2 month SP Anniversary - Never Give Up!

Saturday, November 16, 2013

I've now been with SP for 2 months and the stats are looking great! Since I started this journey with SP I have never given up and I don't intend to start quitting any time soon. I'm in this health journey for the rest of my life - a healthy lifestyle is my life!

I have really noticed my body starting to change shape. I've now lost 8.22% of my original body weight!

In Summary in the last 2 months I have now lost in total:

7.5kgs or 16.5 lbs in WEIGHT
22cms or 8.7 inches off my BODY

Breakdown of cms lost in total as follows:

9cm or 3.5 inches off my WAIST
7cms or 2.7 inches off my HIP
4cms or 1.6 inches off my THIGH
2cms or 0.8 inches off my UPPER ARM

I found these next lot of stats very interesting:

5.8 kgs or 12.8 lbs in WEIGHT
12cms or 4.7 inches off my BODY

Only 1.7 kgs or 3.7 lbs in WEIGHT
10cms or 3.9 inches off my BODY

Although my weightloss was so much less in month 2, the amount of cms off my body was almost the same amount as month 1 which is why I have seen my body changing shape and fitting into clothes better etc but the scales are not necessarily moving down as much.

I suspect that is the fat / muscle ratio adjusting itself because I am now working out aerobic + strength training.

Either way, I LIKE IT!

And the best part about all this, apart from the enormous amount of knowledge I've learned about health along the way and the incredible SP friends I've made, is I can't wait to see what my body does over the next month, particularly now since alcohol is no longer part of my diet.

So watch this space!

Here are some reminders from animals on why you should never give up!

Have a great day/night everyone!

    Well, I think you are right, sometimes our body changes aren't that visible in weight more than inches. Being able to see that clothes fit better and our bodies feel & act stronger and are kinder to us. Giving up alcohol? Yes, those can be calorie busters indeed. I rarely drink since alcohol and I don't get on so well together but its a great accomplishment when you are successful and stay on course.

    I'm proud of you. I'm impressed with your pictures. I can't bring myself to take pictures, even just for me privately. That's silly, I guess. Anyway, congratulations. You're doing a great job!! emoticon

    I love the pictures! emoticon Giving up is giving in... to bad thoughts and negative attitudes. Mostly it's giving someone else the power over your life! Keep control and keep on! emoticon emoticon emoticon Blessings, JOY
