Beginning - and hoping for MORE!!!

Sunday, June 20, 2010

OK - gotta tell ya - this was pretty depressing!!! This beginning pic thing!! I mean - geeze - I KNEW what I looked like, but putting it "out there" took me WAY out of my comfort zone. There are more in my gallery, but ONE is all I could put here. And yes, I knew the right hip was higher than the left too. Nothing is sacred!! LOL

I took these for the purpose of a harsh dose of reality and to push me past my stagnant self. I did a good workout yesterday and today and while my butt is really draggin, I am pleased with myself.

My problem is I don't really push myself. I am not competitive. Complacent and shouldn't be. And it is time to start being NOT SO DAMN COMPLACENT!!

Want MORE! Need MORE! Do MORE! Get MORE! BE MORE!! Not complacent - PROUD!!

I have my work cut out for me!!!

    It's all in the eyes of the beholder. I look at your pics and think wow.. I'm jealous of your defined legs. Mine look like tree stumps...

    I think posting a picture of yourself is couragous! We should all do this and see the results in 8 weeks.

    You will see a difference in 8 short weeks and you'll be glad you did the picture.

    The best thing about taking a before photo is when you compare it to your after photo!

    Good for you. I think I might do a picture tonight too, I am trying to get back on track and maybe I will find it motivating.

    Only you know what dose of courage it took for you to post this before pic. You should be darn proud. And I bet you will be even prouder in the following weeks, when you will post new pics showing your progress!!!

    Slow but steady. That's what usually works in the long run. And of course: Never give up!

    I wish you the best!

    Great job on stepping outside your comfort zone!

    Nobody can be more complacent than I tend to be! Do the baby steps and "fool" yourself. Before you know it you will have developed new habits and you'll be on your way to a new you! Hang in there!-Leslie emoticon
