Katy Slimdown Challenge - day one

I received our "Day One Email" from Jason Hodge, with Medical Fitness Pros - he is the Slimdown Challenge Ring Leader. Our challenge for today is to write down our goals. Why are we doing this? What do we want to receive from this experience? Hmmm.. There are just SOOO many reasons. Let me see if I can put this into words.

The simple version - I would like to lose 30 pounds. Since Madi was born, I have had a difficult time - health issues, emotional issues, and now weight issues. I am carrying enough excess weight to create a small child. Yuck, when you think about it.

I've never had a weight issues... Many of you know that I was less than 100 pounds, most of my younger life. I believe I hit 105, just before my pregnancy with Cy (12 years ago), oh - I was in my late 20's at that point. I think most of us want to turn back the clock and look young again. ME ME ME.. Now reality is - 105 pounds is just not healthy for me, a dream, yes - reality - nope.

My goal is to return to a size 2-4 and return tone to this short body. I would say that I would love to be 110 pounds... but - as most of us know - muscle weighs more, so - I'm not putting too much into the end weight number. I have this beautiful wardrobe with size 2/4 clothes and I'd like to wear them again.

So - at my weigh in on Monday - my "stats" are:
Height: 5 ft 1in
Weight: 140
Chest: 35
Waist: 34
Hips: 41 (YUCK)
I didn't write down my leg and arm measurements....

Oh - you are so brave to post this online! I'm very proud of you! I would like to lose 30 pounds myself, so I'll be thinking about you while I'm watching what I eat and exercising. :)
