have to share! I'm over the moon this morning!
(Jen - jen22001)
I haven't seen much movement on the scale,
however, I did tell you guys that I was going to hang in there
and I've started biking behind my boys. I huff and puff like
crazy on the hills around here. But.....it is soooo worth
it. I've gone about 5 x - that's it and here are the results
already! By the way only 20 minutes or so of biking - I can't
do more -my legs feel like jello.
I've lost off my waist, tummy, and hips -
3" in total. I've lost 1" off my thighs, 1/2"
off my calves. Unfortunately, nothing off my boobs and arms
yet (maybe that will still come?). I'm scared to do weights
for the upper half in case I look a bit like Arnold Schwarzenegger's
Buuuut, what I'm saying is 4-1/2 inches!!
I'm into a pair of shorts I couldn't wear 2 weeks ago. Yeah!
And the scale hasn't really moved. I'm still at 135 lbs, but
frankly I don't care that much; I'm more interested in being
smaller than in what my weight is on a scale.
So, my advice, if anyone is not doing this
yet, purchase a garden variety measuring tape and measure
before you begin an exercise program and then during and after.
Let me tell you, I've done ballet (and that
works too) and I've done aerobics and that works - however,
both these need to be consistent and they take much longer
to show results. The biking showed results practically instantly.
I could NOT believe my eyes this morning!!!!
Doing a happy, happy dance today! I've got
a new addiction - biking! (smile)
