Weight Loss Progress -3/29/2010

Wow its been a long time since I've written a blog. Not that I've not had a lot on my mind from time to time, but time has been the biggest hurdle to updating this area of my existence. So the time has come for me to update my weight loss progress. I believe pictures are worth a thousand words so I'm going to post here and include pictures of this arduous journey. The first picture was taken of me Mother's Day 2009.
It is entirely fair to say that I should have removed myself very politely from any dinner table but good food has always been a good thing to me.

I joined the Gym in July and worked up the courage in October to take a "beginning" picture. I've finally worked up the courage to post all of these pictures on line.

I thought I might keep up this routine and took another picture in December. Can you notice any weight loss yet? I would like to think I can notice some difference in the stomach region but that might just be wishful thinking.

I worked up the courage to take another picture today 3/29/2010. There is a definite difference here, but I still have quite a way to go. I will continue on this journey. I've decided that I will participate in the Peachtree Road Race (10K- 6.2miles) and I really have the desire to run in the race as opposed to merely walking the course. To that end, I've taken up the Couch to 10K program and I'm walking and running on the days I don't go to the gym to lift weights and do the Elliptical or Stair Master. I hope my increased intensity will pay off with even more weight shift/weight loss.

I'm doing everything possible to get rid of my stomach... I do Crunches, leg lifts, twists etc... and it still persists. Any recommendations? I have a form fitting dress to fit into on 10/10/2010. More on that later.
