Saturday Morning Weigh In: Finally In the 150’s

Posted by Susan on March 14, 2009

Today’s weigh in was great………….I am finally in the 150’s, I am 5-7 lbs. less then the day I got married !!!!!! I would say I was about 165-167 that day. I am as of today 159.2 !!!!! (doing the happy dance over here !) I keep waiting for this weight loss to slow down, but for some strange reason it is going faster and better than it ever has. The only thing I would say I am doing different would be the IF 2x a week. It is truely making a difference. Here are my stats for this week:

Weight : 159.2 – 3.2 lbs.

Fat % : 36.2 – 1.2 %

BMI : 23.7 – 1.7

I was getting into the shower the other night and walked by the mirror and did a double take. I have not seen my body like this since I was in my late 20’s. It was wild. I can’t believe how much time I have wasted with all types of crazy programs. As far as I am concerned, all workouts programs work, you just have to commit to them and do them consistantly. But diet is another story. The only way to lose weight (in my opinion) is to be dilligent about calorie intake and be sure that you have a calorie deficit……since following this approach I have had dramatic results. I have been trying to eat like a I am training for a figure comp. for like 2 yrs now and it got me nowhere !!! For me it doesn’t fit in my life. I want to eat out, I want to participate in food functions , and I want to live my life. I look at all of my fitness magazines and realize that theses women do not look this buff, and cut 24/7………They diet specially for the photo shoot, and yes they train and train hard, and it is to be respected and commended. But for the average woman like me…….I just want to not have any jiggle bits in a bikini this summer !

I will say this, I am so glad I found Turbulence Training…..circuit training has been very effective for me. I love it and will continue to do it in one form or another. I have my workouts planned in 4 week incriments, for the rest of the year. I will continue TT, and I also own both of Jillian Micheals books, she also has circuits in both books, and I have her 30 Day Shred video that I am planning on doing sometime in this year’s schedualed workout plan.

Needless to day I am very pleased that I reached my goal this week of 159 ! I am soooooooo excited that I am finally seeing results and that I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I honestly have been working really hard on this for the past 2 years and seriously getting NOWHERE! I am grateful for finding a pretty painless way to do this and still live my life.
