I did it. I sported a bikini on Christmas Day! The challenge I’d tagged on Twitter as #XmasBikini2012 has been met.
Ok, not out in the snow or anything, obviously. I arrived at the parents’ house decked out in my gay apparel I had donned, but then changed into the bikini for a bit of show and tell.
The show was the easy part; the tell required math. Here’s the breakdown:
Starting weight: 261
Current weight: 176
Starting waist: 41″
Current waist: 33″
Starting gunt: 47″
Current gunt: 38.5″ (and soon to be gone – I hope!)
Starting hips: 47″
Current hips: 38.75″
Starting size: 22
Current size: 12
I feel like a rockstar! Seriously, breaking it down by the numbers I’ve been tracking in my food journal makes me see how far I’ve really come.
So now, A New Challenge
I still haven’t lost 100 lbs yet. I’ve been very slow – though consistent – with my weight loss. My gentleman friend bought me a spa certificate for Christmas. I shall make it my reward for losing the 100.
The spa is one of those outdoor Nordic deals, with hot and cold tubs built right into the landscape. It’s co-ed, so a bathing suit is required.
I shall go to the spa for my massage appointment by February 1, sporting my new bikini for the baths, having lost 100 lbs.
The tag on Twitter shall be #SpaDay2013
Here’s hoping I will have surpassed that 100, too!
February 1. Stay tuned, folks!
