Getting Results, a Vanity Blog.

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Well, I've always thought that friends like to see success in their friends. I feel like I'm having some s...l...o...w.... success. It's a long process losing those last few pounds. My 'love handles' are slowly shrinking.

I've been concentrating on diet, but admittedly, I am not perfectly monitoring and recording every morsel which passes my lips. But, I do okay.

I'm striving for a lifestyle change. And I don't intend to measure every bit of food in which I partake for the rest of my life. I do intend to pay attention, though.

So, here's my picture as of a few days ago. I'm 66 years old and yes, I am probably guilty of vanity here. But, then again, I sincerely feel many of my spark friends would like to share my progress, so here I am at age 66.

Thanks for reading and have a great day.

    I showed my husband, who is nearing 68, your photos a month or so ago, and even though he is quite athletic, he said he didn't want me looking at hot younger men. So I don't think I'll show him this one, thanks. (He was kidding!)

    I gotta tell you, I was showing your pic to a friend and she said "If I weren't married..." ;)
You are looking great and the words "If you've got it, flaunt it!" come to mind! :D

    Wow, that was a surprising treat to go with my morning cup of tea! And not just perving but inspiring regardless of our age. Though I am not yet to your level of sizzle and chisel it is great to know what can be achieved with hard work, plenty of time and tenacity. I guess I wonder why it took me to nearly 40 to act...Better now than never though!

And I have a mile marker of sorts I run past and smile about. It's a spot about 15 minutes down a flat road, just where it starts to climb a very small hill. On my first run I got to there and stopped, turned around and walked home. Now I'm not even properly warmed up at this spot but I always have a wave of gratitude sweep over me as I remember that every great thing starts with the first step. Makes me ask myself what baby steps I can take today so I can create more and more mile markers in my life!

Thanks for sharing!

    Looking good, Vic. There is nothing wrong hopping on the vanity wagon every now and put in the hard work so show it off! Yep, I am right there with you. My last few pounds are slooooooowly falling off. I don't mind though because I know I will be able to maintain my weight loss when I finally get there. I also eat healthier, but do not feel guilty if I have a little ice cream or a cookie.

Keep having fun shedding those last few pounds. We are almost there!
