Everyone loves a good before and after

So here I am upping the ante. I was inspired by by Giyen over at baconismyenemy, and her video post on CNN iReport. It takes some serious balls to shout out to the world like she has and it got me thinking, I gots ta get more serious here at Yo-yo No More. Although it makes me feel like pooping my pants, I'm going to start recording my measurements out here in the real world, eeeek. No-one likes a story without pictures so I am going to also post some progress pics.

I like the idea of starting from January, New Year, new life, clean slate. I found this glamorous pic of me treking through the rivers over New Year. Whilst the locale is beautiful and my wonderful Soul Sistah in the background is a stunning example of my genetic make-up at it's physical best, the headgear is somewhat embarrassing, hopefully it detracts from the similar shapes encircling my mid section.

So folks, here are some stats, starting from the day I started this very blog.

  1. You are very brave. I see progress in those numbers! Januay's are good for fresh starts or re-starts or just continuing whatever good you were doing starts. I restyled my house, put paintings on the wall and am thinking I should start yoga classes again!

  2. Yay Berni, yay! For what it's worth, I think you look hot in that pic, pink head-adornment and all xxxx
