Well week 8 has ended....onto week 9. I thought I'd share my week 8 results. So I have only lost 6lbs off the scale. According to tracker that translates to 9lbs of body fat lost and 3lbs of muscle gained. I've lost 2 inches off off my waist, hips, chest & bust. And 3 inches off the abdomen (measured at naval). I was about to give up at Week 5. I'm glad I've stuck with it. I can't wait to see what happens in the next 4 weeks!
I put my progress pic on my profile. Or you can see them on tracker - I'm HeatherC there too. Now remember I had no intention of ever showing anyone these pics or I would have at least put on some makeup! :) But I've seen so many people around week 4 and 5 that are feeling just like I was so maybe this will help them stick it out.
Nice work Heather - I see some great changes. Kick the next 4 weeks hard and you will be amazed at the changes to come.
KEEP ON KEEPING ON - LIESL
Thanks! I'm going to give it all I've got!
Holy Smokes! Heather great job. The 8th week pic shows much improvement!
I am 1 click behind you and starting up the 8th week, so when week 8 is done I'll post my before and week 8 pic.
Thanx for sharing. I know it helps us all to stay on track and keep the motivation and the energy levels high!
Can't wait to see your 12 week results!

Congrats on the losses!!!!!! You look GREAT!! The best is yet to come! Trust me!! :)
Glad you posted them, I remember the other day (at least I think it was you!) who said I'm going to try to be brave enough to post mine....You look wonderful...what are you talking about lady!! lol!
Keep up the Fantastic work! :)
DebMO :0) Blessed to be a Blessing...
Thanks Marqui! I was pretty discouraged after week 4 pics because there was just so little difference. The only noticeable difference was in my backside...which was enough to keep me going. I'm so glad I did. It was nice to finally see a significant change taking place.
Yep Debbie that was me. I wasn't sure there was going to be enough of a change to share. I think when I see myself daily I don't notice the changes. After taking the pic even my husband was shocked to see the difference! I can't wait for week 12! I'm going to kick some butt!
Right on Sister!!!! I saw most of my changes in wks 9-12 so looking forward to your progress!!! :)
HeatherC you are doing a great job!! Congrats on trusting the process and it only gets better from here!!

Nice job! I am starting week 4 today, and like you, haven't seen ANY "real" changes yet, not even on the scale, so hopefully by week 8, I can see some results, as you have! I told myself, that if by week 4 I haven't seen anything, I'd bump up the cardio & the weights, so we'll see how that goes this week.
Live TODAY like there's no TOMORROW!
Heather! FABULOUS job!!! The great thing is... you have gotten the slow part OUT OF THE WAY ALREADY. The rest will be FUN to watch!!!
Keep up the great work!!!
Heather! Awesome job- you can really see the changes around your waist and rib cage area. Your stomach looks alot tighter too!
Keep it up!!
Thank you all so much! Saturday night my sister-in-law got so sick of me pulling up my jeans she told me to "go buy a new pair of pants already!" But damn I hate do do that right now. I'm hoping to get down another size in the next 4 weeks! :)
yeah. What an awful thing to have to do..... :)
Congrats HeatherC. You look great! I too am entering week 9. I'm really stoked about the next 4 weeks because in my previous challenges it has been those last 4 weeks where I have seen the biggest changes. In fact just in the last few workouts I have started to see a nice vein down my bicep which is a sign of losing the bodyfat. Keep up the good work and let's finish strong!!

Your results are helping me keep going today! Thank you!! Starting week 4 and haven't had good motivation today. I know I need to stick with the program...and hopefully I'll be posting some pictures with good results in 4 more weeks :) Thank you!
