You Capture/Shapes

You Capture this week is shapes. I thought you might like to see the shapes of my self imposed torture. I have circles and rectangles. I guess I shouldn't really say torture, even though sometimes it feels that way. I made a commitment to changing my lifestyle a few months ago (thanks to the Sisterhood) and I've lost just over ten pounds. I feel really good about this. I have a long way to go, but I think I am off to a good start. If you notice the circles, I am up to eight pound weights. I started out with three pound. In the rectangles, you will see the famous Jillian Michaels from Biggest Loser fame. There are days that I want to reach in that tv and punch her in the face, but she has done a lot for me.



It's time for you to head over to the You Capture homepage and see all the other shapes that people have captured. I'm excited to check it out. There were so many ways to go with this challenge. I want to thank Beth for starting this challenge. I think it has really made me a better photographer. I put so much more thought into my pictures now. It's just too bad that the assignment this week wasn't baseball. I have some great shots from the Cubs game I went to. See you all next week!

  3. Look at you! Combing the Sisterhood and You Capture all in one post. I'm in awe of the 8 pound weights. I could barely make it through with 5-pounders. You're arms must be filled with awesome muscles.

  11. Great pictures of shapes girl, and now you have me curious to watch your workout so I can get motivated. When can I come over for a lesson? Will you be my Jillian? I have 1 year to lose 50 lbs. I really want to do it. I have a bet going with my brother-in-law that I will lose if he quits smoking and he agreed to it. I can't lose this bet, but I know I will feel so much better, bet or no bet. I am so proud of you! I need to get me a Wii Fit. I will put it on my Birthday list.

    P.S. That first picture looks very familiar. Except all Wii stuff is flung about the living room. Ah, the joys of toddlerhood...
