As promised I bring you pictures of what Elina looks like at 218 lbs.
*Bear in mind that I had limited resources so these are pics of my reflection, in my cramped little room. LOL*
It might not look like a big difference compared to the last pictures I took at 230 lbs but I can definitely see the difference.
-My arms are more toned and less flab.
-My legs have also gotten slimmer.
-My overall torso has turned from two huge tires to one big gut aka less rolls, over all with a smaller circumference.
-I've lost 4 inches from my middle since I started.
It's a work-in-process definitely. :)
I've been contemplating the changes I've made since I started this journey. One thing that really caught my eye was when I was preparing dinner the other night:
Rice with a lil soy sauce and herbs and a baked tilapia fish with onion, tomato, and green bell pepper, marinated with lemon.
My mouth was watering when I opened the foil and then it hit me. I HATE fish.. or more like I used to Hate fish.
I laughed at this and commented outloud,
"*LOL* If my 13 yr old self could see me now"
My co-worker (who was preparing his own dinner.. also fish btw) turned absently and said "Huh? What was that?"
I suddenly walked out of the kitchen came back with my camera, took the beautiful picture of my food, and put the camera away without comment.
My co-worker said nothing. I smiled and ate my dinner happily.
~Oh these days I live in~
