This photo is from Memorial Day weekend 2012. Two years later:
Memorial Day weekend 2014.
I actually wanted this comparison for myself. Many people, I suspect, are like me, in that we don't admit we are getting slimmer and yes prettier, taking better care for appearance, etc, for whatever reasons and there are many of those. I needed to measure the changes to fix in my head that yes, I AM slimmer and I AM prettier now than two years ago.
Unfortunately I had way more sodium this weekend than I'm used to now, and have been dealing with bloat and water retention. My running has suffered as a result; now I'm heavy and slow and stumbly, but each day brings me closer to my normal self. Can't wait for it to be done with! I'm hoping tomorrow I'll be able to do a regular run of some distance.
