Inspiration and Progress
When I first started losing, Lisa Edelstein from House was one of my body inspirations. I loved the way she dressed on the show... how her clothes emphasized her curves and ample backside. Plus, she close to my age, and I figured aiming for someone a few years older than me would be more realistic than trying to emulate a 20 year old.
Anyway, here's a photo of her I used for inspiration, and a photo of me last summer, when I was really happy with my progress toward that goal. And me yesterday morning. Even happier with my progress toward that goal, especially considering I weigh about 5 pounds more than I did when I took the other photo. I'm amazed at how much smaller my waist is now. And my chest isn't as bony. Yay, strength training!
I'm not as tight and trim as Lisa, but then again... it's not my JOB to look good. It's just a bonus. ;)
