Slow and Steady Wins the Race, right?

8/01/2012 *Sara-Marie* 8 Comments

In April 2011, I posted a series of pictures that displayed my weight loss progress. It's one of my most visited blog posts  - read it here. It's been over a year since I've taken a picture in the same workout outfit, so I figured it was time.

With the start of the Whole30 program, it's recommended that I take a "before" picture so I decided to compare this before picture with my previous before pictures (so does that make this a 'during' picture?)

This is my progress over the last two years:

What do ya think?
To be honest, I thought I would be much closer to my goal weight by now, but it is what it is. I still see progress though:
  • Looks like I've lost some boobs (not sure if that's 100% progress, I kinda liked my boobs!)
  • The shirt looks much more baggy in my belly area
  • And I think my lower legs look slimmer! Could those be smaller ankles? 
I'm still far away from where I want to be, but it's comforting to know that I'm getting closer. And at least I haven't gone back! Forward progress equal progress, nonetheless!

After all, slow and steady wins the race, right?

  1. Sara,
    You are such a beautiful woman! I am in awe of your dedication and will power. I am on my own journey to find the real and true me (physically). I have been working hard at working out, but continue to struggle with the eating. Your posts about meals are awesome and an obvious contribution to your rockin' body! I hope that once I am settled in my new life in my new home with my new husband, I will try out some of the recipes you post! Keep up the amazing work!!!
    PS I can't wait to see what awesome dress you wear to show off those legs at the wedding in October!

    1. Thank you Tricia!!! So sweet! I know you've been workin hard and it will pay off! You will be a gorgeous bride in October. Can't Wait!

      It definitely is a journey! I have to keep reminding myself that it's a long term lifestyle change, not a fad diet. It might take a wicked long time but I'm never going back! :)
