This is really hard for me to share, but I think it's important for me to just finally "put it out there". The following pic is my "before" pic...the day that I started, and the "week 4" pic to the right of it. I haven't been perfect these last 4 weeks, but I haven't missed a single workout, I've reached for 10's and I ate 6 small meals a day. I had a few slip-ups, but I forgave myself and persevered! On my cheat day for the first 3 weeks, I gorged, but today, (my 4th cheat day) I honestly didn't want anything unhealthy. It all the sudden just isn't worth it! I had a small treat today and it was enough. I only lost 4.4 lbs in 4 weeks, BUT the inches lost means that I am gaining muscle (which is much much denser than fat) and I'm losing that fat! Woo!!! Anyone else starting their week 5 tomorrow? 12/30/13? I'd love to be buddies and check up on each other!
Is the picture showing up here?
Hi, I had to click on your pic and go to your files to see your pics. You have done an amazing job. I start in the morning! Keep up the good work!
I hope you feel SUPER proud of yourself because the difference in your physical shape is SO obvious!! Have people been complimenting you in person? I would bet they are. Not just that though, what you've said in your post here is incredibly honest and right on par with the changes that a lot of really successful people go through. Slow and steady wins the race and it sounds like you are appreciating those little things as they come, as well as appreciating the things you have done well and actively improving things you could have done better. I know how when you take it one day at a time, you see and feel so many little changes that it really helps when someone else can point out the big ones. I hope you can feel how genuinely happy I am for your success so far at just 1/3 of the way through, it is really impressive! I can definitely tell that you are giving it your very best :-D just think how much more awesome it will be when you continue out the remaining 2/3!!!!
I saw your pictures. GREAT Job! I start week one today and am glad to find other motivating posts such as yours.
Amazing, congratulations on your success! I'm starting my fourth week today. It's amazing how much the body can change in such a short amount of time. I can't wait to see week 12.
What a change in 4 weeks! That is awesome! I started my challenge yesterday. I hope I see just as much success after 4 weeks.
Thanks for letting me know that it was viewable! I really appreciate your kind words...It's been two weeks for you now huh? how is the program going for you so far?!
Thank you SO MUCH for your kind and supportive words! I really appreciate that you took the time! I actually made a mistake... I posted those pictures as my "4 week" mark pictures but I realized that I had looked at the calender WRONG! It was actually the end of my WEEK 3 when I posted those pics!! I'm at the end of my 5th week now. Again, thank you so much for your support. It means so much to me. :)
Wow!!! That's all... What an amazing difference. I'm
Starting week two today I hope I have the same sucess. Well done
Awesome honeymonster_UK! Good luck. I will look forward to seeing progress!
