So to begin, here's what I looked like at the end of April, '13. I had been fasting for about a month and a half, so I had probably already lost about 3 pounds when this was taken.
Then, at some point down the road, I lost my trousers. (thanks for that great evocative forum phrase, @simcoeluv!
My replacement trousers are a size 2 (US), the ones I lost were an 8. I haven't replaced my tops because I'll always be a "pear". But due perhaps to more than one female surgery, i guess I'll also always have that little paunch.
Well, as I'm proclaiming everywhere (mostly in my signature) now, 2014 is my year to get fit, so here I am ready for a workout... (bit of a lie, I wouldn't work out in a shirt that tight, but I love the message, and the shirt was all of $3).
Lastly, some of you saw this dress on a hangar, and remember when I was wondering if I could actually wear it. It's by far the slinkiest thing I have ever worn.
That's all, folks!
Note to newbies: Hang in there. It's SO worth it. I look forward to seeing your before and afters, whether in two months or two years.
