What kind of workout/get ripped blog would this be without progress pics? A less awesome one, that’s what.
Here is one of what I think is the most unflattering pictures that there exists of me. And I’m putting on the internets.
Whenever I see progress pictures of people, and they list their weight, I always wonder how tall they are. So, if case you’re interested, I’m 5’7″.
That’s me in the orange, helping the MOH into her dress for my girlfriends wedding.
Here’s me in my dress:
This was my heaviest point, 194 lbs and wearing size 14/16. This was August 2nd, 2008.
Here is me 10lbs lighter (thank you TDP!) in September 2008.
The next 10 lbs took a lot longer. But I started running, and kept tracking my calories and eventually hit 174.
This is me, at my lightest yet, in April of 2009.
Then I sort of fell into the “stop working out so much, your dress fits!” and “OMG honeymoon, eat everything!” and “newlywed!” patterns and the lbs started creeping back on.
By January 2010 I was back up to 177 lbs. Yeah, it’s only 3 lbs, but it was 3 lbs in the wrong direction. Next came NROL4W. I had my loving husband take a picture of me when I got home from my very first workout, and I’ve been having him do the same at the end of every stage. Here’s those pictures so far!
Stage 1 Stage 2 Stage 3 Stage 5
Here are my final NROL4W Before and After shots.
And, here are my measurements from before and after
So, if we add it all up, taking into account 2 biceps, 2 thighs and 2 calves, I lost a total of 13.75″ and only 1.2 lbs. Taking my body fat percentages into account, I lost around 8 lbs of fat and gained 7 lbs of lean body mass. I’ll take it!
Now, I’m on to the Female Body Breakthrough and I plan on keeping up with the pictures and measurement. FBB only has 4 phases, each about a month long, so we’ll see what I can do!
