14 weeks: almost 25lbs
I meant to post this last week but forgot.
Remember this post from back in November?
I could fit into a 6, but wasn't a true 6 yet.
Well, right before Christmas I went shopping for jeans- my size 10s were barely hanging on, I couldn't wait any longer. I went to Burlington Coat Factory and grabbed about 10 different brands of jeans, all size 8. I also grabbed a few 6s in the thought that if the 8s had fit nicely, then I would buy the same pair in a 6 for when I got to that size.
Imagine my excitement when I found out all the 8s were too big- I'm a 6 y'all!
In the post mentioned earlier I said that I assumed I'd be a 6 at the end of my journey, maybe fitting into an occasional 4. Seeing as I have a little more than 20 pounds still left to lose, I think it's safe to say I'll be a 4 in the end, maybe fitting into an occasional 2. I'm ecstatic!
Something even better than my pant size occurred around the same time. I had some blood work done. When I was 18 I was in pretty bad health- borderline diabetes, cholesterol level of 280, etc. I have not taken medication or precautions for those issues in 7 years, so as I sat in the drs office awaiting my results, you can imagine my worry. She came in and said I was in pretty good health. I was surprised when she said my sugars were perfect. Seriously, perfect? Yep! :) My cholesterol is slightly high, but no where near the 280 it was 7 years prior, (she's not even worried about the # and just prescribed fish oil instead of prescription meds!).
Lower weight, smaller pant size and good blood results, what better way to start 2012!?
Seeing as it's the 2nd day of 2012, wouldn't it be a perfect time to join me on this journey? It has only taken me 14 weeks to lose 25 pounds and to get in better shape/health.
I just glanced at the calendar and if I counted correctly, 14 weeks from now is April. How awesome would it be if you could possibly drop 25lbs by April?!
