Slimming my Brimming Waist – Weeks 7 and 8 Progress

I owe you all an apology for not posting my progress last week. I felt it more important to spend time with the family since I had been out of town

I appreciate those of you who expressed concern that I did not post, I am still going.

I received back the results from the Bod Pod and InBody %body fat analysis I had done on the 10th of February.

Here is a video clip of my results:

  1. You’re doing GREAT! I admire your tenacity. If I tried to do this level of activity at my age and fitness level, I’d be passed out. On the floor. In an ocean of sweat. In five minutes, maybe less. But! I’d be wearing cute workout clothes–for a chubby (not old!) lady. Haha! Keep going!
