Size 6 jeans, come to Mama! Five and a half months ago, I was wearing a very tight size 12, and now I am wearing a properly fitting size 6. It feels great!
I have to admit that I broke my rules a few times this past week. On Mothers Day, I was over my goal weight for the day, but I ate anyway because it was a holiday. On Monday and Tuesday, I was over my goal weight for those days, but I was having a hard time mentally getting back in the swing of things. I was back on track fasting on Wednesday, and have been following my rules since.
I did gain a little bit in inches, but I am not concerned. Weight and inches naturally fluctuate up and down. Improvements in body composition are never linear. I'm looking forward to a good week!
There are seven weeks remaining for this kindler, gentler challenge. If I achieve my goal of 130 pounds with 25% body fat, I'm not sure where I will go from there.
