11 7/8" Gone - BLC22 is Awesome

Saturday, August 10, 2013

Last night a friend of mine listened to me whine (no cheese with that please) about being "stuck". Well sort of stuck. I stress ate the other night and when I weighed-in for BLC22 this week, I had gained 1.4 pounds. The good news is that when I weighed-in for the 5% Challenge today, I was back at the same old number - 175 pounds.

So the really smart woman says; "Do you have a tape measure?" Me being me of course I did! She said to take my measurements! And with a really big sigh, I did.

Boy am I ever glad I did! I was amazed to see that I have lost 11 7/8" since the beginning of the BLC22. My measurements were taken on June 4th! Not to shabby! The biggest change was in my waist. I lost 4 1/2" in the waist! I was happy, shocked, dancing a jig and laughing out loud. Diane must have thought I was nuts emoticon

What made things even more real was fitting into my "Old-New" bathing suit. Sound strange? Well, read on. When I bought the bathing suit 5 years ago, I was a size 18W. I went into a local clothing store and asked if the had any bathing suits in my size. He handed me the suit and said this should fit. I got home and tried to put the stupid thing on! Guess what - no go! Then I looked at the size - Size 14!!! I was too ashamed to go back and return the darn thing. Well guess what?! It fits now and it's even a bit loose in certain areas! What a great feeling!

So BLC22, Spies, friends, and the WRJ&G - thanks for all your support and to Diane for insisting the I use that tape measurement!
