It’s not the pounds-IT’S THE INCHES!

Hey everyone!

It is the last day, or next to the last day, of the Advocare 24-Day Challenge!  I weighed in, got measured and had the stats calculated!  Starting weight was 136, today’s weight was 135.5.  BUT!  Here are the measurement calculations!

“Dun ta don! (so made up that sound!)

ok so your After photos are attached! and you officially lost: 1 pound, 2.5 inches, for a total of 3.75 pounds of body fat (found by multiplying 1.5 times # of inches lost)

Congrats again and WAY TO GO!
You did so awesome! Keep it up!”
This is from Amber, the Anytime Fitness-Fredericksburg who did the before and after measurements of the challenge!  Thank you Amber!

Not much visual change from these pics, but my pants DO show me a change!  I DID see my weight at 132 last Thursday, after being gone from home and the gym!  I was in Huntsville helping my daughter get settled in her new apartment. They relocated because Michael is going to grad school at Sam Houston; she got a job and had to get moved before school started for Michael.  Yes, YaYa got to spoil that grand-baby!  No gym available to work out in kinda had me worried about gaining but I was careful to make sure I took the MNS packs as I should and careful as to what I ate while there!

Yes, I DID binge out this weekend, but IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY!!  OK!!!!! (did you hear me yelling at myself…?) 🙂

Again, it is not about the pounds, it is about the inches lost and I am very satisfied as to what I have lost and I will continue to stay on the plan!  I was taking the MNS E packs, but now I will be taking the packs of MNS C for another 14 days.  Those are suppose to really help me with my appetite control. That has been my issue…eating too much!  The foods I eat are not BAD foods, it is just I eat TOO DARN MUCH OF THEM!!!!!  I have a hard time stopping if it is especially good!  I live to eat, can you tell!  I love good food!

I am happy with my body right now but I am looking forward to having more results, so I will continue working out and doing the MNS packs for another 14 days and then take a break from the packs.  You cannot go back to way you were before, so we keep on doing what is right! Or else, the weight and inches will see you again!!!!

The garden is starting to take off, fresh cucumbers, squash, green beans, okra, peppers of all kinds, sound like gumbo to me??!!!  You bet!  But a low fat one!!!  Or maybe even a cold gazpacho using the cucumbers and peppers and squash!  Yum Yum!  Watch out for garden pics and recipes!!!!

Thank you all for your support!  Hugs!  Vicky D
