I know you must be thinking, "POM - you're crazy - it's only January!"
Yes my peeps, I am crazy - that's not in question. HOWEVAH>>> I have 3 trips in the next few months that will require bathing suits. This got me thinking... and I can't BELIEVE I am going to do this, but maybe it will be motivational to me (and hopefully some of you, too).
So here we go. Bathing Suit Pics. SCARY!!!!! Not for the faint at heart. WARNING!
The first pic is me in 2005 - weighing in at 168 lbs. After I saw these pictures, I knew something had to change. Of course it wasn't until winter that year (and my 30th bday) that I finally made some changes. Besides my big ol' tummy and thunder thighs, my FACE was so fat! ICK.
Fast forward to Summer of 2006 - 7 months of eating healthy and a couple months of running. I had dropped to 134 (my current lowest weight ever). I went on a trip to Hawaii, where this pic was taken.
NOW - here is where I'm at - Stuck at about 139. Only 5 lbs difference but it's all in the belly. I have not changed my exercise routine BUT I was eating and drinking more. For me- weight loss is all about food/drink.
I have less than a month before heading back to Hawaii. I would love to get back to where I was in 2006 and I know what I need to do. So let's do this thing! And yes, I am wearing the same suit so I really I do need to go bathing suit shopping. That's worse than jeans shopping. Eek Gads!
