I haven’t heard from the doctor so I’m going to go with no news is good news and I’m going to head back to the gym. I’ll finish this week just with swimming and light exercise and next Monday I’ll get back into the swing of things. But I’m going to look at this diet and exercise just a wee bit differently. Since I have sort of hit a wall of just maintaining I’m going to go with that. Yes I’m not exactly at my desired weight but just maybe my body is and my minds just hasn’t adjusted yet. Now it doesn’t mean I’m going to just go back to anything I use to be doing, no it just means I’m not going to focus solely on losing weight. I am going to concentrate on toning up my body and if I lose more weight along the way, GREAT, if not then I’ll just have a little bit heavier body but a much more toned and shapely one. I am going to measure me this weekend and see what I can do about the lumps and bumps. I want to thank you all for helping me see just what I couldn’t.
So what is a great figure to have? I know it’s not exactly what I have here though my waist at one time was way over 40” and it’s now a few inches under that. I know a 44C was a pretty big bra to buy and now a 38B is pretty awesome and size 18/20 jeans were way to tight and now I just ordered my first pair of 12’s. I use to wear a size 8 wide shoe and now a 7.5 regular fits nice and not pinching. So I’m on my way to the most healthiest body for me.
When I do my update for the challenge I’m not going to focus on the scale I’m going to start a new number, it’ll be a total inch total that I’ll update each week and I know for the first couple of weeks there won’t be a change but maybe once I get back into things the inches can start to melt away. I’ll keep posting my weight because of the CDCC but when that is over there will be just one number and I’ll go to once a month. This may sort of not be part of the weight loss forum but I hope you guys will still hang with me and keep teaching me and helping me because if it wasn’t for you I’d still be in my funk and not seeing things that you’ve pointed out.
So that’s that, now a question:
I was wondering, would anyone be interested in a secret Santa exchange? I’ll host one if you guys would like it. I hosted a Garden Swap a couple springs ago and it was a success and everyone had a great time and got some really cool garden items. A Christmas one could be anything you’d like with a set price for the gift. You could tell me if you want to ship just in your area or overseas or what and I’ll match everyone up. What do you think? Tell me by Sunday and we’ll set a date to sign up and a date to end and ship so that your gift would get to where it’s going before Christmas. If you want you can ask your followers if they’d like to do this and send them here. So tell me by Sunday if you’re interested in something like this and we’ll go from there.
So it’s close to bed time. I hope you all sleep well. Don’t forget to end your day with a thank you prayer to our good Lord for all the blessings he’s given us. Even on our worse days there’s still some one worse off then we are and they also deserve a prayer for support and love and guidance. Take care my friend. Blessings!!
