View Full Version : GOAL! Lots of Pics. :)

So I am finally gaining the courage to show my afters. I don't know why it has been so hard for me but I think it is mainly out of fear that I let myself down by gaining it all back. But I have been more or less maintaing the same 3 lb window for the last month or so. So enough blabbing...here I go...And it is the whole story so please enjoy and for those still trying to lose I hope it inspires you. Oh and to explain the dates. I took the first two sets last year after having Bella so when I decided to lose I made it my goal to take my next ten lbs pics.

The picture that started it all. I had been 135ish since having Bella but then in January-April I ballooned to 151.8. I thought I looked a lot better than what I actually did that day and when I saw this picture I cried. I was fat and I hated myself for it. I don't hate myself for letting myself get that way though. Instead I feel sad for that me because I was miserable because of how I looked and using food to comfort myself which only made it worse.

oh...and what's an NSV goal?

11-21-2013, 08:59 PM
Thank you everyone!

and NSV is non scale vistories. I am working on toning still as I want as flat a tummy as possible. I have a big scar that sits sort of just off of where the lines would be if my abs were more visible but other than that I want my stomach to be flat. I am really aiming for a fit body not just a thin one.

Good luck with your toning goals!!!!

Wow you did great! How'd you do it?

11-28-2013, 05:23 PM
Thank you so much everyone. I wanted a reminder of what every "decade" looked like on me so that if ever the weight started creeping up I wouldn't be able to deny how much better I looked at goal.

As for what I did; it was a combination of things. I started with a juicefast and then from there gave up pop and fast food and I avoid restaurants. I also became more aware of things like that I didn't eat much fruit (lots of veggies but not much fruit at all) and that I ate more carbs and sugar than I was realizing and that I wasn't drinking much water. I also workout as often as I can using a combo of Jillian Michaels dvds, my eliptical machine or free weights. It really has been little changes besides the fast because I am a Mom of four so I don't have a lot of time to dedicate to what I am eating.

Wow, this is SO inspiring. We have very similar body shapes and it's really good to see someone lose the belly fat that I've always struggled to lose completely. Thank you so much for posting, it's very motivating!
