Been waiting a long time to post this B&A pic!

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

Last year when I first started losing weight one of my dreams was to be able to take lots more pics of myself while on vacation (and just in general). I was in the habit of being mortified by seeing myself in pictures and I was obsessed with making myself appear thinner or being sure my body was hid behind something. Three years ago we went to Spouth Padre Island and the pic on the left was me at 200+ lbs. I felt so low and felt like crap! When I realized we were going back this year, one of the things that motivated me was to take another pic of me at South Padre in the same pose to see the difference... The pic on the right was taken last week.



Even though I realize I have so much more work to do... lots of tightening and toning and about 30 more lbs to lose... I feel so much better about myself. I loved taking pics of me! It is such a change from years past and I am working towards a bikini next year!!!! Have to do it before I hit my 40's!!!!
