The Results are in.......

There comes a time in every girl’s life that her balls must drop.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Now, before you get too excited, I will not be sharing pictures of myself in a sports bra.  I’m so sorry to disappoint you. 

I’ve recently thought a lot about writing Fluffette a letter.  There are so many things that I want her to know just in case I’m not here to teach her.  I know that sounds morbid but there’s just no guarantee for tomorrow for any of us.  It would be a fairly sappy letter so I will save that for a later post, maybe.  (I want to give you all time to stock up on tissues).  One of the main points in that letter that I want to share today is this:

“Don’t ever let your insecurities DEFINE  you.  Instead, let them DRIVE  you to accomplish your dreams.”

Well, I need to practice what I preach, so today I will not let my insecurities define me.  I will share with you my weight and measurements thus far.  (this is a huge step for me because I don’t want to share my weight with myself, much less my 3 readers!!)

***Note to Mr. Fluff:  Please don’t read any further.  As far as you’re concerned, I weigh 120 pounds and have a 19 inch waist.   Thank you.

As you’ll remember, this is my goal outfit.  The shirt fits much better (though I still won’t be wearing this in public anytime soon).  I need to do A LOT of work on those bat wings arms.  The pants once barely went over my knees are now up to my Kim Kardashian arse!  I should point out that these are not my pre-pregnancy jeans.  I haven’t fit in to these jeans since 2008 but I feel that day coming again!!

Overall weightloss: 45.8 pounds  (18 pounds since 9/5)
Overall inches lost (since 9/5):  8.75 inches

As far as workin’ on my fitness, I am currently in the middle of week 5 of Couch to 5k in preparation for my first ever 5k on Thanksgiving Day.  (complete look of fear on my face). I’m also on week 2 of Jillian Michaels’ Ripped in 30.  If you haven’t invested in 30 Day Shred or Ripped in 30 yet, you should.  This shit is legit!  As you can see from the decrease in my ring size, Jillian literally worked me to my fingertips!  I’ve lost 18 pounds and 8.75 inches from it and we all know I didn’t try my hardest. 

So there you have it.  All my insecurities all up in your face.  I hope that sharing my weight and measurements (and giant arse picture) can inspire at least one person to make some shit happen!  Or at least provide you with a giggle or two. 

Workin it and ownin it,
Fluffy in Frisco
