We've (I've) come to the end of the challenge.
I had a bit of a stressful day yesterday, forgot today was the end of the challenge and I was going to weight and measure myself, and ate too much. So, I was worried when I stepped on the scale and took my measurements.
Here are my results.
My Challenge Goals
Goal 1: Lose 3 lbs.
Current Weight = 138.2
Goal Weight = 135.2
Ending Weight: 133.6
Goal 2: Lose ANY inches
Starting Measurements -- Ending Measurements
Bust = 36.5 -- 36.5
Waist = 34 -- 32
Stomach = 37.5 -- 37.25
Hips = 39 -- 38
Bottom = 39 -- 39
Right Arm = 12.5 -- 11.5
Left Arm = 12.875 -- 11.5
Right Thigh = 24.25 -- 23.875
Left Thigh = 24.25 -- 23.75
Goal 3: Exercise for 15 days of the challenge
My plan is to get to the gym to ride the bike and hopefully do some weights.
Amount Exercised = NONE
For the most part, I'm pleased! Here are some things I've learned or discovered during this challenge --
- Weight Watchers seems to be working for me. Somehow the points are easier to track than calories. But more than that, I feel like I'm really learning what I can and can't eat, getting a better sense of what are "power foods", how much I can eat of something, things like that. But, I still have awhile to go before it becomes second nature and I won't have to actually track points.
- Each day I need to make good choices but if I don't do so well one day, it's not the end of the world.
- I need to exercise. Watching what I eat isn't going to be enough for me to reach my ultimate goals. I think my inches would be less in all areas if I do exercise. Also, I don't FEEL that much lighter and know I will if I exercise.
I'm hoping by Easter to be living in 120-ville and I feel like I'm on my way.
