The new me!

Saturday, August 28, 2010

I was asked for some new pictures - I learned that my dearly beloved Ray is lousy with a camera!

Twice he took fuzzies and twice I wasn't even in the fuzzies! emoticon

Here he was talking to me and took the picture!

I've seen shots from behind but I was still walking when he said, "done"

and I look angry in this one because he didn't wait for me to smile! But the shot is good anyway...

Yup - my arms are still flabby but they are smaller than when I started! I have learned to accept the bad along with the good!

I am a happy camper!

    Oh, Linda, what a thrill! Your photos remind me of my "best body" year way back in high school! You look wonderful! You've chosen jeans and an exercise top for your photo -- only a badly chosen dance costume or swimsuit could be harder to wear -- and you still look great! Your tummy is flat! Your waist curves in beautifully, and you've got a nice hourglass valentine curve from behind. The new you looks fabulous!

    GREAT PICTURES! Given time and exercise even the flabby arms will shape up. I read that it takes 2 years of weight maintenance & exercise for it to happen but it will. You look GREAT! Love ya, Dawn emoticon

    You look GREAT, Linda! Jeans are the uniform "our" generation made. Remember the 60's? Yep, I thought so!

    Amazing! Amazing! Thanks so much for sharing. You look amazing and fantastic!!

Your hubby might not be the best photographer, but give him credit for trying. I doubt if I could get mine to snap a shot.

    You are looking awesome Linda! Thanks for posting some new pictures. It is amazing you have been able to lose so much weight mainly by walking (lots of it) and counting your calories. You are proof that it does work!!!
