Mother's Day Challenge - Beginning Measurements

Saturday, May 12, 2012

We're getting ready to do our huge international move from sweet Spain back to the good ol' US of A. While it may prove to be difficult among the moving and traveling, I am going to lose this winter weight before my next birthday, which happens to be the day after Father's Day (tight bod, not a bad gift to present to the hubby). If anyone's with me please let me know. Strength in numbers!! So, here are my measurements. I am "officially" starting tomorrow. My goal is 125, but if I make it under that I won't complain. Wish me luck! :)

Weight: 133lbs
Spare tire: 36.5" (easy enough to find)
Ribs: 31" (2" above belly button)
Thighs: 22" (lt and rt each measured the same)
Hips: 39" (right around my wobbly winter butt)
Waist: 35" (3" below belly button, should be called "back fat" haha)
Distance between big toes before thighs don't touch: 7.5"

Looking back on my previous blogs, and seeing where I was in June of last year, I'm pretty surprised. What a difference exercise makes! This was me on June 20th, 2011

Weight: 119
Abs: 31
Waist: 27
Hips: 33
Left Thigh: 19
Right Thigh: 19
Distance Big Toes must be apart before my thighs don't touch: 2" (-3")

So what prompted this sudden motivation after months and months of gleefully wallowing in my recliner, watching "Lost" and stuffing my face with chips? Summer came. Summer came and I got out all my clothes and found that nothing fit anymore. The clothes that used to be baggy on me are even a little tight. I'm not going to beat myself up over it because it doesn't matter. Everyone gains weight in winter. It's nothing to freak out over, but I am most definitely ready to bring back my summer body. I wouldn't mind showing up in my new hometown wearing my Spanish summer skirts and dresses. PLUS I can't afford a new wardrobe ;) haha.

    Hey ladies! Thanks for stopping by! We're in Spain right now, but we're outta here the first week of June. The next couple of weeks are going to be stressful :P

    I started getting back on track the first of May. I have baby weight rather than winter weight to get rid of, but I definitely believe in strength in numbers.

    I did the same thing! I was in a great spot last summer and then school, winter, and bio-mama-drama all hit. Here I am 20 lbs heavier than the body I loved to flaunt. It's time to toughen the standards again.
