too big everywhere but the waist.
anyone have any good advice or tips?
