Bootcamp is (sort of) over. The 8 weeks stretched into 10. Thank you Susan for the bonus! I declined to join Bright Lifers which is the next phase as I just don’t have the annual fee right now and I am too Jewish to pay double for the monthly rate. Can’t do it!! LOL
Stats were awesome:
240lbs on Nov 27, 2017
207lbs on March 1, 2018
Measurements on December 20th:
.5 less neck
7 less bust
10 less!!!! Waist
3 less hips
Lost a total of 20.5 inches overall.
Dropped from size 24+ to size 14.
Thats just the outside.
I feel wonderful.
I am living in the moment a lot more. Not all the time, but baby steps. I learned how to meditate. Got better at gratitude.
Learning to not isolate myself and eat. And now I have four new friends – real friends even if we haven’t met – yet! And a dozen people who will jump in at any time of the day or night to give me advice, answer questions or just offer love and support.
I know how to move through hunger – it really isn’t an emergency. All of me knows that now, not just my left brain.
I am looking forward to my next 8 week goal which is to start all over again but going vegan. No sugar. No flour. No dairy. No meat.
I’ve never been able to sustain a vegan lifestyle for more than a few weeks. Now I suspect it is due to the sugar and flour I was consuming.
I will be adding in some whole grains, such as oats and quinoa and rice and will include some BLE friendly cereal and gasp! Ezekiel bread a couple of times a week.
I need to lose at least another 38 pounds, ideal charts suggest I should lose another 82. That’s a long road – maybe 49 weeks, maybe 82, maybe 160 – who knows?
For today, no sugar, no flour, no meat, no dairy and a whole world of yes! Yes to meditating. Yes to listening to music. Yes to reading good books. Yes to writing. Yes to afternoon naps and bunny slippers. Yes to time with my family. Yes to time with friends. Yes to traveling. Yes to learning and growing. Yes.
Bring it on, world!
