progress pix…

I will be randomly posting pix of myself here – probably monthly. Right now I am way too embarrassed about my “before”pictures to put them up, so I will post pictures that were taken on Saturday night at my 20 year class reunion. {{Wow! 20 years}}

– So  you know, I got my hair chopped off  & had it high-lighted for the reunion, so the before pictures [that I haven’t posted yet]  show me with longer, darker hair & were take on 08/20/2012…

My fat head shot….

What I look like when dressed “properly” enough to hide the weight, but 193 pounds is still 193 pounds – no matter how well you try to hide it. BTW: that’s not my margarita. I rarely drink. MAYBE one on my birthday or Christmas or something, if then.

Weigh in… [AARRGGGGHHHH!!!!]

So, in order to track progress, I guess I need to have a starting point.  I’ve weighed myself on my fancy-schmancy, “state of the art” digital scale, and actually, I weigh about 4 pounds less than my guesstimate…which is always a good thing.  My depressing measurements are also listed.  Hold on to your hats, friends of mine that I know… this is the cold, hard truth.   If you’re thinking, “OMFG! WTH? Are you SERIOUS?”  – Absolutely. Totally, Unequivocally yes. Sadly my friends, it’s all true.

For the record, I am not choosing a specific number as a goal, as that can be unrealistic. Example: If I do mainly cardio workouts, I might lose weight and get to a “goal weight”, but I am incorporating weights.  Pound for pound, 1 pound of muscle = 1 pound of fat… HOWEVER, muscle mass is more dense than fat, so it takes up less space than 1 pound fat. In case you didn’t know this: Even if you’re sleeping, a pound of muscle burns more fat  than a pound of fat burns in the same time frame.  If you increasing your lean muscle tissue mass, you’re inevitably  helping your body burn more calories.

Ok, so I’ve put this off as long as I can….
