Weeks 2,3, and uh...4--aka "The weeks when nothing happened"

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Week 2: virus

Week 3: wisdom tooth pulled

Week 4: first week of the semester at a new school, and an out of town wedding

Needless to say, I haven't been paying attention to food or exercising. I would say the virus is probably the most responsible for my 4 lb weight loss, but I'll take it.

And just for posterity, and fun, let's go on to the updated measurements:

Starting weight: 281 lbs
Current weight: 277 lbs
Weight +/-: -4 lbs

Waist: 50 inches, -1 inches
Hips: 55.5 inches, same
Bust: 53 inches, same
Arm: 21 inches, same
Thigh: 28 inches, -.5 inches

Inches lost: 1.5

Overall, some progress. Now it is time to take some action, and not hope to continue to passively lose weight. Tomorrow, Jillian...yikes

    Yay for lost inches and weight!!!! I'm sure you'll get back into it soon, just don't let it get you down! :-)

    I don't know how you can do Jillian workouts, from what I heard, they are KILLER! I much prefer my Walk Away the Pounds haha!

    I have been horribly inconsistent with exercise lately. When I was seeing results I was doing cardio consistently. Usually 20-45 minutes on the elliptical (I started lower and worked my way up), 5-6 days a week. I have also tried swimming, which was awesome, for about an hour, 4-5 days a week. I would love to be a runner, but honestly I feel way too big to be comfortable running right now. I'm going to try Jillian Michaels 30 day shred, starting tomorrow. I'll keep you posted!

    Wow that's awesome you're seeing so much progress! Sounds like we are on quite similar paths. I am also getting over being sick and a new semester beginning. Keep your chin up you got this!! What types of workouts do you generally like to do? I've been looking to switch things up a bit in my routine and would love some advice! emoticon
