I hate pictures! But I am posting them anyways!

Thursday, June 12, 2014

These are my comparison pics from 2012, on the left, to today, on the right. Front, back, left, and right sides.

While I CAN see the improvement, especially in my belly and the lumpiness of my butt, I still hate my general shape. I know now that my hips have a lot of swelling (hence all the injections recently), and there isn't much I can do about that. I take an anti inflammatory and have been getting steroid injections for a few weeks now.

I keep telling myself that I know I won't be happy with my general body shape when I reach my goals, but I am 42 and don't have to impress anyone in a bikini. MY beau loves me for me and I am doing this for my health first and foremost. Any aesthetic improvement will only be icing on my cake.

Now that I have blah blah'd to put off the inevitable (if you have a weak tummy, turn back now!)....here goes.

    Small improvements are still improvements. You go girl! You do such amazing amounts of exercise with your job and walking etc. You inspire me.

    I hate pictures of me too! they are a great way to see progress though. hope to see a third set in a few months! :)

    Take some inches measurements, too. It's fun to see how much your inches can change, especially in places where you might not notice in photos!

    You can see in your photos that you have built some muscles! Keep at it!
