I have had an AMAZING 2009. But I am ready for 2010!

Let’s talk numbers.

Arms: 12.5 inches

Bust ( w/ double bra): 37 inches

Abs ( around belly button): 37 inches

Butt: 40.5 inches

Biggest part of Thigh: 23 inches

Height: 5 feet 2 3/4 inches

Weight as of Dec 31st 2009: 156.5

BMI: 27.2 ( I put myself in as 5′ 3”)

Overweight = 25-29.9

140.5 puts me at a normal weight. Which is a loss of 16 lbs.

I know BMI is not the most accurate thing in the world- but it is a pretty decent indicator of where things need to be.

The facts.

  • I have not worked out for 10 months due to a lower spine fracture.
  • I have not been on an diet- I basically eat whatever I am in the mood for. Indian, American, junk. All.

The results.

Yes, I made these pictures as tiny as possible. Because who really wants to post unflattering pictures of themselves on the internet? But I don’t think my pictures are that bad.

I love the way I look!

( Sorry Mom& Dad! I don’t dress like this in public)

-This is necessary if you come from a conservative Muslim family ๐Ÿ™‚

So what now?

  • I would like to be at a normal weight range for my body that I can maintain ( 140.5).
  • I don’t want to feel like I need to unbutton my pants at the end of each meal.
  • I want to remind myself that I don’t need to eat a lot to be full.
  • I don’t need to eat candy/ m&m’s when I am upset or stressed out with school.
  • I want to exercise for at least 60 mins a day at minimum.
  • I don’t want to feel like an unfit group fitness instructor.
  • I want to keep track of all my meals and workouts daily on my blog to make sure I am keeping up with my plan.
  • I want to feel and be fit and toned.
  • I want to stay injury free and healthy!

Lastly- I want to be a runner!

Oct 16th 2010 here I come!

I don’t have a particular goal I would be happy doing the 5k or 1/2 marathon but 9 months is a long time from now so I have no idea where I will be at that point.

I don’t even know if I will be able to run post-injury. They did mention something about walkers. I will do that.

I have joined Elliptical Challenge 2010 on the lovely Kelly’s blog!

I am off to get ready for a lovely New Year’s eve with the family.

Lots of love and happiness to everyone in 2010!

  10. I don’t care what the numbers say…I think you look amazing!

    I feel the same way that you do about feeling like an unfit personal trainer…2010 will be better!

  11. Awesome goals!! I think that crunching specific numbers like this is so important and a crucial part of success when it comes to things like weight loss. I have a tendency to be too vague…it’s inspiring to see all your specifics!

  12. You look amazing! Good luck with your back problems and goals for next year.

  13. I think you look great!

    I can definitely relate to your “so what now?”s. We should try to keep ourselves accountable (online fun!), because I would like to do all those things as well.

    Good luck! We can do it!
