BLC21 Results (Before/After Pix) with Golden Phoenix

Monday, May 06, 2013

I love my Golden Phoenix team! BLC21 was my first challenge with them, as I'd been inactive with SP for about a year prior. I loved the challenges, support, and camaraderie; combined they were very motivational and inspirational. One of the coolest things I got out of this challenge was my new fitness setup of SparkPedaling! (My previous blog talks all about that and has a photo.)

This was a 3 month challenge, during which time I lost 14.9 pounds and 15 inches.
I have some before and after photos. The front view doesn't look very different, but the others show a subtle change. Here they are!

I would like to add that for the before pix, I could barely zip up the pants. I had to lay flat on the bed to get the zipper to go up, and it was still a struggle! They were super tight and I had difficulty moving around in them. For the after pix, they went on with ease!

So, I achieved all of my previously posted SMART Goals!
1. Lose between 4-6 more pounds by April 10th (the final weigh in).
2. The tight jeans in my before photo will fit comfortably at the end of the challenge.
3. I will be happier with who looks back at me in the mirror.

I am looking forward to doing it all again for BLC22, starting in early June. I am also excited about being one of the new co-captains! Meanwhile, some of us are hanging out having fun, and keeping on track, with a GP Spring Break Challenge.

Thank you to all the ladies of Golden Phoenix!!! emoticon
