This one is going to be ugly.

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

I've been thinking about the few times I've tried to come back on SP and how hard it has been for some weird reason that I don't quite still get. So in attempts to make this year the best it can be and to keep me on track on my weight loss, I decided to take pictures.

Like the title states, this is going to be ugly. I am so upset. I decided to put them in a collage and not show my face. For some reason that seems to help me tolerate them a bit more. So! Here I am!

The scale reads 165 lbs. Yikes! That is scary, since the lowest I was, was 154 lbs, put I sure I can contribute a couple of lbs to water retention, the rest....well....I hope to burn them off.

I've lost so much toning in my body it's not even funny!

I started off on the right foot. I did 40 mins of Zumba. I'm all stinky and I'm heading for the shower, but before I leave. Here I am. My 2nd journey on SP.

****I didn't realize it would come out this small. Here is a bigger one... WITH MY have no idea how this makes me feel....just a bigger encouragement to try harder right? (hubby told me I should've at least fixed my hair lol!)

    i totally understand. i was debating back and forth whether or not i would post my before pictures. i won't put them on my facebook/show my friends until i have after pictures. but i thought here, where everyone is working to better themselves, i ought to. it was hard, but its there and it just forces me to realize how easy it is to fall back out of shape especially over the holidays (Thanksgiving, my brithday, all the parties and christmas all wraped up).
    good luck

    First of all you don't look bad at all and other than some toning work needed I think you look fabulous! Secondly, I'm glad that you can see this as motivation. :) Keep up the great work and I'm sure you'll reach your goals!

    Your being hard on yourself, those are great photos.. Make the one less approach to lossing weight, if you use regular milk cut back to something with a little less fat percent.. If you use butter, try to move onto a margerine with less fat in it..
    If you enjoy your sugar, try sweetner. Many times these three things can make a good impact- also don't have alot of junkfood in the cupboards- you know it is there- fill up the fruit basket with different stuff and munch on them.. Change regular cola out for a small bottle of diet- make it last one or two days.. Get these things running and make your usually recipes more healthy- don't eat out so much- home made food is the key to a body that rocks- you then have the power to decide what is put in your pots and pans.. Change calorie heavy items out for lighter products- not go driving into strange recipes a life style change is tweaking your old habits for ones slightly better- not changing so you don't recognise yourself at all..
    My family also tastes dishes that look yummy- sometimes they think they got screwed as mine tasted better.. I make their favourites and win them over making a healthy equal to me..
    Teenagers look like they don't pay attention but hell they do, now my healthy food is not safe in the fridge so I make more lol.. Good luck and never give up.. Don't get put off- just snail along at it, many people would not have weight problems it is was simple. Just don't let a obsticle phase you, sit down and think about how you can hop over the fence instead on trying to open a locked fence...
