My Review of T25: Part One

I started writing this review, and it quickly became a book. So I'm breaking it down into three parts: the results, the beginning and the process.

The results:

I'm SO happy that I tried T25! 

This exercise program worked really well for me. I was consistent in my commitment to 25 minutes a day, and I met my modest "weight loss" goals. I wanted to lose 2" from my waist and fit into a size 8 comfortably. I have no scale, but I've gained so much muscle mass that the scale wouldn't give an accurate account anyway. Here are my numbers from 11/12/2013 and 4/19/2014:

@ chest: 35" before and 32-7/8" after
below chest: 31" before and 29-3/4"
arms:12" before and 11" after
waist 1" above belly button: 31-3/4" before and 27-3/4" after
waist 1" below belly button: 35-1/2" before and 31-3/4" after
hips/butt: 40-1/2" before and 36-3/4" after
thighs: 24" before and 22-1/8" after

I lost 4" from my waist...

rather than just the 2" I was hoping to lose. My legs will always be a work in progress - that's where my body happens to hold on to fat. As for the clothes, well, it's been a long time since I shopped. Sizing is more cuckoo than ever. The things that are fitting best right now are size 4's and 6's! Crazy town!

It hasn't been easy, but my head was in the right place at the right time and it all came together for me. I'm a proponent of finding what works for you and finding support that empowers you. If you are on Facebook, you might find some extra motivation from my friend Michelle at Michelle is Living Well. I definitely did and can't thank her enough!

Note: Although I do have terrible cell-phone before and after pictures, I just can't bring myself to post them here.
