The Journey Thus Far

So, I've now been on this journey for 15 weeks. It's been tough, but not as tough as I thought it would be, nor as tough as it should be! For a little bit of comparison, I wanted to show my first workout (04.06.09) and today's (07.24.09):

It's interesting to me that when I started, I was on level 5. Now I'm on level 17. When I started, it took me 45 minutes to burn 713.2 Calories. Now it takes me 25 minutes to burn 503.9 Calories. I used to burn an average of 15.85 Calories a minute. Now I burn an average of 20.15. That's an increase of 4.3 Calories a minute. If I ran on the elliptical for 45 minutes now, I would burn 906.75--a difference of almost 200 extra Calories!

Okay, now here are some kinda gross pictures, but ones that I love for some reason. They're the results of my workout sessions:

The Elliptical I run on:

(Please note the sweat that has pooled on the floor--sweat the ran down my arm, down the handles, down the bars, and onto the floor. Gross. But so cool!)

The shirt I wear:
(This shirt is actually light gray. You can tell if you look on the sides. Again, gross--but I'm kinda proud of it.)

It may be kindof gross, but I totally understand where you are coming from with the pics. It is a sign of where you are and what you are going through.

I find it pretty awesome that you are burning more calories per minute now. That is a bit of an uphill battle since you are losing weight. Good work.

Make it a great day!
