Before and NOW pictures! (Read 22310 times)

    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: Photobucket after: said baby is 2 1/2, I'm at 110lbs, home from a 10k easy run: home from a 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.
    GREAT JOB Vix!!! Enjoy those size 0's!

    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!! Cool 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....
      Thanks, Shell. I wasn't sure that came off the way I intended it. Sounded like bragging, and I didn't mean it that way. Thanks everybody else for the pats on the back. And to set the record straight . . . most of the weight was lost eating right and walking a lot of miles--my before picture was taken the day I joined Weight Watchers. I've only lost 10 pounds since I started running, though I'll admit to a lot of general tightening since I do more strength work now. Thanks again . . . who's next? I want to stop looking at those pictures of my holding my arms out like that! Ugh! MTA: 'Course I'm not doing anywhere near enough strength work to get abs like Rockenmama . . . WOW! Nice!

            This is my favourite thread on RA.
              More proof... running is life. It makes me remember when I tried to run my first mile and couldn't. Here's to sticking with it! Congratulations everyone!
                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....
                  Why cant I see it?? grrrrrrrrr

                        You linked to the page that the pics are on, not to the pics. If you right-click the picture and select "Properties", it will give you the actual location of the pic. Just cut and paste that "http://......" link and that will link to the actual pic. MTA: nice job again on the weight loss, by the way!
