Day 15- I hate blogger

nuff said.

I tried forever to upload three pictures...It won't let me...this is frustrating to no end...

This occurs with undue frequency.
Bad maintenance.

I will then frustrate you with what I couldn't upload.

I found a picture of the day my flip switched. That picture and a picture just after that really showed me at my highest weight. I was shocked at how big I looked in those pictures. I almost cried. I was embarrassed for a second, then was so glad I don't look like that anymore.

The picture I posted before...a few posts down (which also took two days to upload) I had already lost 14 lbs at that point.

When I weighed myself, I weighed 262. In that picture I was 249.8 lbs.

I had already been dieting and exercising for two weeks before the 262 number, so I was probably closer to 270 when I started...in the pictures I found...I looked it.


Blogger can't be screwed up forever. As soon as I can, I will post the pictures with my updated full body pictures...but even if you never saw my new full body pic, just the change in my neck and face is amazing. I didn't see myself as THAT big. They would be really cool to post, the day my life changed. It would be amazing...I just can't get it on the flippin' blog.

Well, moving on...I had a hecka good workout at the gym. I did 60 minutes on Arnold, 75 sit-ups 35 push-ups and at least 5 minutes of stretching. ( I have recently discovered the importance of stretching.)

I burned 630 calories and did 4.65 miles.

I am sitting here in November of 2009, about 7 months out from going back to Michigan.
I am psyched.

After seeing that Before before picture, and knowing what people saw when they saw me the last time I visited, even if I dropped in on them now, the change would be startling....I can't wait to see their faces fifty pounds from now.

It gives me that much more motivation...I don't think I need anymore cause it this point it is kind of overflowing into a big ball of energy.

Want some?

Here you go....

TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!!!



SEIZE THE DAY, NOT THE PANCAKE!!!

SCREW YOU BUDDY, WHILE YOU'VE ALREADY PEAKED...I GOT ROOM TO IMPROVE AND I ALREADY LOOK PRETTY GOOD!!! AND NO, I'M NOT DONE WITH THIS MACHINE!!!!

Chris

I've had a few occasions where photos couldn't be uploaded on Blogger too. I have no advice to share except to turn off your computer and try again. That's what worked for me.

Blogger pisses me off sometimes. I can't wait to see the pics!!

I can't wait to see the pics too. Just a thought, have you tried resizing them to a much smaller size? They will still look good on your blog, and they will be much easier to upload. I use Image Resizer found at (sorry the linking doesn't seem to be working): http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/Downloads/powertoys/Xppowertoys.mspx. If you use Windows XP you should be able to use it too. It is about halfway down the page I linked to. Once installed, you just right click on the image and choose "Resize Pictures" and then pick small.

Now on to more important stuff. If you keep this attitude up, I am going to have to borrow some of your energy for my "Motivation for Monday" posts! Watch out anyone who gets in Chris's way!

I would love to see your before pictures and see how far you have come. I just have my before - at 11 pounds gone I doubt if there is much change. I can feel it not sure if it can be seen though.

Love the motivation!!! Thanks
