This is me in April of 2009.
Let's forget about the fact that I am makeup-less, hairstyle-less, and just style-less in general here, shall we? Let's also forget about the fact that the photo quality is the kind you can only get from a point-and-shoot camera and an inexperienced photographer. (Sorry, FMIL Spaniel! We love you anyway!) But seriously... what is with that BUMP?! Oh, it's my belly. :(
This is me in January of 2010.
I think the differences are pretty obvious, but I should also point out that my jeans are two sizes smaller in the second picture!
It might not seem particularly impressiveI lost two pant sizes in 8 months, but I'm guessing that most brides here don't have that long to gobut the truth is, I didn't really get serious until November of this year... maybe the tail-end of December, if I'm being honest. So I really lost two pant sizes in five weeks. And if I'd had more to lose, I bet it would have made a bigger impact!
I have been doing the Buff Brides 12-week program for nearly six weeks now, and I flesh it out by playing Ultimate Frisbee once a week (about an hour of intense cardiovascular exercise!) or by doing this video a couple times in a row after weight lifting. I don't skip workouts no matter how lazy I feel, and I watch what I eat (most of the time). Amazingly, it really hasn't been that hard. And now that I see my own before and after? I don't think I could let myself fall off the wagon again!
Have you been sticking to a workout plan? Have you started to see results?
