On Saturday it was the 5 month anniversary of being on Medifast -- I was at the MF Clinic and have lost 70 lbs and 90.75 inches. My bp was 124/71... no meds. WOOT!! Since last month when I was measured, I've lost 4 inches around my waist... I think another contributing factor to that great loss is the fact that I'm wearing a 2X pretty comfortably in tops now (WOOT WOOT!) and 1X 18/20 on the bottoms. I even bought a pair of shorts that are a size 20 -- and they're 93% cotton and 3% stretchy, but they ZIP and they SNAP!!
No, still not going to be tucking anything in anytime soon... but a size 2X top over them works well!
I've put my progress picture front-side on Facebook, and will get to the side views etc... for the progress page as soon as I can. Here, however, is me and my escort at the finish line of the 5K from last night (my time was 1:12).
It was 102 yesterday, I had on my neck-cool thing, drank 3 bottles of water before, during and after, and hopped in the (still quite cold) pool at home for about 15 minutes to seriously cool down. Today I'm feeling like I did something yesterday, but feel good. Re-hydrating a lot... my lips feel dry!
I also had the craft class yesterday... and my buddy and I did IKEA in under 40 minutes!! WOOT WOOT!! I know that the lack of the Lean & Green before walking, the fact that I woke up at 4:27am and drove 4 hours, then spent time teaching crafts, and then, finally... getting to the walk had something to do with my energy levels ... (ya think?!) *LOL*
