No Your eyes do not deceive you. I am using the same picture again but this time I am using it as a comparison. Full disclaimer the pictures below were actually taken in April however it was 3lbs ago so I feel it’s still a fair representation.
Actual Date: 5/4/2018
Measurements in inches
R/L Arm: 16
R/L Thigh: 29.5
- Stick to some type of diet/ healthy meal plan (IP!!!)
- Read something other than children’s books (Check)
- The Swiss Family Robinson by Johann David Wyss
- Exercise 3x/ wk (IP)
- I did this 3wks in a row then not so much so mostly a win
- Post monthly updates on/after the 8th for accountability (Fail)
Is this were I wanted to be for my first weight post in a long time? NO but I am no longer beating myself up about what I know I did or didn’t do. I know what I ate, how much I worked out and what I let distract me from my goals. This time is different because I don’t feel like a failure. I feel like a work in progress. I feel stronger and more powerful because I’m not quitting. I feel grateful my body hasn’t failed me though I have put it through way too much stress and strain. The best feeling is seeing the progress even though I didn’t think there was any. My current versus my original shows a slightly smaller body but most noticeable to me is my waist. Again I can’t tell when I look at myself because breasts are in the way but this picture shows I have made physical changes.
To my body:
Thank you for not giving up on me. Please accept my apology for the abuse and know that I will never give up on you again.
With all my heart,
