"You got 15 minutes? Then you’ve got time for this killer stand-up abs workout. Fitness editor Jen Ator, C.S.C.S., author of Shape Up Shortcuts, demonstrates all the moves in this quick video above. Check it out, and then set aside some time to get your core-crushing on. The best part? You can do it anywhere, no mat or fancy equipment (beyond some dummbells) required. Here are the moves you’ll be doing. Do 8 to 12 reps of each move, and three or four sets of the total circuit. Rest for about 30 seconds between sets. For best results, do this workout three times a week. 1. Dumbbell Side Bend (need two 5- to 10-lbs dumbbells) 2. Standing Core Stabilization (need one 5- to 10-lbs dumbbell) 3. Bow Extension (need one 5- to 10-lbs dumbbell) 4. Reverse Dumbbell Chop (need one 5- to 10-lbs dumbbell)"

I’ve lost 47 lbs!

I feel so much healthier, but know that I still have quite a way to go before I reach my goal weight (115). When I started this, I used to get really upset at how excruciatingly slow my weight loss was goingsometimes even gaining back a pound or two once in a while. Now I’ve just accepted that it will take time and I have to be patient. It’s not like I gained all of this weight overnightit took years of abusing myself with foodso I shouldn’t expect my body makeover be easy or quick. The great thing about losing weight slowly is that I don’t have any stretch marks of loose skin, which is something that I kind of dreaded (but was willing to accept in trade for a healthier body).

My unofficial goal is to get to -53 lbs by the time I hit my one year anniversary at the end of October.

This was not a product of a “30 day challenge”. This didn’t happen by just doing squats. It took heavy lifting and patience. :)

Why a repost?

Well a lot of people assumed my other progress picture was fake because of the variation in skin tone, the lighting was different or I had altered the “after” image, or stolen it.  So here is a image similar to the pose on the left. My back dimples are visible in both photos. I have some cellulite still, but I have reduced it greatly and improved the shape of my booty. :)

Don’t think it isn’t possible. Here is proof it can happen. Consistency and patience. Don’t give up :)

No

umm no what?
