Ab progress after starting to commit to a healthy lifestyle 1,5 months ago. Proud of how far I’ve come already, excited for what’s to come!
“where is the finish line?”
Can I take a moment to say how fantastic this picture is? Thank you SO much for submitting it!! You look awesome! How long was the race? Which race was it?
Always move in baby steps. Even if your goal is huge. Especially if your goal is huge.
Whether you’re starting out or whether you’ve been working towards the same goal for what seems like forever. Progress is made one step at a time.
In running a race you put one foot in front of the other. One at a time. Eventually, you get to where you’re going.
It can be especially difficult if you have slid backwards and have to dust yourself off and begin again. You remember where you once were and want to begin from that point again.
But you can’t. And if you try to, you risk failure or worse: hurting yourself.
Being discouraged is normal. Being upset is normal. Being angry is normal. Being disappointed is normal.
All those negative emotions are normal and expected. Take the moment to faceroll, facepalm or berate yourself. Then get off your ass and move forward again. Learn why you tripped and remember to notice if it starts happening again.
It’s okay. You are never a failure unless you truly quit on yourself.
Make one small change. One at a time. Then realize that all those small changes add up into one complete transformation.
Stunning submission! You look AMAZING!
Worked my ass off :)
Absolutely gorgeous! Amazing work (And love the ink)
Is it ridiculous that I get excited over little cuts in my legs? -.- progress though!
Looking AWESOME! I tried to message you to tell you personally… but you don’t have your ask turned on. >_<
Looking DAMN good!
And this one is from September of 2010 I was about 165 here with pretty much no muscle at all.
It’s embarrassing… until I realize the difference. I am so strong now. I am strong and fast. Fit and fierce. I am proud of my self. I am proud of what my mind convinced my body to do.
Always plow forward. There is a stronger, faster, fitter you underneath every bead of sweat.
Ah! I just decided to try on that dress again. The elastic is dying in the waist, but it has laces in the back, so I can tighten it and still wear it.
Okay… I know I said I might post my progress update on my main blog. So… here it is. No promises that it will stay up, I may take it down. But… here it is for those who don’t follow my progress blog. My weight hasn’t budged since last month but my waist is down almost a full inch since Christmas Eve.

Holy hell I can’t believe how small my waist has gotten without even a half pound of difference. Whoa.
