Shedding the Fluff once and for all!

So, yesterday was a serious kick in my bee-hind. I needed that kick...bruises and all. Yesterday was the first day of my second session of the fitness class I joined. I've been going 3 days per week since the end of last October (minus a few days for holidays, snow days, and sick days....OK, maybe more than a "few" days) and am now officially 2 pounds heavier and 1.1% higher body fat than I was back in October when I first started. Seriously?

I suck.

So this is IT!

I'm coming clean to bloggy land. And if I don't make my goals by the end of this session I'm going to....to.....I don't know.....what do you all want? I'll have a giveaway or something. Any ideas? Share your ideas with me. Cuz I really need to get serious about this.

So here it goes
I was weighed at the gym this morning for our testing day (now, keep in mind, this is fully clothed, with shoes, after breakfast).....I weighed 151 pounds....*GASP*.....and had 32% body fat....double *GASP*.
ACK!
Seriously, The last time I weighed this much I was pregnant. That sucks. I'm only 5' 3". That SO sucks. I used to be in very good physical shape. Very firm. Now I just feel fluffy and saggy. I hate it.
So! That's it! I'm losing this extra layer once and for all. And I'm taking you on my journey with me to keep me accountable.
I'm running the bayshore 1/2 marathon on May 23rd. My goal is to drop 20 pounds by that date. That gives me 16 weeks!
See these love handles?......they'll be GONE!
See this Budda gut? GONE!
This unsucked 4 - 5 month pseudo pregnancy? GONE!


Double chin? History!


This is me getting serious, folks!

You've got your 'game face' on... this must be serious. Kick butt... literally! Good luck.

You are funny. It is so discouraging when you do all that work and have nothing to show for it. I have been gaining and losing the same 15 pounds for years. I weigh more now than I did when I was 9 months pregnant. disgusting.

Kick butt, girl!

Leslie said...

WTF I went to weigh in last night and I was the flipping same as I was last week. How is this possible? So frustrating!!!!!!!!! You are so brave for posting your pics on here. We can do this!!!!!! My goal is 135 that is 30 pounds. I want it gone by Bayshore. (and yes we signed up) So frustrating. I want to be HOT!!!!!! boo hoo makes me want to cry

My husband and I started 'dieting' on Monday. We are going to Cabo san Lucas in February and I'd like to be 'bathing suit ready' by then (though I know I'll never be that ready). I should take some before pics and post 'em but I just don't know if I'm that brave!! Eek! Wat to go for you! It's awesome to set specific goals for yourself!

Colleen - Mommy Always Wins said...

Dude - I seriously had the "well, maybe I AM pregnant" thought the other day while looking down at my belly. But 4 or 5 months pregnant? Not possible. And that's what I look like. GAH. Damn pilates ain't helpin'...maybe I should go more often!

Christy said...

Good luck! I need to get my butt back on track too. Damn sweets!

LittlePaintedPolkaDots said...

Well missy, I just saw you in person and you had no such belly or double chin. No. You. Didn't. You looked fabulous. So what gives? Whose belly did you take a pic of because it isn't yours. You look great!

I commend you for being so focused though. I'm on my umpteenth "weight loss" kick, so I hope this one goes well for all of us!

You go girl! Now that I'm moved and hopefully getting back to "normal" life, I want to get back to the gym. Even tho it's further away from home now...

Oh well. It's worth it! I wanna be looking good this summer!
