before photos as the BLBE challenge officially kicks off tomorrow I have taken before pictures to track my progress.

I almost did them in my sportsbra ala the real weigh in but that was a little scary so I'm wearing a tank top (which incidentally is not any less scary judging by the pictures). I'm also super SUPER glad I did not bake cupcakes before taking these because the results would have most definitely tipped me into a place where a few cupcakes would have been devoured.

It was really scary to see the side on pics without sucking in my stomach, which is something I do most of the time. But I realised if I was sucking it in I wouldn't know how much to suck it in for the next photo so here it is...all literally hanging out.

I'm having quite a down moment now looking at this and actually doubting whether my 55lb goal is even sufficient. I guess that's what I'll find out when I get there, but it's going to be a long, slow process I'm sure.

Ugh. This is one of the most depressing things I've ever done.


  1. Congrats on putting the photos up. I can't even do that. But at least these are only temporary, in time we're going to look fabulous!

  2. I haven't done picture yet, but I'm going to do it. I'm sure it will be just as hard for me to do it. You are brave and just think how much you will appreciate being able to see the difference when you are at the end of your journey.

  3. YAY for before pictures. I took mine last week but haven't posted them (I'll probably do it this week).
