so, i've attached three photos. the last one many of you have seen as my initial unveiling of losing my first 47 pounds looks like.

well marks the first day in an 8 week intensive workout plan that i am putting on myself. an old Iona College workout associate, turned personal training goddess (thank Lauren) has lent me her expertise. i contacted her and said these exact words, "I want something to lift my ass".

where my first round of weight loss was targeted towards merely losing the weight, and i'd say abs....i now want to hyper focus on my lower body.

so the initial before and after photo is below. and i took two photos today as another before shot for this experiment. wish me luck on my journey.

Today's weight is 156 pounds. That means I am down 54 pounds from my initial weigh in.
