Last time I wrote I said I'd been avoiding cameras. Well, all of a sudden I have a few recent photos of myself so I thought I'd share!
First, my brother took the photo below yesterday at Weetamoo Woods in RI where we went hiking and came across some very friendly horses. :)
I am 5'6" (or 5'5" and a half-ish) and was 174lbs yesterday, so that puts me deep into the overweight range. So, I was actually pleased that I don't look, in my opinion, THAT big. I mean obviously I see much, much room for improvement, but I don't think I look....fat. Just a little wider than before. I was worried I'd look much, much bigger actually, because I haven't weighed this much in a long time...not since 2004 or 2005...and back then I think I looked much bigger (there are a few photos of what I looked like back then on my gallery). OK, I was actually even heavier in some of those photos, but I think I looked MUCH bigger. And I was a little worried I'd be looking like that again. But I really do think that I have much less fat now than I did in 2004 (though still way too much), and a lot more muscle. Go strength training. However, if I want any of this muscle to actually show, or to look less wide, I really need to lose weight. At least, like, 20lbs.
Oh, and by the way, my legs look weird because I was wearing capri-length pants rolled way up on my legs. It was just me and my brother, so I wasn't trying to impress anyone, haha. :)
And here is a photo from Friday night...I like how I look, but my hubby looks drunk...because he WAS a little drunk...hehe. Please don't judge! He wasn't the one who wanted a photo taken in the first place, and he certainly wouldn't have shared it. :) I'm sharing it because my hair isn't crazy in it. :) This one really says nothing about my weight, but I thought I'd share anyway.
