The Numbers...

Sunday, April 06, 2014

I never got around to any sort of finalisation of my Winter challenge results, so here goes:

Starting Weight (1/18) : 165
[5% goal: 8lbs - 157]

1/25: 162
2/1: 160
2/8: 159
2/15: 157
2/22: 155
3/1: 153
3/8: 154
3/15: 152

Data Comparison:

Weight: -13lbs
Neck: -1"
Underarm: -2"
Bust: -3"
Waist: 0/0
Hips: 0/0
Thigh: 0/0
Calf: -1"

So all-in-all, a pretty successful challenge for me!

And going into the Spring challenge, I am down another pound (strangely, considering I had a weekend of being pumped with food by my friends whilst celebrating my birthday!).

As of this Friday (4th April):
Weight: 151
Neck: 14
Overarm: 36
Bust: 39
Waist: 34
Hips: 40
Thigh: 22
Calf: 14

I think it's obvious I need to focus my training on my lower body - there is still far too much hip for my liking!
So over the next 8 weeks I need to lose another 8lbs for the 5% challenge... I have every confidence I can do that.

Something I meant to mark, but have been a bit out of touch so forgot about it: the big step down to below 11 stone. In my head, the ability to say I am 10-stone-something is absolutely priceless.
I realise this means little to those of you not in the UK, but to clarify: a stone is 14 pounds, so I dropped below 11 stone at the beginning of March when my weight was first at 153. It is far too many years since I was this light (I think maybe 20) so it really is a big deal to me. And if I do as well in the next 8weeks as the last challenge, I will be at an easy 9stone and well within a healthy BMI range for the summer... brilliant, eh?!

    Great job on the Winter challenge. I am sure the Spring challenge will be equally successful!
