>Look What I Can Do!>Before and NOW pictures!
Sure, I'll share my horrible picture in the name of getting this thread back on track.
before: six weeks after having baby #2, I'm carrying 170lbs on my 5ft frame:
after: said baby is 2 1/2, I'm at 110lbs, home from a 10k easy run:
More than the weight coming off, I'm thankful for the confidence I've gained to know that I can run the easy six and the long 10s and 12s (and someday longer) and the discipline to get my butt out of the house at 5am to do it! Well, having size 0 jeans instead of 16s isn't bad, either.
Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson
Vixi... wowza! You rock, girl!!
I love what you wrote about being proud of the confidence and discipline that you now have. That's what it's truly all about....

FINALLY - I actually put myself on facebook and am trying to teach myself to use it.....so i think I may be able to post my pics......they're not the greatest and please excuse my raw humor in the first one, but its the only chubby pic I have of myself. (the real fatty ones are on actual tangible pictures and I no longer have a scanner) SO here goes....
This was in Vegas in 2005 way before I even contemplated the C25K. I think I was topping out at 220ish
This was about 4 weeks ago while I was on vacation. Down to 160! I wish I had some good running pics, but my husband can't seem to get the timing right as I'm flying by him!!
Hope that worked....
