This isn't going to be a weekly thing... but since I'm taking my RRCA certification class this weekend in Dayton, I've prepared a post for today and tomorrow...
I've always loved looking at before and after weight loss photos, and the photos were something that motivated me while I was losing weight. I took a comparison picture every 10 pounds I lost, so that I could actually see the difference.
When I started doing Motivational Mondays on my blog, I started getting a lot of before and after pictures in my e-mail. Since Motivational Mondays are about short term goals and achievements, I thought it would be fun to put all of these before and after photos on one post.
Ready to be super inspired?!
I started running in January 2012. I ran my first mile February 2012 and went all the way up to half marathon in October 2012. In the before picture I'm 243 pounds and the after 183 pounds. I've now lost 80 pounds and counting!

If these photos aren't inspirational, then I don't know what is! I may be doing more posts like this in the future, so if you have before and after pictures you'd like to share, feel free to e-mail them to me with the subject "BA Photos". Editing pictures takes a LOT of time, so from now on, I will only be posting ones that are already put together like these ones are (side by side in collage format). Thanks for understanding!
