Can't believe I'm posting this...

but I really wanted to show you all the progress I've made with my healthy eating and exercise.
(Please ignore the partial shot of the toilet)
When DH first suggested taking progress pictures I was very hesitant and really didn't want to take the first set of pictures.  I knew I wouldn't like what I saw.  But now that I can do a side-by-side comparison of where I was a month ago and where I am today, I'm glad that DH  insisted that I take pictures.

In total I've lost a few pounds but the big difference is in the shape of my body.  Overall I feel great and I actually don't miss the foods I often had almost every day prior to eating healthier.  While watching Superbowl last night I did munch on some potato chips and I found that I just felt sluggish and sleepy afterwards.

It's been a great journey so far and I can't wait to start the 2nd month of the Insanity workouts (by Beach Body)

And I'm truly lucky because regardless of where I was in my journey to get into shape, DH always made me feel beautiful and sexy to him.


  1. Wow, that is some AMAZING progress for the first month! I can tell a big difference already! I really need to get motivated and do something about my weight. I need to lose 30 pounds and I just sit around thinking it will magically melt away if I eat less. I am eating significantly fewer calories lately, but I know I need the kick of exercise if I want to see a difference.

    Congrats and I hope you'll keep us updated! I know it has to be nerve-wracking to post the pictures but they're very inspiring!

  2. wow! good for you - you are doing AMAZING!!! congrats & good luck on the upcoming ;)

  3. Great job! You are very brave to put your pictures up... I just could not do it. Kudos!!
