Day 590- Update Photos and Measurements


Saturday, July 13, 2013

Okay. So here are my photos from the beginning of my journey.





And these are my update photos for the beginning of Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred.







So I realized that taking photos in Spandex allow for a lot of sucking in and support. So these bathing suit photos are more realistic.

It's obvious that I'm 195 pounds. But I'm smiling. Isn't that weird?

It's because I know I'm not going to be here for long.

And here are my starting measurements for JM Shred.

Bust: 40 Inches
Waist: 36 Inches
Hips 42 inches
Thigh: 21.5 inches
Arm: 14 inches
Neck 16 inches

So along way to go to goal. But hoping to see changes in how I look and these measurements since I won't see the scale until my birthday. It's already wearing on me. I wanted so badly to weigh in after my JM work out this morning, because I was sure I'd sweat out 2 pounds. But I didn't.

So for today, I'll consider that a success.

Spark On, Spark Friends.

    What a transformation!!! And you look so aware of your extra weight in the "before" pictures; even sad.
Now, the best part of your pictures is your smile (I won't lie, your body is great, too!!!).

    I love that you are confortable enough to not only take pictures but to share them. You will look back and see all the changes and go "Yeah, I did that!" I can't wait to see all the progress you will make in the coming month. I'd wish you good luck, but we know luck doesn't compare to the determination you have.

  co-workers and I use to do JM during lunch and I could see my body change. I think you look fabulous in these pics regardless of the number on your scale. I look forward to seeing your final results after the 30DS is complete!

    You look amazing! Such a motivation and inspiration!!!!
I take my measurements each month as well and it really makes it easier to see where I've lost even in if I didn't lose a lot of weight. I remember my very first month I only lost like 5-6lbs and was BUSTING my butt on a daily basis. I was very discouraged, until I took my measurements and I saw that I had lost 10 inches! It really put it all in perspective for me.

I also track how many crunches/squats/lunges/push-ups I can do in 1 minute and how long it takes me to run a mile. I do this assessment every 4 weeks. Its a great way to see progress.

Keep it up girl...you are rocking it! emoticon emoticon

    We're on the same track. My husband and I have been working on JM shred for the last month or so, but had to skip days and such. So today is round 2 and I'll make sure not to skip any days. I'll start on workout 2 and move to 3.
It's funny to have found someone on the same journey. Even measurements are somewhat the same. I was just about to make a blog post all about. I'm not copying so...I swear! emoticon
Good Luck!!

    Not at all weird to be smiling at your current weight. Seriously. Happiness is not about your size. (I mean, think about it....do you really think everyone who is your size should go around miserable, depressed, and obsessed about their body all the time? Or even every time they put on a bathing suit?)

Anyway, it's awesome that you have such great goals and are working hard towards them. You should absolutely love your body enough to want it to be healthy. Knock 'em dead!

You look good. Love that your stomach has gone down so much and you don't have a lot of sagging skin. I know when I get this 50# off that I'll have a lot but then I'm 63. Good to be YOUNG, Hon. Make the most of it.

    You must be pretty tall to look so fantastic at 195 pounds. And of course being young is a big advantage too -- you are definitely to be congratulated because you are doing a great job and it will be interesting to see how you look when you get to goal.

By the way, you have terrific legs, you should show them off.
