Then and Now…. WOW!

Okay, I’m not a poet.  I didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, so that’s not an excuse either.  As I mentioned earlier this week, I didn’t weigh in this week because I’m trying so hard to break my obsession with the scale.  So tonight the fabulous Angie and I did my measurements to see how they have changed since October 11 when I really started on this journey.  I have lost a total of 18.75 inches and 2.8% body fat.

Angie assures me that is a fantastic number.  I’m honestly still not sure how I feel for a couple of reasons.  First and foremost, this is the first time that I have ever measured myself and compared measurements.  I’ve previously lived and quit by the scale.  I have nothing to reference as to what is good and what could be better.  Second, but almost as important, is that I have lately been battling some incredible demons.  Looking at the numbers tonight- all I could see was ‘you’re still fat.’  It’s true that I am still fat. I keep having to remind myself that Rome wasn’t built in a day.  I’m working to reverse 31 years of bad habits.

I’ve not been able to tell a difference in looking at pictures until tonight.  Angie and I also took some pictures as a point of reference.   Of course, I’m my own worst critic when it comes to pictures and what I look like.  So I’m going to let you see for yourself.  (Note: This is not for an ego boost.  This is simply a comparison for those that are interested and/or don’t see me often.)

Then and Now with Text

So there it is.  I’m going to keep pounding.  I have so far to go but I just have to remind myself that I’ve come so far already.  This is a journey.  I know it won’t happen overnight.  This helps to see that I am getting some results.

Until next time, keep working on your #sexyinprogress

  1. Holy Sh*t! You look FANTASTIC!

    I’m not just saying this to boost your ego. You can tell such a difference in your face, arms. Everywhere. I already told you you were motivating me more than any other skinny mini to make a change. And I meant it.

    Progress is slow but now you’ve been making changes for so long that they are becoming habits. I want to change my habits now too. Keep rocking it!
