12-Week Progress Pix (finally)

Sunday, April 29, 2012

As my inspirational poster says, "I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday."

So I don't look like Jamie Eason yet, but for a short 12 weeks, I think I am on my way.

If you haven't yet read my blogs about Final Measurements or Final Lift Stats, I think these tell a more complete story than the pictures, but I know how human nature makes us all stare at the wreck at the side of the road. We engage with the visual.


Lifting Stats:

If you can't be bothered with above, it may be at least helpful to know that I'm 5'0" tall, I followed Jamie Eason's LiveFit 12-Week Trainer program, and lost 11 pounds and 20.5 inches. Our SparkTeam rocks, by the way!

Ok, for pictures. I only took a few poses with the befores, so didn't get a great legs comparison (but you'll see how much smaller my butt is).

Side View- yes, my butt sticking out the bottoms on the before. You don't really get to appreciate the fact that I had not one, but two rolls on my back (my arm is covering them) but they are gone now.



My favorite--Back and Butt (again, my butt completely hanging out of the bottoms on the before. surprised they stretched as much as they did. you can't really see how large the back fat rolls really are as they are half stuck in the top and the bottoms, but well, there ya go)

So my Afters are my new Befores and we'll see how much more progress I can make in 8 weeks.

    Thanks everyone for the very kind comments. Even being happy with it myself, I wasn't really sure what people would think. So used to the negative thoughts about what still needs work. But if I was "done" I would probably stop and gain it all back, so its probably best I need to keep improving!

    Dang girl. You look great!!! I would give to have that bod now. Wow. Look at them abs. You have cuts:) It's all good. I don't think my booty will ever be lifted like that. Great job!

I really wish I a had taken the before shots. You are motivating me to take full shots next week before phase 3. A shout out to everyone, do the shots so you can remember where you were. Even if you don't have the nerve to share. With that LFF, thank you for sharing with all of us. We are similar that way. Although I would share with all my spark friends (cause I love and trust you all) I am nervous about putting it out there. I will take your lead and share with all of you. You are an inspiration:)

Super Star LFF!!! emoticon
