Mighty Morphin' Amber...

Before the positive, let me vent the negative real quick.

I HATE the fact that I can do a fantastic job while my husband is away.  The minute he walks in the door, my will power goes away, and I want to give in to every suggestion of junk food, fast food, or whatever.  I finally had a talk with him this evening and showed him the breakdown of our lunch.  Let me put it this way... one part of my lunch was 14 points.  o_O    Yeah, that's my reaction, too.  That would be MORE than half of my points for the day.  Ugh.  After showing him, he realized that we've been making bad choices.  (to say the least.  LOL!)

Okay, so now let me see if I can set this up the way I want to... The pictures with the pink top were taken April 30, the day before I started this adventure.  The pictures in the blue top were taken tonight.  The angle isn't exactly the same, but you'll be able to see a difference.

Without further adieu...






So Stuart suggested that I wear the blue from now on, because the black pants were a little too effective at hiding my butt and thighs.  (my words, not his)  *snort*  So, there, you get to check 'em out in all their glory in the blue pants.

I will tell you that after beating myself up about the chili dog from lunch today, it was nice to take a look at these pictures and see how far I've come.  I've still got a long way to go, but I can tell that my posture is improving, and slowly but surely, I'm making changes in my physique.  I'm really feeling so much better about myself, too.  Really.  :)

Wow! Fantastic changes! Just think, if your body is changing that visibly on the outside, imagine the healthy changes to the things we can't see - like your heart and lungs getting stronger!! Good job!!
