Saturday, December 29, 2012

I joined a health club on 11-14-08 and I have the
starting statistics. now statistics then final goals
Bust-----47 inches 44 / 40
Waist----42 inches-----------36 / 32
Abs------48! inches 41 / 42
Hips-----48 inches-----------43 / 43
thighs---25.5 inches 22.5
arms ---13.5 inches 13
weight --208 pounds 183 final goal 128
i joined Spark people in September of 2008
I quit the "health club" have since joined another.

I had lost 12 pounds prior to starting at this gym and never lost anything while I was working out there. They wanted me on a protein powder diet that I cannot use. Blamed me for my lack of success. I am doing it slower than I want but I had gotten so saggy skinned it was kind of depressing. I should join a team with those who have lost quite a bit and are facing the hugh amount of skin left after the fat is gone. This is way more honest than I want to be but I believe it is accurate as of today.

    I've never lost more than 10 lbs., I know I don't eat the right foods, but even when I was really trying, I always stayed about the same, so maybe this year I will lose enough to worry about the loose skin thing:)

    Ooo no I would never go to a "health club" that insisted you use some "product" to lose weight instead of good old fashioned healthful food! That is ridiculous. Slow and steady wins the race my friend. :)

    As for the skin I wish we could all start up a "excess skin removal" fund and get a little nip tuck because I am noticing some myself. Oh wait that might be just good old fashioned I am 40 and I have wrinkles. ;) j/k. No it is excess skin. Especially around my triceps. I am trying to work it off or at least tighten it up a little. emoticon

    Can't move forward unless you are willing to be honest, even when it hurt. You just took a huge step in the direction of success! emoticon
