I am making progress but I still have a long journey ahead of me!




Happy as can be after weighing is this morning! 5/5/2011...a day I will NEVER forget! I reached a major personal milestone today and I also have now lost 32 pounds since Jan 1st and over 40 lbs since December which is the month I decided to really get into gear and make 2011 the best year yet! So far so good!!!  The last time I remember weighing this amount was October of 1995, I was 18 years old. 

 

I am shaking my head right now dreading posting this next photo but as I stated on FB today I want to look back and see how far I have come. I took this photo this morning after weighing in and seeing another drop of 1.8 lbs. It is coming off slowly but I am so happy with how things are going. 

I NEVER have posted a flexing photo of myself as I think I just look plan silly and I HATE my arms. I do not think you guys understand just how hard this is for me but I am going to be brave, just as I did on FB and post this so my friends can see and encourage me to keep working hard. Whenever I get down on how I arms or belly looks I always think at least I have arms! Seriously, it is a blessing. 

So as of today I only have 10.2 lbs to go to reach my new goal weight and hopefully tone my arms up more! I feel there are many TRX sessions in my future this summer to reach my goal but I am ready!!! 

 
5/5/2011. Size small shirt from VS and size 4 pants from Lululemon. Changes are taking place but I still have a long way to go. I CAN do this!! 

I did have another fun shopping trip to LuLulemon today! That is my reward store!!! I got a super cute pair of pants for my upcoming trip, black capris TOO cute! I did decide to go up a size. I have 2 pairs of size 4 pants from there but for this pair I got a 6. They fit fantastic! I cannot wait to wear them in Paris, maybe it will motivate me to stay away from the croissants and cheese that I devoured the past two times I have been there. 

Thanks a much for your support!!

You are one of the strongest women I know, you definitely look good flexing those muscles! (Everybody feels stupid doing that, I think - no worries!!) Congrats on your big big milestone!

There's no way I could resist that food! Have a great time while you are there!

You keep flexing Jennifer! I love it! You are one of those women now when I'm shopping at the Gap and see size 4 and I say "who the heck wears a size 4?!" It's YOU!!!!!!!!!!

You are simply amazing! Seriously! I am so happy I have met you! You inspire me every single day.

Hi Jen,
You look so beautiful and you inspire me everyday! I've been looking through your posts and wondered - do you aim for a certain calorie count everyday and a certain amount of calories burned? Or do you just eat super clean?
I'm sure I missed the post but I would love to use more of your plan since I've already started using so many of your foods!
yours, Amie
