The Jeans…

Okay…I finished the workouts…they kicked my butt. I was able to get some pictures taken with me and the jeans that used to be really tight on me. I JUST finished working out so I look a hot mess…but I wanted to share. This is the reason I am staying the course with exercise and low carbing…

This is me in the jeans sitting down:
I am the one sitting in the front with the white shirt and the bun in my hair…TRYING to look and think thin. 🙂 I don’t think I was breathing because I was sucking it in…LOL!!  I was so upset that they took this picture of me.  Funny…I was still shocked when I saw myself in the picture.  I even asked “Am I really that big??” 
I didn’t take many pictures at that size so that is the closest I could find. The jeans are a size 14…I can see the difference now…wow! What a difference a year makes!

    wow…well done on the weight loss! Such amazing results. I know exactly how you feel in the ‘before’ photo, the amount of times I have had photos taken of me and I didn’t realise I was that big! You look amazing and you seem to have a great exercise structure. What was the turning point for you? What made you go for it?
    I will gradually try to read through your blog and read over your progress. Congratulations!

  2. Wow, Robin…these pictures really show how far you’ve come…way to go! And you look about 10 years younger than in the bottom picture where you’re wearing a white shirt and the jean.

    WOW!!!! You look PHENOMENAL Iggy! Congrats on the incredible results and commitment you’ve shown to your exercise regimen. Keep up the great work!

    Thanks DH…I wasn’t sure if you read the blog or not…You can call me Robin, I just use the Iggy thing in refernce to my cat that passed away. 🙂
    This has been a long road for me…I am getting closer to my goal everyday.
    Thanks for the compliment and for the comment…

    Someone looks good! If I could go a couple of years without being pregnant, I’d certainly go carb-free. =)

    Brian…lookin younger is the goal. I know I can’t do anything about the aging process…but I do know that exercise and diet help with the way that a person looks. If someone mistakes me for being in my early thirties then I will be happy. Most people think that the old pictures of me are of my mother…and they also say that my OLDER HUSBAND looks younger than I do…I couldnt have that!!
    FFF…to be honest with you and with myself…my motivation to start losing weight and taking care of myself started off as anger. I am no longer angry these days and loving the results that I am getting. I have pretty much EVERY diet book out there and the ENTIRE collection of Taebo. I just ordered AMPED…so yes I have more Taebo than the law allows these days. I wanted to see if I had wasted all my money on these book and on Taebo. I never really stuck to anything long enough to see if it worked. I also was tired of looking older than I was (I am already in my mid-thirties …didnt want to look older than what I was), tired of trying to find something that would fit me and wouldnt make me look like an apple, I wanted to feel good when I woke up and not feel achy, I wanted to look in the mirror and like what I saw…AND I read somewhere that diet and exercise combats depression way better than anti-depressants (I was on three different ones while I lived in Germany and they all made me feel worse)…I was just tired. I actually started too believe in myself and everything fell into place…I just didnt think of myself as too old or too fat to do anythimg (Mainly Taebo) and everything fell into place.
    Diane: I am more amazed that I am sticking to this…not amazing. I think that anyone who runs on purpose and is able to complete any distance run that ends with a “K” is amazing…I am incapable of running…
    Christine…I understand about being constantly preganant…I was preganant for two years straight and it really messes up your hormones. It takes them a while to get back into the swing of things…CONGRATS on your current pregnancy…I am really happy for you!
    Thanks to all of you for the compliments…I really believe that without the blog and all the enciuragement that I have received I wouldn’t be at this point in my life…
    HUGS!! 🙂
