8 Weeks Up

8 weeks ago I decided I wanted to reach my goal weight (of 165) by today. Then, it was about 18 lbs left to lose. I weighed in every Monday as I worked hard at the gym and with a trainer, to lose it.

Anyone following, probably noticed I skimped out on weigh-ins the past 2 weeks, truthfully… because I stopped working with the trainer, and really had to start pushing MYSELF- more than ever. Frustration took over some days, while other days I’d break the 5 lb streak to the lower end- and hit 177.

Problem is, muscle weighs more than fat, and at this point if I don’t start really CHURNING out the fat left, I’ll stay plateaued around 179-182. Which is OK, but I won’t finish until I LOOK the way I want to look; and I’m not there yet.

Looking at my weight loss entirely though- I can’t help but be so excited for how far I’ve come.  Wonder woman I AM, and have been this entire time. I’ll keep working…things like this, life changing things…take time.

For the curious cats: almost a year ago to-the-day at Culebra Island, PR (where BTW: looking back I didn’t think I looked as beached whale as I now feel I looked,) compared to a very recent photo at the beach.

Today, I weighed in at 179. Total of 65 lbs down in 8 months. Can’t complain huh?

Thanks to my mom & sis, MediFast and will power, Will Lanier, friends & family for helping my kick this off and keep it going.

It’s not over until this skinny lady sings though, so stay tuned!

    Girlie, you look PHENOMENAL! Are you tracking your bf% as well? You’ve lost so much your fat is prob holding on for dear life, lol. Plus, since you have more muscle maybe you should focus more inches and percentages over #’s.
