WW - before and after (kind of!)

Oh! Oh! This wordless Wednesday has lots of words!!!!
I have been asked to post before and after photos. But I have 3 major problems with doing this:
  1. I am not done my weight loss journey - I have come to realize that this is a life time journey and I am far from done yet!
  2. There are so few photos of me - I think I have posed for more family photos in the last 3 months than I had in the last 5 years!
  3. I have hit a bit of a plateau - perhaps posting some photos will help me break through it - my main "problem" is that I have really increased the amount and intensity of my workouts and that is leaving me hungry, craving food and grazing...but I will get it all under control. One good decision at a time!

So, here is the best I can do!

BEFORE
(yep, that is me in the far left corner, hiding from the camera!)



After


(yep, that is me, proudly posing while my son snaps a few shots!)

A few friends have also asked me about some of the weight/foody blogs that I have started to follow, so, in no particular order, here they are:

*smiling* thank you so much for the link to my site. I guess that gives me an excuse to try to update it more often!
Looks like you have been doing fab yourself! Way to go! I love the caption that states the pic was taken of your 5 year old, not bad!

Thank you for sharing your before/after pics. So inspiring! I just got my bloodwork back and my cholesterol is WAY high.....so it's diet time for me.

Woohoo!!!! Look at you! You look so awesome! I am just so proud of you!
Ya know, it is okay to eat a bit more when you are working out so hard. Just make sure it is the right stuff. And drink TONS of water!
You know what you're doing. Obviously. I guess I should just shut it.
You are doing fabulously!
Congratulations!!!!
