Not a bad week. I am down another 2 lbs and I managed to drop a few inches in the last 2 weeks. Woo Hoo! So, as promised, I am showing some before and during photos. I have been keeping up with my fitness goals and continuing to move. The last two days have been delightful, so I was even able to get a few walks in at lunch.
First: the Horror. So, while I am absolutely not looking my best, I am in a majestic location: Singapore. What an absolutely wonderful place to see. I cannot say enough rocking things about the place. (Except that being on a plane for 15 hours to Shanghai, and then taking a 4 hour flight to Singapore, in coach, really SUCKS when you're big.)
So, Pic 1, I am at the National Orchid Garden. This is my profile pic, just much closer. This was the pic that really gives Ethel her due. When I saw this picture, I knew things needed to change. However, notice the orchids. So pretty.
Next, here is me and Ethel at the Singapore Zoo. We met a few exotic birds. I would also like to point out that this zoo has an open plan, meaning that there is only a moat separating you and the animals. It is rad. I have never been so close to primates ever.
So, now the moment you have all been waiting for.. No, let me phrase that: the moment I have been waiting for: PROGRESS. So, this is me, 23.7 lbs lighter after tonight's Angry Elliptical session:
Note: I am wearing the same t-shirt that I wore in the Orchid Garden. It is definitely looser. New feeling for me: It is amazing how happy one can become when your clothes don't fit!
So, I guess the lesson in all of this is that despite where I was and where I am, I try my best not to let it limit me. Ethel comes with me everywhere. For those who are waiting to travel when they are thinner, or waiting to do anything for that matter... DON'T! Life is short. Live it!
