I see MAJOR changes from February to March! Side View: My stomach is much smaller! Front View: I look more narrow. Seeing these changes motivated me to continue on my journey. Since my pictures in March, I have been working out 5-7 days a week and I have started running!!!
Below, you will see my monthly progress for March...
When I first looked at the side by side of these pictures I was unhappy with the changes because I felt like there weren't any changes at all. I didn't let it discourage me because I know I'm working hard but it was a hard pill to swallow. BUT THEN, as I looked at the image again, I noticed several positive things!!! Side View: My butt is getting higher and tighter and my chest area looks smaller! Front View: My face looks thinner and my waist looks a little smaller.
Looking at my pictures have helped me to realize that my journey should not be focused on the scale. Instead, I need to recognize that changes are happening. Not only do the pictures tell me that, but the way I feel every day lets me know I am making changes! In April, I'm going to focus on continuing to run and I plan on incorporating strength training.
Check back in a month and I'll have a new set of pictures! :D
