Oh March, how are ya? I know most people say this, but seriously, where the hell is the year going? On that note, however, in comes another check-in and if you follow me on Instagram you will have seen that I am DOWN 7.8 pounds! If I am not mistaken, that is my greatest loss yet. I am currently at 211.2 pounds, making it 31.4 pounds of total loss! I am so close to Onederland that I can taste it! Some days, it is hard for me to notice a difference in the mirror, mostly because I look at myself every day. However, my clothes are fitting better and I have items that are big on me now! Those pants in the picture down below, they use to be extremely tight on me, I thought for sure I was going to rip them at one point. Now, they are slightly loose. My favorite leather jacket was so tight on my arms, I could barely move them and when I took it off (which was a huge struggle mind you) there were red marks and indinations everywhere. Now? LOOSE! I am feeling more confident in myself everyday. I haven’t cared about what people thought about me for a long time, only the words in my head mattered. Even though I still deal with severe depression and bad days, my confidence in myself keeps increasing. I’ve always known I was a bad ass, but now I am actually starting to feel like one too.
Clearly, I think you guys can tell I’m out of my depressive funk and might I add, no longer sick. But before getting into anything else, let’s go over some numbers shall we?
|February 1, 2018||March 1, 2018||Difference|
|Weight||219.0 lbs||211.2 lbs||↓ 7.8 lbs|
|Neck||14 1⁄2 inches||14 inches||↓ 1/2 inch|
|Left Arm||17 1⁄4 inches||16 1/2 inches||↓ 3⁄4 inch|
|Right Arm||17 1⁄4 inches||17 inches||↓ 1⁄4 inch|
|Chest||40 3⁄4 inches||40 inches||↓ 3/4 inch|
|Waist||37 1⁄2 inches||36 1/2 inches||↓ 1 inch|
|Hips||46 1⁄2 inches||46 1/4 inches||↓ 1/4 inch|
|Left Thigh||28 1⁄4 inches||27 1/2 inches||↓ 3/4 inch|
|Right Thigh||28 1⁄4 inches||27 1/2 inches||↓ 3⁄4 inch|
|Left Calf||18 1⁄2 inches||18 1/4 inches||↓ 1/4 inch|
|Right Calf||18 1⁄2 inches||18 1/4 inches||↓ 1/4 inch|
So, if my calculations are correct I am down 5 1/2 inches overall. This has definitely been one of my best months, despite the setbacks and hurdles. Looking over my goals for last month, I managed to hit 1 out of the 3 goals, which was to lose 8 pounds in February (hey, I know I’m .2 pounds off, but I’m giving myself this one). 1 out of 3 is not bad, with that being said, let’s go over my March goals, shall we?
1. Be able to run 30 minutes straight.
I have the half marathon coming up in June and I have yet to even complete the Couch 2 5K plan because I keep making excuses. I am not going to be able to survive this half marathon if I don’t get my damn head in the game.
2. Lose 1 inch for each arm.
If you were to ask me what body part I hate, it’s my arms. I have ALWAYS hated them. They are extremely flabby and are huge bat wings. I want to feel confident wearing tank tops because I love tank tops, but hate my arms. I can’t lose anything from them unless I start strength training.
3. Lose 11.3 pounds to put my in ONDERLAND!
Now, I know this is a bit much, but I managed to hit my goal last month and I really want to try this month. If I don’t hit it, I know I will come close and definitely hit it in April, but I would really love to prove to myself that I can, because I haven’t been in Onderland in about 8 years and I want to get there so bad.
Well, I think that does it for me. If you stuck around this long and read to the end, I appreciate it. Until next time!
