Claretta – Week 37

The Numbers Don’t Lie

My Trainer made me submit to the dreaded body measurements and fit tests
today:  The news wasn’t all bad!

Since October 20, 2011, I have lost 10.6 pounds; 2.75 inches in my chest;
1 inch in my biceps; 4 inches from my waist; 3 inches from my hips; .75 inches from my calves; and 4.75 inches from my thighs.  My total weight loss thus far is 40 pounds!!!!!  and 16-1/4 all around inches.  That translates to being down 2 dress sizes!  OK, I’ll take that!

I did my “final” weigh in at Weight Watchers today for Dr. Oz’s Transformation Nation.  Total there is 17.2 pounds!  I didn’t transform as much as I could have due to laziness on my part, and I won’t win the $1 Million, but I still feel MUCH better than I did 6 months ago, and I can’t wait to see where I’ll be 6 months from now.

I’m going to wipe the slate clean, draw a line in the sand, and go forward with what I have learned works and doesn’t work from my past experiences.  I have 4 more sessions with my trainer (who has been awesome, by the way!).  I’m just quitting the expense of a personal trainer,  not my gym membership or desire to get fit, healthy and slimmer.  I’m on a roll now and looking to lose 85 more pounds!

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
