1 month progress (w/ pics)!

Friday, August 05, 2011

Hi friends!
Hope you all have been having a wondermous-sparkly-spark week! emoticon
This week has been busy & I have a lot of catching up to do with my SP friends.

It's been a month since I got serious with watching what I eat & consistently exercising again, so it's time to look at the progress! I have to admit, I was a little saddened when I stepped on the scale this morning and saw that it had gone UP rather than DOWN in the last 2 weeks, but then I remembered that I have been GAINING MUSCLE! Once I took my measurements & progress pics I felt sooooooo much better, because although the scale went up a little, my inches went down and my pics show the rewards the hard work I've been putting into this + I feel so much better all around!
TOM visited this week. Oh, yay. ;) Gotta love that ol' icky feeling of bloating and cramps. Could my little gain be related to water retention as well? Probably.

Time for the results! emoticon

And now for progress pics...

This is my 1 month difference (July on top, August on bottom). I DEFINITELY see less flab & more definition! HOORAY!!!!!!!!

I could feel the most difference in my legs in the last 2 weeks, so I wasn't surprised when I saw that's where I lost the most this time. Hey, smaller pants on the way? I'm ok with that!

Do you see changes? I could use some encouragement if you do! How has your week been going?
