I'm getting psyched. I've lost about 17 pounds, about 5 inches around my waist & another 3-4 around my hips. I'm pear-shaped, and lately my size 20 pants & size 18 tops were getting tight-especially the pants! And now, my 20's are loose-time to dig out my 18's!! Plus, some 14/16 tops that I was busting out of last year now fit comfortably. Unfortunately due to going up & down over the last 5-10 years I have had to purchase a few different sizes of clothes. But, it's actually nice now so I don't have to spend any money until I get below the 18's & 14's.
I'm worried about what things will be like in a few weeks. My friend convinced me to join a weight loss contest at her gym, & the 12 week run is over on April 12. I will still have a way to go, and I don't want to lose the momentum. I started it thinking, I can do anything for 12 weeks, if it sucks, well, it's only 12 weeks! I know my friend will continue supporting me, & I'll keep tracking here on Spark, and continue with my exercise-I want to complete the C25K finally & run a 5K. But my worry is when I no longer have someone to weigh me every week, writing down my number for everyone to see-will I decide the lack of accountability will make it easier to slack off? I am my own biggest obstacle. I want to get rid of those size 18's & 20's for good!
