Just some pics because its been a while :)

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

So I have been asked for some more pictures....I think I slowed down with posting them for one because I only have space for one more and the other reason....well I haven't lost much more weight since the last pic! Honestly there is only a 6lb differenct between me now and the last pic that was posted....however I did get into my goal jeans and did put some pics side by side to see even just what 6lbs difference can look like. We can't always measure by the scale....its about so much more than that! I suggest if you are just using the scale to get yourself a pair of goal jeans....I went from barely squeezing in them having a big muffin top and couldn't breath to sliding them on over the course of 8 weeks and I only lost 3lbs during that time! so seriously get yourself some goal jeans or be sure to take measurements other than the scale! :)
so here are some pics

just a 6lb difference between pics

Last march to this March year in pics....

what a difference a year can make...

The weightloss is coming very very slowly at this point but slow is still moving so I will take it! I am feeling very strong and capable of more than ever before! I'm challenging myself a little more changing some goals and switching some stuff up a little bit in hopes of breaking this plateau Im on...but as long as I continue dropping the fat percentage and inches I'm happy with that!
Oh and I have to share something exciting! I WON a MAKEOVER!!! There is a salon here that is very very nice....way out of my price range. A girl who works at the salon has a facebook page and held a contest for February. All you had to do was post your pic next to a celebrity pic that you want their hair color, style, and makeup. At the end of the month she took the names of everyone who entered, put them in a bowl and drew a name out.....and she picked mine out! I am so so so excited! Being that I just could not justify spending almost $200 on myself for a makeover I am over the moon ecstatic about this and so thankful to God for blessing me with this! I will definitely be posting pics after I do it!!! If you follow me on FB I have not posted about it there because I dont want my extended family to know that I won...I want to surprise them with the new look so thats why I haven't said anything on there about it. If you are interested in following my FB page
ourney I just post about my journey, workouts, and inspirational stuff and of course spark stuff....gotta spread the spark!
I'm really looking forward to what this year is going to bring all the fun and adventures and ACTIVE things I will be doing with my family! God has blessed me beyond measure! i am so very grateful for you all! You continuously stop by my page and encourage me and check in on me and I greatly appreciate every comment, goodie, and like I get!
I hope you all are doing GREAT! So tell me whats going on with you! I need updates!

    Awesome job! Love your make over! So understand the jeans, it so awesome when we can fit in them and few weeks before we had that muffin top! I have been going through the same thing. We can't rely on the scale. It is so much more than that! Thanks for being an inspiration! Enjoy your vacation!

    YAY! Congratulations on winning the make-over! How awesome! I was just thinking today that it would be pretty marvelous if someone would actually take me shopping and dress me, so to speak. I am afraid to break out of my typical colors and styles and yet, I know I would be ready if I knew how to begin.
    You look marvelous! And I'm so proud of you for fitting into those goal jeans! WAHOOO!!

    Hi Tracey !
    You are looking Healthy and Fit emoticon emoticon
    LOVE your Blogs ! :) So Inspirational and Motivating !!! Thank you emoticon It is so true what you mentioned that we can't always measure and go by what the scale reads. It's about feeling much better and comfortable in our jeans/clothes. That's where we can Truly see/feel the difference in our weight. You look AMAZING TRACY ! Even though you say there is only a 6 lb difference between your recent pic and the last one, Seriously you Can tell the difference ...... I see it in the pic's and I can see you look smaller. There is definitely a difference in inches and that's why we should not just go by what the scale reads. I am trying to go by how my clothes feel and these day's my pants are feeling way loser and I have lost a pants size ....Yeeeah !
    Down 20 pds as of 3/2/13 emoticon
    Still got way's to go but taking it one day at a time and I emoticon forward each day.
    I look at your pic's and read your blogs that truly inspire and motivate me to keep going ....
    Thank You Tracey
