This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Curves/Avon Study Update

Note: I'm not sure why Blogger put such a big space between the paragraph and the chart. It won't let me fix it at this time, but I'll try again later. *edit* I've tried several times now, it's still not working.

As I mentioned in this post, my friend and I joined Curves as part of a study. We were required to do 12 workouts for the study. I have surpassed my 12 workouts and I went for my final measurements today. I am pleased to say that I actually got some positive results!

Now, I'm going to totally embarrass myself and share my numbers... so check it out!:



































BeforeAfter
Bust45.7543
Waist4443
Abs49.548
Hips52.2552
Thighs28.526
Arms1313
Weight225221.8
Body Fat43.3%43%
BMI37.5%36.9%


I am really proud of myself for sticking with this for the whole month! We received 50 percent off a membership if we sign up after this study. I think I am going to go for it! The numbers dropping is definitely motivation for me!

According to the scale, my weight fluctuated between 3 and 5 lbs below the original weight. Since I wasn't changing my eating habits, this was no surprise to me. I'm just glad that it was going down! I hope I can eventually cut down the sugar intake (my Cola addiction) and that will probably help alot too. I think I'll have to do that gradually.

Keep rooting for me and I'll keep you posted with my progress. And maybe someday even post weight loss photos!
