Before Cruise Bloat

To the left is me at 8 weeks out! YIKES! I’m gonna have some serious work to do when I get back. I’m hoping Tony has the miracle diet prepared LOL! The one on the right was taken 2-20-09. So I guess i’ve made some pretty good progress in that short time. Who else really eats 35,000 cals 8 weeks out from a show LOL! Oh boy, you’d think i’d of learned my lesson from last year…NEVER! I like to live on the wildside!

Hold on to your hats folks….this is gonna be a bumpy ride!!!

p.s. There is only a 2 lbs difference in these photos(note to self, quit letting the scale effect your mood).



  1. Eve

    You are looking great, April! In the photo on the left you just seem to be glowing! 😀


  2. Becca

    Yeah, I see the progress even though 2 lbs doesn’t sound like a lot. I’ve only lost 9 lbs my entire 12 week diet and look how much diff. it made!
    I can’t wait to see your after pics. NOW GO ENJOY THAT CRUISE and have a glass of wine or 9 for me!

  3. Hayley

    Yep…definitely don’t let the dictate your mood because I see a lot of difference!! You look very lean. 🙂 I’m with Becca – go enjoy your cruise!

    I cannot believe the difference in those two pictures. If you weren’t my twin I’d think you made it up, but I know you better than that. 😉

    Have a great time!

  5. Kellie

    April~~ you look GREAT!!! I can’t believe a 2 lb difference on the scale. Look at the difference in the pictures!! Enjoy yourself on your cruise!! When you come back… I will be heading to Cancun!!!

  6. Jodi Lane

    Yeah, you can tell between those two pictures that they’re not real different, the only real differences is that the left one you are TAN and the right one you’re less TAN…makes a huge difference when I get a tan too–I look ripped with a tan but FAT ASS pale. lol. I’m gonna start tanning actually!!! 😀

  7. Krissa

    Love the new blog background. Very YOU.

    You look great. I can tell the difference in your waist most. You have very smooth looking skin too. Have a great time on the cruise.

  8. April

    I know Kellie! There is a huge difference in the way my clothes fit too! I’ve lost 2″ in my waist and an inch off each thigh and only 2 lbs. Goes to show weight isn’t everything…although i’m aiming for my magic 107 LOL!

    Have a great time in Cancun!!!
