It started out as more like a shape up actually. 😀
I’m currently a lot smaller than I was, but wanted to get my proportions right, so I can take full advantage of my natural shape which is athletic/hour glass.
Current measurements/ Size
I like to measure myself on Sunday mornings. The areas
are my shoulder, waist and hips in the weight loss system
I’ve been following.
When I weighed this Sunday I was in for a shock, because I had
gained some weight and I was blissfully ignorant it had happened!
30 Days Weight Loss Challenge
I started the challenge on Monday 9th January and measured in:-
- Shoulder at 44 1/2 inches;
- *Waist at 30 inches; and
- *Hips at 37 1/2 inches.
Yesterday Sunday the 15th January I measured in at:
- Shoulder = 44 inches;
- *Waist = 30 inches; and,
- *Hips = 39 inches
Let’s hope I don’t continue down this unbelievable route!
Come back every week for updates below until the 10th of February
when I would have offically ended it.
Weight Loss Strategy
The plan is to eat a lot less than I had been eating. I was aiming around 1,300 calories a day and possibly eating over that. Now, my focus will be on eating 1000 calories a day for the next few weeks
and working out following the weight loss system that helped get me and my daughter now 15 (she started at 14 years under my supervision and varying the program to fit her needs as a child) drop a full dress size.
I’ve realised that I need to keep a tighter rein on my portion control as it’s ‘run away’ from me and this is what will mainly bring down my weight with exercise playing a supportive role in my shaping up.
* I started out the year with a 29″ waist and 37″ hips.
