New Years Challenge

Monday, September 08, 2008

So I'm a part of this New Years Weight Loss challenge, and one of the ladies posted a challenge to put up some "before" pictures from when the challenge starts, since we have 16 weeks together, we'd be able to see some progress in the pictures.

A few weeks ago, when I hit my halfway point, I had husband take some progress pictures of me so that I realized that I still had a long way to go. Yes, I know I've come a very long way, but I need to remember not to become complacent with what I've done thus far.

The pictures are in my photo gallery.

Good things:
*From the back view, there is space between my sides and my arms! And I'm not even trying to do that!
*The hump on the back of my neck is diminishing. That thing was gross.
*I have clavicles!!!
*My stomach doesn't stick out further than my boobs anymore!
*Posture supremely improved.
*I know you can't see it in these pictures but my legs are HOT. Totally toned, not an ounce of fat on them! Literally!

Things I know I still need to work on:
*Whats up with the back fat? I thought that was gone!
*Oh god help me with that butt.
*Want some BUTTER for those ROLLS?????

I'm aiming to lose 20 pounds by the end of this challenge. It's kind of a lofty goal, it averages to about 1.2 lbs per week or about 5 lbs per month, but with the holidays coming up, we'll see how that goes. I'll post pictures after that point, too!

    Oh Leighm,
    Of course only you see these imperfections. I love that you are in love with your clavicles because HELLO, I am too! It's nice to actually have something for your necklace to lay on.

    Your butt looks hella flat!! No ghetto booty there!!

    Your posture looks great!

    And can I just tell you, the picture of you in your gallery with the scarf is I think my favorite picture of you. Holy Smokin!
