(down from 198+ lbs when i first started this thread). this is my weight in the evening in just shorts.
but now im kind of miss that old stringent , toned look . im toned now , but when i was 167 two years ago i had that sort of stringent runner's look .
im on a new mission for a new '20lb loss challenge'
and see if i can set a new record of reaching my college weight of 157lbs
. my body was
back then. im going to see if i can reach it by sometime first quarter next year.
well, now im down to 173 lbs. im not really even trying anymore. it's been more than 6 months of sensible eating w occasional relapses and the daily cardio/running for about 45 minutes and minimal weights.
this time i am concentrating a lot on my core: lower back exercises, lower abs, tranverse abdominals (suction/vacuum exercises yoga type) , kegels (yes, good for men too).
i try to do the cardio every day if i can. if i cant, well then i cant. but i dont schedule or mandate myself "i have to do 5 days a week" or anything like that, what may will be.
i think my weight now is ideal and even 31 waist jeans (32 ande whall or tts raw jeans) i have to wear with a belt or they slip down throoughout the day. i may be well going down to 160s perhaps but im afraid ill have to get a whole new set of jeans..
