Measuring up!

I thought I was putting it out there, keeping it real with my weight measurements on display on the left hand side (<------look, over there!). And you will note that I've lost nearly 3kg and am below 170lbs again, since I decided I'm going to do this Transformation thingy.

 But it seems I can be doing a little more...

So, in the interests of being totally honest, and keeping myself accountable, here are the Pre-season measurements we are required to do:

The scary one is the waist! To be healthy (ie: not at risk of heart disease and cancer and all that really bad stuff), women are supposed to be below 80cm. Got a bit to lose and totally kidding myself if I think I'm OK. I'm not OK.

And the other big thing we had to do was a "BEFORE" shot. Preferably in two-piece swimmers (ie: showing as much flesh as decently possible) and holding a current newspaper or magazine so you can't cheat and use a fat photo from 2 years ago as your starting point. OK. Here goes. Are you ready ('cause I'm not!):

The only good thing about that photo is that 12 weeks from now I'll be looking a whole lot better. 

OK. I'm going now before I die of embarrassment.


  1. You've a braver soul than I. I don't even own a 2 piece. I'll be applauding your progress.

    1. It's not a 2 piece - it's black bra and undies because I don't own one of those either. As if! There had better bloody be some progress after I posted that pic!!

  2. You are AWESOME! And you will do this! (as will I ... just more offline) 12 weeks you'll be LOVING this before picture as it will show others just what's possible! LOVE YOU!

    1. Awww - thanks Tam! I am hoping - no. I know you're right!

  3. Don't be embarrassed! You are so brave! Your before photo looks a hell of a lot better than mine. And as you said, in 12 weeks it wont matter because you will be so much happier with the new photo.
    It all begins tomorrow. We can do this!


Bloggers LOVE comments! We are pretty needy that way, so go on, leave some love :-)
