25.6 lbs down! *Finally* 186 was the 25 lb mark and I was 186.4 the day I left for Europe. Gosh it took me a bit to finally see this. And what else do you see??? Finally a "normal" BMI. The last time I used the fat monitor my BMI was over 27 and it was "high". Woo hoo!!!!
Yesterday I woke up wither either allergies or a head cold. How do you tell? I never though I had allergies until these past several years. Blah! My throat was scratchy, my eye itched, my nose was a leaky faucet. . . that all probably helped me see this number on the scale. I just didn't feel much like eating, but I did run 3 miles, ride Eli and do errands. So I was active. I ate a crap ton of fruit cause when I have a sore throat I like food to go down and scratch/rub it. :) Strange I know.
Saturday we went to out first Cardinals game of the year. I got a new shirt before I left for Europe and I gotta tell you I felt like I looked good and bad at the same time. The shirt didn't hide much cause it was fitted and white. I had my hubby take a photo.
*ALL* I see in this photo is my dreaded fat roll. Ugh. I told my hubby to let me know when it's showing. I can hide it. I can stand in ways that hide it. I just don't always know when it's making an appearance. I had him take one from the waist up cause I was afraid it was showing. That's the one I posted to FB. :) I swear. . . . back in the day I had this friend who has quite the belly pooch. We would shop a lot together. She was jealous of the fact that I didn't seem to have a pooch. I would say that isn't true and never was. But my stomach has always been less poochy than hers. However she doesn't have a muffin top roll. She once said she wouldn't give up her pooch if it meant having a roll. Cause she sees how hard it is to hide. However, even though I hate it, I'm pleased with my progress and how I look :)
I'm really trying hard not to push Advocare on my FB. I get sick and tired of friends that only post about shit they sell. But it's hard cause I'm so excited about it. I just never dreamed I'd reach 25 lbs this early in the year. Really I thought it'd be fall before I saw the 180's. This is exciting. I feel good, have more energy, have clearer skin. . . .and I get excited talking about it. I want to help everyone! :) But I know I have to wait and let them tell me when they are ready.
