I felt really disappointed after seeing those. Was it all for nothing? Hmm. Well, I also took measurements before starting, so let's compare those next.
Wow. Look, measuring yourself isn't easy, and it's hard to tell if you're in the exact same place each time, but the fact that they are all smaller than last time leads me to believe I have made a difference after all. Overall I'm only about 3 pounds less than the start, and I sure wish I could see a difference in the photos - but I'm happy with the measurements. :)
