updated pictures......

Well it is Tuesday and not Monday and this post is a day late and a dollar short. Well, not a dollar short, but you know what I mean. I meant to take pictures over the weekend and it didn't happen.  This weekend my motivation to do anything went out the window as soon as I got home from my softball games on Friday night.

So on Monday I took more pictures and well, lets see how they turned out.

Taken on 1/30/2013 - Weighing 176

These were taken 6/3/2013

Can you tell a difference at all?? I mean I feel a lot better and I think I can see a difference in my stomach area and my butt. And on Sunday I got to see this:

yeah it might be time to clean the ole scale.  

So that means I am out of the 170's!! This also means that I am 5 pounds from being where I was when I got pregnant with R. To see 164 will feel like a miracle, but you know what I have no plans of stopping at 164, I really want to keep going. Also once I get to 164 that means that I have lost 20 pounds from the day that I started P90x! It seems weird to think about that because before I started P90X I had never been able to lose more than 10 pounds.  Just seeing that number makes me want to push it harder and watch what I eat even more. And it isn't just about the number, what I really want is for my pants (which most of them I bought last summer) to be TOO BIG in the next month or so.  And I don't mean that they are just a little loose, I want them to be so big that I HAVE to go buy new ones because the ones I have are falling off of me. I also know that I am going to have to put on a swim suit soon and if that doesn't motivate me then what will.

Also did you notice that the difference in the picture is only 7 pounds. That is just odd because I feel a little lighter/thinner. I guess it isn't all in a number after all. Maybe at the beginning of July I will take another picture.  That could be a new thing, the beginning of every month I will take an updated picture. 

Well that is all I have for today. I am going to leave you with a pic of R again! I mean I just think he is too darn cute and to be honest I would still much rather see a pic of him than me any day!! 
At Veteran's Lake in Great Bend, KS

We planted a garden this weekend and he is helping me water it. 

Have a good week. And keep on keeping on. Oh also, "Life's a Garden, Dig it." Had to throw that last one in because we just planted a garden, LOL. 


  1. Jessica, the last time we were out there, I was definitely noticing a difference in your physical appearance. I noticed it a lot in your upper body (shoulders/chest area). Keep up the great work!! :)

    1. Hey thanks!! I always wonder if it is in my head. But I am glad that I am taking pictures because I can start to see the difference. :) You were looking a little different too the last time I saw ya!! :) But to be honest you look really good for being that far along, you are doing a GREAT job growing that baby!!

  2. Jessica, you look great! I can definitely see the difference! Keep up the great work!
