Belly-ssimo!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, May 27, 2012

My apologies for the lame title. I don't know why I'm sitting here saying that over and over in Italian, but we'll just call it part of my endearing charm and move on. Ha!

Big may be beautiful, but healthy is better!

I took some progress pictures this morning to compare them to shots I took shortly after joining SP in February.

I figured that, now that I've pretty much shared personal stuff and had it viewed all over the world, I could be bold enough to show these shots. I know I have a similar one in my photos, but I've never showed full frontal (whoa, girl!). I mean the belly, LoL. It's the part of my body that I am most ashamed and self-conscious of and embarrassed by.

Here are the stats to go with the transformation...

In 3 months - February 26th, 2012 to May 27th, 2012

Neck - 14 3/4" to 14" (loss of 3/4")
Left bicep - 12 1/8" to 11 3/8" (loss of 3/4")
Bust - 45 1/4" to 42 1/2" (loss of 2 3/4")
Waist - 39" to 35 1/2" (loss of 3 1/2")
Hips - 45" to 41 1/2" (loss of 3 1/2")
Left thigh - 25" to 21 3/4" (loss of 3 1/4")
Left calf - 16" to 15 1/2" (loss of 1/2")
Weight - 208 lbs to 182.4 lbs (loss of 25.6 lbs!)

These stats are what have me feeling confident enough to post these pictures. And knowing that you are all so supportive (as I try to be) and will not judge me viciously like we're in high school.





This is what SparkPeople has helped me accomplish!

I heart all of you! *muah*

  Wow! What an accomplishment! What were the biggest changes you made to make such a dramatic change in such a short time? Care to share the secrets of your success? What was the hardest for you and what was easier than you thought it would be?

And there's NOTHING to be ashamed of or embarrassed about!! Before OR after! Positive words about our bodies go a LOOOONG way!

You are BEAUTIFUL!

    You have more courage than I do!!
You look really awesome. Congrats on your success.

My belly is one of my problem areas as well and believe me when I say that you have a beautiful belly cause mine looks like a train wreck compared to yours.

Again, Congrats on all your hard work paying off and for being a featured member blog!!

    Wow that is big success in 3 months! In the same 3 months I have been sitting on a plateau and haven't lost any weight. Should have taken similar shots like you, since i have lost some cms...... Will see if I can get the courage to take a picture of my tummy..... LOL. I also hate my tummy most.

Keep up the good work
