If I were never naked again...

I probably wouldn't lose another ounce, though that would make showering problematic. I am wondering if this is why I am not doing so well with the last 10 lbs.

In clothes, I look mm hmm, yeah, not bad.  In clothes, I think I look pretty trim.  I love buying new, flattering pieces for my ever-expanding wardrobe (so much so that I'm actually feeling guilty about it. I should be saving my pennies for our trip to Greece here, people!) Bottom line though, in clothes I don't feel like I need to lose any more weight. Nekkid is another story. I have parts that are still bulgy and my lower tummy, due to being much MUCH flatter, is suffering the consequences of some loose skin. I am really hoping that will go away over time. Not that all is so bad, despite the lack of weight-loss I think my waist is narrower, and my two-pack is a bit more defined. Could be wrong, could be delusional.

Clothed a little closer

Now for the scary pics...I took one a month ago, and the other today. This is what reminds me I am not finished!

Top: old pic                        Bottom: new pic
(I know the angles aren't quite the same)


So maybe I just have to walk around naked a lot to show myself that YES there are still some pounds to lose. Not that I ever EVER think I'll be some hard-body beach bunny-type. Maybe if I did this in my 20s it coulda happened. But at 36, with 36-yr-old skin, not so much.

I felt like crap warmed over last night, so I stayed home today to rest and be a big whiny baby. I don't want this cold to get worse, and work right now is stressful, so I know if I was there I'd be feeling it. This morning was bad, but perhaps my resting is working, 'cause I feel better this afternoon. Yay! I've managed to ward off several colds this year, so I'm hoping this will be another one.


And (sigh) I bought TWO new dresses for my trip to Greece. One is kinda sexy for a night out, and the other is more sweet for day. 

Kinda sexy, non?

A bit closer...

This one is kinda sweet n' sassy with the fuller skirt.

I apologize for the craptastical quality of these pics. It's the only way for me to get close to full body, and the flash won't work with the mirror and all that.

You should probably go look at something uplifting now, like puppies, kittens, or dudes getting hit in the junk by baseballs and other airborne objects, to get the image of my abdomen out of your head.

Take it easy y'all and enjoy those kittens! Wait, here lemme help with the first one...

All together now... 

Awwwwww!

Oh, oh, oh! I almost forgot! I got my 100th follower! Whooo! Thanks to this gal for joining me!

One thing i do to keep the weight off while sick and not exercising... I eat lots and lots of soup. And water. Fills me up, can't really over calorie it on soup unless youre drinking french onion. Anyway if you would have showed us your abs a year ago - you'd see youre doing stellar! Just don't quit - keep with your blogs motto!

I think you're looking fabulous...clothes or not! I can't wait to be at your size. But I see your point. I think we get more comfortable in our clothes and forget to really LOOK!

You look great! You should be very proud of what you've done. Hope you keep feeling better and getting over that cold.

Blossom said...

Spaghetti Cat said...

Tammy, I know my telling you this isn't going to affect the way you're feeling, but you look FABULOUS! And I'm seriously envious of your tiny tummy. Whether I like it or not (and I know you won't make me feel this way) when you get out here for a visit or vice versa, I'm still gonna feel like the fat friend. Dude I wonder if that feeling would go away even if I were 150? Blech.

Please smile lady. Do it for both of us.

Cris said...

You look awesome! I can't wait to be so close to goal-- but I have to admit, the journey along the way is pretty cool too!

:)

You look absolutely, positively, ridiculously amazing! Nekkid and clothed! Erm... I've got some "parts" that might need to be sucked and tucked after all of this is over with... random parts! but important parts! OK... I've said too much.

I have a little gift waiting for you on my blog!

Tammy said...

You guys are so sweet! You make it easier to show those pics of my "trouble" areas. :) Love you all!

Tricia said...

Omg, I wanna punch you in your tiny tummy when you're all "OH I AM SO FAT" then show that teeny tiny stomach. POW! You look great, and those dresses are way cute. Very jealous!

Tiffany said...

You look great and really don't need to lose any more weight. But I do understand the desire to flatten. I am the same way -well, I will be when I lose about another 15 pounds or so. Just keep doing what you're doing and you'll get there. Running, planks, russian twists - that should take care of the teeny tiny tummy. :) Bottom line though is that you look great already. Anything else is just icing on the cake.
