I have been fine except for this irritating dry cough that has refused to go but all in all healthy eating plan and exercise are on course.
I decided to measure myself with a tape because a lot of people were commenting on my weight loss and I can't seem to see much difference and have lost just about 6.7kg in the past 3 months and I was quite impressed(if I do say so myself),
Starting Current Loss
Weight 99kg 92.4kg 6.6kg
Bust 46in 41in 5in
Waist 42in 37in 5in
Hips 47in 43in 4in
Arms 15in 13in 2in
Thighs 28in 26.5in. 1.5in
This showed a loss of about 17 inches and this makes me excited to go on. Just got a new heart rate monitor/pedometer/watch and I intend to make good use of it.
Losing weight is not measured on the scale alone and when there is no change or even a gain as it happened to me in the 1st few weeks, it can be discouraging.
When you exercise, you build muscle and muscle weighs more than fat but takes up less space, so you might weigh more but wear a smaller dress size. It is not just about weight loss on the scale but about a fitter and healthier you meeting new fitness challenges and eating healthier too.
My desire is to walk 70,000 steps at least weekly, run more than walk, bring down and keep down my blood pressure and cholesterol( I am off medications for cholesterol right now and hopefully never going back on it) control my oesto artritis and off course wear a size 12/14......more 14 again.What are your goals?
What are your plans for the Christmas holidays? Will tell you more about my plans in my next post.
