July 2011 after the birth of my daughter at 184 pounds and wearing a size 14 (all you'll see in photos from this time are of my face!)
Our wedding in January 2012 at 153 pounds and wearing a size 8
July 2012 (me on the far left) at 138 pounds and wearing a size 4
6 months ago at a wedding at 128 pounds and wearing a size 2
So, you can see the difference, even though my weight changes weren't dramatic. I've always been focused on how I FEEL as opposed to what the scale says since I know that I'm building muscle which weighs more than fat. I have put on a few pounds since this last photo, but I still feel great and I still fit comfortably in my size 2 jeans (however, my quad and glute muscles are getting larger/stronger so they're a little tight in those areas, but I have to wear a belt to keep them on my waist and a flat stomach IS my goal!)
I'll post another bathing suit picture after my trip to California next month...that's the deadline I've given myself. :/ YIKES!! But I know I can do it, and you can reach your goals, too! It may take time, but you've got to have patience!
