I’m on to the part of my weight loss journey where I am searching for the end point. It’s around here somewhere! 180 pounds was my goal first goal weight, which I reached in August last year. Since then, I’ve been taking it in 5 pound increments. First 175, then 170 now 165 is my goal.
My body has changed dramatically over the last ten pounds. My exercise regime includes three days a week of Les Mills Body Pump, which I very much credit for changing my shape. Because it takes me through a full body workout, I’m really making a lot of progress in my upper body. I’ve always preferred lower body workouts for some reason and find it very difficult to push myself to do an effective upper body workout. But I’m seeing all this definition in my shoulders and arms I never had before. And I’m loving it!
Over the last 10 pounds, I’ve lost 2 cup sizes. Some women lose breast tissue first, I seem to have lost it near the end of the journey. I went from a DD to a C. While of course I have some mixed feeling about this, overall I am pleased as the C cups make a lot more sense on my current body and I can fit shirt styles I’ve never considered before.
I am currently a size 10 pants. I can squeeze into some 8s but I’m definitely size ten.
I don’t want to lose very much more weight, but I’m still working on my fitness and still eating healthy, which I always will. So my body continues to change in exciting ways. I’m loving my figure at the moment and it gives me a thrill when I try on clothes.
Overall I have lost 118 pounds since January 2009. I feel amazing!
