Week 11: Spring Into Summer Challenge

Sunday, March 22, 2009

Another week has passed and I am on the 3 month mark! Goooo me. 20lbs in 3 months sounds great. I am 25lbs away from my June 30th goal, and frankly, I'll be happy to be in the 150s by the end of June. 145 is just a number. In fact, overall, I'd like to weigh in around 130 as that would put me as overweight in the BMI factor (which, I find to be a load of crap since it doesn't take account for fat distribution).

To help me launch into my summer goals, I entered in the Spring Into Summer Challenge through the DONE girls group. This comes as BLC is wrapping up. Through that challenge, I lost about 9lbs. Not much, but it kept me active and motivated to stay healthy and complete goals and challenges. Let's hope that this keeps up.

And to keep me motivated, here are my stats:
SW: 171.0
ARM: 12.5 inches
BUST: 37.5 inches (can I make that one bigger?!)
WAIST: 36 inches
HIP: 39 inches
THIGH: 23.5 inches

Here are my before pictures that I took in my favorite swimsuit. Hopefully, by the time the summer rolls by, that swimsuit wont fit.

Yes, I put those out there. I must be brave this week. That, or confident that these big changes will make a large difference in my life. Plus, I love looking at the motivator pages and seeing before and afters. Maybe, I'll be that someday.

No recap this week as I didn't get to do much and didn't change in weight. I had several concerts, a seminar, and a review. Needless to say, I was way too busy to really up my cardio. This week, however, is my last at the high school and then I am on Spring Break. I also have my sister's bridal shower and 2 interviews. Yikes. But, I am going to try to fit in at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day. Wish me luck!
