A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words




This is ME in this suit 3 months ago. I thought I would look much heavier in today's pics. Outside of maybe a little extra tummy weight (you may notice the suit top doesn't exactly meet the bottom) I think I might actually be thinner. Rejoice! Maybe my weight increase is muscle after all. I cannot even tell you how happy I am that I will finally feel comfortable in my bathing suit this summer.

Mr Furious said...

Hi hottie.

You can be sure my shirt will touch my trunks this summer. At all times...

Mrs. Furious said...

Hey thanks guys!!! :)




Mr F,
"You can be sure my shirt will touch my trunks this summer. At all times"
LOL

katieo said...

1) you look awesome mrs F.

2) Mr and Mrs. F. You say "trunks?" I do too and everyone out here looks at me like, "what are trunks?" Aaron makes fun of me because he swears they're only for describing LITTLE boys swimsuits. Maybe it's MI thing?...
3)The darkness and shadows in the photos add this kid of kind drama that is cracking me up...
4) can you tell i didn't sleep last night?

You look hot! You should be proud! I know you have been kickin' it up with your work-outs! I have gotten back to working out too! I hate summer and not looking good in the suit! Maybe I should go try mine on just to see how hard I do have to work I do not have a tredmill therefore, can't take you up on a challenge with that, but my hubby and I do P90X. Have you ever heard of that! Killer workout!

Cara said...

You are quite the hottie!! :-)

Mrs. Furious said...

Katieo,
Yeah Mr F pointed out that the lighting might be what is making me look thinner. (whatev Mr F)

Trunks. If I over think it then I'm not sure what I call them...

I too got no sleep (2nd night) so I'm kind of mentally unstable my own self ;)

Mrs. Furious said...

Tam-e,
what is P90X? I'll google it.



Thanks again everyone. I honestly was taking the pics assuming I'd look terrible and that it would motivate me to keep going. I really am thrilled that I don't really look different. Anyway I'm hoping to focus on the midsection and be able to see some definite changes in three months.

Robin said...

You look great!! I better get busy so I won't shame myself when I post my bathing suit pics.

Julie said...

You look so good!! What an awesome feeling to like how you look in a bathing suit, huh! Not that I would know:)...yet;)

My Life & Running said...

I think you look amazing! That suit is definitely heaps and loads better than your old ones -wow! ;) Hurry up summer!

workout mommy said...

rock on Mrs. F, you look great! I was just looking thru a catalog of bathing suits and thought "maybe I won't have to go to the pool this summer" (sigh) Your post will serve to re-inspire me! :)

Mrs. Furious said...

I will say kudos to the Athleta bathing suit... since it is made to withstand actual athletics it holds in the tummy really nice and tight!


ML&R,
yes I know... it is 1000x times more flattering... totally worth the extra $!

Mr Furious said...

Yeah Mr F pointed out that the lighting might be what is making me look thinner.

No. That's NOT what I said. You pointed out your collarbone showing up more in today's photo, and I said I think you look the same (great in both) and that the light from the backdoor is highlighting your collarbone...

Mr Furious said...

Katieo-

I don't normally say "trunks" but it made the most sense in that context. I grew up saying "bathing suit" and am now most likely to say "swimsuit."

eurydice said...

looking good mrs. f!

flat lower tummy!

moi.bloggirl said...

You look great in the pics Mrs. F. You should be proud of what you have accomplished.

Mrs. Furious said...

eurydice,
seriously?!?! I really focus on the way my lower stomach dips in at my c-section scar. That is why I got the suit with black bottoms though ;)

Mrs. Furious said...

Thanks again everybody :)

I'm excited to see what kind of changes I can make in the next 3 months!

Southern Fried Girl said...

OMG, if I did not like you, I'd have to hate you a little.

You look FAB.

Torey said...

Ok. looks good in a bathing suit after having two kids AND is nice?

If I didn't know you, I'd think you weren't real.

Seriously, you look awesome!

Mrs. Furious said...

Torey,
I think Heather must have just been sitting there like "these people are cuckoo for coconuts" tonight ;) I think we are a bit of an intimidating troop of freaks. Oh that was excellent when you let "freak" slip out!


and Thanks guys :)

Torey said...

Yeah, I'm a bit over the top. I think I was a hard core interrupter tonight too!!! Haha. . .I didn't mean to call her little boy a freak, it totally came out wrong. And then I got all excited about the carseat thing (which BTW, her's was all wrong!) and Kelly got excited for me too, and then it was all over. i think N might start keeping me in the house more!


And of course, you are a total bad ass in that bathing suit!

emmyjw said...

Fantastic suit,you should be in a catalogue ;) Seriously,you look great and you should be proud!

Mrs. Furious said...

Torey,
dude you should be excited... getting paid more, big discount, and being able to take guppy with you is a BIG deal!

Torey said...

Yay! Thanks!

But, I still won't look that awesome in a bathing suit. And I just signed up for baby swim class. . .hopefully there are old moms in it!

Canteloupe said...

There is little that can add to what's already been said but I gotta say- damn skippy you are ROCKIN' that suit!

michelline said...

Mr and Mrs. F. You say "trunks?" I do too and everyone out here looks at me like, "what are trunks?" Aaron makes fun of me because he swears they're only for describing LITTLE boys swimsuits. Maybe it's MI thing?...

We call them trunks in FL. Or just generically, a bathing suit :)

Danielle said...

You are looking FIERCE in that bathing suit! :)

Jennifer said...

I noticed that your back is definately smaller in the second set of pics. More toned.

Rock on!

eurydice said...

yes definitely - when i gain weight it's always in my stomach first (does that mean i'm an apple too?) so i notice when other people have flat lower stomachs lol.

Tam-e said...

Mrs. F,
Did you ever find out what P90X was? I work out to dvd's. Basically you use your own body weight for some of the exercises, a pull-up bar, and free weights. The work out uses muscle confusion so that your body doesn't plateau from doing the same things over and over. Right now my schedule looks like this:
Mon: chest & back, ab ripper
Tues: plyometrics
Wed:Shoulders & arms,ab ripper
Thurs:Yoga
Fri:Legs & back,ab ripper
Sat:Kenpo(kick boxing)
Sun:Stretch(or rest)
After 3 weeks of this, I do another combo of core synergistics, kenpo, & yoga
After the 4th week I go back to some of the things I did before but change up some of the work outs with new ones.Then by phase 3, every other week you are switching up the workouts.
I hope that doesn't sound too confusing. It is kinda what you do on your inclines. Changing them up so that you aren't doing the same thing all the time.

Mrs. Furious said...

Thanks guys!


Jennifer,
seriously!? That is great! Thanks :)


Eurydice,
yup that makes you an apple.


Tam-e,
That sounds intense! Do you need a lot of floor space?

Tam-e said...

Um...sometimes you need some floor space but that is just when you are doing some lunges and moving with it. I have had to move a chair or what not out of the way but for the most part you stay in one place.
It is quite intense. I love it though. I feel so much better when I work out.

I totally get how incredible this amazing thing is, to feel comfortable in a bathing suit is an wonderful, beautiful thing, truly enjoy it!
