Sigh. and happy dance. 12 weeks of weight loss over!! I am really sick of only posting these pics. Maybe I'll quit talking about this till later this summer when I reach my 30# mark
But anyway, 12 weeks of weight loss completed. So much harder then I thot it would be when I started. I think I thot I would drop off at least 20 in 12 weeks. But not so. Not sure if it's because I'm in my 30's now, or what, but this is THE most stubborn weight I have ever dealt with.
I'm glad it's finally starting to leave tho. There is hope after all. I'm not stopping now. If I do this same amount in the next 3 months, that will bring me to 20, and that is nothing to sneeze at
So here we are. 162.2, and 151.4. 10.8 lbs gone! I was a little giddy-happy this mornign to actually finally hit that 10 lb mark!! I've been close for weeks.
I can finally start to see a differance from the front view. just a little. you can still see where all the remaining weight is gathered
As far as inches, I lost 13 inches so far! Went from a size 14, to a 10.
My goal is getting into my cute size 8 summer skirts.
My goal for this month is to run a 5k at the end of the month. I have been practicing. But wow, I feel like a klutz. There's nothing smooth or graceful feeling about it yet. I can't wait till it's a litte more effortless for me. I don't love being this not-good at something. I konw it's somethign you have to work up to, but I just want to be able to do it now. I go on these running blogs to get tips and they're throwing around all this lingo that I have no idea what it means. And I'm just like, I just want to run, to finish the 5k, not set records or increase my time or anything like that. Just get done without dying. My breathing is the main thing right now. Strength wise, my legs certainly aren't giving out, my battle is all mental. I chant little pinterest motivating phrases to myself as I go. It works.
I'm hoping the running over the next month will melt off some more junk in the trunk and diminsh love handles That is my chief motivation
I also purchased a rebounder this week. What is a rebounder, you ask? Well, calling it a rebounder sounds so much cooler then what it really is, a mini-trampoline. Yes. Blast from the past, leftover from the 80's, those little mini trampolines that everyone has in their shag carpet paneled basement rec room. Recently I've learned that they actually tout great health benefits, and are great for your lymph node system and metabolism. Plus they are fun. And it turns out you can pay as much as $700 for a good one. Who knew?! Uh. No. I didn't get one like that. sorry. I compromised just a little on quality this time. But yes, Fun they are. I found some workouts on you tube and they whupped my butt in like 5 minutes. It's way harder then it ever looks, but at the same time so very fun. I think I found my fun cardio, finally. Have I ever mentioned that I hate cardio? Everyone loves zumba these days, but I feel SUPER klutzy even trying it, so now I can get my bounce on instead
and wow. I feel like I'm ramblign.
