Results?


Hi Guys! I thought it was time to post some results of my "health quest" efforts. I must admit... I've been a bit disappointed in the scale these days. Which is Reason #1 that I'm SO glad I took my measurements when I first started. I can still see visible changes, even if the scale isn't going down as quickly as I want it to. We have all heard the stupid notion that muscle weighs more than fat. Doesn't mean I don't revel in the loss! Which, from the beginning of the year is 15 lbs. lost.

So now the big drumroll please... I've gone down 5 1/2 inches in my waistline! WOO HOO!!! That made me feel awesome... until I measured around my ass. I swear. WHAT does a girl gotta do around here to loose some of the junk in her trunk! Only rap stars like big booties!!! I've always been a bit of a pear-shape though...That number is a measly 1/2 inch lower than when I started... I'm loosing weight from the top down... which also means that "tha sistas" aren't as full as they were in the beginning either. I've got to be honest here though... The size of the rack never really bothered me much... except when I was breastfeeding and they were bigger than my head. I'm sure dear husband is a bit disappointed though... :-/

I will be trudging along and focusing more of my efforts on strength training and stretching. I've become quite addicted to the elliptical these days. *gasp* Can you believe I just wrote that??? Seriously though, it doesn't feel like I've started my day until I've had my oatmeal and put in 30 minutes of sweat inducing cardio. Then I can shower up, put my face on, and wear some of the new clothes I've had to buy!

Way to go! You are inspiring. Remember that even if it takes longer to see your results you are "fixing" your body. Blood pressure, diabetes, cancer all of which come for inactivity. So keep it up girl. Maybe someday soon I can get as motivated as you!

I am so going to measure myself first thing in the morning! I just met my first weight loss goal and am back at prepreggers weight. Now the real work comes in trying to keep it off and lose more. Had a few backslide days, after I fell down the stairs KLUTZ but I think tomorrow I'm back in the saddle again or eliptical as it is for me!
