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.

You can *definitely* see a difference, don't kid yourself! You're looking fantastic.

Just curious on the Couch to 5K thing ... I tried it last year and had a lot of trouble - I'm just having trouble regulating my breathing and I feel like I'm gonna pass out! Did you have any problems getting started, and what week are you on? We need to do some weekend walks/hikes/caches to work out together!

Sharon, I am calling you out because I think you were/are very jealous of Des. Unless you can prove without a doubt that the picture Des posted wasn't her, you should not make those statements. I hope she does come back because most of us enjoyed her and she was like a breathe of fresh air. GET OVER IT!!

Sharon, I give you credit for having the guts to post pictures of yourself on the blog, and admit your goal. You go girl! For great abs, look up a hoop dance class in your area. The one I take (not in your area, but it'll show you what it's like) is here:
