The Sports Bra Shot ~ Revisited

After many requests to revisit the sports bra pic, I decided to give in and give you what you ask for. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING can snap you back into reality like seeing a picture of yourself in a sports bra & tight work out shorts. Haven't done it? I can promise you that it is FAR more motivating than looking at a picture of an unrealistic skinny bitch!

Honestly, I thought about cheating and wearing looser shorts, but because of you guys, there was no cheating and MINIMAL sucking in. This is me in all my glory the minute I walked in from the gym yesterday evening.

Week 1 ~ December 10, 2008: 140lbs

Week 21(ish) ~ May 19, 2009: 127lbs

Total: 13lbs

{sorry, no side shot from week 1!}

Last week I saw some old friends that had last seen me 18lbs ago and didn't know I was losing weight, and all gave me a shocking reaction that was so encouraging and so motivating to me. Sometimes it's easy for me to think 13lbs, big whoop! I see the number changing, I wear a different size, but losing weight is so mental sometimes, and it's nice to actually see progress in a side by side comparison.

I know that I still have a ways to go, especially in the toning department... hello, chunky tummy, but I'm glad that y'all made me do this. Now I have double motivation ~ I can visibly see how far I've come and how far I still have to go.
