May Your Way--Final Weigh-In!

I can't believe how well I've done on this challenge!! I'm definitely on a roll.

Here are my final stats:

Starting Weight: 193.2                        Ending Weight: 181.2 (That's a 12-pound loss!!!)

Starting Measurements                     Ending Measurements

Waist  --  37"                                       Waist --  35" (2-inch loss!)
Hips  --  42"                                         Hips  --  40.5" (1.5-inch loss!)
Thigh (R)  --  26"                                Thigh (R)  -- 24.75" (1.25-inch loss)
Arm (R)  --  12.75"                             Arm (R)  --  12.5" (0.25-inch loss)
Calf (R)  --  17.5"                               Calf (R)  --  17" (0.5-inch loss)

How did I do it, you ask? I exercised, I ate right, and I didn't cheat. I was able to put up a whole BUNCH of size-16 jeans, capris, and shorts up in my closet with my maternity clothes. I got down all but four pairs of my 14s, which will fit in another few pounds. The goal jeans (size 12s) are in sight and will hopefully be worn this winter.

The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans has another challenge starting up in a couple of weeks; you should check it out. It just might be the motivation you need to get ready for swimsuit season!!

Speaking of such...here I was on Memorial Day with my sweet Benjamin:



Happy June, everyone!!!
