Ok, here goes....
On the first day of the Summer Sizzle Slim Down Challenge, my measurements are:
Bust - 48
Waist - 43 1/2
Hips - 52 1/2
Thigh 27 1/2
(I still need help doing the upper arm - will get the hubs to do that for me in a bit)
Starting Weight: 232
So, what does all of those numbers look like on a 5' 0" woman?
Well, it looks a lot like this:
Not pretty....but I vow to work on this all summer long (and beyond)....
I am hoping that this challenge brings me (and all of you) more than just weight loss success. Although that is the ULTIMATE goal, I want to completely readjust my mind set about food, and eliminate cravings and basically begin to live the life style of a person who is 40 years old and feels their life is worth living in the best body it can. That body is not the one that is in these pictures - that is for certain.
This challenge will be hard work and I know that I may not enjoy some aspects of it, but that is why I am doing it. It's all about breaking out of bad habits and escaping the comforts of food that are bad for me and the inactive lifestyle I had been leading that became so familiar to me over the years. Time to breakaway from all of that.
So, I will embrace each weekly challenge and hopefully come Sept 2, I will be looking at a 20 pound loss. It's a modest goal - one I think is completely achievable.
I wish each and every one of you the best of luck over the next few months. This is bound to be our best summer yet!
