I am surprised with face pics taken yest. & belly ones too! U should take pics...

Thursday, August 26, 2010

I took this yesterday, August 25th before I headed to town to get groceries. It seems like my neck has been looking longer so I wanted to snap some shots LOL
In my Tuesdays' blog this week I just used the August 14th pic because I felt it was recent enough to use... but this shows you that 11 days later... my face has changed or at least my neck.

Here is yesterday's pics up against August 14, 2010 pics.

I can see the difference in the neck and am so tickled. I hated how I looked like a turtle back in December 09. I have lost 2.25 inches in my neck! Now it looks longer... so weird!

See the comparison picture here:

Here are some belly pictures... still allot of work to do... but I am happy with the progress so far.

Same shorts but they were brand new back Jan '10 in that picture and now have been washed several times.. and I even have tried to shrink them so I can still wear them..
Looks like I had 2 booties...one in front and one in back LOL In the left pict taken 1-10 I had already lost almost 15 lbs.... so obviously I was bigger than that picture....

I have lost 5 inches right at my bellybutton and 6 inches at my natural waist... so cool!

Here is a front view:

So no matter how much you hate pics of you... take some and save them and take some more a month later or several months later.....they will encourage you for sure.

Just want to share with you something I found while shopping at one of our discount stores yesterday....
I thought it was great to find this little mini grill for $10 bucks... I had just looked at Walmart for a smaller George Foreman but didn't like the prices LOL
I cook my food separately allot of nites because the family still likes allot of my old ways of cooking and my husband is NOT going to eat what I eat everday.... at least not yet (wink)
I won't force it upon him yet! LOL

It shows it is a $63.00 value ?? who knows... But I like that it is compact and will stand upright to store in the cabinet or it is even small enough to leave ON the cabinet... My GF grills is huge... and a pain to store or even bother to get out of the cabinet... so YAAYY for bargains.

THANK you THANK you for your continued support... I am here for you too!
Now go take some pictures of your pretty selves!

PS I forgot to say I don't have any foundation on my face in the current picture taken yesterday... I have quit wearing it.... LOL

    I see it's a good idea to take pictures periodically. I will take your suggestion and do it too.

    You are making great progress, and it shows in those pictures!

    Woohoo! Great pics! You are one beautiful lady! Your face pic is amazing--I am afraid mine would show more wrinkles, but at least it is thinner. Congrats on the decision to give up white flour/sugar. You are absolutely right that it triggers appetite. I remember eating that McDonald's angus burger I wrote a blog about and less than an hour later I was hungry again although it was a very big sandwich.

    Keep up the great work--hope your DH will join you soon--guys are so stubborn sometimes.

    Your transformation is amazing!! CONGRATS on coming so far, and I know your journey is not over. I'm sure the bonus is how much better you feel. I don't think I could ever go without foundation, too much sun damage from my youth, many, many, many years ago.

    You look gorgeous!!

    Sherlyn, you are beautiful!!! You look AT LEAST 10 years younger!! I see several differences - in your neck, your cheeks are better shaped, and less puffiness around your eyes!! And your complexion is radiant without foundation!! AND your posture is so much better - you are holding your head high, shoulders back, and that says to me you are feeling good about yourself!! As for the two booties - you made me laugh out loud with that one!! I'm with you there too!! Keep it going!! You are doing fantastic work, and it shows all over!! Now go try on some clothes in the back of your closet!!

    What an amazing difference! You look fantastic! And, no, I don't think you need foundation either except maybe for very special occasions...just because. Keep up the good work!

    Wow, great motivating pictures! You're doing amazing! Thanks for sharing that mini-grill. I have a George Foreman hand-me-down from my sister and what I don't like is that its narrower in the middle. it looks like the one you found is uniform width. Gonna look at that when this one goes!

    You look AWESOME!!!! We have an indoor grill, a little bigger, and use it several times weekly. In fact, it is my husband's cooking tool of choice.
