I'm down

Not in spirit, but in pounds. I didn't really get in good workouts like I wanted to, but I ate real food and still lost weight. I am now amped to include workouts and see what happens. I lost about a pound a week this go round so maybe I can lose two pounds per week in the next 8 week cycle. I think the major thing that I have learned in the past couple weeks is to stay focused. I allowed myself to get lazy. I was really excited and aggressive the first 8 weeks and then it got kind of blah. Life got in the way and I dropped the ball. I still did well in terms of what I ate, but failed to complete exercises. Its like my client said "you can eat right all day long Ebony, but you have to move more too." He is so right. I have been doing what I should do in the nutrition area, but that's not enough. So I am going to start implementing a goal system. For every 10 pounds that I lose I am going to reward myself with a clothing item. For every 15 workouts (roughly every two weeks) I am going to rewards my self with foot/hair/spa treatments. I think that that will workout for me. OK well I am off to the gym now. So here is the rundown...

Size: 14/16
Weight: 227
Body fat percentage: 58.7%
Neck: 16"
Chest: 44"
Waist: 46"
Hips: 47.5"
Right Mid-thigh: 24"
Left Mid-thigh: 26"
Right Upper Arm: 15.5"
Left Upper Arm: 15"

Size: 14
Weight: 207
Body fat percentage: 38.3
Neck: 15.5"
Chest: 43.5"
Waist: 37.5"
Hips: 44"
Right Mid-thigh: 23.5"
Left Mid-thigh: 23.5"
Right Upper Arm: 15"
Left Upper Arm: 14.5"

So I am down one size, 20lbs, 20.4% body fat, and a total of 17" Woohoo!!!
