Thursday Update - Down a pant size - next goals

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Well I am very excited - I haven't lost much weight yet, but I noticed I was having to hitch my pants up all the time. Decided to try on a pair of 14s and they fit! Yay!

Also, I weighed myself this morning - 189.6 - out of the 190s - Yay!

I am very motivated still. In fact, when I got home from work last night, my DH wasn't home yet. Normally I would think great - house to myself - get to read for a bit. Not last night. Put on my work out clothes and did a work work out. I had set up a bench with weights a couple of months ago, but hadn't used it yet. I actually hadn't done a work out with weights since I tried the gym last January and sprained my shoulder the first work out. It had been weak from a previous injury. Last night I did a full body work out, but just 1 set of 10 reps for each. Start slow and work up. I don't have any cardio machines at home, and the roads are sloppy just now - I live on a dirt road - so I did steps ups on the stairs. Could only go 5 minutes, but its a start.

I have decided to celebrate every success I can. I am adding milestones to my spark page. Also, I will do a progress report each week to show where I am at as far as weight, bmi, waist size and waist to hip ratio. So here is my baseline from when I started or today if I didn't track:
Previous Today Next Goal
Weight: 196 189.6 (- 6.4) 186 (5%)
BMI: 35.8 29.9 (overweight as opposed to obese)
Waist: 40 35
Waist to Hip: 0.89 0.85 (moderate as opposed to high)

Here I go! LOL!

    It feels so good to get into smaller clothes!

    For workouts when it's icky outside, have you ever tried the Leslie Sansone at home walking videos? She has a lot and they keep you moving. I also will march in place while I watch TV to add steps and exercise minutes. I use the same moved she does in the videos.

    Keep up the great work!
