What a difference...

Tuesday, February 17, 2015

Yesterday I reached the end of Melissa Bender's 13-week bikini ready body program.

I took some photos, and then stuck them next to some photos I took 3 months ago. Here they are.

My first thought was 'are you kidding me?? 13 weeks and I've achieved NOTHING?!'

My second was 'geezo I hate those folds on my back, will they never go away?'

And then rationality and my kind-voice kicked in.

There ARE changes, you just have to look hard for them. On the front and back Before photos I'm quite a straight line, whereas in the After photos I can see the curve of my pear shape beginning to appear again. And in the side-on photos my tummy and junk in the trunk are definitely smaller in the After photo.

Yes, these are teeny tiny changes. But I know full well that the reason for this is myself, and all the rubbish I chose, every day, to put in my mouth. You can *not* outrun a bad diet. You can't outlift it, outbox it, outzumba it, outyoga it. I know this, and still I kept over-eating.

Yes, girl, they are small changes. Yes, you could have done better, but at least you did SOMETHING.
Yes, I could have done better, and maybe next time I will.

    You are too hard on yourself. I noticed changes between the pictures immediately, congratulations. Also I bet your insides are a lot healthier which is really important. Keep making those good decisions most of the time and you will continue on your healthy road.

    I can see lots of changes too - you are MUCH smaller and more shapely in the 'after' photos. Your face has changed a lot too.
    Keep going!

    Ok, I see a lot of changes! I think others can tell more than you can because we are always harder on ourselves. Way to go! Keep up the good work!!!
