Before/Now pictures

I decided I should post my pictures from when I started Insanity this round. I haven't had dramatic results, but I haven't been eating very well until this last week either. I'm hoping to see more results when I finish this next month. We shall see.

Left: Before, Right: Now


And just so you can see where I used to be, here's a picture of me when I was my biggest.



I'll post again when I get to the end of this next month of Insanity. I'm going to really focus on eating better this month and see what I can do. This weight just gets more and more stubborn as I get smaller though!

    P.S. Ignore the fact that I look like crap. I took the pictures after my workout, with no make up on. And in my second bigger picture, I was slightly drunk, lol.

    Like the other ladies said, you can definitely see results just from that round of Insanity. You look great! I think your legs look really toned.

    You are so inspiring elannis! You definitely have results...and you're not even done yet! It is impressive what you've done to improve your health and your mindset. So many people get "stuck" at an unhealthy weight and don't even try. I think it's so amazing that you not only have come so far, but that you're willing to share your journey with all of us. You're a rock star!

    Haha, thanks. I wish my stomach would get tan too, but I guess you have to actually expose it to the sun for that to happen, lol.

    Since you guys are so awesome and are definitely so helpful to get me to stop seeing my old self and start seeing the new me, I'll post my blog about my journey. It's just one post, but I wanted to write it all down and get it out there. It hasn't been updated in quite a while, but for any that are interested:

    Thanks again everyone!! :)
    And I also want to add that if I can do this, anyone can. I never thought I could until I tried it ...

    I'm very proud of you. I've been trying to find motivation to start working out and eating healthier for a few months now. You can really see a difference in your before/after photos.

    Thank you all again!!

    McLKathleen: My greatest motivation is my progress and my guilt. I feel bad when I get off track and I get extra motivation when I see the results. Sometimes you just have to jump into it. I keep track of measurements, weight, BMI and all of that too, so I can see how I am doing in different ways. That helps me too. I also have an old picture of me in the kitchen and a new bikini in the kitchen as motivation along with signs that say "Don't Get Comfortable!" randomly throughout my apartment, lol. There are a lot of ways to get motivated, you just have to find the right one to work for you!

    You are seriously so inspirational! You look beautiful in all of the pictures, and there is definitely a change in muscle tone in the 'after' set of the Insanity pictures.

    I hope you are so proud of yourself for all you have accomplished!


    This is me when I see you post about your journey:

    Thanks everyone!! I smile every time I see these posts from you guys! And I don't think I'm really all that tan; I think I just forgot to turn on the flash, lol.

    I definitely am proud of myself and I loved that picture! I honestly believe that positive thinking is the first step towards reaching any goal!
