Nah, I don't really despise my body that much!
There a lot of work to be done on my thighs, butt & stomach area. My upper body has got some great definition going on already, but my lower body is going to take time & dedication. Have a look & decide for yourself!
Here goes nothing...

Will endeavour to put up pics with better lighting (and model!
) Not the greatest lighting in these, but the camera never lies! My definintion seems to just melt away under the lense...
I'm doing core work to combat my lordosis (pronounced lumbar curve), but if I had started going to the gym a lot earlier than three weeks ago, I could possibly have prevented it.
I've technically been going to the gym for a month, but I was sick the other week with the flu & the gym was out of the question for my health AND other peoples'. I train on a cardio & weights circuit 3 days a week and usually do yoga/pilates 1-2 days a week. I wasn't doing enough lower body stuff, but just did my first targeted lower body workout this morning and it nearly killed me!!!
I'm not looking to attain perfection. Of course it'd be nice to see thighs without a skerrick of fat in the mirror.
But that requires the kind of gung-ho dedication that just isn't that important to me. I don't want to be the weirdo at the table who turns down a perfectly delicious meal because of it's carb/protein/fat ratios, nor do I always want to be the sober person at a party. I also don't have the time to counteract a less stringent diet with more exercise.
Fitness & health is achievable without living on skinless chicken and salad even if the perfect body isn't - and being healthy and happy more important to me than a perfectly toned belly!
