Last time I posted a physical progress photo was back in July so I figured it was time to make another comparison, both for personal and blogging reasons.

Patience and hard work really does pay off! Between July and November I have experienced quite the roller coaster. I have made steady progress with my weight loss and toning, I have had hiccups where I have gained a few pounds or “lost” my motivation for a bit, I have had injuries, I have hopped back into my flow, and I have lost it again.
However, I have found that when you “lose it,” you don’t fully lose it. Muscle memory is a wonderful thing so long as you don’t fall off track for too long, and patience can prove that even if you aren’t seeing immediate results, your body is making subtle changes that will eventually add up and both shock and satisfy you.
Between July and November, there were MANY times that I didn’t think that my body was changing enough, or at all. But, despite my periodic shortfalls, it clearly was!
Patience, iago, PATIENCE! (high five if you catch the reference)
