8 sizes and 26:58

In a friend's comment she requested I post more pics of myself, so here are some I took today. In the first pic I'm showing my size 14s I wore when I started working out in June. You can see the waistline has a crease because they were tight on me. I wore these jeans nearly every day. CRAZY! Yesterday I went to DI to get me some jeans to tide me over until I get my Christmas giftcard to the mall. I bought my first pair of size 6 jeans (I'm wearing them in the pics!) I was euphoric as I tried them on in the dressing room and realized they fit perfectly. I haven't been this size since Jake and I were dating. I can't believe I've dropped 8 pants sizes! 13 more lbs. to go until I reach my goal and I'm slowly but surely getting there. My other great news: I ran 3 miles this morning in 26:58, the fastest I've ever done it. I'm excited. I feel stronger. There really is no high better than this, working out and feeling good about yourself. I posted the last two pics so you can see the difference in my face over the past 5 months. I promise to post full body shots once I get down to 130... which hopefully will be soon!

okay, I am disgusting. We went to Chad's work party tonight which was at the Olive Garden. I stuffed my face on free, fattening, delicious food and then came home feeling sick. I had gorged myself and I threw up because I couldn't hold it all in. Now I come and see you getting all skinny and talking about exercise and I realize that I am a disgusting human being. You look flippin' hot!

So cute Jamie!! I wish you lived closer so you could be my personal trainer!!! Seriously, starting after we get back to AZ I'm gonna try to be like you. Being fat sucks!

Whitney said...

I feel better about myself after throwing up too, Ash. :P I'm glad you're happy and healthy, Jamie, it inspires me to eat better and exercise more. I'll have to kick it up a notch if I wanna keep up with you at the half-marathon in April.

Crystal said...

You seriously have the best transformation ever. It is so awesome. Obviously you are doing the right thing. Keep up the good work.

Verenice said...

WOW!! You look really good. I can't even believe that you are behind the pants in the first picture. You are posting a picture like my favorite show Biggest Loser. And, you didn't even use Bob or Jillian. I am soo impressed.

I am so glad that you've taken all of these pictures. It's so amazing to see the difference and to see how far that you've come. Great! You look great too! I'm glad that those sz 6 fit so perfectly. That's the best Christmas present I think I could have right now:)

Ang said...

Wow Jamie you are my hero! :) I've tried really hard to loose the baby fat too. I just got into size 8 jeans last week and I know the feeling you are talking about. It's a great feeling.

Great job! You are going to have fun with those Christmas gift cards...I have a feeling. For sure in January another play date. It is so fun to see you girls....and all the kids too.

Chad and Ashley said...

You look awesome Jamie! That's amazing that you are doing so well over Christmas time! I wish I could say the same! So I got my coat at Target. Oh how I love that store! It was only 15 dollars, but it was the last one at the store by us.

Adrienne said...

I am proud of you. Good job on your 3 mile time too--that is smokin fast!

Darren and Traci said...

Hello hottie!!! haha You look great! And the fact that running is becoming easier and you can go faster is awesome. It's always a good feeling when you know you are healthy rather than just skinny. Now you are having the best of both worlds of being a skinny little thing and healthy at the same time. You're doing great!

Amber said...

Good work Jamie! You look great!

Hi Jamie! So I was talking to my sister tonight and she was like, "have you seen Jamie Calls (sorry I know it's not your last name anymore!) blog lately?" And I hadn't and she told me about your amazing weight loss story! So I was reading up on how things have been for you and it's really inspiring! My problem has always been my eating. I love running (I'm working on getting my time and length higher) and lifting and I work out about 4 times a week. I'm trying to eat healthier but I'm wondering What kinds of things you're eating? Do you have a specific meal plan that you go by and what kind of work-outs do you do? Let me know! I'm sooo determined to lose a couple pant sizes!!! You look amazing and your family is adorable!
