We were able to find the time this evening to take some pictures. It seems fitting that we did a little photo shoot on the eve of my 40th day of juice feasting. The number 40 has always had significance to me and even though I'm far from being finished with my juice feast, the number 40 represents completion of a cycle. So, tonight...we celebrate with photos. I decided to wear the same shirt I had on in my before photographs so you can see exactly how it is now fitting differently.
Yes, my hair is lighter (much closer to my natural color now) and I have had to buy new jeans. In the initial photo I am in a very tight size 14 (can you say camel toe?) and the new shot is a comfortable size 10.
I have been challenged on getting the pictures positioned correctly and my eyes are feeling a bit blurry, so this is all you get tonight. You can tell which shots are from today. I'll add more photos throughout this week as I figure out how to post multiple photographs in one blog. I think you can get the overall idea of how things are progressing from these two. I still have a good amount of poundage to release, but I feel so accomplished to already have a good deal of the work behind me. More importantly than the weight loss is how I am feeling and that is the most amazing and blessed part of it all. That is the reason I started all of this to begin with and this slimming is just the raw icing on the cacao cake!
