Week 5 & 5lbs goal met!

YEE-HAW! My first official 5lb goal was met!...but I lost a point...oh well, guess I should get used to that as I continue to lose weight. Only 4.6lbs til I meet my first goal weight. 

Baby steps, Meg, baby steps. 

Total inches lost = 2.5, 1.5" from my bust, .5 from my hips (hello, better fitting jeans), and .5 from my legs. 

I have not lost one inch on my arms since I started this. So weird. I hate big arms. Makes me feel like a man. I know I should me thankful that I have arms, strong arms that can lift a 20+lb baby and carry groceries into the house and hoist fat pugs. I still don't like their unsightly-ness. And how they do nothing for me while trying to rock a tank top or any short sleeves for that matter. 

Next week, I will be getting back into spin after my 18 month hiatus (I stopped about 4 months into my pregnancy). I am really looking forward to it. I know spin isn't for everyone - some say its "boring" - but I love it and I saw great results last time I got into it. And a weird thing is happening to my body, as I am losing weight, things are starting to sag - and look kind of deformed. So in efforts to slow this down, spin will begin with a vengeance.

Good for you! Spin class KICKED my butt so I'm thoroughly impressed. If you keep working out, the sag will disappear too. Then as the fat melts away you will have beautifully toned muscles. It really is worth working out even if the results seem delayed!
