The Proof is in the Pudding... Or Progress Pics


Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Per the request of NEWYORKORCHIDS, here are some follow up pictures of what the last couple months did to my body.





You can see that is March 24th of this year and then today side to side in the same jersey. Also the separate pics since I don't know how small the images will turn out in blog form. It's still skin tight, as cycling clothes go, but the difference surprised me. EDIT**: sorry for the perspective imbalance; in the second picture i'm standing farther away from the camera, hahah, the change is not as drastic as it looks I realize!!

Front view of the very first day of B&B and the very last day:



Alsoooo. On Feb 18th, I wrote on my other page that I had bought this new pink rain coat that didn't quite fit but I got it on clearance and was hoping in time I'd be able to wear it.

Here's what it looked like then:



And what it looked like last week:





it's hard to imagine when you're at a certain stage of your process, that your body can ever be any different, but then it is. Weight loss is deceiving, surprising, magical at times. Will be interesting to see what my pictures look like a year from now at the half-iron in comparison to these.

    clare - this is proof that you can't target a certain area for weight loss and what seems logical, is never what happens hahah. in fact, the part of my body i noticed the MOST difference was my upper chest, by my collar bones, shoulders and around there. that part seemed to have shrunk more than anything - and talk about the least active part of my body in terms of what muscles were moving all summer. weird huh.

    Dash, it's an amazing change and I can see it in your smile too!!!!!
s
I see change every where, but your arms are quite impressive, mainly because you think spinning and you think major lower body that I often forget about how much upper body strength and core strength it takes to hold on and stay balanced on a bike.

I also had no doubt that you would rocking that rain coat quickly.

    I have to say that the change is drastic! Look at the differences in the graphics on the back of your jersey! Total difference and loss. and the next set of pics, your arms and torso look slimmer!
and finally, that pink coat....looks amazing on you now, as does that happy happy gorgeous smile I see on your face!

    Dear Dashly,

Of all the times I yell at you to stop deleting things, this can go:

"the change is not as drastic as it looks I realize!! "

STFU, Dash. The change IS as drastic as you, me, that guy, and that other girl all think it is. Go forth and delete that silly line and be proud of your amazing progress.

With love,
Your online editing conscience
