Winter slim-down week 29

Drumroll please…. Here it is! My first publicized photo of myself since I began this long and tedious weightloss journey. I have to tell you, that when I began (I’m talking from the very beginning) I weighed a whopping 76 kilos (168 lbs). I looked like a short blueberry with limbs. I’m now approx 61-62 kilos (134-136 lbs) and I feel great! Its the last 10 kilos (or 20 lbs) that have been proving themselves the most stubborn to shed. I mean…really!

I happy to say that I am now at a BMI of 24.1 (normal body weight between 18.5 -24.9).I’ve been sneaking to check and until this week, I’ve been in the overweight range. Health wise apparently, I’m just fine if I maintain this weight. Wooohooo! So, something else to celebrate.

I have to say a HUGE ‘THANK YOU!’ to David from Chape! I’m about to put a public picture of my unshapen self on the internet, and had it not been for this guy getting me into good enough condition to post a swimsuit pic (physically and mentally), well..

So here’s the pic (header image). I know that there is toning up to do, but shedding the weight has been the most horrific part, so I know I can do this. And now that I’ve posted myself in the most vulnerable picture yet, I can say that there will be more updates with accompanying photos.  I have to say that until today, I was really nervous about being in public where my body showed. I love to dress prettily, but I still carry that fat girl mentality that screams in my head that I look huge and unkempt and unworthy of my pretty things. I now know that this is untrue, and its just a matter of shutting that bitch up.

Today, I ate tofu…and it was delicious. Then I realized that I still shouldn’t be. Buuuttt, with every victory comes a tiny reward – and tofu was its name.

This week, my workout routines are having a bit of a switch-up. Some days are more physically challenging than others, but if a shapelier and less robust figure is the outcome, with a side of self-confidence; I’m game!

Some of my incorporated exercises (click on the name and view the exercise):

Bird dog

Lateral Plank   (This is still not easy)

and Dumbbell Triceps Overhead Extension

Diet? Still trying to eat more fresh, leafy, nature grown things and less sweet, chemically, lab made foods.

That’s my story- and I’m sticking to it!

What do you think?
