This week is the start of a new phase of weight loss for me. Christmas 2010 brought with it some photos that were scary enough to shock me into doing a little extra to shift that residual ‘baby weight’. I got weighed and measured at the exercise class I was attending and my bmi was at 27.9, with my weight at 12 stone 1 and a scary 40.2% body fat.
The new year brought with it a new opportunity for exercise, as my new house had plenty of good sized walks from my front door, so with baby on back on dog happily wagging along behind me, we embarked on an increased exercise regime.
I have been breastfeeding throughout, so this has helped me lose lbs, and I find I lose a good chunk of pounds evey time my irregular monthlies arrive. I’ve found that with regular relaxed exercise and a reasonable amount of healthy eating, plus running round after a lively toddler, the weight has steadily dropped and today my measurements are as follows:
weight: 11 st 1 (Idid get down to 10st 10 but I got cocky!)
bmi: 25.5 (almost healthy!)
I’m very happy with these stats, but my bmi should be below 25 ideally, and I can see a few wobbles here and there, so as of tomorrow, and with the help of some very special people, I will be letting you all know how I’ll lose that last pesky half a stone (and maybe more!) and comfortably do up all of my old size 12 jeans that have been in storage from a time before i even got pregnant.
Today began with the delivery of the long-awaited Zaggora HotPants, so i made a start, giving the dog a nice long walk whilst wearing them. I imagined them to be unflattering and uncomfortable but they were neither, though when I removed them my hips and thighs were lightly perspiring, but that is how they help to shift the cellulite. They claim to make you lose 2 dress sizes in two weeks, so watch this space……I am an ambassador for Zaggora HotPants and recieved a pair to evaluate.
