Starting Stats

Okay today I had James take some of my measurements and take a picture of me in my bra and panties to show the front, side and back view. While I am a pretty open person, very open, I am not ready to show those pictures out on the Internet JUST yet. While I promise to post them side by side with the end pictures, I am not ready for just the beginning yet.

I do have to say I was surprised at how I looked. While I think I looked terrible, the more I looked at the pictures, all I could see is how far I had come and really took a look at my body and where I once was and I am very excited to take it to the next level with this training.

So here are some of my measurements

Bust: 35 in
Arms (Biceps) : 13 1/2 in
Thighs: 25 in
Waist: 35, Size around 8 or 6 depending on pants of shorts and brand
Calves: 17 in
Shirt size: Small or medium depending on brand

I don't keep a scale at my house so I will use the weight I had when I weighed in this past Tuesday, which is 159. I will still continue to weigh in every week with Weight Watchers, I will not keep one in my house. Me signing up for a marathon has nothing to do with me losing weight or weight loss or anything with Weight Watchers. It is about me conquering a fear and taking on a challenge and changing me from the inside and I am sure I will see some change on the outside.

I want to see not only my mental emotions but physical. Right now in my life everything is great. I have energy and I sleep pretty well. I take a B12 vitamin every day along with a Multi Vitamin and a Green Tea Complex vitamin too, to help boost my metabolism. I know I have a bit of a thyroid issue, I am going to the doctors in two weeks to check back with that. I know the medicine will help me have more energy also, I think that is what I fear most, is enough energy.

I am happy and excited and ready to just have a routine every day.

This is me, real and raw, ready for anything and everything that is paved ahead of me!
