That's what I weigh currently.
Holy schmoly. That's really little for me.
I've hovered around 140-142 for the better part of at least a year.
I've dropped a significant amount of body fat and replaced it with muscle in that time period.
Currently, my body fat is at 18.5%.
I put on my size 6 Express shorts the other day and they were extremely baggy.
So I put on my size 4 LOFT shorts (lezbehonest, it's really like a 6 because of the vanity sizing) and they were HUGE on me.
I don't own any other 4's.
Looks like it's time to go pant shopping.
Trust me, I know how dicky this sounds, "oh boo hoo my size 6's don't fit", but if you knew where I came from, you'd get it.
I came from a size 18.
From being so depressed trying to wiggle into jeans in the dressing room that it reduced me to tears.
Do you know what it feels like to cry uncontrollably in a dressing room?
Do you know how it feels to then have to compose yourself so you can walk out of said dressing room like you weren't just so upset with yourself for what you've done to your body?
And it sucks.
So to be at a point where I am still continually making progress and seeing changes is so rewarding.
Albeit, slow progress, but it's STILL PROGRESS!
It's no secret that I'm going through a rough time right now and that, I believe, has aided in my weight loss lately.
My diet has been all over the place.
I forget to eat a lot or have no appetite. And I know how bad that is, and I am definitely not preaching that that's a healthy thing, IT'S NOT.
It's just my reality right now. I'm working on that.
To fix it I have started this week off with a cleanse.
It will get me back on track with a regular scheduled diet that focuses on whole, clean foods.
I have been hitting the gym hard with my workouts, lifting heavy 5-6 days a week. I am still getting in my sprints 3 times a week.
I am continually improving in my lifts, hitting PR's, better times, heavier weight, etc. So I know I'm getting stronger and building some good muscle.
I am still terrified about competing. I think the closer it gets, the more I'm freaking out.
My diet has got to be ON POINT these last 9 weeks. And it will be.
I've still got a ways to go, but I'm confident I can get through anything.
