My Journey into 2011 so far.....

Saturday, January 15, 2011

So far this year has started out well! I am finally coming off of a plateau! Which is really great and shows that persistence pays off!!!! I hope to continue and to finally make it to ONDERLAND in 2011! That is my short term goal to reach! I would like to be in Onderland by my Birthday which is February 20th. That would be the best Birthday present in the world!

I started the year weighing 219lbs. Today I weighed myself and I weighed in at 213.2. So I am down 5.8lbs in 2 weeks! YAY! In my last blog I posted my weigh in's through my time here at spark. February 11th will be my emoticon. Ive definately had my ups and downs in weight loss, but I think that goes for almost all of us! But most importantly I have refused to give up! Its been a long journey, but a good one! I have learned so much along the way. I have made so many awesome and supportive friends here! That keep me going even on my bad days! THANK YOU ALL FOR THAT!!!

I took my measurements the other day also and compared them to my starting ones from Feb 11, 2008. Here is what the difference now is....

Weight on Feb 11, 2008: 240
Weight today: 213.2
***26.8lbs less me!***

My waist 2/11/08: 49 inches
My waist 1/08/11: 43 inches
***6 inches less belly!***

My hips 2/11/08: 52 inches
My hips 1/08/11: 47 inches
***5 inches less hips!***

My neck 2/11/08: 17.5 inches
My neck 1/08/11: 16 inches
***1.5 inches less neck!***

Going to have to find the older measurements for these. For some reason I did not put them on spark tracker!

My thigh 7/11/09: 24 inches (Going to try to find the starting one)
My thigh 1/08/11: 22.25 inches
***? inches less***

My Chest: 3/21/10: 51 inches
My chest: 1/08/11: 48.50

My upper arm: 1/08/11: 13 inches

My calf: 1/08/11: 15.25 inches

I did post these current ones on my tracker so I will at least have these if I cannot find the other ones. I have them wrote down somewhere. If I find them I will post them in another blog. I will also keep you updated on the changes more frequently!

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
