Photo update

It's been a looonnngggg time since I've posted a picture of myself, for obvious reasons. Who posts anti-progress pictures?

But, I got my crappy camera replaced with a refurbed camera (thank you Panasonic warranty), and I thought, oh well what the hell.

So, for your viewing pleasure (HA!). Here I am. Weight, 162 (yeah, yeah, I know). Size 12 shorts (Levi's), size Large shirt (American Living, JC Penney). I don't like my hair this short, by the way. My girl got a little scissors happy on Tuesday night. It grows fast, so no biggie.

Food's not been great, but could be worse. I finally used my treadmill yesterday. Did 50 minutes on it, & ran 14 of those minutes. I've printed a half marathon training plan. I really, really, really want to do Evansville's half on 10/10/10. I mean, I totally need that t-shirt--10/10/10.... how cool. It's just over 17 weeks away.

Completely doable, as long as I don't. freaking. quit.

Enjoy your weekend, friends. It's hotter than hades here, supposed to be over 95* for the next week. And it's only June.

Laura - YOU LOOK SO CUTE!!!! And I really like your hair - very summery!!

And, yes, we weigh the same amount (again)! You look really great. Really you do. :)

do not take this the wrong way

you look perfectly proportional to me in these pics

and you could have said you weighed
162, 152 or 142

and I would have believed any of those without question

I TOTALLY understand about seeing things yourself that you may or may not like, or wanting to be a certain size, or have a certain number on the scale, or feel a certain way when you run - I totally get that.

But I am just saying - you look proportional and good in the pics and I am very glad you posted them and said how much you weigh. I think that is important (reality) for each of us.

Another ditto of what Vickie said!

And I can't believe how hot it is out there...it's still chilly at the beach in the mornings and evenings...I have only just started consistently wearing short sleeves and sandals this week...and I'm a little chilly! ;-)

I like your hair, too. It should be great for exercising in the hot summer. You look fine to me, too.

You look adorable. I know you'd like to weigh less, but you should feel good about yourself the way you are now.

You are adorable. I should post myself in shorts, too. I weighed 162 yesterday and 160 today after being in the 157 range last week. I spiked up and I feel it but I am not freaking out about it. I am not giving up, either. It is so intereting how our weight follows the same ups and downs. But what I noticed in your picture is that I would have never guessed your weight at 162. It reminded me of my lowest weight pictures, 150s 140s. You are still in great shape even though you may not be right where you want to be. We can appreciate our bodies today and still strive to make the changes we want. Cute!

don't know how often you read posts anymore - but please read mine today and check out Sabrina's list in my comments.

AND

I think you should strive to write a post once a week now. you are past the crisis mode with your dad and sort of settled in to the new reality of work and kids and life. And it would be good for you to collect your thoughts and feelings and get them down at least once a week.
