A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words ~ Before & After


It occurred to me that to gain street cred, I need photographic evidence that I’m living the tips that I intend to write about in my blog.  While true beauty undoubtedly lies within, I’ve come to understand that our physical bodies outwardly express the love that we’re showing our bodies on the inside.

In the first 9-ish months of 2012, I lost about 75 pounds.  In the year since then, I’ve maintained my new weight, while continuing to improve my nutrition and fitness.

The first photograph is me, shortly before turning that metaphorical corner back at the beginning of 2012.  The second photo was taken during the summer of 2012, as I was finishing a Couch to 5K (C25K) program.  And the final photo was taken recently by a sweet and talented photographer friend.  (If any local friends would like a referral, I’m happy to put you in contact with her!)

My mind has been racing with blog entry ideas and I have many fun and useful topics in the works.  Of course, I’m open to special requests blog entries as well!  Stay tuned… and either subscribe to Just a Dot, Not a Lot through WordPress or “Like” my Facebook page to be notified of new posts.

So here it goes….
