Pictures of Progress?

Merlin Show August 2008
So I’ve made a slight collage of pictures from the day I realized just how big I was to my most recent pictures….if this doesn’t motivate me, I don’t know what will.

<~~This is the most recent picture taken at a local magic show, August 2008, 199 lbs.

This was taken in July at the OC Fair this year (2008), I had just begun my 2 a days, 4 hours a day, 4 times a week swim classes.  202 lbs.

OC Fair July 2008Below was taken after having completed my 2 a days 4 hours a day, 4 times a week core fitness and kickboxing classes. Before starting this class I was at 206 lbs, this is June 2008.

June 2008This is at the Mother’s Day dinner 2008, my sister and I had made a deal the month before that we would lose 60 lbs or 3 dress sizes before our Mother’s birthday (September 16th).  I started exercising a few weeks after this picture was taken.

Mother’s Day 2008 It was this picture that made me realize just how uncomfortable and disgusted I was with myself.   It’s amazing how one day you just see it.  This was taken on my 24th birthday, February 2008.
