30 by 30 Reality check!!!

The other day my sister and I took the first pictures of us in our series of pictures for my 30 by 30.  I have decided as I mentioned previously that I am going to post my pictures on here.....if you all see what I look like in real life (not just the pictures that I approve where you can't see any flab) maybe I will be better about doing something about it!!!  I weighed myself yesterday morning and my weight was 85 kilos or 187 pounds.  I am 168 cm or 5'5.5".

You have no idea how hard it was to post these pictures!!!  This has been a complete reality check!!  I had no idea what I looked like until I took these did I let this happen??

Here is the first picture...front side!

This is the side shot.....I look like I am pregnant!!!

From behind.....ugh!!!  Where did those love handles come from???

This one was just for laughs.

Now in the last week I have gone out for a 2 hour walk with Kobe in his stroller and 3 bike rides.  Each of the bike rides was a good bike ride and not just a quick stroll on the bike.  Tonight we went for a 1.5 hour bike ride around the little town where I live and it felt really good.  I feel so much better and I am sleeping really good. 

We (my sister and I) have also taken the kids to the pool two days in a row and we spent almost 3 hours there each time.  My face is so red today from the day but I know it will be back to normal tomorrow.  This weekend has been so great so far and I am so happy with it.

Tomorrow we are going to go for a bike ride too and I am really looking forward to it.

Good for you for doing all of this! Sometimes it is hard to wrap your head around how much weight you have put on. I am going through the same journey and I applaud you! I look forward to seeing your progress!

you look great no matter how much you weigh girl :o) But good for you and I can tell you, I´m in the SAME boat! Guess the last part of 2009 was a weight gaining months :-/ BUT we can do this :-)
