OH MY GOSSSHH!
the above is a summary of my reaction to seeing 149.2 on my mortal enemy (the scale’s) face this morning on maaah threee month SPARKAVERSARY! WOOT WOOT
SO let’s play the numbers game…This brings my total weight loss to………
19lbs!! but mainly…I’m back in the 140s!!! I haven’t seen that number in a LOooooOOOoong time. Wayhey!
Waist: 5.5 gone
Hips: 7 gone (was a bit wowed by that one gotta say…but I have plenty to spare around there!)
Muh thighs: 3.5 disappeared
Upper arm: 1.5 away!!
I can fit perfectly back in to the navy freepeople lacy hookneyetie dress WOOOO
Me jeans be loose (but thankfully still wearable with multiple belts cos I ain’t gotz no monies for the new ones )
I can now zip up the fancy half backless LBD (still a bit conscious on the tum tum so keeping that as a motivational dressy).
I can zip up the gothy ballerina LBD (again tum gazing so still motivational)
I can lovingly gaze at the upcycled coolerthancool Cambridge dress (still afraid to try it on…) but can actually imagine myself wearing it YAY!
I had to put an extra hole in two of my vintage men’s belts I wear around my waisty yup WOOOOO!
(OK for anyone who knows it, I am currently singing ‘Witness the fitness’ by Roots Manuva in my headbrain Yup yup well motivational!!! LOL… yumz ! and if you don’t know it WATCH IT http://www.youtube.com/watch?v
=NDWgtB_MD24 it is Hi-Lar-I-OUS! Laaandan kid!
OK so with that in mind :P
I have walked/ran/stumbled 416.88 miles since I started trackin mahmilez
Moved mah booty in an exercisey fashion for 8,532 minutes
I have burned…weight for it (ha ha I am soooo funny…uch) 31,662 calories! (I find that one a wee teensy bit abstracty mind boggley…movin on…)
Can run faster – I can walk + run = wun an 11 minute mile for a hour (I don’t have a pedometer so this is SP maths).
I heart skipping – short interval skipping for around 40 minmins (inspired by coach Nicole’s skippin vid) while watchin the telly and havin sweat drip in my eyes, but I found a head scarf usable as a sweat band t’other day so WOOO! Lol.
Oh I’ve totalley-cat gotten back to thuh strong lady weights lifting and ST, don’t really know how to gauge that coz I only have a 4kg but its getting plus facile and I do more reps and crunches don’t make me wanna die and end the agony! So Woo bonus!!
Ermm what else… the complimento metre?? I’m not so sure it’s noticeable yet, well I notice, but my mates/colleagues/family wouldn’t be the most…but there’s a hand full which I have been hoarding like Gollum:
My auntie asked me was I a size 8 (that’s US 6 I fink…) I’m not (Obv!)but since she used to work high end boutiqary and was giving me her old vintage duds it was a major complement!
My darling dear dearest Spanish friend Ishmael was bemoaning the fact that he thought my face was getting slimmer and that I must be working too hard. I heart him.
And my beautiful friend Zoe said I looked amazing on sat night (this may have been due to my enormous curlyed out hair distorting the proportions of my body to produce a mystifying and deceptional effect…but puck it! I’ll take it!
But whatever about what anyone else thinks I FEEL MORE CONFIDENT! To me that is the major achievement of the past 3 months (oh and errr I cook every night, thesis is being writtencorrectedReCorrected etcetc vegeruits so on so on 6000 glasses on water an hour). I feel better about myself now, I prefer how I look and I like how clothes are fitting me and I walk confidently with my head up now, AND if that sounds shallow to gach duine on the outside THEN CALL ME A PUDDLE!!
Thank you for listening you are all absolute rockstars XXXL (extra extra extra LOVE)
