BBBC Before + After and My Hip T Contest Giveaway!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on June 1, 2009

Copy of Untitled-51 Missed my BBBC Results Part 1?

Taking Before and After pictures is scary enough without having to post them on the internet for all to see!

I hope you guys appreciate this because I was NOT going to do it!!! :D

It takes a lot of guts to see pictures of oneself on the internet…LOL.

So did it WORK? Click continue reading below.

65 Days of the BBBC Challenge did this for me…

BA1 copy

[Please ignore the fake tan in the first pic- I was prepping for my photoshoot at that time! lol]

What I noticed:

  • Smaller and more toned stomach area: Proof that CORE WORK rocks!
  • Toned arms and shoulders (Even though I didn’t see a decrease in arm circumference, I know the arms are much more toned- and that is what matters!)

Let’s ZOOM IN shall we?


And the behind pictures…


What I noticed:

  • Toning of the back: In the before picture you can see a bit of extra skin in the crease area, but in the after picture it is gone.
  • Back of my legs and butt area have firmed up
  • Bikini top also seems to fit better (the strap doesn’t dig in as much).

I am REALLY happy with these results– especially in my stomach area. Core work is the BEST!

I am so glad I took these pictures because I honestly had no idea that my body had changed so much. I am still quite amazed that just a couple strength exercises each day can make such a difference.

I also think that adding the Shred over the last couple of weeks has helped too! I am going to continue to do the 30-Day Shred because I really enjoy it! I will probably try to squeeze it in twice a week or so.

Also- BBBC participants: Don’t forget to send me your final results! :) [email protected]



Look what the awesome ladies of Hip-T sent me!


A beautiful Black Lace Hip-T!


I just love it!

Many of my shirts are too short (I have a long waist) and I find the My Hip T provides just the right amount of length.

It is SUPER slimming in the waist area too! I find it kind of sucks everything in.


The ladies of My Hip-T want to give one lucky reader a chance to win one of their beautiful designs!

To enter for a chance of winning a My Hip-T:

  • Visit the super cool Hip T website and check out all their funky designs!
  • Leave ONE comment on this post
  • Link back to this contest and receive another entry!
  • Winner will be chosen at random
  • Contest is open to anyone in the US or Canada
  • Contest closes Wednesday June 3rd at 4pm EST!

Goodluck! :)

Ok off to write my exam! Hopefully cramming works- I sure did it enough in university! lol.

Tonight I will be answering your most burning question:

Will I be doing a summer installment of the BBBC?

You look FABULOUS! thank you for sharing the pictures. I am officially inspired to get back into my strength training and core work


Katrina (gluten free gidget) June 1, 2009 at 12:07 pm

Impressive my friend!


Holly June 1, 2009 at 12:08 pm

Yet another reason to keep up the workouts :) [I thought it was cute they used the term ‘glow’]

Wow I love this thanks for sharing! ~A


Laura E June 1, 2009 at 12:13 pm

Thanks for the opportunity. I really like the Zebra Print one.


amie June 1, 2009 at 12:17 pm

you look great in both pictures…so jealous! I’m loving the Hip-T’s I want to buy one but would be cool to win!


Nicole June 1, 2009 at 12:19 pm

I was always wondering how you were so tan! I live in Florida and I’m much whiter than you lol.


Kayzilla June 1, 2009 at 12:20 pm

Congrats on your fantastic results! ^0^ You worked really hard, and it really shows!!

You lucky duck! I had my eye on one of those black lace ones. Or the white lace one. Ahhh I just love lace things, and things with lace that cover my crack = Major win in my book. XD


Amy June 1, 2009 at 12:20 pm

Ooooh la la.. sign me up! :)


Angie June 1, 2009 at 12:20 pm

AHH! They are SO CUTE. I need one stat, I think! And you’ve definitely inspired me to crank up some core work this summer- you worked hard for that amazing stomach, congrats!


Steph June 1, 2009 at 12:23 pm

I love the idea of the Hip T’s! I’ve never heard of them before, but I often layer a tank top under my shorter shirts.


Dotsie June 1, 2009 at 12:27 pm

You look great! I cand definitely see a difference–but you look great in both sets of pictures-before and after! YOU GO (GLO!) GIRL! :-)


Nicole June 1, 2009 at 12:29 pm

Btw, you look great, of course!


Leila June 1, 2009 at 12:30 pm

majah props Angela, not only on the results, but posting the pics too. You look (and looked) amazing.

P.s. made a test batch of the mini doughnuts this weekend and my family was blown away. Thanks for the great recipe.

now off to figure out which colour Hip T I’m going to get.


Mara @ What's For Dinner? June 1, 2009 at 12:31 pm

A) You look AMAZING!!!
B) I totally need the white hip-t!! Will be linking later!! Don’t forget to enter MY contest! It’s the last day! (Ange, would you mind linking??)


Sam June 1, 2009 at 12:33 pm

Congratulations on all your hard work paid off. You look great!

Ever since you introduced me to the Hip-T design I’ve been wanting to find one. I would love to get the chance to try one out for free.


Allison June 1, 2009 at 12:37 pm

Wow! Your core looks awesome (before and after! :D )

I think the Hip-T is an awesome idea – I think I’ll have to get one whether or not I win – I have a long torso too, and my shirts are always too short!


Sara June 1, 2009 at 12:37 pm

You can definitely see a difference. Hard work does pay off.

I really like the white hip-t, I could wear it with so many things!


Natalie M. June 1, 2009 at 12:38 pm

You look ferosh Angela!!! Your BBBC has definitely helped me incorporate some moves into my workouts.. I may be bikini ready next year.. this year would be pushing it LOL

Thanks so much for sharing your photos!


SweetKaroline June 1, 2009 at 12:40 pm

never heard of the hip-t before…sounds super for us long waisted gals! I’m always finding myself searching high and low for t- shirts that are long enough not to show belly haha.

P.s. you look great, both before and after pics, you look awesome!


Run Sarah June 1, 2009 at 12:42 pm

You look amazing – congrats! :) That hip-tee sounds awesome, I have a proportionately longer torso too so I find shirts can be too short.


Jess June 1, 2009 at 12:43 pm

I love the Madrid one! Fun idea – I never would have thought to create something like that!


cathy June 1, 2009 at 12:43 pm

You look amazing Angela! Good work :) I wanna try the shred soon. I like the looks of the Sassy Prints – Dot 2 Dot hip-ts, but i would probably go for white or black to go with many things.


The Running Yogini June 1, 2009 at 12:43 pm

Wow! Great job :-) I totally need to get my rear in gear! That shirt looks awesome! I LOVE long shirts, but I actually have a short waist… I guess it works for anyone :-)


Susie June 1, 2009 at 12:44 pm

Congratulations on the results!! You look fantastic as always. The HipT is such a neat concept. I`m crossing my fingers!


TanyaS June 1, 2009 at 12:45 pm

Amazing results, good on you!

I’m in love with anything that promises to “hug things in”!


Shari June 1, 2009 at 12:45 pm

Congrats on the great results!

Hip T is such a great idea.


Brooke June 1, 2009 at 12:47 pm

Congrats on the BBBC results! its so inspiring to see pics and know that it works. it gives us all hope. I love the hip-t’s and hope to get to try one soon. Darn those low wasted jeans.


Katrina (gluten free gidget) June 1, 2009 at 12:48 pm

BTW: you got a GF Gidget shout out!


Georgia June 1, 2009 at 12:49 pm

I want a hip t! I don’t want to share my crack (ha!).
I also felt like my arms made a huge difference but my measurement is still 11′ too.. But I feel like they’ve changed so much!


Susan June 1, 2009 at 12:50 pm

lots of hard work, but you look great! and so do those Hip-T’s!


Sarah June 1, 2009 at 12:50 pm

Wow! Check out those abs! You look great Angela. Congrats on the amazing work.


Jess June 1, 2009 at 12:50 pm

Ohhh the Hip T is very cool! And it looks like all your core most definitely paid off!


Criztawl June 1, 2009 at 12:53 pm

Wow, the differences in your before and after for the BBBC are amazing!!!!

The Hip T’s are really cute, I too have a long torso and find that some of my tops just seem to short.

I’ve made a shout out on my blog about your giveaway!!


Steph June 1, 2009 at 12:53 pm

Lookin’ good! I must admit that I was skeptical about how much progress could be made with only a few exercises a day… but now I regret not joining in with this challenge!!! I think it would be great to leave all of the exercises that you did posted somewhere on your website so that those of us who did not participate could still do it if we wanted to!


Dana June 1, 2009 at 12:57 pm

I love the dot 2 dot hip-t! Thank you for the opportunity!


shannon June 1, 2009 at 12:57 pm

OMG you look great! I want your abs!


Christine June 1, 2009 at 12:58 pm

Your website has helped me more than you could ever imagine! You are a great role model and I love reading your blog each day [more like several times a day!] :)


Laura June 1, 2009 at 12:59 pm

You have inspired me to get moving, I’ve gotta be in a bikini in about 3 weeks. Love the Hip Tee!


Marcy June 1, 2009 at 1:04 pm

I like the “original” Hip T but the “Basics” are good too.

Great giveaway!!


Phoebe June 1, 2009 at 1:07 pm

Those Hip Tees are adorable! I like all of the lacey ones – so cute. they are definitely slimming as well.


Red Head, Yellow Dog June 1, 2009 at 1:08 pm

Very awesome! and I love the giveaway!


Jess M June 1, 2009 at 1:12 pm

Wow, impressive results, congrats! But you looked awesome before :) Good luck on your exam Angela! I would love to win a Hip-T.


Shelly June 1, 2009 at 1:12 pm

You look wonderful!
I would love to win a HIP-T b/c the muffin top area is my biggest problem. Even when I don’t have one, I am constantly worried that the waist band of my pants is sticking out and making it look like I have one. I am also super obsessed with my shirts being just the right length.


Trisha June 1, 2009 at 1:19 pm

You look so toned – Great pictures! Those Hip-T’s look like such fun!


Leah @ Simply Fabulous June 1, 2009 at 1:20 pm

You don’t have to enter me in the contest.. just wanted to say you look great! :)


Laura S June 1, 2009 at 1:20 pm

I love the idea of the Hip-T!Awesome job with the core workout! You look awesome!


e. June 1, 2009 at 1:21 pm

Yowza! You are brave to post pics in a bikini on the internets, but you look fab!

How often do you think you can do core work? Same rules apply as regular crunches — don’t work them two days in a row?

Okay, I’m off to post a link to this contest on my resurrected blog!


Krista June 1, 2009 at 1:22 pm

These have got to be the coolest things ever! I really like the lace in the original ones although some do have some pretty funky patterns!


Alison June 1, 2009 at 1:26 pm

What a cool idea. So many of my shirts are too short. I love the lace too.


MaryBe June 1, 2009 at 1:27 pm

Wow you look even more awesome-er! (I love to make up new words!)
To lose that much off an already small waist is amazing.


Mallory June 1, 2009 at 1:27 pm

I have the SAME problem with the long waist + short tops!

I think the black one would go with more of my shirts… but if I win I’m sure I’ll be hooked on them and buy a few more in different colors :)


Jessica June 1, 2009 at 1:35 pm

You loow awesome in you rbikin – go you! I’d love to win the Hip-T, thanks for the offer.


brandi June 1, 2009 at 1:36 pm

awesome results! you can definitely tell a difference in your stomach. I hope there’s a summer one – I need to be better about it :\

I love the hip-t in just black or gray – that would be so nice to have with some shirts I love but that are just a little too short.


Jess June 1, 2009 at 1:38 pm

You look great, missy- both before and after! Thanks for having the nerve to share the pictures. :)

I’m really excited about the Hip-T giveaway since I love the layered look but am often over warm down here in good ol’ FLA. Be on the look for a link back in my post this afternoon!


Sara June 1, 2009 at 1:38 pm

I’d love to win one of those! I hate when my shirts are too short. Also, thanks for sharing your pictures. I didn’t do the challenge, but I’m thinking of starting it now!


Liz & In The Skinny June 1, 2009 at 1:40 pm

Impressive photos!
I would love to win one of the Hip Ts. I would wear it all the time! I’ll link back to the contest tonight.


nicole June 1, 2009 at 1:41 pm

I love the idea!!!! My shirts always seem too short for me. This would totally help the problem and look fashion forward as well.


Mary June 1, 2009 at 1:45 pm

Outstanding results! I didn’t follow the plan (started reading your blog only a few weeks ago) but I’m thinking about going back and using it:)

I have the same problem as you…too long of a waste and shirts that are too short! I would love to have a Hip-T.


Heather June 1, 2009 at 1:48 pm

Wow, that is SO impressive Angela. You should be so proud at yourself for what you’ve accomplished! CONGRATS!!

ADORABLE shirt! I’d love to win one! I’ll link back on my blog tonight. :)


LESLIE June 1, 2009 at 1:48 pm

i love this product. such a good idea.
i find myself always having to layer because shirts arent long enough, but that always adds more fabric to my outfits making me look ‘bigger’ sometimes.

i would love to try this!



Amy June 1, 2009 at 1:50 pm

I would love the Hip-T!

Thanks for doing the BBBC, I really enjoyed it even though I didn’t do before and after measurements or pictures. I would love to keep doing it over the summer!


Recipes for Creativity June 1, 2009 at 1:50 pm

Awesome! You look great, even though you already looked wonderful to start with!


bobbi June 1, 2009 at 1:51 pm

great job girl, you look awesome!


Taylor June 1, 2009 at 1:52 pm

Wow such a difference – you look great – even in you’re before picture!! Those hip-T things look perfect. I love the long shirt look (it really leans you out!). I may have to invest in some.


Jessie June 1, 2009 at 1:56 pm

Hip-T, Hip-T, Hip-T!!!


Jennifer S June 1, 2009 at 1:58 pm

wow, great results!! I love those hip-t’s!


Lindsay June 1, 2009 at 1:58 pm

great job on all your improvements, I love taking before and afters of myself…they are so motivating.

I want a white lace hip-T sooo bad!


Susan June 1, 2009 at 2:10 pm

Those are awesome results! I’ve gotta jump on the core work bandwagon I think!!

I would loooove a white hip-T. I like to wear a lot of cardigans, but they’re usually too short. So one of these would be perfect!

Good luck on your exam!


Catherine June 1, 2009 at 2:12 pm

wow, you look amazing! very inspirational. and thanks for doing this giveaway. until you posted about them awhile ago, i didn’t know such things existed. what an ingenious invention!


katie June 1, 2009 at 2:13 pm

you look amazing! i think i’ll definitely be going through the bbbc and doing some of the core work exercises, especially if you don’t end up doing a summer version of it.


Tiffany June 1, 2009 at 2:23 pm

wow, you look gorgeous! congratulations on your accomplishment!


Kori (All Things B.) June 1, 2009 at 2:23 pm

You look so fit and healthy Angela! You looked great in the before pics, but your posture is more confident in the results shots! Great work and I’m crossing my fingers for a summer BBBC!!


Maggie June 1, 2009 at 2:24 pm

Nice job on the challenge!

I’d love a tee like that – since I’m tall I can NEVER find tanks that are long enough.


Jen F. June 1, 2009 at 2:27 pm

Way to go Ang!!


Stacey June 1, 2009 at 2:29 pm

I so need one of those for my long torso too.


Emily B. June 1, 2009 at 2:29 pm

Wow, congrats on your accomplishment! You look GREAT.

I’d love to win a Hip-T, my favourite design is the Madrid.


Janette June 1, 2009 at 2:37 pm

Great job, that Hip-T would come in handy for all my short t-shirts that my husband shrunk in the dryer.


Shelby June 1, 2009 at 2:41 pm


You look phenomenal! =)


Ellen @ Peace in Motion June 1, 2009 at 2:47 pm

that zebra print is out of control!


Juie June 1, 2009 at 2:49 pm



I have been searching for the post when yo made the spinach and tomatoe in the saute pan!

Can you please tell me which post!! It is driving me crazzyy!!! LOL.


Kiersten June 1, 2009 at 3:03 pm

Great job with the BBBC! I am glad it paid off for you.

I love those Hip-Ts! They are adorable.


Emily June 1, 2009 at 3:13 pm

Cool giveaway! I’m top-tall also (long torso) so the Hip-T’s would probably be good for me.

I’ll link back from my blog :)


Jenny June 1, 2009 at 3:17 pm

awesome giveaway girl! i definitely have a longer torso than legs so this would be awesome!

congrats on finishing up your bbbc girl! you look awesome.. though you looked great before :)


Tegan June 1, 2009 at 3:18 pm

Great job! The BBBC paid off!

I’d love to try the Hip-T!


Robyn June 1, 2009 at 3:22 pm

You can really notice a different from the back especially. You look great, although you started off pretty great too!

Those Hip-Ts are super cute. I’m just sayin’ :)


Jennifer June 1, 2009 at 3:22 pm

Great results! Now I have motivation to work on my core!


Jodi June 1, 2009 at 3:32 pm

Great job! You look awesome! :)


Sheri June 1, 2009 at 3:38 pm

Ok, first…great results! You look fab! Thanks for sharing the pictures they really do show the changes!

I sure could use a Hip-T! I have some shirts that I do not wear anymore because they are too short! This would work perfect for that.


Gina June 1, 2009 at 3:40 pm

Both your before & after pics look so good! I just found your blog a few days ago, and I’m considering going back through the BBBC Challenge on my own since I can tell from your pics it really worked!

The giveaway looks really neat, as well! Hope I win =P


Sarah the Short-Waisted June 1, 2009 at 3:40 pm

I’m short-waisted, but I STILL have the plumber’s crack problem with my fav jeans. I love the idea!! I’d love the black basic or original!


Sarah the Short-Waisted June 1, 2009 at 3:40 pm

Oh, and I forgot to say how impressed I am with your ab definition!


Stephanie June 1, 2009 at 3:43 pm

You look great! I can really see a difference from the back (not that you had anything to lose!). Would love to win a Hip-T for myself! :P


Anneliese June 1, 2009 at 3:50 pm

Wow! Great job with the BBC :-)

And the Hip-Ts are awesome. I really could use something like this!


Kristen June 1, 2009 at 3:51 pm

Wow! I really hope you continue the BBBC so I can join in and follow. I just started reading your blog and I love it. I really need to work on my core so I’m going to go back through and try some of your workouts! Thanks for the inspiration!


Yasmin June 1, 2009 at 3:57 pm

I’ve never seen these before! Cool!


Abby Tichenor June 1, 2009 at 4:03 pm

I’m so impressed with your blog! Much like my interest and lifestyle – great job!! The hip tee would stretch a clothing budget to include maybe some older tops and tanks i have that i didn’t want to get rid of!


chanturtle June 1, 2009 at 4:10 pm

omg you loook amazinger!!1


Vanessa @ Last Night's Leftovers June 1, 2009 at 4:11 pm

I don’t know what you were worried about…you look great before AND after! I can definitely see the results of all that hard work though. Great job!


Eve June 1, 2009 at 4:12 pm

Wow, Angela! You look amazing, I am so jealous of your flat stomach, I hope mine can look like that soon!! You also got me onto the Green Monsters! All I can say is I love them!! I can’t go a morning without them now! Keep up the excellent work – your blog ROCKS!!!!



Jenn June 1, 2009 at 4:14 pm

wow your stomach didn’t even look bad before but now its supper flat! I think I need to up my core exercises! I haven’t been following your BBBC very closely and I was wondering did you change your diet any or you just did more strength exercises? Those are some amazing results, great job!!


Niki (The Vintage Artist) June 1, 2009 at 4:29 pm

You look even more amazing Angela! Totally inspiring. xx


Amy June 1, 2009 at 4:33 pm

This is awesome. Your abs are ROCKIN!! That is amazing. Now I wish I would’ve done the BBBC :(. I’ve been following your progress but didn’t do it. If you do a summer installment, I think I will!! :)

I have the same problem with shirts…I am tall and a lot of shirts aren’t long enough; at least, not as long as I’d like them! The Hip-T is super cute!!


Clare June 1, 2009 at 4:47 pm

Congrats on the results – you’re hard work really shows!

I’d love to win a hip-t….I think I’d get the most use out of a white one. Thanks for sponsoring this (and for being awesome, as usual)!


Shannon (The Daily Balance) June 1, 2009 at 4:49 pm

you look FANTASTIC! Sign me up for a summer installment! – if you do it ;)


kristin June 1, 2009 at 4:50 pm

yowza!! your abs look amazing! i should’ve done the BBBC :(


Rachel June 1, 2009 at 4:51 pm

You look awesome!! Thanks for informing me about the Hip-T. I love the idea and want one now!


Helena June 1, 2009 at 4:52 pm

that hip-t is such a good idea! Sign me up for the contest!
I’m also doing a before and after thing on my blog, but the after’s won’t be posted until the end of the summer :)


veronica k June 1, 2009 at 4:57 pm

You look great! NIce work!


Serena June 1, 2009 at 5:18 pm

I am new to your blog and am enjoying your posts and recipes too! I have been inspired by your green monster’s and have been making my own. I also tried the 10 minute yogurt with Almond milk and strawberries. It turned out well. It was a little more runny than the Trader Joe’s yogurt, but it tasted delicious! Plus, I put it in a green monster with tons of spinach, half a frozen banana, and some frozen mango cubes also from TJ’s. Yummy!


Hayley June 1, 2009 at 5:23 pm

Angela, you look amazing! Great job on the BBBC Challenge! Are you planning on doing a summer BBBC edition? That Hip-T is super cute, would be so happy if I won one! I also have a longer torso; it’s funny but I never connected the two together as to why my shirts were always too short. I had previously been blaming it on the manufacturers. haha.


KatieTX June 1, 2009 at 5:23 pm

Don’t you love spray tans!!? Planks are so amazing.Great job!


Kristen June 1, 2009 at 5:27 pm

What a fun concept! I love the Madrid print Hip T. :-) And congrats on the BBBC success!


shannon June 1, 2009 at 5:41 pm

You look so good.

Love the Hip-T. :)


Eat, Live, Love, Dream June 1, 2009 at 5:55 pm

You looked amazing before, but you look even more amazing now!! That is so awesome! So happy for you! very very inspiring:)


Katie T June 1, 2009 at 6:05 pm

Ditto the above post – you look even more incredible now! And I applaud your courage for putting those up for everyone to see. Thanks for being such a constant source of inspiration!
P.S. Now I really want one of those Hip-Ts…I have a super long torso too, so I know what you’re talking about!


Jessica June 1, 2009 at 6:09 pm

you look great!! i really hope you do another challenge because i really want to tone up for summer. oops, its kind of already here isnt it??

loving the hip-t. such a great idea.


Danielle J June 1, 2009 at 6:16 pm

Congrats on your hard work paying off! Seeing results makes it all worth it.


stephanie p June 1, 2009 at 6:59 pm

I would love to win a black hip-t – it would come in handy for work!


Cate June 1, 2009 at 7:09 pm

Great job on the BBBC. You look awesome (you always do).

I want a Hip-T! I will probably want a couple (when one’s in the wash). I will link back later.


melissa June 1, 2009 at 7:16 pm

You look great! Core work is the best!


Barbara June 1, 2009 at 7:16 pm

Ok..I’m buying a Hip T regardless and that would make a killer gift for friends.

Great job on the BBBC!



Amy June 1, 2009 at 7:28 pm

You look amazing! I’m inspired to go shred right now. I definitely want to get a Hip T. Those are so cool!


Anne P June 1, 2009 at 7:48 pm

lookin hot! nice work :)

and i would love one of those shirts!


Sarah June 1, 2009 at 7:57 pm

Your before was gorgeous, and I wasn’t sure how you could possibly look any better. I love how you just look more toned now.


Diana June 1, 2009 at 8:05 pm

You look GREAT!
Perhaps I will take part in the summer edition – if there is one!?


Jaime June 1, 2009 at 8:22 pm

what a genius idea! hope i win:)


Becky June 1, 2009 at 8:25 pm

You look awesome! I would love a Hip-T, I have an obsession with all things lacy ;)


Sara B. June 1, 2009 at 8:30 pm

I have a really long waist too and would love a Hip-T :)


Kris June 1, 2009 at 8:35 pm

You look AWESOME!!!! As always though :) Just a bit more toned. Isn’t it amazing how just a bit of strength training can make a difference? Way to go!

I love the black Hip-T….I want it! I think it would go with most things I wear!


Susan June 1, 2009 at 8:36 pm

Alison June 1, 2009 at 9:09 pm

I love the layered look you can get from the hip-t, such a great idea!


Brooke June 1, 2009 at 9:15 pm

I need one of these so badly. I have a very long torso and my shirts always ride up. Not pretty.
Wow, your stomach is impressive!


Anne K. June 1, 2009 at 9:20 pm

You look awesome! Those hip-T’s are a great idea :D


Anne K. June 1, 2009 at 9:21 pm

Callina June 1, 2009 at 9:25 pm

Just found your blog; love it and I love the Hip Ts–I have a long torso and it’s so hard for me to find shirts that are long enough, so I might be ordering some of these….awesome!


Ris June 1, 2009 at 9:32 pm

you look awesome!

and the hip tees look sweet … i have a long torso too, my sis and i are the same height but her legs are 4 inches longer!


Carolyn June 1, 2009 at 9:48 pm

If I don’t win one I am going to have to purchase a Hip-T soon. They are less expensive than I thought they would be, awesome idea too!

I hope you do a summer BBBC, your results are nothing short of FANTASTIC!


Katie June 1, 2009 at 9:51 pm

Elizabeth Edith June 1, 2009 at 10:30 pm

1. You look great! I wish I’d started reading your blog when the BBBC challenge started :-(

2. The giveaway sounds cool and I linked back to it.
Happy Monday!


april June 1, 2009 at 10:46 pm

Your abs look amazing!! I wish I could get those results in a few moves a day! lol. I’ve never seen those Hip-Ts before here in New Mexico..I’d love to be entered to win!!


Megan June 1, 2009 at 11:43 pm

Your body is rockin’!!

I swear by planks! They just do wonders for your core!


Brittany June 1, 2009 at 11:53 pm

Your before and after pictures are awesome!!

I wanna win the Hip-T, it looks great on you.


ashley (sweet & natural) June 2, 2009 at 12:08 am

Ow ow! Lookin’ good Angela!

I’m obsessed with that Hip-T! I always layer to make my top longer. It is perfect for me!


Julie Dawn June 2, 2009 at 12:09 am

Great work! I will join the summer BBBC if you have one.


Help Meghan Run June 2, 2009 at 12:09 am

So cute! :) I’d love one.


Nicole June 2, 2009 at 12:09 am

Awesome results!! You did great!!


Karin June 2, 2009 at 12:27 am

This Hip-T looks awesome! Nearly as awesome as you do ;-) Congrats on your results – very inspiring!


Jenn (eating bender) June 2, 2009 at 12:33 am

OMG, Ange – you look AMAZING! I am so inspired by you because I could not get up the courage to post my before and after pics when I did P90X. Kudos, my friend!! I can totally see a difference (though you look great in both – I mean that).

The Hip-T looks so cool! I have the same issue with shirts, so that would be perfect!


Arwen June 2, 2009 at 12:42 am

Wow impressive Angela! You have inspired me to try BBBC.

I have loved the idea of owning a Hip-T since I saw it on your site. Hope I win!


Eva June 2, 2009 at 12:43 am

You look great Angela. I will join the summer BBBC if you have one.


Liz June 2, 2009 at 12:56 am

Looks like the BBBC did it’s job… looking good. And thanks for the Hip-T giveaway, those things sound awesome.


Lisa June 2, 2009 at 1:22 am

I love that the Hip-Ts add the look of a layer without bulk. I hate that bunched up feeling and I’m always hot, so actual layers don’t work for me!


Milca June 2, 2009 at 2:23 am

You’re body looks amazing. I can absolutely see the definition. I need a Hip-T, so I hope I win.


Lisa June 2, 2009 at 7:35 am

Super cute T!!!! What a great idea.


leatitia June 2, 2009 at 8:27 am

I’d love to win, it looks so cute! :)


D June 2, 2009 at 8:46 am

I had never heard of these shirts, but how wonderful. It gets so old seeing ladies buttcracks and g-strings sticking out.


Amanda June 2, 2009 at 8:52 am

Amazing results Angela :)


Dana June 2, 2009 at 9:00 am

Great results!! The hip-t’s are awesome, I will definitely be buying one if I don’t win one!


Brianne June 2, 2009 at 9:18 am

You look so great!


Caitlin June 2, 2009 at 9:50 am

wow-you look so great!!


Diana June 2, 2009 at 9:51 am

I would love to win a Hip T! I have the unfortunate “problem” of having a little waist and womanly hips, so I have to buy pants to fit my hips and they end up being to big in the waist. I HATE belts, but I think the Hip T would do a great job of helping keep the waist of my jeans up!


carolinebee June 2, 2009 at 9:56 am

You look great ang! Ha love the fake tan :D Those hip t’s are so cute, I stick with Express they make the longest shirts!


Kimberly Lee June 2, 2009 at 10:05 am

You look amazing! I would love to win a Hip T. I too have a long waist and find that many of the shirts that I buy are too short to wear with my jeans/pants/skirts. You’ve shown me that the Hip T can be the solution to that problem.


Ruby Red Vegan June 2, 2009 at 10:07 am

Hey Angela! Congrats on the BBBC results! I wish I could create a little room for you in my apt. and you could come be my personal trainer for a few months! :)

Oh my, the Hip T’s are so cute! I can’t decide whether the pink, white, or black is my fave – but I love all 3 of the lace ones!


lora June 2, 2009 at 10:16 am

omg love this giveaway! And your results are awesome! you are so brave for showing us pics of yourself–I am way to nervous to just be in a bikini hahaha



Julie June 2, 2009 at 10:16 am

love the hip t :) sounds like it would be awesome for summer!


Emily (Healthy Fit Mama) June 2, 2009 at 10:20 am

Wow – those are come great results! Way to go!


Ashley June 2, 2009 at 10:23 am

Seeing your pictures was so motivating to me. My core is an area that I have always needed to work on (strength wise and toning) but I have always shyed about from it. Isn’t it funny how we don’t want to work on the things we need to do most?

A couple of weeks ago I signed up for boot camp and I start next Monday – so excited and scared! After seeing your pictures I felt really inspired to kick start things and do some core yoga last night. I had tried core yoga previously, I turned off the podcast about 5 minutes in because “it was too hard”. Last night I persevered and stuck with it and it felt really good!! It was tough, but I was happy to challenge myself.

Thanks for such an inspiring post :)


Low June 2, 2009 at 10:36 am

You seriously look amazing in both of those pics! You are certainly brave for posting them, but looking great is a great way to find courage!

I would love a summer installment as I wasn’t around in the blogosphere to catch the first one!


Talia June 2, 2009 at 10:37 am

Those are awsome! I love the idea! I have a super long torso!


Erika June 2, 2009 at 11:32 am

Having recently found your site, I am now considering joining the Green Monster movement, lol…and am also considering more raw diet foods. As for the Hip T, I would sooo love this. In my job, I have to be ale to raise my arms and keep my belly covered for professionalism, and I have such an issue finding shirts long enough but still flattering. Plus, it would be seriously nice to win something once in my life, lol. Keep up the blog…lovin it :) HUGS


Maddy June 2, 2009 at 11:46 am

OMG look how toned you are! Go girl! =)

I would LOVE to win the Hip-T. Ever since I saw them on your site I’ve been thinking about ordering one!


Enrica June 2, 2009 at 11:49 am

I absolutely LOVE the lace ones. So girly!!


Kel June 2, 2009 at 11:56 am

I think I might buy a couple of these Hip T’s. I am tall, so I have the hardest time covering up! Thanks for the link and way to go on your BB results!


Lauren June 2, 2009 at 12:06 pm

what a cool idea! i always have this problem (with tops being too short) and end up having to either give the shirt away, or layer!


Lindsay June 2, 2009 at 3:21 pm

Wow, you can really see a difference in your midsection – amazing how just a few exercises a day can make such a difference! I would love to see a summer BBBC, since I missed much of this one. :)


jvegegirl June 2, 2009 at 4:40 pm

I’d love one of these. And you look awesome in both pics by the way!


Nicole June 2, 2009 at 5:42 pm

I’d love one of these cute shirts! I loveee the zebra one (:


Anna June 2, 2009 at 6:00 pm

You look AMAZING!! Looks like all the hard work paid off.

The Hip Ts are such a great idea!


Jen June 2, 2009 at 7:54 pm

Love the idea of the Hip-T – Definitely important when you don’t want that underwear to show!!!


Heather(OHIO) June 2, 2009 at 8:04 pm

Holy cow! You look amazing and im very proud of where you have came from. Thanks for sharing the pics.
The Hip-T is just what i need, lol.


JJ June 2, 2009 at 8:36 pm

Wow what a great invention; the hip T! I would love to try it on


CATIEDIDIT June 2, 2009 at 9:09 pm

I would love a hip-T!! It would be fun to have a unique color to spice up an outfit.

And I would also love to look like you do in your “before” pics!!


Menden (Skinny Menny) June 2, 2009 at 9:43 pm

Hey Angela!

You look great in your pics…you go girl!

I am coveting a hip-t….I think it’s the best invention ever :)


lauren alysse June 2, 2009 at 9:55 pm

angela you look incredible! you’ve def. inspired me to get my butt into gear :)


Courtney June 2, 2009 at 11:37 pm

What a great giveaway! I’ve wanted one of those ever since I saw it on your blog.


jen June 3, 2009 at 12:03 am

congrats and way to be dedicated! :)


Abbie June 3, 2009 at 12:41 am

Hi From a new reader :) Your pics are very inspiring! Thanks for offering this fun giveaway too!


Screamin' Mama June 3, 2009 at 8:29 am

I love the black with lace. I’m sure it’ll go with everything. Thanks for the giveaway! Keeping my fingers crossed.


Jen June 3, 2009 at 8:44 am

Love it!


Hyedi June 3, 2009 at 9:35 am

I really think I’m going to do the BBBC this summer along with Shred! Love the Hip-T, it’s such a good idea!


Bethany June 3, 2009 at 10:31 am

I LOVE that tee and would be thrilled to win one! Thanks for the opportunity!


Jessie June 3, 2009 at 11:59 am

the zebra print is so cute, what a great idea!


Michele June 3, 2009 at 12:11 pm

Both your before and after pictures look great. Thanks for the opportunity to win a Hip-T.


Kelly June 3, 2009 at 12:55 pm

Thanks for sharing your before and after photos and congratulations on your results! Do you have a post that lists what exercises you did during the challenge? I’d love to incorporate some into my own exercise routine.


chippednailsandall June 3, 2009 at 2:18 pm

those hip-t’s are so cute and comfy looking :)


Anna June 3, 2009 at 2:58 pm

I love those Hip-Ts! Your pics look great!


Carrie H June 3, 2009 at 3:45 pm

You look great and so does that tee! Thanks for the contest. :)


Sara June 3, 2009 at 4:27 pm

You look Amazing!! Not that you didn’t in the beginning photo ;)
I checked out the Hip-T site cuz I liked yours that they sent you…. it is THE solution I need for all my short shirts! I am a big fan, out of necessity more than anything else, of wearing tanktops under my shirts. If a hip-t slims, even better!!I think one in black or white would be perfect for everyday – because I would wear this a LOT!! Thanks for the contest entry :)


Heather June 3, 2009 at 6:26 pm

Hey Ang, what size did you get? I ordered a Hip-T before and it ended up being too big….wondering if you should order down since they stretch or not. I was in between the sizes, so I went up.


Christina June 4, 2009 at 2:48 am

You look gorgeous!


alta June 4, 2009 at 4:38 pm

Wow, takes lots of guts to post bikini pics of yourself on the internet! You look great in both, congrats though on the hard work! And I’d love a Hip T!


Fitzalan June 5, 2009 at 4:46 pm

Oh wow….those are some fabulous results on someone who I would say was already looking wonderful.

Maybe I’ll go back and start BBC from the beginning…I wasn’t a daily reader when it began and well, I just wasn’t motivated. But results always give me a nice push in the butt!

Happiness Awaits


Jess June 6, 2009 at 4:55 pm

Wow! Awesome results! You look amazing, but you did before as well!

Those Hip-T’s are neat!

<3 jess


theskinnyplate June 7, 2009 at 5:15 pm

Angela, you looks amazing!! Thanks for all the wonderful recipes and healthy inspirations!! I love your blog and OSG Bakery.


Sarah June 18, 2009 at 4:38 pm

Great job! Wow, it sure makes me wish I’d stuck with it too, haha. In my own time ;-)


matt April 14, 2010 at 5:36 pm

insert flattering but highly inappropriate comment here


elizabeth June 2, 2010 at 9:04 am

you can totally use the hip tee when pregnant (just get larger size) or nursing (to hide the angry red stretch marks!)
