So yeah… I have been MIA…
I only lost 12 pounds this round… can’t say I’m completely surprised. Being that I am close to goal, new EVERYTHING in life kinda got in my way (including the new BF). It’s hard to not want to go out to eat with him, I did manage to keep the side tracking to a minimum (not weighing, and eating veggies that weren’t quite on protocol where my main infractions)… but hey whatever.
I also officially ended my VLCD part of the round about 2 (but slacking off before that) days early just because the scale wasn’t budging! To tell you the truth, I think I lost most (or all) the weight in the first 2 weeks! (perhaps because I’m close to goal?) I dunno.
I’m also semi disappointed with the stabilizing thus far. 5 pounds up from my end (and only 5 days in!) once again.. my fault. I won’t get into the logistics. But, needless to say, I am doing a “steak day” today to push some of that down again. MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT! I won’t let this get to me though… just time to get back focused!
On the plus side… I joined the gym again! I’ve been already 2 days within the past 3 days of being a member. I hope to tone some of this up… It’s not BAD.. but it can be improved :) I’ve been wearing lots of strapless dresses and shirts and feeling great about it! Also, I have been attempting to wear shorter dresses (sometimes with leggings and once without) with the leggings I feel good… still not too sure of without. I think I need to get a tan before i attempt that again.. LOL.
So here are my final stats for the VLCD:
November 4 2010: Begin round one at 222.4 pounds.
Beginning measurements November 4, 2010 (inches):
- Bust: 41
- Arm: 15
- Waist: 34
- Hips: 54
- Thigh: 33
Final Weigh in Round 4: 161.0 (-12 pounds this round / -61.4 on hCG / -101.2 pounds since highest of 262.2 January 2008)
End Measurements Round 4 July 20, 2011 (inches):
- Bust: 35 (no change this round :D
- Arm: 13 (no change this round :(
- Waist: 29 (-1 inch this round :)
- Hips: 44 (-1 inch this round :)
- Thigh: 26 (-1 inch this round :D
Difference (inches) Total
- Bust: -6
- Arm: -2
- Waist: -5
- Hips: -10
- Thighs: -7
Overall… pretty damn good! I’m fitting loosly into a size 14, but not quite comfortable in a 12. I wear a size medium dress and shirt. Right now.. I am happy. My next round MIGHT be a short round (3 weeks maybe?) we’ll see. But first I have to struggle and keeping this weight down for the next 5 1/2 weeks. I can do it! I’m not new to this.. I know what I’m doing.. now to just put it all to work.
See ya soon!
