Baring my belly and happy New year!

Monday, January 02, 2012

I watched the Dr. Oz show today and it was all about woman and belly fat. This was very relevant for me as it is my one major issue with my body, and it was inspiring to see all the woman showing their bellies on national television. I don't think I am quite ready to do that, but I can not hide the fact that my belly looks like I am ready to give birth. I also have a distorted view of my belly, and I know a picture would help me realize just how big it is. So here goes, my belly in it's full glory: and my belly from the side:

My plan is to follow Dr. Oz's tips and post new pictures of my belly every month. If interested, here is a link to the tips Dr. Oz shared today:

    Susan, that was very brave of you to "put it out there", so to speak. I wish you good luck and look forward to seeing you post new pics as well as checking in on the team page. We really need to get together sometimes. Fifty miles is too close not to. Glad to see you again in the group post !! emoticon

    You are brave!

    Thank you again for sharing the inspirational story of the caterpillars who chose to become butterflies! I have "Hope for the Flowers" propped up in the window behind my laptop so I see it frequently. :)

    Yea, pictures are worth a thousand words, and believe me I stuggle with this too! I hate to look in the mirror and when I do I could just cry! My belly is as big as it was when I was 9mo pregnant I just can't stand it any more!!! so you are very encouraging for me and well I too need to have a picture of what is harming me right there in front!!

    Be proud of who you are, what you are doing and where you are going!!! Looking forwar to these shots to soon be the long before photos of a new you!

    That is a good idea. You are also very brave and encouraging! It's hard for me to even look at myself in the mirror. I think when I am able to get my camera working I will do the same thing. I watched the biggest loser and seeing them slowly lose the weight with the before and after picks are amazing. I think you are going to be great and I know you can do it. :)
