i'm the same weight i was last summer. the pounds i dropped occurred in the first six months of joining the gym, before jeremy's and my trip to mexico thank you very much. since july 2014 i've plateaued in the weight loss department but i recently got together with a friend who hadn't seen me in months and she could see a difference in my body. she was surprised to hear i am the same weight. so i guess that means positive changes are occurring. it also means what they say about strength training is true...it really does make your body look better even if the same number of the scale keeps popping up.
anyway, that text got me looking through old photos...
|june 2012. me with my handsome brother.|
|may 2014. i had been exercising for three months at this point. don't we look so happy??|
|july 2014. in mexico. i had been exercising for five months at this point. wearing the same dress as in the photo above.|
|august 2014. i was sucking in my tummy.|
|november 2014. i had to buy smaller ski pants because my pair from last year kept falling off.|
|today. i'm not sucking in my tummy...i don't need to anymore. :-)|
so you see it's really just a slight difference over the past year. but it's a huge difference when comparing the past five years!
