Red Hot Mini Challenge Blog

Sunday, July 08, 2012

So I have joined the Red Hot Heartbreakers Challenge with the DONE girls team. We were asked to post a blog for our first mini challenge. First of all the goals I have made for myself are listed below:

Start weight ~230
One Voice (725) ~ 227
Relaxation (8/15) ~ 225
Labor Day (9/3) ~ 222
World Heart (9/29) ~ 220
Total loss aim ~10 lbs

I have been stuck around the 230 mark now since about May and my first goal is to get away from 230 and stay away.

Here is my picture of 230 lbs.

Measurements now:

Waist: 41 inches
Hips: 46 inches
Thigh: 24 inches
Upper Arm: 14.5 inches

Now I want to let you know that recently I have been eating for the body I have right now, but starting TODAY, I am eating for the body that I WANT. I want this for ME but I have two sons that I want to live for, to see them graduate, grow into young men, eventually get married and to see my grandchildren. My parents both died at a young age which meant I was young and I didn't have them around to see me grow into a young adult and watch me do all of my things in life. I want my children to have their Mom with them as long as they can.

I am supposed to also list someone that my goal body. So here she is and I hope one day I get to her size. Robin (my best friend from birth), on the left, is about at the weight I want to be, 150 pounds. The other young lady is my step-daughter, Aurelia.

So this is my first official mini challenge blog for the Red Hot Heartbreakers Challenge.

    Robin and Aurelia both look like fit women. What an inspiration to have someone you know and love as your role model.
