Week 10 and comparison pics!

Well, yesterday was weigh in day. I had a terribly undeserved loss of .2 lb. I'm not sure how it happened, but I'll take it and not have another weekend like that. I terribly overindulged myself. No more.

Today I did my first Zumba-related anything. I found full workout videos online for free, which is better for me than going to a class. To check these videos out, click here. It was interesting. I just did the basic work out, but I worked up a bit of a sweat. I also had Ben take comparison pics, as promised. So, here they are.

The first three are from the night before surgery, August 3, 2011. 264.4 lb.

These three are from today, October 14, 2011. 236.5 lb.




I'm in shock. I just looked at these pictures side by side for the first time and I can't believe it. This makes me feel amazing. If these pictures aren't motivation, I don't know what is. This is the only way I've been able to see a difference in my body. I'm so glad I took those before pictures. I wish I could report that my clothes are falling off me, but, I've stuffed myself into a lot of the same clothes for 5 years (when I went from 220s to 270s--gross, I know) so now I'm just starting to fit back into my clothes comfortably, which is also nice.

Thanks, ladies, for all your support. You've been great. I appreciate every single comment.

Have a great weekend, everybody.

xoxo
