Some Gross Pictures....

If ya'll have a weak stomach you may want to skip this post...I'm going to show you some pretty gross pictures....ME!! But the good news is the second set are better!!






These pictures were taken on May 11 after my first session of the 30 Day Shred. They were taken right before I started Round 2 of the 30 Day Shred.
NO, I AM NOT PREGNANT!! I JUST LOOK LIKE IT IN THIS PICTURE...which explains why I am working my tail off to lose this weight.















After the second 30 Day Shred session -- taken on June 11. Although I am noticeably still FAT I am looking better now that I have completed the second round of the 30 Day Shred. After taking my measurements I found I have lost a total of 8 inches total from my waist, hips, thighs, upper arms, and chest in this 1 month time period. I have to say that is exciting to me! I also lost about 2 1/2 pounds during this time period, not great but not too shabby either considering all those inches that aren't there anymore!

I am looking for other options to continue working out...something different but just as effective or maybe even more effective. I'll be looking at Target and Walmart this weekend for options. I have many more inches and pounds to go, but I am progressing and that is the point, right??

Oh and over the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans I won this cool journaling book to help in my continued weight loss! It is amazing what can happen to you when you use willpower and talk about your struggles and your successes with your friends. I can not tell you how grateful I am to these ladies. Every week I get continual support and praise from my new friends.

Thanks everyone....and let's hope my next month's pictures make me look like I am no longer pregnant since my baby is 5 1/2 years old!!

Ann -- that's an AMAZING change in your profile In just one month. I know it doesn't feel like "just one month" when you're putting so much time and effort into, but it is. Wonderful progress!

thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment! and i hope you don't mind but can i take a second to object?? as in,
"I object, your honor!!"

you are not allowed to call yourself gross again!!!!!!!!!

(please???)

:)

you're beautiful in both sets of pictures, we are all just working to lose some weight. i know that's how i felt when i had a lot of weight to lose, but i always felt worse if i said something like that out loud. even if you feel it, you can't say it! but i do hope you feel great about yourself with all those inches lost and all that work you're doing!! because that's what really counts (even though i have to remind myself that all the time because i always fall into the same trap of how i "look" as opposed to how i feel.) but seriously, that is amazing and it sounds like you're doing a lot of working out - and by the way i love that jillian.

I hope you don't mind my morning ramble. i am proud of you for all that great work! (although i am from a different team. hahaha!)

(so no more "g" word, k?)
