Default updated pics...so close to goal

Well I just thought I would share these few pics w/everyone because of the confidence boost I got last night. Went to the Nuggets/Spurs game up in Denver (Go Nuggets!) and I was given compliments by two perfect strangers. I'm not sure if any of you are like me, but when I receive a compliment from someone I know I kind of take it with a grain of salt, like they're supposed to say something nice. But last night was different and it made me feel absolutely amazing.

I was taking a tour of the ESPN NBA tour bus and the girl that was working inside for ESPN told me that I was in great shape and that she would kill for my arms (my arms have always been one of my worst features and a part of my body I would always try to hide). I couldn't believe it, I thought she was talking to someone else. Then a few minutes later I was having my photo snapped with the Nuggets dancers and one of the girls had asked me if I ever thought about trying out for their dance squad I was so overwhelmed! Once I explained to her that I was a little old (about to turn 32 next month) to be a dancer she again went on to compliment my figure.

I walked out of there with the biggest smile on my face. My husband turned to me and said "Now do you believe me???" I guess it takes hearing it from a complete stranger to realize that I'm actually starting to look good. I still have issues with the way I see myself in the mirror and how I compare myself to others. I'm about 4 lbs away from my final final goal of 129 and I'm getting there....slowly but surely I'm getting there.

You look amazing. I know it takes our brains a while to catch up with our bodies sometimes, but it's so weird how something so obvious to someone else takes so long to sink in with ourselves!

Rock on, girl!

Amazing!! Yes, your arms are fantastic! Those were one of my least favorite body parts always too. It's nice to rock a tank top now, isn't it?

I'm so happy for you! You've done so well!

Woah! Seriously amazing. I remember seeing that mini goal thread when I first came to the site and thought how amazing you looked in the bikini after losing 50+ lbs! Totally inspirational, and now you've gone even further than your initial goal, TOTALLY inspired! THANK YOU!
