Today I met, actually exceeded my mini goal of losing 4% of my 06/01/13 weight in the DietBet.com 4 week challenge.
This week I lost 3.4 lbs for a total weight loss of 73.4 lbs in 29 weeks on the Ideal Protein Diet protocol. I'm shaking my head in awe at those numbers.
I'm going into my 30th week of being 100% on program (Ideal Protein Diet protocol using alternatives) with absolutely no cheats!!! That statement alone and reflecting back on this journey actually makes me tear up.
I'm happy! Pure and simple.
I'm getting my life back, getting healthy, and overcoming my emotional eating. This journey has been so amazing and I know the next 30 weeks (if that's what it takes to get to goal) will only serve to strengthen me and allow me to realize even more my potential.
It's been a fun ride. Not always easy, but I wouldn't trade it for anything at this moment.
I look in the mirror sometimes and don't even recognize myself – I have to do a double take look and see if it's really me.
Progress Stats on the Ideal Protein Diet
Progress Stats have been updated so you can see exactly what areas I lost this week.
Another fantastic week in losses since starting the Ideal Protein Diet.
Check this out.
My fat mass weighed 136 lbs when I first started and now it weights 74.4 lbs! Incredible!
Here's another “check this out” – inches lost:
Arm – 4.5 in EACH arm!
Chest – 8 inches
Waist – 9.25 inches
Stomach – 10.5 inches
Hips – 11.5 inches
Thigh – 8 inches in EACH thigh!!! Wha?? Crazy!
Calves – 3.75 inches in EACH calf
Here's some perspective – I took a 16 oz Starbucks cup – cuz that was the first thing I saw that was rounded and looks like a thigh (well not really like a thigh) – and it measured almost 8 inches around the top part of the cup! I've lost a 16 oz width of a Starbucks cup off of each thigh!!!!!
Main goal to get to 124 lbs. My cycle chick has MADE it past the half way mark!!!!!!!! Woo Hoo!
4th Mini Goal is to be at my lowest weight in 18 years – 170 lbs.
