No, not my age..
The weight fifties!!!
I weigh 158 lbs today. I have not weighed in the 50's since 2005. I remember weighing around 162 lbs for the Las Vegas Marathon and feeling like a fat slug. 41.5 lbs off!!!
I took measurements for the first time since mid March:
March 7 August 17 2011
Chest 33 Chest 32
Waist 33.5 Waist 33
Hips 37.5 Hips 37
Thigh 22 1/8 Thigh 22
Calf 15 1/8 Calf 15 3/4
Yes I do think my calves may have increased in size, which doesn't bother me at all.
Check out my original measurements:
Thigh 23 1/2
I can attribute this nice drop in some clean eating I am doing this month. I hope to follow up this blog post with one about what I have been eating this month, and what I have not been missing.
What's next? More weight loss. I can certainly stand to lose more. I also need to get onto a weight training routine and tighten up some of my body. I do make my weight loss goals very small and very achievable these days. For example, my next weight loss goal would not be 145 lbs or probably even 150 lbs. That takes too long to achieve and could result in a lot of frustration. Next goal will probably be 155 lbs...not too far away and achievable.
I am really pleased and proud of myself. There's going to be some clothes shopping done sometime soon!
