So a lot has changed since the first challenge – I was finally able to have my skin removal surgery, my J returned from Afghanistan and we moved 4000 miles away to a beautiful island.  Nothing like perfect weather to be the setting for getting back in shape.  And in the two months since my surgery, my confidence has bloomed but my muscles have not.  I’ve also been eating like I just discovered junk food.  So my hope is that I can find a healthy motivation that does not become an obsession.  I don’t want to focus on calories and pounds, but that’s always easier said than done.

So, I’m doing approximately 50 different challenges right now, so I figured, what’s one more? I’ve got a step challenge thru work, and four different ones thru a fitness group I’m in on FB (giving up diet coke and ice cream for 30 days, trying to do 75 push-ups in a row the next 60 days, and run an 8 min mile in the next 60 days). I’m hoping I can meet these goals and keep up with this challenge too!

Weight: 130 lbs
Waist: 29″, Hips: 39″, Chest: 36″, Each bicep (flexed): 12″

I lost 30 pounds after I had my daughter but can’t seem to get back to that weight/body since having my son (he’s three).  I would like to lose the flab and build more self confidence in myself.  I love competition and pushing myself to my limits.  I am struggling with a bum knee which has kept me from exercising as much as I would like.  I hate diets but I also don’t eat unhealthy too often.  I can’t wait to meet my challengers.

Starting info (11/3):
Weight: 143.8
Bust: 36″, Waist: 31″, Biceps: 12″, Upper thighs: 34.75″, Hips: 40″, Left calf: 14.5″, Right calf: 14″

Raendra, 33
I put on a lot of weight while having my 3 boys within 3 years.  In the past year and a half I have dropped over 35 lbs 2 different times- only to gain it right back.  My deepest desire is to have a healthy relationship with food- not the diet and binge eating roller coaster I have been on.  I need some accountability and I have hope that I can make this change.  My goal is to be more mindful of how I feed my body and to be more creative in finding opportunities to exercise!

Starting info (11/3):
Bust: 41″, Waist: 44″, Thighs: 24.5″

Jessii, 31
I am currently not real happy with myself. I have put on a lot of weight in the past few months. I’ve actually gained back nearly 30 pounds, nearly half of what I had lost. Not good. And I currently have an injury, so I am limited on what type of exercise I can do. My goal with this image challenge is to really refocus. Start over. Relearn things. Ease into it. And I want to feel comfortable again. I am so uncomfortable all the time right now. I want to feel comfortable in my own skin. I know that I can do it!

Starting info (11/3):
Weight: 182.8
Neck: 13.375″, Upper Arm: 12.5″, Forearm: 10″, Wrist: 6.25″, Chest: 37.25″, Waist 1: 40.875″, Waist 2: 43″, Hips: 43″, Abductors: 41″, Upper Thigh: 26.5″, Knee: 18.5″, Calf: 16″, Ankle: 9.625″

Ok here I go. This was very hard for me. I am doing this for me. I hate what I have become which is the old me. I have lost over 100 pounds 6 years ago and now I’m back here… I hope this gives me the motivation to be a better person for myself and my family.
