Before and during

Well I did say I'd post these on the blog because if I'm going to encourage myself to keep going to the gym I have to put the results up for people to see, but my usual dislike of photos of myself is the same as ever, just so we're clear. As per the title, they're not really before and after pics because I've obviously still got a long way to go, but these are the first set of comparison pics my personal trainer took. Unfortunately they're from slightly different angles which means the second pic is a bit more flattering than it should be for strict comparison, but still I think there's less belly there. (Well I should bloody hope so, considering some of the pain I've put up with in the intervening months.) The multiple chins don't seem to have any intention of going anywhere though. White shirt is Feb 2010, grey shirt August 2010. Apologies for the sweat, he really should have taken that one before making me jump around for an hour, not after.

He emailed me one photo twice so he must have missed one out and this isn't a direct pair but here's another set.

Well, back in tomorrow to work on the next layer of fat...

Excellent! I see the difference :o)

Is this all exercise or food as well?

Thanks; it's food as well, but not in an overly strict way, I don't have a specific diet. Just trying to have smaller meals more often, and only have carbs on days when I actually do a full workout.

I see a difference as well! You look fantastic! :)

Wow! You really can tell a difference, so keep up the great work! Sounds like you're really going about it the right way too, making sensible changes that are tolerable. I know any time I tell myself I can't have something, it becomes practically the only thing I want.

Thanks; yes I basically try and see how long I can go without food that's bad for me, but if I really fancy something I'm allowed it every so often. And the carbs day/no-carbs day doesn't count if I'm out with my friends - you can't exactly eat out and find something without any carbs!

well done! keep at it!

you've got the first picture right, where you are not smiling, but the during should show a bit of a smile and point toward the camera ;)

Actually smiling in a photo would be breaking the habit of a lifetime, it would take at the very least an "after" photo for that.

*giggle* hey that's you!

You do look decidedly more petite! Well done, keep up the good work!!
