So while I was going through my photo archives for some blog worthy pictures I found some old pictures of me back in the pre-mama Alyssa days and I couldn't help feel a little depressed while I shoved the last remaining pieces of Chips on my plate into my mouth LOL...
This picture was actually taken in 2009 and I was about a few day pregnant here, but my camera date was a bit behind and I had no idea how to change the date. Oh Please Don't mind the car aka "Maria" she was/is my first car and I had to take a picture with her LOL and name her...just had to clear that one up I don't take car photos, this was a special occasion LOL
now how tiny was my waist? can you believe I use to complain that I was fat then? I did have a little belly then that was driving me crazy LOL. Its amazing how in only three years my weight has fluctuated this much. But looking back at these at least I see what I was and what I want to get back to...I don't want to be skinny because quite frankly I love my curves LOL...so maybe a couple of kilos off, a toned belly (a flat one will be asking for too much, I have never had one even before the baby LOL), I want to get my slimmer arms back and get my back toned and strapless dress appropriate...there's nothing I admire more than a toned back, shoulders and arms on a strapless or backless dress, I'm terrified of squeezed up spillage on top than I am of a big belly, nowadays every time I do a strapless dress I check the back and I say nah heck no not doing it! I mean I can tolerate the arms but the upper back I just can't oh no no no...
This is how I looked after I got back to work from my maternity leave thanks to Atkins diet and one hour of aerobics three times a week.
|Good Spanks do wonders! :D|
Now I know I should really be preaching about self love just the way we are and we should love ourselves in our current forms, and truth be told even when I was smaller I still wasnt satisfied with my weight and wished I was smaller this and smaller that and honestly women are just never satisfied with their bodies except for the very (veeery) few that are just born perfecto if theres even such a thing LOL
...but if it was at all possible and in our means to be better without liposuction (although I must admit that would be a quicker option, sucking it all out where I don't want it and leaving it where I want it ;)) LOL) then we should...So I hear by challenge you my dear readers with weight dilemma's kama mimi to send me your before pictures and after pictures of how you look now and where you want to be and then we start a program together I need a support group fellow carb-crack heads so we can do it together my motivation is my upcoming wedding and I want a 30inch waist.
