November 2009 - weight unknown


161 and losing inches steadily! :happy:

Other than physical difference, I'm building muscle in places I've never had muscle! I can't wait to have all the fat gone and be able to SEE what I've been building for so long! :bigsmile: I've also been able to decrease my 5k time since I first ran one last November. I ran/walked it in 43:30 then and I'm down to 39:07 now! I'm not necessarily running MORE but I AM running faster and I'll take that.

I've lost a good 2 pant sizes and 2 or more shirt sizes. That blue shirt was a Target L and now I'm fitting into Target Ms ... was also wearing XLs in other shirts and can typically fit into ANY M :D Those black pants fit like 14s and they were super tight. I can still wear them but have to wear a belt and am wearing Old Navy 10s. The dress in the pic is a junior 11 and I bought it a week before that pic & it fit perfectly...the night I wore it, it was already getting too big. Probably won't get to wear it again! :sad: Who wants it?! lol
