Gaining Courage - NEED HELP!!! SOS
Friday, June 04, 2010
Some of you have requested (lol) I take new measurements and weigh in again since I've started Shredding...well, umm...I know I really SHOULD do it too, just to see how I'm progressing, but I admit - I'm having some issues with it for some reason. I just did workout #4 Level 2 last night and will hit up my 5th consecutive workout tonight - plan to move on to Level #3 this coming Monday, 6/7. Will go do laps in the pool first thing tomorrow am. I know I'm DOING much more, eating much better this past couple weeks, I even can swear I SEE more definition in certain spots (admittedly not where I'd love to see improvement, but baby steps - slow and steady wins the race) - but goshers - I'd feel so stinkin bummed if my measurements/weight are the freaking same as before I discovered the Shred - much worse - oh lord - if the scale is MORE from some weird reason.
Can someone serve me up a big slice of COURAGE to go with the plate of motivation I already have? This situation has gotten me all weirded out...why am I so scared to step back on the scale this time? Why won't I measure? I know I've been doing very well and I should have not a single thing to worry about, but JEESH...lol
Well, I DID take a pic of myself immediately following last night's workout. Bob is featured and all - pls excuse the stretch marks. My upper arms seem to be a bit smaller than some of my other pics.
Here's the pic:
haha - cheeks all flushed and sweaty!
Here's on to compare with from back in October '09 - right around the same time I started sparking. I was at 207lbs then - I'm in the pic next to my bro. You can tell I'm hugging him xtra close in every effort of hiding "Bob" - the tum tum from hell - not only that - but hiding it ALL with a mop full of hair!
It's a bit fuzzy - not the world's greatest pic - but BOB is clearly evident.
So...what do YOU guys think? Do you honestly see a difference between then and now?
Have a wonderful weekend - thanks for your honesty and time - and mostly, your friendship.
