first of all. posting these photos is something WAY out of my comfort zone...i don't tend to be a vain person but I am SO proud and pleased with the results of the shred thus far. i'm on day 15 today so i thought i would share a progress photo. i don't have a before photo so you will have to take my word that everything i point out is new/bigger/smaller/better. okay? everything i have pointed out in the photo above was either not there or VERY squishy.
and maybe you think my results aren't impressive...that's ok too. i'm in love with them. :)
areas of improvement:
thinner thighs with more muscle/less jiggle
i can see stomach muscles trying to peek through!
way less muffin top!!
very nice toning in my arms and upper body.
i have more energy and feel WAY better (who knew that was true?)
i haven't lost any weight but like i said...i don't have much to lose BUT i can tell that my mushy, squishy parts ARE being swapped out for lean and tone parts and that is ok by me.
i am doing this with a partner who has lost 22lbs to date doing this.
i have not changed my diet too much but since starting this
i WANT to eat better and snack less and eat better things.
so there it is. my most vulnerable post to date. :) i am so happy to hear from those of you doing this with me. i am ENCOURAGED by you all NOT to quit even though i WANT to each and every day.
