Week 15 weight loss update!

I have been on my weightloss journey now for almost 4 months! Wow!

I have gone from 194 to 172.6!

That is a loss of 21.4 pounds! Once I have lost 22 pounds I will be halfway to my original goal. :) April and I could be at 150! But I haved decided that I will need to lose 5 more pounds to be at a healthy BMI. So, 145 is the ultimate goal now. :) At 150 I will still be moderately overweight. Gotta get that BMI to 25 or under. :)

My size 14 jeans, remember I started in 20's, are getting a little baggy now. :)

My measurements are the same. I am working on muscle to bring the inches down more. But this may mean a climb in my weight for a while. That will be okay as long as inch loss is good. ;)

I love trying on clothes now! And I tell you the best thing is seeing yourself in the mirror and you recognize that person! I have missed myself! :) I am excited about Christmas Photos! I could be under 170 for those this year. :)

I know I owe you all the how's of my weight loss now that I have lost over 20 pounds. BUT, I will have to get to it this week maybe. I have to plan Eli's Sonic party. But I will try to do it before or right after. :) Promise! I am excited to share!

I also wanted to share this chart! Isn't it beautiful???

I am ready for a new week of poundage loss!

Hey, girl! Good job. One thing I've heard is that the BMI isn't the greatest measurement of body fat and/or health. Before changing your goals permenantly, you might consider using a body fat calculator that asks for your measurements. I know you know that muscle weighs more than fat and inch loss is a better indicator of fitness gains and so on. Anyway, it's just a thought. Google body fat calculator and you'll find plenty of options.
