Hi everyone! Writing this quickly before I go to class, but it'll work!
Since my weight loss journey began on July 4th of 2011, I have lost 30 pounds (one pound away from halfway to goal) and 13 inches overall.
I'm doing WW and, as many warned me, when I moved I went completely off the wagon...well, sort of. I hit a plateau from the stress and found myself a non-tracking "simply filling" participant. This really meant that once every few weeks I would go online and track, I weighed myself about once a week to make sure that if I wasn't ~losing, I at least wasn't ~gaining, and that's about it. Ate fast food and drank sodas...everything I wasn't doing when I lost the original 12 or so pounds.
Obviously, the depression from being away from my family, living on my own for the first time...and my boyfriend constantly ~trying to move here but never making it took hold of me. I consider myself lucky that overall in that period of time I did lose SOME weight. However, since that plateau at around 210-215, I've dropped down to 202 from being more aware of my diet through December to actually tracking the past two weeks religiously.
As for measurements... (starting/current)
Waist.... 37"... 33"
Hips... 46.5"... 43.5"
Bust... 46"... 42.5"
As far as exercise, I desperately need to get back in that game. I have a daily hike on campus (it's built into a reaaaally steep hill here in CO) but sometimes that is about it...little hikes with my dogs here and there and skiing whenever I can helps, but obviously I need more. I'm going to start doing Zumba at least five times a week, because obviously my measurements need to start ticking down as well as the weight (seriously, arms and thighs?!? go away!)
My goal of 170 will be reevaluated when I get there, which I hope will be by April 23rd of this year, my 22nd birthday. Being lazy for three months of the six made me realize how EASY it would have been to lose 30 pounds in three, so now I'm going to try to prove it to myself! That's about 2.5 pounds a week. Hopefully I'll be posting some glorious pictures in the goal album come late April!
