September totals

August was a bit of a rough month.  I wasn't able to exercise as often. I still managed to get to Zumba 1 or 2 times a week, and I walked or ran 1 or 3 times a week.  It's tough to find a balance of working full time, spending time with my family, being involved in church,  and trying to lose half my body weight.  

I've also had a bit of a struggle with my food. I haven't been logging everything every day. I've made some poor choices.  Not horrible. Not over the top. No binges or such. Just a few more "treats" than I know I should have.  I know I have to learn to live with treats all around me. I just need to learn how to limit them without feeling deprived.

My numbers are going in the right direction, so I won't complain (too much!)

I'm down about pounds this month.  I say "about" because it's a new scale. I actually had not been on a scale in about 6 weeks. This morning, I stepped on the new scale, and I'm under 250!!

I'm total of 24 inches in three areas.

Waist: Down 8 inches
Chest: Down 9 inches
Hips: Down 7 inches

And now for the pictures: 

This month, in addition to picture in the increasingly too big shirt, I decided to add a set if pictures in a smaller shirt.



  1. You look great!! I felt the same way about August as well. Here's to September, to new routine and no more BBQ's

  2. Has it hit you yet that you're really doing this? That you're sticking with it (even if imperfectly) and you're making it happen? Awesome progress, Julie!
