I really hate posting pictures like this, but I really need to start having more accountability AND...conversely... more self esteem. I am not a spotlight kind of person, ordinarily. Especially when I'm not comfortable with my weight. I've always been pretty active, and my body has responded fairly well to exercise and dieting. Until I hit 30 and had three kids. You read my post on that earlier. It's been a nightmare to lose this baby weight, and there is 30-40 pounds of it! I hate wearing a different person on the outside than how I feel on the inside. BUT, I'm still working on it, and not giving up.
This is a picture of me at the beginning of September. I really hate it. I'm bowling, by the way. I started Body for Life in November, which I've done in the past and I love it. And since then I've gained 5 pounds and lost...maybe half an inch. Yup, I've been so frustrated! However, I have toned up so much with the weight lifting and extra cardio, so that's good news. I have since had to ease up on the weight lifting after a visit to the chiropractor which I'll post about later.
Here' a picture from the other night. Granted, I'm wearing black, but my arms, waist, and hips are a touch more toned. Plus, I do feel better. I need to focus on the positive moments, however small and keep moving forward, no matter the slip ups! Also, ignore the disaster in my room, my 14 month old is a crazy girl!
I have been growing my hair out for ages, AGES! It grows so slowly! It's finally getting long enough to actually look long!
I didn't dye my hair, it's just the filter. But I've been able to do some fun hairstyles with longer hair, so don't let me cut it for a little while!
