    Wow, you look amazing! And you are such a great example of how just losing weight doesn't make a person hot. It just makes them skinny-fat. You can be thin but still weak and not toned. But lifting heavy and building muscle makes you HOT!! And does way more for self confidence than just losing weight. KUDOS TO YOU HOT MOMMA! :drinker: :glasses: :flowerforyou:

    In the first picture.. you looked like a very nice person and fine -- like most Americans a bit overweight but you almost look "normal." Now you look super fit and like a different person..with a bit of "hot" attitude (which you deserve)... I wonder if people treat you differently? or if any of your loved ones try to sabotage your efforts.

    congratulations on your hard work.. you .look amazing.

    I wonder if people treat you differently? or if any of your loved ones try to sabotage your efforts.

    I have actually had family shame me for my strength training. Saying that I was going to ruin my body. They have not only attacked my body but have attacked my financial situation (yeah....totally not related but since I am now fit, I must be rich) and my relationship with my husband (I can't look stronger then him).

    I have also had major fights with family members about wanting to have a salad included in a very high calorie meal.

    Friends are a different. They have been supportive and many of them have decided to change their lifestyle and their lives. We have really bonded and become stronger.

    I just brush things off now and laugh them off. I can't help people become more educated if they don't want to be but I maybe my story can help motivate others.

    No, I follow my own routine and choose exercises based on the muscles I want to work that night. I try to keep 2 days in between muscle groups.

    Geez the transformation is amazing and that suit looks gorgeous on you! So does your makeup by the way. Really really top shelf. I'm so glad you went with the bikini, I knew it would accent your figure beautifully and the colors/patterns you chose are just wow!
