I did my Lean Eating photo shoot this week. Thank goodness I managed to push down a couple extra pounds and even three more inches. I also did my final bodyfat test. I'm just a little over 20% fat right now. Too bad so much of that fat seems to reside in my lower belly.
The program ends December 27. I will likely have Kevin take a few more progress shots then when I have the final weight and measurement tallies. Those will be the ones I will post here. My official "after" shots were taken this weekend though.
I did my photo shoot as directed. All went fairly well. I had some good fitness shots. As long as I had a tank top on, I didn't look heavy at all. I just wish I looked a tad leaner and more defined.
We had to really improvise when it came to rigging up a backdrop and trying to do these photos in a small space.
These photos remind me of how far I have come, but also of how far I have to go. I have 13 more pounds I want to lose. It took me a year to lose 18. Let's hope at this time next year I'm making a post about reaching my weight goal!
Thanksgiving is upon us. I'll be spending it with Kevin's family in Illinois this year. That is a mixed bag diet wise. On one hand, we eat out, so I don't have a big Thanksgiving dinner in front of me where I can take second and third helpings of turkey and stuffing. On the other hand, my brother-in-law doesn't skimp on the types of restaurants we go to. I'll be eating out often and eating well. I guess it all comes down to the choices I make and also the willingness to stop eating at 80%. My hotel has a gym and a pool. There is no excuse not to exercise.
I am a little scared and a little excited to swim. I haven't worn a bathing suit for a few months now. How will my suits fit me and how will they look? I admit I look forward to finding out. Do I need a new suit for Costa Rica?
