Virtual Me

So I've lost a total of about 15 pounds since my husband left.

Well, the total is probably more like 25 if you count all the weight I've re-gained and then re-lost.

Several times.

But I am at a new low, at least since way before I got pregnant with Audrey, and since I am yet again awake and trying to cough up a lung at a horrible hour (is there any good hour to expel a major organ?), I thought I'd update you all on my weight loss.

So, anyway, me in June is on the left, and me currently is on the right. It looks so dramatic on screen, but I actually haven't even gone down a size yet!

You know what it is? The website automatically distributes the weight over your whole boday, but I am here to tell you that that is NOT how it works.

It would be nice if I lost from my stomach.

I, however, lost from my forearms.

I have very svelte wrists.

My fingers are positively thin, and my wedding ring spins circles on my finger again.

My stomach still looks pregnant.

And that is just not fair.

Hey there,
Haven't been by in awhile. But CONGRATS on the weight loss. Don't get down on where your loosing it. That's just the enemy keeping you from enjoying the loss. You'll get there and your DH will LOVE it when he gets home.

Have a GREAT weekend.

Awwwwww.....I bet you look better than what you are saying. We always all underestimate ourselves and our images. I bet you look amazing! But you're right about the stomach thing. I'm one who has a problem "there" and I think most are this way, except for the few rare exceptions and I really don't like those people, and those people happen to be some of my friends. I hate them. Just kidding. I just let them inspire me. And then they make me realize again that no matter how many crunches I do, I won't look like them. It's a battle not worth trying to win :) But congrats to you on the weight loss.

Have a great weekend :)

We're always our own worst critics! I'm sure you're looking great Christy! Just keep up the good work. It takes time to gain weight and it takes time to lose it. And I know how challenging it can be to manage things with a hubby away on tour - and when mine was gone I didn't have any kids yet (the same won't be true when mine leaves on course in January). Just keep your eye on your goal and focus on the positive. I think having fab arms is a great place to start :-)

My best all time diet was the pneumonia diet- evidently hacking up a lung is also a great calorie burner. Well that and combined with the fact that I could only eat soup...

Hope you feel better soon.

Cograts on your weight loss!

Good going! In my mind, I still see you with the same body you had in college, unless I think hard about it or look at a more recent photo.

Congrats girl! That is so awesome! I am so with you though on where you loose the weight and where you don't. I had to lose 30 lbs at some point in the not so distant past and I am now 10 lbs LESS than I was when I got pregnant with #1 and STILL can't get this gut into the same clothes. Guess my wrists are skinner though...UGH!
