What a journey that was, meet some awesome & amazing ladies through this program thanks to some wonderful groups I found on Facebook :) I achieved some goals, lost some weight & discovered I am stronger & more dedicated than I thought I was.
Ok so the journey is far from over for me & the last 16 weeks didn't happen without some slip ups along the way, but all & all I am happy at how far I have come & know that I can only keep on getting better with each day that passes & that I proceed to continue to live with my new habits as a life style. This wasn't just for 16 weeks & now I am going back to my old way of living this was a new way for me to live & a much better & happier way for me to live.
So with Round 1 under my belt these are my final results:

CM's gone from September 2011 = 108cms
CM's gone from 16th Jan 2012 = 66cms

Ab Strength Test: No change stayed on level 3.
So I made some improvements overall, I can see & feel that I much fitter then I was at the start of the year & my confidence in myself is improving I am feeling a bit more comfortable in my own skin. I am not where I want to be as of yet but I am on my way & that is something worth smiling about & being proud of.
Too many times we beat ourselves up on what we didn't achieve & how we didn't succeed with the expectations of ourselves. I have come to understanding that I am not doing that anymore as it isn't productive & it's not helping me to get where I want to go. I read this quote & it rang truth to me & I when I find myself feeling this way I remember this quote & say it to myself.
