So since I broke the 170's that means it's time for my update photos and I must tell you, I am proud of myself :) I am putting several updates in on here so let's get a move on it!
I've been doing Zumba for the past two weeks and it's awesome. I go in the mornings MWF and it's pretty small, between 5-11 of us and I'm usually the youngest one there. But everyone there is so nice and it's literally all shapes, sizes, and ages! I am now exercising and who knew I'd find some joy in cardio!? LOL. Now, just gotta add some strength training in and I'll be good. At 169.8lbs I assumed I would look a lot differently than I do now. I AM PROUD OF WHERE I AM AND HOW FAR I'VE COME, but I just thought I would look differently lol. My goal weight is 154lbs which is only 15.2lbs (wow, I truthfully cannot believe I am down to those last 15lbs... It's unbelievable) but based upon how my body is looking, I feel I have more than 15lbs to lose. So when I get to 154lbs I might change my goal to be lower but at that point I'll be in a healthy BMI and FINALLY in my weight class (the top is 156lbs) so I'll be in the right area regardless! IT'S SO CLOSE I CAN FEEL IT!
So, dun dun dun... let's get to the main event!
Here's my side by sides. Me weighing 203LBS back in May and then me this morning weighing 169.2LBS! (same sports bra, different basketball shorts)
I started a "Jean Challenge" a few months ago and I picked a pair of Jeans that I was able to wear before that just simply didn't fit anymore and then a pair of white shorts (size 10 from Old Navy) I bought a couple of years ago (I never wore them, it was during one of those "I want to lose weight but I'm still going to eat Taco Bell for dinner every day and somehow lose weight" stages lol)
I CAN BUTTON THE SECOND BUTTON (in the first slot) IN THE WHITE SHORTS! THAT'S SO MUCH PROGRESS!!!! SO EXCITED, I SHOULD BE WEARING THOSE BAD BOYS SOON! I was 180lbs in the beginning pictures I believe.
Finally, my collar bone is starting to show all the time and not just when I make these weird poses and squint my eyes!
I'm completely excited and can't believe I actually made it this far. I used to only think about this day and it seemed so far away, yet here I am and I'm so excited.
