Never in a million years…

Well Jim took me shopping today. I really needed a pair of jogging shorts. Jim said he’d buy me a pair if JCPenny’s had some so we stopped, we bought and I took a couple pictures. A year ago you would never see me in a picture or if you did it was behind a tree, rock, kid anything. Well today I have a couple for you to show you that if you stick to any life style change diet and exercise it’s possible to get a body that you have wanted for so many years. Now my body is no where near perfect and it’s not going to be but I have come so far and am so happy with the body I have now. There’s a few more pounds to go and some toning up to do but I am thrilled and you know what? So is Jim. So here is something I’ve never done before.

This is me trying on a size 14 skort. Me a size 14. I picked up a few 16’s too but all were way to big. It was so fun and Jim was in the sitting room waiting for me to come out and show and tell. I was so giddy and excited and………well ready for week two of phase 6.

So something a bit more revealing.  These are the shorts Jim bought me along with my jogging ones. He wanted shorter shorts then I wear and the halter top, he bought that at least 5 years ago thinking it would fit me, not then, not 4,3,2,1 years ago but today I tried it on and it fits. Still tummy to tone and some back fat and bat wings but getting there.

So headache or not I am going to work on week two of phase 6. I have to tell you, in my head I was thinking of ways to tell Allan I can’t go on. The headache is horrible but today it’s a bit less so maybe my body is adjusting better. I don’t know but I do know that another 10 lbs off and a few hundred more crunches, a couple 5K’s, a few more hundred miles on my bike and I’ll be toned and ready to not have to wear a shirt over my halter top.

I’ll weigh in tomorrow and tell you what I know. I’ll hope for the best and just keep doing my best.

Take care my friends and have a blessed and relaxing evening.

So glad to see you're moving on with Phase 6. I've been on 3 weeks of this and am so excited to be getting some real food tomorrow! We can do it!

I am so sorry you still have that headache!

Those shorts are awesome! Isn't it great to fit into that smaller size? You go!

OMG, you look supercute. Look at that. Shorts and halter top!

My boobies are definitely not halter top ready, these deflated puppies of mine. But I already bought a pair of shorts (not long shorts, shorter shorts) a size down and hope to fit in them in 10 to 15 pounds. I'm already fitting in some 16 slacks and some XLs (also some XXLs, so I'm sort of inbetween).

Isn't it great to get new stuff and feel like hiding isn't as necessary?

Keep going. I'm sure tomorrow's WI is gonna be amazing (I mean, seriously, that headache has to pay off in spades). Happy WI and SHORTING and HALTERING! Sexy lady!

You look FABULOUS!

I bought a pair of capris Friday and grabbed them to wear today to take Birdie to the airport. I had to hold them up while we were walking her to her gate--I must have looked ridiculous, but so what? I had to hold them up!

You look great. So nice that your dh pictured you in the halter, even if you had to wait until now to wear it. I had a headache earlier in the week , but today is ok. I am glad we're not doing 3 weeks of these i'm ready to start some food.
