I was shopping at the supermarket today and they have mirrors. As I passed by one, I thought, who's that lady looking back at me with the cute figure? :)
I'm still, well, enormous. But I can see that my hips are slimming, my butt is firming up, and my midsection is really slimming out, as is my face and neck. I can see glimmers of the figure I had five years ago before I started to put weight on.
I know it will take me a while (two years, I think), to get as *small* as I would like. But it is nice that I am starting to feel like a better *shape* is within reach. I am so excited about this month's goal of really working my abs. I have a paunch and while it is going to take me a while to get rid of all of the fat, I think it would really help if I can firm up the muscles underneath. Additionally, having a strong core is so important for health reasons, not just for the aesthetics. My back will feel better and I will be better able to hold my yoga poses.
In honor of really working to build long, lean, muscle and get a more beautiful shape, I have decided to declare a summer motto and theme song: Bringing Sexy Back! lol
