Woot! I’ve made it to Day 16 of the Advocare 24 Day Challenge! I got up bright and early this morning so Hubs could take my pictures and I could share this. I am really excited about these changes.
In 16 days, I’ve lost 5.6 pounds and 10.25 inches. In addition to losing a bit off my neck, upper arms, and wrists, I have lost 2 inches off my waist, 1.25 inches off my hips (man, my hips are stubborn), and 2 inches off each thigh, plus a half inch off each calf.
For the first time in a LONG time, I’ve worn size 14 pants and jeans. And they are the OLD size 14, not the new size 14. LOL. You KNOW clothing sizes keep getting larger. LOL. Anyway, my husband bought my Levi’s for me a few years ago (i.e. the last time I lost weight) and the dress pants I’ve had since then, too. What’s funny is that the last time around, I couldn’t wear 14’s until I hit 170. I wore them 9 pounds sooner this time, which I am certain is because of the exercise (i.e. body pump class and running). I am trimmer at 178.4 pounds than I was at 170 pounds! That’s pretty awesome.
Here’s a comparison of Day 1 and today…
Same outfit. Different body. Woot!
The last time I lost weight, my low weight was 165 pounds. At this rate, I think I may hit that by year’s end. I had originally set my weight goal at 140, but I did adjust that to 145 just based on how things are shaping up. I’ve lost 46.6 pounds total, and I think that extra 5 pounds might be too thin. Of course, I can adjust my goal again later, if I want to.
I have 8 days left on this challenge, and yes, I know that includes turkey day. I think I can make it through turkey day without gobbling too much. LOL.
I’ll check in again in a few days to let you know how things are going!
