Front pic may 19

Yep, there I am in all my bare glory. It took me a while to get comfortable with posting myself like this. Hell, I had to mentally prepare myself for even taking that first February picture of myself!  I still don’t ENJOY taking these pictures, but I do like comparing them. Even more important, I don’t mind posting them for the public to see.

Ahhhh, the beloved back fat. At least I can see it minimizing, and those lovely underarm wings that my children call the “squishy thing”. They like pinching and flicking at it. Aren’t children wonderful? I used to think that I didn’t care about what people thought of me, and for the most part, I didn’t.  I did care what people thought of my body though. I wouldn’t react, would show emotion, but I cared.

Not sure what it is about the side profile, but these are the pics I love seeing the most from other people. The pictures reflect a 20lb weight loss. For me, the biggest difference is my posture.  I’ve busted my butt for 105 days to get these results. Now, for my last month with Ashely, I’m going on a strict diet to burn 10 lbs in a month. Don’t worry, I’m doing it the healthy way. I’ll be building muscles, exercising, and eating lots of good food. I’m just going to be cutting out sugar, reducing salt, eating every 2-3 hours, and having my foods strategically placed. Ashley created the meal plan for me to help me with my goal. I’ll be posting EVERYDAY (or at least that’s my hope) about how I feel and what I’ve done.
