4 Inches

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

I finally went out and bought a tape measure like I should have back at the beginning of mine and Kristen's personal challenge. I measured my body in the places under the measurements on Spark. The last time I recorded these were 2/16/12. My waist is up 4", my hips 2", my neck, upper arm and calf .5" each, and my thigh 1". How sad!!!!

So far, I've lost 2.4 pounds in my challenge. I need to recommit. So to recap, my rules:

1. 30 minutes of exercise (up from 5 minutes...I don't have time to play around anymore.
2. A salad everyday
3. A piece of produce
4. 10 cups of water
5. Check in with Kristen.

All that's left today is the exercise. I'm going to let you guys know how I fare each day, too, so I can be held more accountable. Here's the photo I took this morning. I started photographing from the side, because it's when I can really see how fat I am.

Now, off to exercise...then bed! I have to get up early.

    That's good motivation! Salads are good, I like mine with a little protein (2-3 oz).....helps me stay full longer. Nuts are good too.

Cutting out sugars (e.g. soda), potatoes, and other starchy foods has helped as well.

Good luck...keep checking works!

    Yay for losing weight on your challenge! If you're like me, the inches will soon be melting off too. emoticon
