I was watching Rachael Ray the other day and she had a woman on her show who had lost 40 lbs in the past six months. On the woman's blog, at the very beginning of her journey, she posted a picture of herself in a bikini. (Don't worry...you'll NEVER have to worry about me doing that!) Then she would periodically update her blog with pictures to show her progress. I thought that would be a good idea for me to do, too. Even though it's not a bikini, it was still difficult to put these pictures on here. I can't wait to see my "after" shots!
