Yay!! I finished the Slim Down :-) And this time I didn’t cheat once. I was kinda nervous stepping on the scale this morning. I was shocked with the results: 105.4 lbs! My goal weight! Ok, technically I’m .4 lbs away, but hey close enough, right? lol.
Here’s my After measurements – it was another pleasant surprise for me :-)
Weight: 105.4 lbs.
Waist: 25 in.
Hips: 33.5 in.
Chest: 31.5 in.
Thighs: 19 in.
Total Weight Lost – 6 lbs.
Total Inches Lost – 3 inches
Yes! I am very excited and motivated. I was not expecting to be at my goal weight until the end of the year. Now I can move on to my next goal of putting on muscle :-)
I have come a long way since I started to follow Tone It Up. I found them May of 2011, joined the team at the end of July and started with the Nutrition Plan in August. All together I have lost a total of 12 lbs since August. 15 lbs since May :-) There are really no words to explain how happy I am right now. I feel so confident, strong, and toned. My journey with Tone It Up has proven to me that I Can Do Anything I put my mind to. I Can set Goals And Reach Them :-) It’s great to believe in myself.
Here’s my Before and After Pics from Both Slim Down journeys:
So what now? New Goals!! I have a 5K that I will be running on Thanksgiving for Feed the Hungry in Sacramento. A 10K hopefully in January and I just signed up for the 9 mile course in the Big Sur International Marathon :-) My Big goal: Run the Nike Women’s Half Marathon next October. The Big Sur and Nike Women’s race are still a little intimidating to me right now but I know that if I keep working hard and train, I’ll be able to do it :-)
I am off to Vegas for a week tomorrow night to celebrate my 30th Birthday :-) But I will be working out and eating healthy. I may be on vacation but there is No way in hell I’m throwing away all this hard work. Just looking at the pictures has really reminded me of how far I’ve come and I don’t ever want to go back. I want to keep moving forward and continue living a healthy lifestyle.
I forgot to mention it in my twitvid today, but Thank You! Thank You ! Thank You to Karena, Katrina, and my whole Tone It Up family. I honestly would not have been able to get here without all your support, advice, inspiration, and motivation. Sometimes I feel alone because I don’t have anyone near me who is on a similar journey. I am so grateful to all my Tone It Up sisters on twitter who keep me going every day :-) It’s so nice to know that I am not Alone. Love You All <3
