I have been kicking some butt! I brewed and drank a whole pot of green tea earlier and am done with my water jug. I also drank a whole pot of coffee today, is that bad? It's my coffee cup I tell ya! It's my favorite one and it holds a lot.
I don't have any more bananas and I have been skipping breakfast these past couple of days. Last night I did an awesome workout. I didn't set my alarm and by the time I went back upstairs over an hour had passed! I really got swept away in the music that I was listening too. I did my elliptical, some weights, squats, leg lifts & crunches. Not to mention my dirty dancing in between LOL - I also did some neck stretches to help get rid of my chin fat! I feel so good. I am going to do another workout after I post this.
I can't believe Saturday is the day I am going to go dress shopping! I seems like I just made the appointment yesterday.
I went through one of my back-up hard drives and found some more pictures of me when I was at my biggest. I never thought I'd get excited to see a fat picture of myself but I was. When I started putting together before and after pictures I found it very had to find a bigger picture of myself because usually they were the first to get deleted. Looking at them now motivates me so much. I sent a couple I found to my Mom and she cannot believe that was me! She said she can't even picture me like that anymore & I can't either. I look at them now and all what I see is sadness and insecurity in my eyes along with a broken smile.
To me the picture below is like night & Day. I can't wait to see what the future has in store for me.
