Take Before & Progress Pics!
So yesterday was weigh in day- was not expecting any loss since I haven't been able to workout since last Saturday. Wednesday my flares got so bad I had to go to Urgent Care to get some antibiotics and pain medicine for the infections. Well I stepped on the scale and was down .8 lbs after I ate half a grapefruit and drank some SoBe Lifewater- so we'll say a pound even without the exercise- so although 1 pound in a week is a way slower weight loss it makes me feel better that even when I'm down and out with a flare-up I will still lose something! :) I was uploading some pics from my friend Sammie's camera from our trip in October last year to my hometown San Diego. Here's some pictures from that trip- and I'll include newer pics since I started this journey-although I still have a long long way to go- I'm glad I'm where I am and no longer look like these next few photos! lol
Here I am stuffing my face! Perfect Before pictures with junk food in them lol

And now for the most recent pics!
My Birthday Weekend February 2011- 1 month after lifestyle change
March 2011- 2 months in- 30 lbs down
April 8, 2011- 40 lbs down!
I'm needing motivation lately since I've been sick and out- so I figured looking through my progress pics could help me see what I've accomplished and to keep pressing forward- it definitely works- so if you haven't started taking pics at least once a month I encourage you to- even if you don't want to share them- for your own accountability and motivation. :)
