Checking in...

So it is time to check in with my weight loss. In Sept. 2009 when I started this challenge I weighed and measured myself. Here were those measurements

Sept. 2009

weight- 148 lbs
Thighs- 23 in
Hips- 42.5 in
Belly- 36 in
(this was a the muffin top/belly pouch area)
Waist- 30 in

Jan. 2010
Weight- 136 lbs 12 lbs lost
Thighs- 23 in Stayed the same :(
Hips- 41.5 in 1 in lost
Belly-34 2 in. lost- this of course changes after I eat big ;)
Waist-27 in 3 in lost

So I really need to step this up, I just really hate exercising even now after doing it for 4 months. I find myself skipping days because I hate it so much. I just really don't like it and if I could not do it I wouldn't, but I have to get this weight off. I don't want to be as skinny as I was 15 years ago at 120 lbs, but would like to fit into the 5 pair of jeans I have in my cupboard I just can't get myself to throw away. I LOVE THOSE JEANS!
I would love to get down at least 6 more lbs. by summer. Man to be able to wear shorts again and feel good about it.

your running should help. that helped my butt alot. do you have a ball? i have a good 'back of the leg' exercise on there.

Kimi said... proud of you for sticking with it. i have the opposite reaction to exercise. the more i do it the more i become addicted to it. it's the starting it that's hard for me. ha!
