Three Three - See Me (Progress Pics)

Be clear about your goal but be flexible about the process of achieving it -- Brian Tracy

I get daily emails with motivational quotes and this one stuck out for me. I think it goes along with the Progress not Perfection quote. In my past attempts at weight loss, if I messed up I would just think I had failed completely and gave up. This time around, I am more realistic and flexible about achieving my goals.

Well, I managed to make it through the day yesterday thanks to Ibuprofen and Mixed Berry Riiiiiicooollllaaas. Had chicken, green beans and roasted potatoes for dinner as planned.  I did manage to do a few songs on the Just Dance DVD and a little bit of resistance training with the evil pieces of rubber bands.  Like I said, I want to keep the momentum going and even though I felt icky, I just pushed through it.

It had been since November 2009 since I had updated my progress photos! WHOA! I did not think it had been THAT long. So here they are:

  Sorry about the flash... don't know why that happened...  

Well I can see some differences. First thing I thought to myself was... I had to ditch all the pants that I had been wearing for the previous progress photos since they were literally falling off of me.  My belly isn't sticking out as much, my butt is smaller and tighter and I have better bras now so that helps lift the girls saggy bags formerly known as my boobs. . My arms and face are a smidge smaller too so that is good news. I have added these to my Progress Photos as well. I think I will start doing monthly updates so hopefully I can see my progress each month in pictures. I would like to wear the same clothing so it is more consistent.

I am still feeling a little less then stellar so I will most likely just go home and do a repeat of last night. Still have a sore throat and congestion. We will most likely have pasta with a salad for dinner. Hope you have a great day! Until next time...


  1. Looking Great!
    Falling off pants is always a good sign!
