While quilting, working and waiting for my Achilles tendon to heal, so I can start running again (and dreaming of a triathlon), I am still working on my weight loss. Even in the US, during my visit in Grand Rapids I managed to lose weight. I was so proud to manage that! All my readers in the US: kudoos to you! Chosing a healthy menu in the US eating out is a challenge on it's own...
Now my vacation is over I checked the result of my vacation: 23 pounds lost in total, of which 3 during my vacation. That means I managed the 10% loss of total body weight, which has it's advantages in height of blood sugar, blood pressure, risk of all kinds of diseases and what more. However, 10% of my body weight is not enough... I need to lose more than 1/3 of my body weight, based on height, muscle build and posture.
To keep me motivated I check out websites and all. I am not as far that I can post a before and now, the difference is too little in my eyes. But I checked out this website where you can model your weight loss. I adapted the model to look a bit like me (does it match?;-)) and filled in the numbers of my starting weight, my current weight and my goal weight.
No, it's not a picture. I do have cellulite, my boobs are gravity challenged, my thighs are way bigger and at my highest weight I did not have a waist. But the idea is great!

The difference is little, but I do some change on the waist, hips and upper body...

Have fun quilting!
