Roses for You

Hi Everyone~

When I found this photo of a rose garden from a recent trip, I wanted to post it to wish you all a beautiful weekend!

When my husband is out of town, we are lucky that we can talk on Skype. Well, a few nights ago, he snapped these pics of me...(They are blurry because they were taken live with the computer while we were talking.)

But, since I have spent this week mortified from those "before" pics on my diet post I made earlier this week, I thought I could at redeem myself with some current pics! lol

If you didn't see my diet post with before and after pics, just click: here

I hope you all have a great weekend!


Linking this to Pink Saturday!

Cindy, you should not at all feel mortified over sharing "before" pictures. Many people struggle with different issues and you shared a success story and that is inspiring! We loved you before and love you after!!! Hugs my friend!

Cindy, since most women in the U.S. have had some type of weight issue some time in their lives (including me), there's absolutely no need for "mortification." I for one am so happy to see photos of your progress. You look happy, pretty and healthy!

A big Parish hug......Angie

You must be so proud of yourself! I decided I wanted to look my muffin top. And, I had an ekg that had an irregularity in it and had to take the dreaded stress test...well, I started fast walking every night for two miles and it even included a gentle hill....I have lost eight pounds! Eight pounds in almost a month. I am soooooooo discouraged! I am sticking to it. Only, hahaha, 22 pounds to go.
Bravo to you!

The roses are beautiful, but your before/after body in progress pictures are the BEST! You won't believe this, but we in Texas are actually praying for rain so hard that we're even willing to take a tropical depression...our prayers stop short of wishing for a you folks in The Easy, we've had our share of those.
Thanks for stopping by on Pink Saturday. I'll add your name to the hat for the drawing for the giftaway Pink Altered Book. Have a Pink Week from start to finish.

Lynne Moncrieff said...

This post made me LOL. You shouldn't trouble yourself over your before photos, look at the journey it has taken you!!
You look amazing.

Natasha in Oz said...

Wow, you are the incredible shrinking woman! What an inspiration you are. I'm trying to lose some weight but gee it's hard. I will think of you next time I don't feel like taking my walk!

I just wanted to let you know that I have started up a weekend linky party where you can link up posts about your favourite Pinterest pins for the week, your favourite music/song or even a bit of both! It's Called Pinning and Singing on the Weekend and I'd so love to see you there if you have 5 minutes to spare!

Best wishes for a lovely weekend,

Cameron said...
