Today was a new milestone for my weight loss. I never thought I’d ever, in my life, be here…but today I stepped on the scale and was down 50 pounds from where I started last year! Holy crap, 50 pounds is huge! I feel SO much better. Better about myself, better physically and emotionally…just all around better. I still have 3 more pounds until I hit my goal weight, but I’m hopeful that I’ll be there by the time we go to Seattle in a few weeks. Normally, I wouldn’t even question it, but I’ll be traveling next week for work, and I always gain weight when I go on work trips. It’s like the stress of working externally, combined with long hours and eating, all contribute to me gaining at least a few pounds. We’ll see.
On top of the weight loss, I decided to take my measurements as well. Back when J and I were doing the “Biggest Loser” challenge in the NL, we took measurements over nearly every thing we could. Biceps, thighs, waist, hips, calves, neck, and chest. This time around, I only took measurements on hips and waist, because I was lazy. That said…I took new measurements today and I was super excited with the results!
Loss So Far
Hips: 7.5 inches
Waist: 10 inches
Body Fat: 12%
TOTAL INCHES LOST: 17.5!!
TOTAL WEIGHT LOST: 50 pounds!!
I plan on doing a “before/after” photo once I reach my goal, which hopefully isn’t that far from now. I’m a little unsure whether I want to post the photo, because it’s me in a bathing suit. I’m shy like that! So yeah…we’ll see. In the meantime, I’ll keep you posted!
